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.
Panasonic - Lumix - FX01 is a great little camera!

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 $$$$$.
Summary: I also have a 4MP Canon Ixus 400, and a Canon Pro1. My Ixus is getting on a bit, takes forever to focus, has a screen the size of a postage stamp, takes horrid movies and is twice as fat as this Panasonic. The latest Ixus models address all these things, but don't have the wide-angle lens I love on the Pro1. The Panasonic FX01's photos aren't as good, if you look at them critically, as my much older Canon Ixus 400.
Summary: A few months ago, I realized that I had very few family outing pictures over the last couple of years. The reason was that nobody wanted to lug around my digital SLR, even though it was an outstanding camera. The answer was to buy a good camera that fit into my pocket. After a lot of research, I settled on the Lumix DMC FX01 -- primarily for the image stabilization, the lense quality, and being able to do 28mm. I couldn't be happier with it.
Summary: Wow! This is great! I have a panasonic SLR that does GREAT pics, but this is great for convenience and does a great job. You still get a better pic with the SLR's (of course) but this is nothing to laugh at. I picked one up for $270 new and LOVE IT. It is really tiny but has alot of features, and better zoom. I had a canon SD200 before and this is TONS better than the cannon with a better zoom and better battery life, better everything...and it has image stazilizer!
Great wide-angle lens and 16:9 format in a stylish, pocketable camera

Summary: I love this camera. I originally bought it for my wife but I've been using it more than she has. The wide-angle lens is great and I value it much more than a big zoom. It's great for close-up shots, group photos, and landscapes. The 16:9 format is great for landscapes, sunsets, etc. The display is clear and bright but a little slow.
Summary: Wow I love this little camera. Finally a 28mm (35mm equivelent) zoom lens in a really compact body. I've always kept 2 cameras - one little and portable, for quick shots and videos of the kids, and one large and bulky for high-quality, wide-angles, landscapes, architecture, and portraits. I think I'm finally ready to ditch everything in my camera drawer and consolidate on this little Panasonic.
Summary: After several weeks of online shopping for a digital camera I chose this Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01. I was looking for a camera to replace my long-time love - a Canon Sureshot, that I'd used for over 20 years! I've had a couple point-and-shoot cameras in between but nothing came close to the great pictures and simplicity of use as that little Canon.
