Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 has a hefty price comes but also a hefty features set including great-looking still images, blazing fast speed, a touch-screen LCD, a bright lens, and powerful HD video recording.

Great still images. Powerful video recording options. Bright lens (f/2.2). Touch-screen interface. Automatic and manual shooting. Negligible shutter lag. Fast burst mode.

Expensive. Dull LCD. Marginal high-ISO performance. Proprietary USB port.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 is loaded with features, as it should be with a near $400 MSRP. The lens is probably the main attraction for most potential buyers, and understandably so. Although many people are attracted to long zooms, the bright f2.2...

F2.2 ultrawide-angle lens; 1080i movie capture; fast performance; compact for its features.

Disappointing low-light/high-ISO photos; smallish low-res touch screen; no raw capture.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 is a fast, feature-packed compact in need of some better low-light photo processing.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 Review

 

Captures sharp photos with pleasing colors.

Captures sharp photos with pleasing colors ; 5x optical zoom lens available while recording video ; 24mm wide angle extreme is one of the widest available in a camera of this size ; High Quality AVCHD movie capture ; Fast and accurate Touchscreen GUI ;...

Some may think $400 is a hefty price tag ; Produced small % of exposures that were a bit strong under harsh sunlight ; Higher luminance noise that we'd like to see (which has been typical of these 14-megapixel sensors)

Panasonic has taken a great camera (the DMC-FX75) and made it even better with the all new Lumix DMC-FX700. This model boasts their latest and greatest Lumix technologies packed into a diminutive frame that can be tucked away in the smallest handbag or...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 is a new touch-screen digital compact camera. Offering a large 3.0-inch LCD with full touch control, the 14.1 megapixel FX700 also features a bright f/2.2, 24-120mm 5x zoom lens, Full HD video at 1920 x 1080 pixels in the...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 adds two significant improvements, Full HD video and manual control over exposure, to the much cheaper FX70 model, but unfortunately does so at the expense of still image quality, with slow ISO speeds suffering from...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700

 

The Panasonic Lumix FX700 is a 14 megapixel compact with a 5x stabilised zoom and a 3 inch touch-screen display. At its heart is a newly engineered 14 Megapixel CMOS sensor which combined with the latest Venus FHD processor provides a range of fast...

PASM exposure modes., Fast burst shooting modes., Excellent battery life., 24mm super-wide angle

Less than sparkling image quality., Touch icons small and cramped., Physical switch for rec/playback mode., Erratic continuous shooting performance

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700

 

At first glance the 14.1-megapixel, 5x optical zoom Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 “travel zoom” compact closely resembles the previously reviewed DMC-FX70 , with which it shares the same sized sensor; namely it's a conventionally boxy looking pocket...

Reasonably easy to use, Full HD video clips with stereo sound, compact, lightweight and unobtrusive, 5x optical zoom can be used when recording video, dedicated video record button makes for more user friendly operation

Costly, if going by the manufacturer’s recommended price, noticeable loss of quality at highest ISO equivalents

Whilst in general terms the above suggests the FX700 is just what’s required for anyone looking for a point and shoot equipped with most of the current must haves, it does come at a price. Although the manufacturer’s suggested price is a rather high...
