  • Summary: This Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 review finds a camera with many intermediate features for a sub-$400 model, including a 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD. I liked quite a few aspects of the FX700, but it did have some confusing menu options, which may frustrate beginners.
  • Pros: Lots of shooting options available, Image quality is very good; extremely sharp photos, Very little shutter lag, regardless of shooting conditions, Full manual mode is available, Camera is well built and feels sturdy
  • Cons: Menu structure can be a little confusing, Touch screen takes a little practice to use correctly, Bigger LCD would be better with touch screen LCD, Slightly larger zoom lens would be handy

  • Summary: The camera uses a 3.0-inch LCD touchscreen, allowing the user to control all camera functions via the graphical touch system (with exception of the zoom lens). The FX700 also has Face Recognition / Detection, their POWER O.I.S.
  • Pros: Captures sharp photos with pleasing colors., 5x optical zoom lens available while recording video, 24mm wide angle extreme is one of the widest available in a camera of this size, High Quality AVCHD movie capture, Fast and accurate Touchscreen GUI, Great performance, Excellent Low Light performan...
  • Cons: Some may think $400 is a hefty price tag, Produced small % of exposures that were a bit strong under harsh sunlight, Higher luminance noise that we'd like to see (which has been typical of these 14-megapixel sensors)

  • Conclusion: A nice camera that offers the best combination of auto functions and manual control we’ve seen so far. It has its foibles and the price is high, but it’s a good all-rounder

  • Conclusion: Whilst in general terms the above suggests the FX700 is just what’s required for anyone looking for a point and shoot equipped with most of the current must haves, it does come at a price.
  • Pros: Reasonably easy to use, Full HD video clips with stereo sound, compact, lightweight and unobtrusive, 5x optical zoom can be used when recording video, dedicated video record button makes for more user friendly operation
  • Cons: Costly, if going by the manufacturer’s recommended price, noticeable loss of quality at highest ISO equivalents

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 adds two significant improvements, Full HD video and manual control over exposure, to the much cheaper FX70 model, but unfortunately does so at the expense of still image quality, with slow ISO speeds suffering from obvious noise and smearing of fine detail.
