Panasonic Lumix FS3

 

The Lumix FS3 (8 megapixels) and Lumix FS5 (10 megapixels) are two small point-and-shoot cameras from Panasonic. Both cameras pack the latest Venus Engine 4 processor, optical image stabilization, 2.5 inch LCDs, good battery life and many scene modes....

Stylish and good build quality (metal tripod mount is rare!) ; Optical image stabilization ; Very good battery life ; Fairly powerful flashes for cameras this size (Especially FS3) ; Above average camera performance ; Very good LCD visibility ; Plenty...

Limited manual controls (certainly no manual exposure here) ; No red eye removal and movie editing features ; Face Detection needs a direct, clear view of faces to work nicely ; Flimsy battery compartment door ; Finer details (ie fabric lines) removed...

The compact little Panasonic Lumix FS3 and FS5 cameras are two which have much to offer with their small designs, nice point-and-shoot operation and great performance. Set aside their minor differences, both cameras have features which casual picture...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Review

 

In many ways, the all-new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 - a new offering in a completely new series of models from the manufacturer - tries to be the best of both worlds, offering ultracompact style at what nearly qualifies as a budget compact price. In the...

Nice color processing with plenty of control, Build quality and style among the best for this price, Impressive high ISO performance, Great point-and-shoot usability with very good results

Menus can be clunky in places, Red-eye poorly controlled at times, Soft optics equals soft images, Timings not always first-tier

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3

 

Attractive price point, Auto Intelligent mode, impressive build quality

Buttons are too small for big fingers, underpowered optical zoom

The DMC-FS3 is capable of producing instant, good quality photos that will more than satisfy its intended user base of casual photographers. If you want to capture great looking shots with a minimum of effort, this compact camera will not disappoint.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 review

 

Everything on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 compact camera has been implemented to make the art of digital photography easier - including a Quick AF function that begins the camera focusing before the shutter release button is even half depressed.

If you’re buying a sub-£150 camera for image quality alone, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 would be the sensible choice.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 is an inexpensive point-and-shoot for casual shooters.

Proper flash exposure ; Flexibility in certain scene modes ; iA spot-on for most shooting situation during the day ; Quick start-up time

Slightly soft image ; Slow AF ; iA in low-light

We detected a slight hint of softness around the edges of our subjects, especially when taken in low-light situations. Although this might not show up on small prints, do take note that some image sharpening on the computer might be necessary if you...

Discover what this small, sleek camera has under the bonnet

This is a perfectly adequate camera for the amateur or occasional user. Enthusiasts will not take to the soft corners and noisy low-light pictures. It is, however, a very decent daylight shooter for the non-pros.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 is an 8Mp compact camera with a 4x optical zoom.
