Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX38

 

Digital cameras are increasingly getting less bulky these days. Come to think of it, irrespective of their size these little beauties come with a wide angle lens, decent amount of zoom and an Intelligent Auto mode that automatically decides the best...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX38 is a decent camera that averages out in the performance front. Moreover the camera does well in maintaining the overall color balance and keeps fringing at its minimum. There is nothing much to dislike other than the...

Panasonic DMC-FX38 (FX37) Review

 

Back in 2004 the earlier Panasonic FX7 was “pretty close to being the Rolls-Royce of digital compacts …” That was when five megapixels and a 3X zoom was top gear!

Some will take issue with me on the 10.1 megapixels figure and point out that by increasing the pixel density in digicams the camera delivers more noise in the final image. True, but for the average punter, a CCD of this capacity will enable the making...

Looking extremely similar to the DMC-FX36, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FX38 is another fantastic point-and-shoot camera. It sports a 10-megapixel sensor, an...

A great compact camera with a wide-angle lens, the FX38 has a few quibbles that prevent it from being an excellent point-and-shoot.

Power switch easy to accidentally turn on ; Finicky autofocus ; Some noise issues

For around AU$150 less, you could pick up the Canon IXUS 870IS which has a similarly wide lens (28mm) and fairly equivalent feature set, except without HD recording. Though if your heart is set on a Panasonic, the one advantage of the FX38 sharing so...

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX38

 

This capable shooter houses many useful features, but we didn't find much difference between the FX38 and its predecessor.

Sleek design; HD video recording; 25mm wide-angle-lens

Power switch easy to turn on accidentally; finicky autofocus; some noise issues

The Lumix DMC-FX38 is a capable point-and-shoot with a number of additional features that will sweeten the deal for many photographers, such as HD video recording and Panasonic's intelligent Auto function. However, it's so remarkably similar to its...

I have had this camera for about 2 years, and I still love it to death. It always takes great sharp pictures and is small and perfect to hide away. Its just as good as the day I brought it, and worth every cent. :)

"Brief comment"

 

Compared to the FX-33, it has better features and also cheaper than my FX-33 which I only bought slightly more than a year back

25mm

Anti-shake could be better
