Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Ultra Zoom review


Panasonic's pocket-sized Lumix DMC-FX7 looks to be just another 5-megapixel digital camera, but it has a big trick up its sleeve: it comes with a built-in optical image stabilizer, which helps you eliminate the blurry photos by letting you use slower...

Panasonic Lumix FX7 review: Panasonic Lumix FX7


With a Leica lens that lives up to its name and optical image stabilization that dampens the effect of the shakiest hands, this 5-megapixel ultracompact is an alluring camera for the snapshot photographer whose expectations can be summed up by the...

Optical image stabilization; solid image quality; versatile burst mode; large LCD; easy operation with no-brainer Simple mode.

No manual settings; low-res movie mode; poor LCD visibility in low light.

High-quality optics and two image stabilization modes deliver good image quality in an ultracompact package.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7


On paper, the ultracompact Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 seems like a winner.

Beautifully crafted. Image stabilization feature is unique in such a small camera. Large 2.5-inch LCD.

Images were noisy and unremarkable. Too much shutter lag if you don't prefocus.

As with the recently reviewed Canon PowerShot SD300 (IXUS 40i) the DMC-FX7 is the perfect pocket camera as long as you don't expect miracles and are prepared to accept a certain amount of compromise on features and image quality.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Review


Announced at the end of July (alongside the lower-spec FX2), the DMC-FX7 is an ultra-compact replacement for the well-respected FX5. As well as being smaller than the FX5, the FX7 boasts the Venus II engine for improved responsiveness and the new...

High resolution, clean images Subtle, detailed images Good noise control at ISO 80-200 High quality construction, lovely design Good edge-to-edge sharpness Excellent white balance Feels fast and responsive Big, bright screen Reliable exposure and focus...

Battery life Some blown highlights Occasional mild color casts when shooting in very bright light Some focus problems in low light Size and design makes camera shake more likely Easy to accidentally press buttons you don't mean to

As with the recently reviewed Canon PowerShot SD300 (IXUS 40i) the DMC-FX7 is the perfect pocket camera as long as you don't expect miracles and are prepared to accept a certain amount of compromise on features and image quality.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7


The camera is available in black and silver bodies

Very good photo quality ; Compact, stylish metal body; available in two colors ; Image stabilization system ; Huge LCD display (but see negatives below) ; AF-assist lamp ; Robust performance, especially with a high speed SD card ; Good continuous...

Redeye ; No optical viewfinder ; LCD resolution isn't great; screen can be hard to see in low light ; Flimsy plastic door over battery/memory card slot ; A VGA movie mode would've been nice ; Below average battery life ; Small memory card included

There are a couple of things that I didn't like about the FX7, and I mentioned a few of them above. Other things include the lack of an optical viewfinder, major redeye in flash shots, below average battery life, and a so-so movie mode. Despite all...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7


If you haven't already guessed I like the FX7. It has a combination of high-technology features such as the large 2.5-inch screen and optical image stabilisation that make it a cut above and that's before we get to the stylish all-metal and oh so shiny...

Nice, clean high-resolution images combine with fair noise suppression and responsiveness. Exposure is good as is white balance and the image stabilization is excellent to say nothing of the large 2.5-inch screen and great styling.

Low battery life marred an otherwise accomplished bit of kit, highlights in contrasty shots become blown quickly and there’s few focus issues in low light. My one other gripe is the menu system that requires the double selection of any settings.

Given the manufacturers pedigree; until two years ago it did not really have one for digicams, the FX7 is testament to the companies back room boffins, which have consistently produced stingingly good cameras since Panasonic got serious about digital...
