  • 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. So let’s move on and find out if the Panasonic DMC-FP8 is really worth spending your money on.

  • Excerpt: (1 items) The durable and compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 point-and-shoot camera offers an ultraquiet, recessed lens that focuses very quickly, but you'll need to make sure that its design works for you. The 12-megapixel Lumix DMC-FP8 has a boxy but stylish frame, made out of metal and seemingly impervious to anyone with a mild case of fumble-itis.
  • Pros: Durable frame, Very fast and quiet wide-angle zoom lens, Superior battery life
  • Cons: No lens cover, Lens placement is awkward for two-handed shots

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 – Unattractive Looks But A Genius Inside

etechreviews.net
6 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The exterior of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 might make you think that this is just another camera that Panasonic has made to keep their pockets jingling. But a closer look at the features will reveal that the camera has been worked up in three main departments and all of this makes the camera a lot better. To start with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 boots really quickly. We have never seen a camera which starts up in less than a second.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 Review

  • Conclusion: As a still camera, the FP8 delivers respectable, if not exactly best-in-class, image quality. But perhaps that’s missing the point. Photographers will value the FP8 for the same reason western gunslingers used to value the Colt Peacemaker: It’s quick on the draw. With the FP8 at our side, we felt ready to capture anything in an instant. Think: The difference between a picture of milk shooting out your friend’s nose, or your friend hovering over a pool of milk.
  • 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

Digital Camera Review
7 October 2009
  • Summary: When I reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 back in March 2008 I was impressed enough with that camera's overall performance to buy one for my sister. Subsequent Panasonic offerings that have crossed my path for review purposes didn't produce the same warm and fuzzy feelings as the FX35, but the FP8 has reversed that trend.
  • Pros: Very good AF performance, Very good shutter lag, Good image quality, largely defect free, Good flash recycle times
  • Cons: ISO noise performance below average at 400 and up, Minimal flash range at low ISO

19 February 2010
  • 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. It recalls similarly slender Sony Cyber-shots to an extent, yet even more closely apes older Konica Minolta Dimage X series digital snapshots, not just in looks but also because it features folded optics - here Leica branded - that ensure that at no point does its internally stacked...
