Panasonic - Lumix - FX01 is a great little camera!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: For a small point and shoot camera, the Panasonic Lumix FX01 is a great camera. It has lenses by Leica and enough built in features to make anyone a better photographer. I bought it before our trip to the Carribean last year and it has never let me down. From family pictures to scenery and night timed exposures, it does it all. It has decent resolution, so when it comes time to print pictures, cropping the image does not hurt the image quality.
Excerpt: I bought my Lumix DMC-FX01 over a year ago, and I have not regretted it. The best thing about it is that it has a Leica DC Vario-Element wide angle lens. It's the equivalent of a 28 mm lens for a 35 mm camera. Normal digital cameras have the equivalent of a 38 or 40mm lens. This means that you can get more into the shot if you want. You can always zoom in a bit to get it back to 40mm. I saw that Leica sells the same camera under the Leica name, but that one costs $$$$$.
Excerpt: I would recommend this camera to everyone who are looking into buying a digital camera. It is user friendly and a very stylish camera. The battery life last pretty long, but always a good backup to get another battery. Overall, this camera is worth the price I paid for.
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix is a great camera for a teen or for someone not serious about digital photography. The photo quality is poor, but the camera is easy to use and relatively inexpensive. The price has gone down about $50 - $100 in the last year.The battery life is great. It comes with a rechargable battery & docking station. The battery lasts hours and can be recharged endlessly.
Summary: Great, great camera. Easy to use and produces consistently outstanding photos. A bit of a hassle to transfer files to the PC, but I found a way to do it rather easily. Not necessary to usse Panasonic software to do the transfer.
Summary: This camera has been a great ultra portable camera for over 3 years now. At first, it was my primary camera, replacing my Nikon CoolPix 3200. Last year (3/2010) I purchased a Lumix LX3, so the FX01 is now my secondary camera. The photos are surprisingly good for a 6 MegaPixel camera. The menus are easy, but the best part about this camera is the program wheel on the top that allows you to switch to different major functions without diving into the menus.
Summary: I purchased this camera around 2005 and I chose it randomly due to my company's discount program with the vendor. I was lucky b/c it turned out to be an incredible product. The quality of the photos (sharpness, clarity, color etc) is superb! Several family and friends who have used my camera have been impressed enough as to buy it. And a few of them are extremely picky people.
Summary: I'm sort of relieved that my Lumix FX-01 is at Panasonic after I refused to pay $111 to have them fix my lens, which bent to the side. How did it bend to the side? See that on/off switch on the top of the camera? The entire time I had the camera it would turn on by itself since it's very easy to hit by accident. Apparently this happened somehow in my pocket and the lens bent and stuck.
Don't ever lose the proprietary data cable for this camera

Summary: This camera takes great pictures and is very compact and portable. I've loved having it, but it has one glaring flaw which is the proprietary data cable. If you lose it, there is no universal cable you can use to transfer your pictures to your computer. You have to buy a very specific replacement cable. Not being able to get my pictures off my own camera has rendered it nearly pointless.
Summary: I've had this camera for about a year now. I've taken thousands of shots and it has preformed without missing a beat. What I still love most about this camera is it's small size, quick start up and amazingly long battery life. What I like least is the picture quality. It's fine for shots that don't require a great level of detail but use it for something close up or zoom in on a picture you've taken and you'll notice a great deal of "noise" in the image.
