Panasonic Lumix FX8

 

The Panasonic Lumix FX8 is an ultra-compact camera with a very useful feature not found on most competition: Optical image stabilization. Other than that, the Panasonic Lumix FX8 also includes a 2.5 inch LCD, full-fledged movie mode and excellent...

Ultra-compact and stylish ; Great battery life ; Optical image stabilization ; Large LCD ; Extremely fast ; Unlimited continuous shooting ; Excellent movie mode ; User friendly ; Noise levels slightly lower than on FX9 ; Good photo quality

No manual controls ; Low resolution LCD ; Low FPS rate for "infinite shooting ; Flimsy battery/card cover ; Red-eye ; Some soft photos ; No movie zoom

The Panasonic Lumix FX8 is a great camera: 5 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD, great battery life and best of all, optical image stabilization. The 2.5 inch LCD resolution is still the same as on the FX7 but is a lot brighter. OIS is not something you'll see...

A wonderful camera that looks good, feels good and takes great shots. Highly recommended.

Small, stylish, very fast, great colour, nice features

Still very minor lag in certain spots, missing a few features that experienced photographers may want

On the other side, the camera does come with shock-absorbent quality but some of the pictures I took were still blurry, so it takes some time to learn how to produce great still pictures with it. It doesn’t take long, you’ll know soon and you’ll fall...
