PC ADVISOR - Best Buy

Expert review by : PC Advisor staff (techadvisor.co.uk)

Panasonic DMC-FX12

 

A stylish camera that represents outstanding value for money, we loved the Panasonic DMC-FX12 so much we handed it a PC Advisor Best Buy award.

Cool looks, excellent features and brilliant image quality. Throw in fantastic value at a list price of £170 (you can get the Panasonic DMC-FX12 cheaper online), and you have a camera that is, quite simply, the best compact on the market today.

I'd buy this for my mother

 

Little shutterlag, good responsiveness, decent battery life, LOTS of variable settings, great fireworks shots.

no manual customization. TERRIBLE Macro. Slow, sometimes inaccurate focus. Very small internal memory.
