Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 7.16 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 ($399) is the highest resolution camera in Panasonic's ultra-compact lineup. It packs a whopping 12.2 million pixels on its tiny 1/1.72" CCD, producing images 4000 x 3000 in size. Other features on the FX100 include a 3.6X, 28 - 100 mm lens, optical image stabilization, a 2.5" LCD display, and a 720p movie mode (albeit at 15 frames/second). ...

... Writing this conclusion feels a bit strange. While the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 is a really nice ultra-compact camera, I think it's more than most people need. Why? Simply put, the 12 Megapixel CCD on the FX100 is overkill for the point-and-shoot crowd. If you're willing to give up a few million pixels, you can get the DMC-FX33 or DMC-FX55, which offer the same features, faster performance (due to smaller file sizes), and better image quality. ..."

Review (Summary): "The FX100 is a smallish compact camera bearing a strong family resemblance to other recent Panasonic compacts such as the FX33. However the styling of the FX100's body is somehow harder, with beveled edges and a slightly thicker and squarer shape. It has the same Leica-branded 3.6x zoom f2.8 - f5.6 lens as the FX33, with a wide-angle end equivalent to 28mm, considerably wider than most cameras from other brands. ...

... The Panasonic Lumix FX100 is a difficult camera. While it has excellent build quality, good performance and an exceptionally fine lens, its usefulness is limited by image noise problems. As it is it is hard to recommend it over the slightly cheaper FX33 (or even the FX55), which has a very similar range of features, better image quality and a lower price."
