Summary: I have owned two Panasonic Lumix cameras. The first one developed black spots on the screen. After returning for repair for the same problem three times, and more than 5 total hours on hold and talking with worthless customer service representatives, they finally replaced it.
Summary: A lovely little camera that I bought for my wife at a good price that takes sharp, bright pictures. It is extremely easy to use and my wife is constantly delighted with it. On the other hand, in light of the high current price and the advances in later cameras (especially the increased telephoto...
Summary: This camera takes great pictures and is small enough to slip in my ski pants to capture those special POW moments - even in the north east. Holds a long charge but wish it could charge while hooked up to my computer versus havinging to bring the charger along. A small inconvenience for a good value.
Summary: Great camera! I bought this one after my FX-9 after 5years of hard use had the backlight go out. Picture quality is upgraded from the FX-9 plus has a higher megapixel. Zoom feature and stabilization are excellent. The iA feature works pretty well. I have yet to have any issues with it.
Summary: I recently had to replace my previous Lumix which fell in the swimming pool. I loved that camera so I was keen to get the latest Lumix FX. I am generally happy with this camera but with a couple of reservations. Its design is super - its so tiny and the quality of the hardware is great.
Summary: This camera, which can be bought around $200 plus or minus $25, is pretty good. I have an $800 Leica D-LUX4 and this camera is sort of a little brother to the D-LUX, and even the controls are virtually the same. It's much slimmer and smaller than the D-LUX.
Summary: I bought this new camera for my wife shortly before a reunion visit with high school girl friends. She loves it and when the other girls saw the photo results at least one remarked, "I need to get a new digital camera". When the wife is happy, everyone is happy.
Summary: I like the quality of the photos and the video, I am dissapointed with the video mode although the quality of the image is impressive. There is no ability to zoom when taking a video. You can zoom before starting the video but it has to stay put in the range you started from.
Summary: I really like the FX48. It's very portable, exposure control and color are great, and the 25mm wide angle lens is amazing. The images are very pleasant to look at. But if you're into really analyzing image detail, images are quite soft, especially in the corners or along the right edge depending on...
