  • Conclusion: The large 3″ screen is great for reviewing images on and the touchscreen functions make this camera that much more ahead of the game than some others on the market right now. Mind you, as with all touch screen gadgets you end up with finger marks all over the screen!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 August 2008
  • Summary: As far as touchscreen cameras go, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 is the most intuitive we've seen yet. But it loses points for its less-than-spectacular image quality. Although far from terrible, we were disappointed with our underexposed pictures, particularly given the top-notch technical specs.

Camera Labs

  • Summary: Panasonic has a well-earned reputation for producing quality compacts, so it’s no surprise to find the new flagship model offering a wealth of compelling features. Headlining these on the new FX500 are of course its 5x optical zoom with unusually wide angle coverage and the touch sensitive screen.
  • Pros: 25mm wide angle, 5x range and stabilisation., Full manual control., Touch screen with sensible operation., HD video recording but no zoom.
  • Cons: Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO., Flagship model, but no RAW files., HD movies still no match for a camcorder., TZ5's 10x zoom tempting at same or lower price.

Panasonic Lumix FX500 review

Digital Arts
20 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The ten-megapixel Panasonic Lumix FX500 is a sophisticated camera. Its brushed metallic surface, slim, well-placed flash, and 25mm-to-125mm Leica 5x optical zoom lens are appealing, but its key feature is the three-inch touch-screen display.
  • Pros: Touch-screen controls; many manual controls; very responsive.
  • Cons: No Raw capture; touch-screen controls only for manual controls.

  • Summary: Omdöme: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 är en av testets större och tyngre kameror, men så är den teknikspäckad också. Metallskalet inger kvalitetskänsla och kameran känns robust. Tyvärr känns inte kontrollerna alltid helt logiska och vissa funktioner är omständliga att styra.
