Panasonic DMC FX90
15 February 2012
Conclusion: Panasonic offers some excellent digital cameras and can normally be replied upon to produce crystal clear photos. As with previous reviews of cameras in the FX part of the range the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX90 just does not match up to those usual high standards.
Pros: Good Points: Touch screen responsiveness, features, Wi-Fi
Summary: In times gone by it was a simple rule of thumb that if you wanted to get a digital compact camera, you went for an optical company such as Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Olympus. As an electronics company, Panasonic has helped turn that tide and is now one of the biggest players in this sector.
Conclusion: The FX90 isn’t so different from its FX70 predecessor. Granted there’s the inclusion of Wi-Fi that, while nice to have, isn’t as useful as it at first seems, not least due to its huge negative impact on the camera’s battery life.
Pros: Touschreen-based focusing, up to date features, Wi-Fi technology, 3cm wide-angle macro mode, optical stabilisation, colourful images, small size
Cons: Poor battery life, touchscreen can slow access to some settings and won’t match up to smartphone standards, zoom toggle too small and poorly placed
