Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX10


I bought this for third camera, which would be always in my pocket. I bought this because at the moment this was cheapest available P&S in my home town. I'd really like have some more manual control. Biggest issue for me is that I cannot change...

LCD is fairly poor ; Noise reduction spoils images in higher sensitivities

Just bought the FX10 a few weeks ago... I know that there are newer cameras available since the launch of the FX10 and that they have more features. But the FX10 suits me enough with the low price and nice features plus the nice Leica lens. I really...

The plastic door for the USB/Video connector can be a worry because it looks like it can break if you accidentally pushed it open too wide ; Indoor pictures can be too dark and grainy

Small and practical Point and Shoot. Great for everyday life. I use it in my handbag everyday. I love the quality of the image. Very decent for the size of the sensor. A great pocket camera!

Used properly one can get some really excellent daytime shots out of this camera. Beautifully made and reasonably priced, I'm growing fonder of the Panasonics daily as really nice cameras. I don't do party shots but as a small carry around pocket...

Nice design, nice features etc. Image quality terrible indoors. It's not a social p&s. IQ outside doesn't make up for the indoor iQ.

Image quality worse than most. Just plain Awful.

Im not a techy when it comes to Digital Cameras...just a point and shooter here :) Been using a Sony digi cams for the nth time and decided to venture into a new brand. I really like the features of the DMC FX10. Smart ISO, the framing 16:9, the ...

Owners Opinion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX10 (wlachan, 28 Apr 07)


This is a nicely designed and well made camera. I pretty much like everything about it. From what I can see, it works very well in daylight environments, AWB works great, AF is fast, video is good too, but the PARTY mode for indoor is a joke. Instead...

Like other Panasonic models, smear effect of noise control is evident at any ISO, but gets annoying from iso250 or higher, and becomes intolerable with the slightest underexposure. Anything higher than iso200 doesn't look that good, and iso800 & 1250...

I redeemed this camera from thankyou network. It is a very good camera. The photo quality is good and your photos will come out clear because of the mega optical image stabilizer. Zoom is limited though because this camera only has 3x optical zoom....

Decent photo quality, Mega OIS

3x zoom only
