Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 (Black) review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 (Black)

 

With casual snapshooters opting more and more for a good-enough smartphone instead of a dedicated camera, it's not a big surprise that manufacturers are hungry for ways to get point-and-shoots similar functionality. Currently, that means putting Wi-Fi...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 has a bright f2.5 ultrawide-angle Leica lens and good shooting performance for its class. Its built-in Wi-Fi lets you back up photos and movies to your PC, send them to your smartphone or Panasonic AV device, and upload to...

The FX90's convoluted Wi-Fi setup made me want to smash the camera to bits. For its price, its photo quality is disappointing.

While adding Wi-Fi to a point-and-shoot is a solid way to compete with smartphones, Panasonic fumbles it a bit with the Lumix DMC-FX90.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 is a small digital compact camera designed to appeal to the tech-savvy. Bursting with features such as wi-fi, touch-screen LCD, a Leica lens, Mega Optical Image STabilisation and SDXC card compatibility, the FX90 also...

In times gone by it was a simple rule of thumb that if you wanted to get a digital compact camera, you went for an optical company such as Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Olympus. As an electronics company, Panasonic has helped turn that tide and is now one of...

The FX90 succeeds the FX78, a mid-range touchscreen model from Panasonic that had little to offer in the way of stand out features. The FX90 continues in this same vein but adds WiFi. The 12 megapixel sensor, which garnered a lukewarm reception in...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 Review: Connected and Capable

 

The Panasonic FX90 is a highly competent, well-made camera with many strengths and a few weaknesses. It's attractive with good build quality, though I have a few minor quibbles with its ergonomics, particularly its tiny zoom lever. It shoots quickly...

Wi-Fi works well, Very attractive, Quick performer

Access to submenus for commonly-used actions, Overexposure can be a problem

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90

 

The Panasonic FX90 packs in many up-to-date features: there's a 3-inch touchscreen and 24-120mm zoom lens to control all the action, met with Wi-Fi technology and 1080i HD movie capture. The FX90 isn't so different from its FX70 predecessor. Granted...

Touschreen-based focusing, up to date features, Wi-Fi technology, 3cm wide-angle macro mode, optical stabilisation, colourful images, small size

Poor battery life, touchscreen can slow access to some settings and won’t match up to smartphone standards, zoom toggle too small and poorly placed

The FX90 isn’t so different from its FX70 predecessor. Granted there’s the inclusion of Wi-Fi that, while nice to have, isn’t as useful as it at first seems, not least due to its huge negative impact on the camera’s battery life.

Panasonic Lumix FX90 review

 

A function-packed quality compact camera with Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi connectivity ; Good quality lens ; Excels at capturing people shots

Small menu icons ; Superfluous menu options

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 attempts to bridge the gap between a compact camera's ability to capture quality prints and a smartphone's ability to share shots to a social network.

Can the Lumix DMC-FX90's image quality match it's long list of features?. Since introducing its first digital camera as long ago as...

Feature packed, small and compact design

Disappointing image quality, confusing Wi-Fi integration, expensive

Even the best manufacturer can have its off-days, and the FX90 is certainly not one of Panasonic's better efforts. It's packed with advanced features like touch-screen, Wi-Fi and 3D imaging, but none of them work terribly well. The touch-screen...

Panasonic offers some excellent digital cameras and can normally be replied upon to produce crystal clear photos. As with previous reviews of cameras in the FX part of the range the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX90 just does not match up to those usual high...
