Expert review by : Tracey Capen (



Panasonic's nicely designed, elegantly styled Lumix DMC-FX100 is a near-twin to the Lumix DMC-FX55. Both are reasonably small and light, though they won't slip comfortably into a shirt pocket.

Smooth, precise lens mechanism Solid construction

Pricey for a pocket camera Short labor warranty (90 days)

The DMC-FX100 is a pleasing package--solidly constructed, with flexible, user-friendly controls and a high resolution for really big prints

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 review


Panasonic follows the if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it logic by keeping the body design essentially the same as that of their other FX-series cameras. The 3.6x optical, 28mm-to-100mm (equivalent), f/2.8-to-f/5.6 zoom lens extends from the front of the...

Wide-angle 3.6x optical zoom lens; Intelligent ISO mode; optical image stabilization.

Noisy images above ISO 400; sluggish shot-to-shot and startup-to-first-shot times.

If you absolutely must have a 12-megapixel compact camera, the DMC-FX100 isn't a bad choice, but you can find better performing cameras with lower pixel counts for the same money.

The ultra-compact camera arena is a crowded one. Can the DMC-FX100 keep up with the competition? Find out now in our review

Very good photo quality at lowest ISO settings (though see issues below) ; Wide-angle 3.6X optical zoom lens ; Optical image stabilization ; Ultra-compact metal body, comes in two colors ; Large, sharp 2.5" LCD display; screen visible outdoors and in...

Noise reduction smears details when ISO is 200 or above ; Corner blurriness, redeye are both problems ; 720p movie mode only 15 frames/second ; High sensitivity mode not terrible useful ; No optical viewfinder ; Flimsy door over battery/memory card...

In conclusion, I like the Lumix DMC-FX100, and can recommend it. At the same time, I'd say that the 12 Megapixel resolution is overkill for the vast majority of people, and that buying one of the lower resolution Panasonic ultra-compacts would be a...

Lumix DMC-FX100 digital camera


The Panasonic DMC-FX100K is streamlined enough not to baffle novice users, but even seasoned shutterbugs ought to consider this is as a backup to their SLR or DSLR.

Easy-to-navigate interface ; Wide-angle lens ; 12-megapixel sensor ; Good detail and exposure

No manual controls ; Mediocre battery life

Serious shutterbugs may be disappointed at the lack of manual exposure controls, but in our Macworld Lab tests, there was little reason to second-guess the camera's calculations. The DMC-FX100achieved Good scores for image and flash quality, and Very...

When one manufacturer makes a 12-megapixel compact camera, everyone else has to make one too.

Panasonic Lumix FX100 review


Is this the perfect compact from Panasonic?

Excellent build, and a great lens ; Good image quality, with little noise

Small buttons ; Feature set could be better

You might have thought the megapixel war was over but Panasonic has reignited it with the FX100. This is more than just a muscle-flexing exercise, though, as the image quality is superb. But for photographers who do want this level of resolution the...
