Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75

 

The point-and-shoot Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 ($300 as of 10/20/2010) may seem like your typical touchscreen camera, but it distinguishes itself from the pack with a bright F2.2 lens, above-average video quality, and a few fancy features that might...

Fast autofocus speeds ; Very good video quality in bright light ; Very good image sharpness ; Helpful touch-to-focus controls ; Effective motion deblur mode and stabilization

Overpowering flash affects color and exposure ; Need to use a stylus for some touchscreen features ; No manual controls ; Touchscreen-and-button interface can be confusing ; Playback controls are unnecessarily complicated

The Lumix DMC-FX75 shoots very good video and sharp photos--but its touchscreen-and-physical-button combo isn't always efficient, and its overpowering flash affects overall image quality.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 offers an effective resolution of 14.1 megapixels. With an image-stabilized, Leica DC Vario-Summicron branded 5x optical zoom lens, the Panasonic FX75 offers a zoom range from a 24mm-equivalent wide-angle to a moderate...

Very wide-angle 5x zoom lens with effective optical image stabilization (24-120mm) ; Quality 720p AVCHD Lite movie mode (as well as Motion JPEG modes) ; HDMI output ; Fast-aperture (f/2.2) Leica-branded lens ; Good Optical Image Stabilization system ;...

Images are very noisy, even at lower ISO settings ; Touch-screen GUI needs improvement ; Tends to overexpose images ; LCD should be more than 230K dots ; No optical viewfinder ; No aperture or shutter speed adjustments other than through scene modes ;...

Printed: Taking just the center of the image into account, ISO 80 files from the Panasonic FX75 can handle printing at up to 13x19 inches. But if you consider the softening in the corners, these images are better printed at 11x14 or even 8x10 before...

Review: Panasonic Lumix FX75

 

Panasonic aims for a high quality but still simple compact camera.

Bright lens, fast autofocus ; Better than average in low light ; Overall good image quality ; Reasonably bright flash ; Good (though not great) 720p video ; 5X zoom ; Simple touchscreen UI; tap to shoot option

Still compact-like in the darkest scenes ; Not as fast as it could be for action ; Low-resolution LCD ; No viewfinder ; Price may be in hard to defend middle ground

Design, controls and expansionThe FX75 is handsomely finished with a metal and polycarbonate casing that features just enough trim to nicely contrast with the overall “blackness” of the body. The image-stabilized, Leica DC Vario-Summicron 4.3-21.

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 camera

 

The Lumix DMC-FX75 shoots very good video and sharp photos, but its touchscreen-and-physical-button combo isn't always efficient, and overall image quality is affected by its overpowering flash.

However, the camera can be frustrating to use in some ways: Many controls require you to employ both its physical buttons and its touchscreen, and the touchscreen itself is reliable only if you use the FX75's included stylus. What's more, the flash on...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 Review

 

The Panasonic FX75 got a lot of attention when it launched for its fast f/2.2 maximum aperture lens and a 3.0-inch touch screen, but how is performance across the board? Take a look at our analysis of the FX75.

Good image quality ; Quick shutter and AF speeds ; Fast lens at wide angle

LCD tricky in bright sunlight ; Slow aperture at telephoto ; Noise at ISO 400

Still, Panasonic continues to impress with their compact digitals, which do a fairly good job overall. The FX75 is just one of the latest additions to continue this tradition.
