Panasonic Lumix DHC-FH27

PC Magazine
18 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The touch-screen-based Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 is a good-looking compact camera that packs big zoom, but soft photos and poor user experience spoil the deal.
  • Pros: Compact and attractive with 8x zoom. Decent low-light performance. Speedy. One-touch zoom button.
  • Cons: Soft images. Subpar touch-screen experience. Only records video at 24 frames per second. No HDMI port.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37

CNET
4 June 2011
  • Summary: There's an air of compromise about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37 -- it's not quite a superzoom, but it's larger and more expensive than many compacts. That said, it offers a useful balance of performance and versatility and looks pretty smart while it's at it.
  • Cons: flawed touchscreen interface; compromised video function.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 Review

Digital Camera Review
21 March 2011
  • 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

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FH27 review: A digital camera that has a good lens but a fiddly touchscreen

Good Gear Guide.au
25 July 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.
  • Pros: Good quality lens, Fast zoom
  • Cons: Poor touchscreen, Mediocre image quality

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37 review

Pocket Lint
2 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Looking for a reliable pocket camera for the holidays? Along with the Lumix DMC-FS35, the Panasonic FS37 we have here upgrades last year’s FS33 , upping the stills resolution from 14 to 16 megapixels, spread across a 1/2.33-inch CCD sensor. Though the FS35 fields the same headline resolution, the FS37 boasts a larger 3-inch touchscreen taking up the entire backplate, against its sibling’s standard 2.7-inch LCD.
  • 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
