Pros: Stylish good looks., Responsive zoom with wide angle., Variable brightness LCD., Lots of Scene modes.
Cons: Switch for play instead of button., Flimsy battery cover., Face detection poor in low light., Some gimmicky scene modes.
Summary: Panasonic makes some great 10-megapixel compacts, but seems to be struggling to get the best out of its 12-megapixel sensors -- the Lumix DMC-FS25, Lumix DMC-FX40 and Lumix DMC-FT1 all turn out slightly mushy detail.
Pros: Good design and controls; big screen and clear interface; quick-access button for the 'intelligent auto' mode.
Cons: Fine detail lacks bite; some scene modes work at lower resolution; focus tracking is slow to lock on.
