Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 (Black)


With casual snapshooters opting more and more for a good-enough smartphone instead of a dedicated camera, it's not a big surprise that manufacturers are hungry for ways to get point-and-shoots similar functionality. Currently, that means putting Wi-Fi...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 has a bright f2.5 ultrawide-angle Leica lens and good shooting performance for its class. Its built-in Wi-Fi lets you back up photos and movies to your PC, send them to your smartphone or Panasonic AV device, and upload to...

The FX90's convoluted Wi-Fi setup made me want to smash the camera to bits. For its price, its photo quality is disappointing.

While adding Wi-Fi to a point-and-shoot is a solid way to compete with smartphones, Panasonic fumbles it a bit with the Lumix DMC-FX90.

The FX90 succeeds the FX78, a mid-range touchscreen model from Panasonic that had little to offer in the way of stand out features. The FX90 continues in this same vein but adds WiFi. The 12 megapixel sensor, which garnered a lukewarm reception in...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 Review: Connected and Capable


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 is a small, thin, elegant camera that offers some interesting features. Chief among them is built-in Wi-Fi, which enables the wireless transfer of photos and movies to a computer, audio/visual device (such as a smart TV or...

Compact, stylish camera ; Effective Wi-Fi ; Quick performer

Awkward submenu interface ; Some overexposure ; Tiny zoom lever

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 feels like an experiment. The Wi-Fi connectivity is a great tool for bloggers and social networkers, but the image quality and features are weaker than most other point and shoot cameras. If you always have your smartphone...

The automatic settings adjust to most lighting situations

The Wi-Fi connectivity is hit or miss, and the initial connection is overly complicated

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 takes good pictures and is able to help you share those pictures online.

Wow! You can pack a lot into a slim body


Considering the 200 page manual it will take a while before you have had a chance to check out all the features (if ever)!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 review


The Panasonic FX90 packs in many up-to-date features: There's a 3-inch touchscreen and 24-120mm zoom lens to control all the action, met with Wi-Fi technology and 1080i HD movie capture.

Touschreen-based focusing, up to date features, Wi-Fi technology, 3cm wide-angle macro mode, optical stabilisation, colourful images, small size

Poor battery life, touchscreen can slow access to some settings and won’t match up to smartphone standards, zoom toggle too small and poorly placed

The Panasonic Lumix FX90 is small, well-built and packed full of features. While the touchscreen won’t see off Smartphone competitors it is great for literal hands-on autofocus. The 24mm wide-angle lens is capable for macro shots and the longest 120mm...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 attempts to bridge the gap between a compact camera's ability to capture quality prints and a smartphone's ability to share shots to a social network.

Wi-Fi connectivity ; Good quality lens ; Excels at capturing people shots

Small menu icons ; Superfluous menu options

Can the Lumix DMC-FX90's image quality match it's long list of features?. Since introducing its first digital camera as long ago as...

Feature packed, small and compact design

Disappointing image quality, confusing Wi-Fi integration, expensive

Even the best manufacturer can have its off-days, and the FX90 is certainly not one of Panasonic's better efforts. It's packed with advanced features like touch-screen, Wi-Fi and 3D imaging, but none of them work terribly well. The touch-screen...

Panasonic offers some excellent digital cameras and can normally be replied upon to produce crystal clear photos. As with previous reviews of cameras in the FX part of the range the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX90 just does not match up to those usual high...
