Panasonic Lumix FS37 Review
What Digital Camera
12 September 2011
Excerpt: One of the latest compacts equipped with touch-shooting, the FS37 also packs in an 8x optical zoom and high resolution sensor. The What Digital Camera review of the Panasonic Lumix FS37 finds out whether its the ideal photographic companion for the casual user
Pros: Handy focal range, build quality, generally good image quality
Cons: LCD has narrow viewing angle, poorly designed menu system, no HDMI port
Conclusion: HD video recording is supported, but only at 720p resolution and at 24fps which is a little disappointing. Many cameras at this price point now offer full 1080p resolution video capture at 30fps, and this higher quality standard seems to be fast becoming the standard.
Excerpt: How do you tell if one 16-megapixel point-and-shoot camera is better than the other? We’re here to help you find out before you drop 200 bucks. The Lumix DMC-FH27 is a very compact digicam with a potent 8x zoom, potentially making it a good choice for vacationers. There’s nothing as convenient as having a pocket camera with a range of 28-224mm for grabbing nice wide-angle landscapes and group shots along with the ability to zoom in on subjects far away.
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 (also known as the FS37) is Panasonic's top-of-the-line "Stylish Casual" compact point-and-shoot digital camera. Panasonic's small cameras have not been known for their sense of style, though Panasonic is trying to change that with some of its recent releases (the "FP" series and the "S" series).
Pros: Lightweight but good build quality, Quick, reliable performance, Good image quality, even in low light
Cons: Zoom control is a little fiddly, No zoom or auto focus in movie mode, Touchscreen not terribly responsive in playback mode
Conclusion: With broader than average focal range allowing for candid portraits and wide angle vistas to be captured mere seconds apart, the FS37 suggests itself as a perfect holiday camera, turning on its charm to the fullest when conditions are ideal, and being less impressive when light levels are falling.
Pros: Simple to operate as long as you can get to grips with the touchscreen, colourful sharp and evenly exposed results under most conditions, sturdy feel build, pocket sized dimensions
Cons: Not Full HD video, no HDMI output, optical zoom frozen when recording “movies”, mono sound, noise intrudes into shots taken above ISO 400
Excerpt: We reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37's predecessor in the good value £199 DMC-FS33 last year. Whereas that point and shoot pocket model similarly fielded an 8x optical zoom, so nudging into travel zoom territory without quite being up to TZ20 standards, the new FS37 retains the zoom but boosts the pixel count.
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FH27 review: A digital camera that has a good lens but a fiddly touchscreen
Good Gear Guide.au
20 May 2011
Summary: Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-FH27 is a compact digital camera that has a good 8x Leica-branded zoom lens. However, the 3in touchscreen can be a pain to operate and doesn't offer many advantages over traditional buttons. The camera's 16-megapixel sensor is also average at best, with poor quality movies and images that are only at their best when there's good lighting.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37 im Test: günstige, aber gute Touchscreen-Digicam
19 July 2011
Summary: Schick, schlank, günstig und gute Bilder – das verspricht die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37. Ohne großen Schnickschnack und ohne viele Extrawürste. Eine intelligente Automatik soll dafür sorgen, dass ein Druck auf den Auslöser für zuverlässig gelungene Fotos ausreicht. Flexibilität beim Fotografieren gewährt ein achtfacher optischer Zoom, um die Bedienung kümmert sich ein 3 Zoll großer Touchscreen.
