Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33

 

As far ultra compact digicams go, the Panasonic Lumix FX33 fits perfectly in that category – no question about it. With regard to this particular type of gadgetry at least, size does matter, though what you do with it counts as well. What I meant was...

The Bottomline Though 8 megapixels with 3x optical zoom may not seem adequate for a camera in this price range, on the whole the FX33 is a great product. At Rs 16,000 I think it’s worth it. It’s slim and sleek, and with its superb iA feature you just...

The DMC-FX33 takes better point-and-shoot photos than your typical pocket camera.

Very good image quality; smart automatic mode; wide-angle lens; numerous scene presets; effective image stabilization

Few manual settings; slow startup

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

I keep revising my opinion for the better. I purchased this cheap when the FX35 came out as a P&S backup to my Nikon DSLR. It is a lovely object, that has excellent handling, and a useful 28mm equivalent of excellent quality. Pixel peeping at 100%...

Usual small sensor issues, i.e. limited DR and smearing and detail loss above ISO 400

I purchased this cheap when the FX35 came out as a P&S backup to my Nikon DSLR. It is a lovely object, that has excellent handling, and the lens quality is excellent too. The issue is with low ISO noise, to the point where I recently got a Fuji...

Only low ISO noise. If it was clean at ISO 100 with minimal NR smoothing it would be awesome, but although NR is gentle, noise (often) is not

This is a great little camera. I've had many digital cameras including the Sony N1. This camera in my opinion is better. The pictures are easy to take and so clear. It is smaller and easy to put in your pocket. A great camera.

Panasonic has a real gemn ion the FX33 and it's no wonder that subsequent editions have not topped it in the available reviews. The focus ability is outstanding, especially because of the fine stabilizer system. The macro capabilities are the best...

No problems at all after two weeks of heavy use.
