Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550

CNET
27 November 2009
  • Summary: We have to ask what the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550's hybrid touchscreen interface actually achieves. It doesn't replace the usual set of buttons because you get these too. The 25-125mm zoom doesn't perform brilliantly, either.
  • Pros: Offers a surprising amount of manual control; super-wideangle zoom; good focus tracking.
  • Cons: Poor lens quality at full zoom; occasionally hit-and-miss touchscreen interface.

Digital Camera Review
9 September 2009
  • Summary: When Panasonic announced the FX500 back in March 2008 as the “flagship” of the FX line, it became their first camera to feature a touch screen interface. Now the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580 has been put in play as the successor to the 500, and folks who are familiar with the earlier camera will have a...
  • Pros: Manual controls, Good build quality, Nice image quality

  • 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.

29 April 2009
  • Summary: Quite simply the Panasonic FX550 (or FX580 for those across the pond) is an excellent little compact. Its simple design makes for easy functioning, further championed by the 3in touch screen, AF tracking and 25mm wide angle lens.
  • Pros: 25mm wide angle, touch screen interface, subject tracking, fully manual controls available, intelligent Auto (iA)
  • Cons: AF can lag at times, touch screen can become fiddly, images a bit noisy

  • 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.

  • 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
