Simple touchscreen UI; tap to shoot option. The Bad Still compact-like in the darkest scenes. Not as fast as it could be for action. Low-resolution LCD. No viewfinder. Price may be in hard to defend middle ground.

Summary: Just entering the market, Panasonic’s DMC-FX75 joins a Lumix compact digital lineup featuring no fewer than fourteen other models that could easily be mistaken for one another on looks alone. In the case of the FX75, it’s the 14.1 megapixel, 5x optical zoom compact with the 3.0-inch LCD monitor, full touch screen operation and the Sonic Speed autofocus (AF) system.
Pros: Good image quality, Quick shutter and AF speeds, Fast lens at wide angle
Cons: LCD tricky in bright sunlight, Slow aperture at telephoto, Noise at ISO 400

Summary: Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-FX75 has an intuitive touchscreen and can take clear images for the most part. However, its images do look very muddy when viewed at their full size and they also suffer from noise if you use a high ISO. We like the wide 24mm lens, but it does suffer from a lot of distortion. Perhaps the best aspects of this camera are its macro mode and very easy touchscreen focusing function.
Pros: Good macro performance, excellent focusing, intuitive touchscreen
Cons: Images look too muddy when viewed at their full size, noticeable lens distortion, doesn't handle highlights well
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC FX70 does not quite match up to the picture quality I am used to seeing from Panasonic digital cameras. It does have a lot of other plus points, but if you are looking for true clarity in your photos there are better pocket cameras around.
Conclusion: So should this be the camera you pocket for that short city break? If you're looking for a competent, well-featured performer at the right price, and are happy to occasionally squint at a touchscreen in the sun - then the FX70 could be the one. In terms of picture quality, though there's a tendency to lose detail in the highlights, results are as sharp as we've previously experienced from the Lumix snapper range.
Pros: Sharp colourful images, decent feature set, well built and pocket friendly
Cons: Those who prefer dedicated function buttons may find the virtual interface, though responsive, slows operation slightly as you inevitably have to drill into it to find what you want
Conclusion: Die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 ist eine schicke, sinnvoll ausgestattete und schnelle Style-Kamera, die wegen der Touchscreen-Bedienung und den kleinen Symbolen am besten von zierlichen Fingern gesteuert wird. Bei den Fotos fällt jedoch übermäßiges Rauschen auf.
Conclusion: La Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 è una buona fotocamera compatta dotata di alcune accortezze che la pongono un gradino sopra le altre. Innanzitutto il display touchscreen e di buone dimensioni, che facilita la vita al fotografo, poi lo stabilizzatore ottico, non sempre presente sulle digitali, e tante funzionalità che permettono di ottenere lo scatto perfetto in ogni circostanza. Uno zoom ottico maggiore non avrebbe guastato.
Pros: Connettore miniHDMI; Risoluzione sensore; Modalità Intelligent Auto
Cons: Memoria interna; Zoom superiore alla media ma non eccellente
