Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Review

In the space of a few short years Panasonic has come from nowhere to become one of the key players in the digital camera market. And it has done so not by clever marketing or particularly aggressive pricing, but by taking risks, by going off on...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01

 

The Lumix FX01 proves to be a compact shooter that performs, just like its previous incarnations, though it misses the mark in terms of image quality.

Wide-angle (28mm) lens ; Wide-aspect video recording at 30fps ; Dual image stabilisation ; High Angle LCD ; Uses same battery and charger as FX9 and FX8

No manual features or optical viewfinder ; Slight barrel distortions at 28mm wide angle ; Chromatic aberrations in the form of blooming and purple fringing ; Unable to select desired ISO level in High Sensitivity mode

Noise levels were relatively well contained even at the maximum ISO level of 1,600 which surprised us. While noise was noticeable almost throughout the various ISO settings, it shouldn't affect users making small prints. That said, we were unable to...
