Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700
15 February 2011
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 has a hefty price comes but also a hefty features set including great-looking still images, blazing fast speed, a touch-screen LCD, a bright lens, and powerful HD video recording.
Pros: Great still images. Powerful video recording options. Bright lens (f/2.2). Touch-screen interface. Automatic and manual shooting. Negligible shutter lag. Fast burst mode.
Cons: Expensive. Dull LCD. Marginal high-ISO performance. Proprietary USB port.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix FX700 is a 14 megapixel compact with a 5x stabilised zoom and a 3 inch touch-screen display. At its heart is a newly engineered 14 Megapixel CMOS sensor which combined with the latest Venus FHD processor provides a range of fast burst modes and full HD video recording at 1080i as well as 720p resolutions.
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. Although the manufacturer’s suggested price is a rather high £359 in our opinion, we discovered the FX700 could be picked up online for a more realistic £250+ at the time of writing.
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
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 im Test: lichtstarker Kamera-Zwerg mit riesiger Ausstattung
30 September 2010
Summary: Die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 bietet eine beeindruckende Ausstattung im kompakten Format. Der Hersteller quetscht 24-Millimeter-Weitwinkelobjektiv, Full-HD-Videofunktion und 60-fps-Serienbildmodus in ein gerade einmal 2,3 Zentimeter dickes Gehäuse. Wie sich das hosentaschentaugliche 14-Megapixel-Wunder in der Praxis schlägt, zeigt der Testbericht.
