Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 Camera Review - PCWorld

 

Superior battery life

No lens cover

Though the lens placement and button layout take some getting used to, the boxy and durable Lumix DMC-FP8 offers a quiet and quick wide-angle lens.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 review

 

Looking at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 you wouldn't think there's anything special about it; you'd think it's just another ultracompact point-and-shoot. To some extent that's true, but it actually attempts to address a common complaint plaguing most...

Small and lightweight; fast start-up and low shutter lag in good lighting; simple operation; great battery life.

Overcautious auto ISO; internal lens leads to fingers in shots; photos look slightly overprocessed.

The Lumix DMC-FP8 lives up to Panasonic's speedy performance claims; its photo quality isn't bad, either.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 is a new 12.1 megapixel compact camera with a 28mm, 4.6x Leica DC lens. The FP8 is quite different to previous designs from Panasonic, featuring a futuristic flat body and retracting lens with folding optics and blue LED...

The overall impression given by the Panasonic FP8 is that here we have another well built, intuitive to use, reliable performer that further bolsters the already praised Lumix range of compacts. However, that said, there's little about the FP8 that...

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 camera

 

The durable and compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 point-and-shoot camera offers an ultraquiet, recessed lens that focuses very quickly, but you'll need to make sure that its design works for you.

The 12-megapixel Lumix DMC-FP8 has a boxy but stylish frame, made out of metal and seemingly impervious to anyone with a mild case of fumble-itis. However, though the camera build is durable, the 4.6X-optical-zoom wide-angle lens (28mm to 128.8mm) is...

Panasonic DMC-FP8

 

Panasonic has released a new camera model, the Lumix DMC-FP8, and it has made some heads turn. A quick glance might impress casual customers and photographers with its rectangular, standard zoom compact style included with a 12 megapixel sensor...

Compact design ; Shoots 720p HD video ; Decent flash performance

Can be uncomfortable to hold for some ; Slow LCD monitor can make fast shooting difficult

All in all, the FP8 is a friendly camera to novice photographers by virtue of its sparkling AF performance and quite speedy shutter lag alone. The camera acquire focus quickly across a broad range of lighting conditions and takes the shot with little...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 – Unattractive Looks But A Genius Inside

 

The exterior of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 might make you think that this is just another camera that Panasonic has made to keep their pockets jingling. But a closer look at the features will reveal that the camera has been worked up in three main...

Fast start up, great battery life, low shutter lag, great battery life, superb performance

You might get your finger in between the lens when you are shooting, everything else about the camera rocks

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 is good for photo and video quality and speedy performance of the camera sweetens the deal. The only letdown is the unattractive looks. But if you don't care much about the looks and want a good performer, go buy this one!
