2 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic FX550 - a swanky-looking touch screen compact camera with 25mm wide angle lens; it looks the part and has the specs to match. So how does the FX550 fare when put to the test? The...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580 Review

Digital Camera Review
9 September 2009
  • Summary: When the FX500 was reviewed on this site back in May 2008, one complaint was that while a mode button input was required to display shooting modes, once displayed they could only be selected via touch. The FX580 has put that gripe to rest - once displayed, modes can be selected via touch or cursor, and the same holds true for the quick menu.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Good image quality at low ISO, Good shutter lag, Manual controls, Good flash recycle times
  • Cons: Cost, ISO noise performance average at best past 100, Short flash range

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580 ($399) may look like Just Another Ultra-Compact Camera, but it has two features that most cameras in its class do not. The first is a 3-inch touchscreen LCD display. While many camera manufacturers have touchscreen cameras, the FX580 is somewhat unique in that it doesn't force you to use the touchscreen for everything -- there are "regular" controls too. This, in my opinion, is a big plus.

  • Excerpt: Looking for a small yet robustly built compact to pack with your holiday gear this summer? Panasonic's Lumix range of digital compacts has of late delivered one of the most consistent and reliable performances in the industry. So we expect nothing less from its latest incarnation in the shape of the 12.1 effective megapixel DMC-FX550 - again bolting a user-friendly ethos onto a class-leading feature set.

  • Conclusion: With pricing comparable to immediate rivals, if you're looking for a pocket snapper that presents a small(ish) form factor, good sturdy build, choice of button or touch screen control and consistent JPEG performance, look no further than the FX550.

  • Excerpt: Le Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550 est un compact a l’allure sobre et la coque élégante dont les deux principaux intérêts (à l’heure où Panasonic a tendance à recycler beaucoup de ses caractéristiques dans la plupart de ses compacts) sont son écran tactile de 3" (l’écran tactile permet ici de gérer un grand nombre de paramètres qui vont des menus aux paramètres de vue) et son zoom qui débute à 25 mm (zoom 25-125mm stabilisé).
  • Pros: Position grand angle, Fonctionnalités, Mode vidéo
  • Cons: Bruit en haute sensibilité

Digitalkamera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550

COMPUTER BILD
18 December 2009
  • Summary: Durch die immer größeren Kontrollbildschirme werden die Bedientasten von Digitalkameras immer kleiner. Will man etwas kompliziertere Einstellungen vornehmen, wird die Kamerabedienung so zur Fingerübung. Die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550 hat neben den Tasten noch einen berührungsempfindlichen Bildschirm. Erleichtert das die Bedienung?
  • Pros: praktische Kombination aus Tasten- und Touchscreen-Bedienung, Fokus-Verfolgung
  • Cons: unübersichtliche Einstell-Einblendungen

  • Conclusion: Panasonic hat bei der Entwicklung der FX550 an den richtigen Stellschrauben gedreht - gegenüber ihrer Vorgängerin hat die Bildqualität deutlich zugelegt. Dazu gibt es einen tollen Brennweitenbereich und eine eingängige Bedienung. Die Geschwindigkeit ist aber nur Mittelmaß.
  • Pros: Gelungenes Bedienkonzept, Gute Bildqualität, Kräftiger Akku, Weitwinkel
  • Cons: Kein optisches Zoom bei Videoaufnahme, Nicht die Schnellste
