Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48

PC Magazine
10 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The pricey Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48 offers a lot of features for a point-and-shoot camera, but its image quality falls short, particularly under bright light.
  • Pros: Compact design. Wide-angle lens with 5X zoom. Captures HD video. Easy-to-use interface.
  • Cons: Expensive. Some pictures can look soft. LCD shows considerable amounts of motion blur. Noticeable shutter lag.

Digital Camera Review
10 July 2009
  • Summary: When I reviewed the Panasonic DMC-FX35 back in March 2008 I was sufficiently impressed with its overall performance to go out and buy one for my sister. Since then Panasonic has introduced a minimally changed follow-on model, the DMC-FX37, and now its successor, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48 .
  • Pros: Compact and light, Good build quality, Good lens performance
  • Cons: Softer images, No Vivid setting in iA

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX40

CNET
22 April 2009
  • Summary: Apart from its rather remarkable 5x super-wideangle lens, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX40 doesn't have any other obvious selling points that justify its price. But, when you pick it up and use it, you realise you're also getting outstanding design and build quality.
  • Pros: Good styling and design; straightforward controls; 5x zoom range.
  • Cons: Pricey; sluggish zooming and autofocus; detail lacks bite.

Digicam Review

  • Summary: : Panasonic have taken an already winning formula, and tweaked it, with more megapixels, all packed into the same ultra compact and stylish body. Even with more pixels, image quality is still excellent, and noise is average, with very good detail.
  • Pros: Very easy to use, Very compact and stylish metal body, Very good build quality and switches, Very good image quality - excellent colour, Ultra wide angle 25mm 5x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, Intelligent ISO / Exposure / Intelligent AUTO mode will automatically set ISO, Shut...
  • Cons: Noise visible at ISO100, Slightly weak flash, some red-eye, Tripod mount positioned to the far left.

  • Summary: If you want a compact camera that will allow you to merely point and shoot and, under most conditions, achieve results that won't need adjustment afterwards, then the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX40 fits the bill as a neat and not unstylish solution to slip into your top pocket when heading out for the...

  • Conclusion: It's a fantastic looking camera, built for life, but the image quality doesn't quite match this. It's a decent camera for someone new to photography who isn't picky about the finer details.

  • Excerpt: Le Panasonic Lumix FX40 est un compact qui aura peut-être du mal à s’imposer… Effet, si on le compare aux autres sorties de Panasonic , il lui manquera une caractéristique forte peut-être pour sortir du lot.
  • Pros: Grand angle et stabilisation, Fonctionnalités. - Mode photo
  • Cons: L'écran de 2,5 pouces - La concurrence des autres compacts Panasonic ?
