Good lens&features + compact size

Summary: That's a fine compact camera: the Leica lens provide crisp sharp images, the menus are well-built, the display is visible even in sunlight. The metal case is elegant and protects the device. Maybe the only bad thing is the flash : too small and too close to the optical axis: Red-eye reduction semms to be inavoidable. AF is overall good, not so nervous in low-contrast situations.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Strong Construction
Summary: This camera is the best compact digital I have used. The first thing that impressed me with this camera is itsfit and finish. It has a very will made metal body with asoft rubbery black finish that is not as susceptible tofingerprinting as some all metal finishes. Also, thezooming mechanism is very quiet and sounds solid and smooth.
Summary: This is a great little digital camera, i've had mine around 4 years (I think...??) and it hasn't put a foot wrong, if you are a budding photographer who wants the kind of super HD close up shot of some wild animal for national geographic magazine then no.... its not the camera for you, but the rest of us, this is perfect!
Pros: takes a good picture and due to the size of them you can take hundreds on just a 4GB card
Cons: its not the latest in technology and the zoom isnt that impressive
Excerpt: "...future models and versions from panasonic and other competitors. the pictures and fast to upload and take up little memory so it isnt intensive on the memory card unlike other cameras. the zoom is up to 3x which i find is plenty enough for holidays or days out, however if you require a more extensive zoom then i would opt for a different panasonic. the lumix brand from panasonic are a very stylish, yet high quality offering and i find much easier ...
Summary: Overall, this is a solid point and shoot camera. It has a very quick start up time, so you never have to miss that all important moment. Also the flash recharges really quickly when you are taking shots in low light. The intelligent auto function is pretty useful as it sets the settings according to the light conditions for you. A couple of down points: it does not take great photos in low light if you do not have a steady hand.
Pros: Quick start up time
Cons: Does not take great shots in low light, not enough manual adjustments.
Excerpt: "It seems this is a bit of a marmite camera- either you love it or you hate it. Well I LOVE IT. bought for me as a 40th birthday present by my wife. having worked in the camera industry for over 16 years, I knew of Panasonics marriage with Leica, and always found them to be perfect partners. And I was not dissapointed this time either. Once again they have not let the side down. My FX33 goes everywhere with me, and alongside my trusty OM1n and my ...
Pros: its small neat and its got a Leica lense
Cons: none that come to mind, other than it is a Compact Digital, not a DSLR

Summary: Bought this camera nearly a year ago now and absolutely delighted with it! The 'intelligent auto' is excellent, for an amateur photographer like myself it means that there is no playing around with all those fiddly settings anymore - just point and shoot! The photos are of excellent quality as well, the reason for purchasing this new camera was to replace my old one which could not take photos in the dark without the light blurring the whole image - in contrast this...
Excerpt: "Love this product and cannot go on about it enough - have used it almost everyday. The build quality is superb and it really feels that it has been put together well. Battery life is great and you will get the whole day out of it easily, I always buy a spare just in case. Memory size is ok, so you will need to buy another memory card to go with it but that is just normal with these cameras. It also features a very simple autofocus function so you ...
Summary: This is an amazing camera and for the price it is absolutely amazing. As a 15 year old, I take a lot of photos and they are always crisp and clear with the brilliant 'Intelligent Auto' mode, it automatically gets the optimum settings for the surroundings.
