  • Summary: My Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 review finds one of the better fixed lens cameras available on the market. The FZ40 offrs a 24X optical zoom lens and a great mixture of manual and automatic control features.
  • Pros: Great mix of automatic and manual control features
  • Cons: You'll want a tripod with this camera, to protect against camera shake, Camera is very large, Occasional focus problems at full zoom extension, Beginner photographers may be overwhelmed with all of the manual control features

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 Review

Digitaltrends
7 March 2010
  • 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...

Panasonic Lumix FP8 ( Red)

CNET
18 November 2009
  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-FP8 lives up to Panasonic's speedy performance claims; its photo quality isn't bad, either.
  • Pros: Small and lightweight; fast start-up and low shutter lag in good lighting; simple operation; great battery life.
  • Cons: Overcautious auto ISO; internal lens leads to fingers in shots; photos look slightly overprocessed.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 digital camera

Pocket Lint
6 January 2010
  • 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

  • Summary: The overall impression given by the Panasonic FP8 is that here we have another well built, intuitive to use, reliable performer that further bolsters the already praised Lumix range of compacts. However, that said, there's little about the FP8 that feels new, original or even exciting.

Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
14 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Die Lumix DMC-FP8 ist eindeutig die beste Ultrakompakte, die Panasonic je im Angebot hatte – und auch im Konkurrenzumfeld liegt die flache Kamera weit vorne. Zwar ist das Display eher mittelmäßig, doch die Kombination aus überzeugender Bildqualität, schneller Auslöseverzögerung, langer Akkulaufzeit...
  • Pros: Effektiver Stabilisator, 28mm-Weitwinkel, Sehr gute Bildqualität, Starker Akku
  • Cons: Kleiner LCD-Betrachtungswinkel, Fehlender Objektivschutz

24 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Das dkamera Fazit: Die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 fällt in die Kategorie der ultrakompakten Kameras und zeigt dementsprechende Leistungen. Sie besitzt eine relativ kurze Einschaltzeit, fokussiert schnell und bietet einen gut arbeitenden Automatikmodus, so dass sie kaum ein Motiv verpasst.
  • Pros: 28mm Weitwinkel, Markenoptik aus dem Hause Leica, Gut funktionierender optischer Bildstabilisator, Trotz kleiner Bauweise 4,6fach optisches Zoom, Optisches Zoomen während dem Filmen möglich, Bei Fotos schneller und treffsicherer Autofokus, Automatische Belichtungsreihenfunktion (+/-1/3, +/-2/3, +...
  • Cons: Kein mechanischer Objektivschutz vorhanden (nur Glasscheibe, Kratzer wären hier fatal), Fehlendes Moduswahlrad, Der Serienbildmodus ist auf maximal 3 Fotos pro Serie beschränkt, Objektiv kann leicht durch Finger verdeckt werden, Stativgewinde aus Plastik, Überdurchschnittliches Rauschen bei schle...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8: schnelle Superkompaktkamera

CNET
20 November 2009
  • Summary: Auch bei Digicams macht die zunehmende Miniaturisierung von Hightech nicht halt: So bringt Panasonic in dem gerade einmal zwei Zentimeter dicken Gehäuse der Lumix DMC-FP8 einen 4,6-fachen optischen Zoom mit 28-Millimeter-Weitwinkel und optischem Bildstabilisator sowie 12-Megapixel-Bildsensor und...
  • Pros: klein und leicht, kurze Auslöseverzögerung bei guten Lichtverhältnissen, einfache Bedienung, ausgezeichnete Akkulaufzeit
  • Cons: übervorsichtige ISO-Automatik, ungünstige Linsenposition, Fotos wirken nachgeschärft
