  • Excerpt: If Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FP8 looks a lot like the rugged TS1 the company launched earlier this year, it’s because the two cameras have a lot in common. Although the FP8 won’t survive a dip in the drink or a drop to the floor like its brawnier brother, both use a unique folding-optic design that...
  • Pros: Quick start-up, autofocus and low shutter lag, Excellent image quality in proper lighting, attractive design
  • Cons: No lens cover, Initially unintuitive rear controls, Noise at high ISOs hampers indoor shooting

  • Summary: When Panasonic announced the Lumix DMC-FP8 (henceforth the FP8) in late July, a casual glance might impress onlookers that here was another rectangular, standard zoom compact digital with the 12 megapixel sensor resolution that seems to be almost obligatory in this class.
  • Pros: Fast AF, Very good shutter lag, Nice image quality
  • Cons: Noise at ISO 400, Limited flash range, LCD blackout in burst mode

  • Excerpt: Pocket cameras are a boon to photographers. Think about it! For instance, imagine carrying a super zoom or even an SLR whenever you step out. Though they are considered to be a requirement for every shutter bug they don’t quite offer the same kind of portability that compact cameras offer.

  • Excerpt: The FP8’s aluminium body is slim, stylish and reassuringly tough. We love the red finish, but it’s also available in black or silver. It’s remarkably well equipped for such aa cheap camera.

  • Summary: Though the lens placement and button layout take some getting used to, the boxy and durable Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 offers a quiet and quick wide-angle lens.
  • Pros: Superior battery life, very fast and quiet wide-angle zoom lens, durable frame
  • Cons: No lens cover, lens placement is awkward for two-handed shots

  • Excerpt: In something of a design departure, Panasonic has introduced the flat fronted, square-edged 12.1 megapixel FP8 to the Lumix range of beginner-friendly, pocket-sized point-and-shoot compacts.

  • Conclusion: Glowing buttons and aluminium build aside the FP8 offers a fairly standard feature set at a premium price. But despite there being little here that’s truly new, Panasonic has introduced another reliable performer to the Lumix range.

  • Conclusion: Despite our reservations about some aspects of the FP8's functionality, outdoors with plenty of light around the camera is able to pick up a fair amount of detail and deliver crisp, sharply focused results.
  • Pros: User-friendly set up and operational menus, fast and responsive, for the most part a reliable snapper. Robust mainly metal construction and 4.6x optical zoom range goes some way toward justifying price tag
  • Cons: Optical zoom disabled when shooting video, not Full HD movies, positioning of lens means that finger tips can creep into shot, noise visible at ISO 400 and above
