Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35
19 March 2009
Conclusion: With the latest model in its FX line, Panasonic has added some nice features but also took out its excellent joystick controller. This move lands the camera right back in the middle of the pack of midrange pocket shooters.
Pros: 25mm wide-angle lens. Intelligent LCD. Intelligent Auto mode has been improved. Very little noise at high ISO settings.
Cons: No joystick controller like on other F-series cameras. Small 2.5-inch LCD. No optical viewfinder. Flash underexposes images.
Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 digital compact camera The Lumix compact camera line of Panasonic has been setting the Thames on fire for a while now. The models appeared sequentially at a high speed and proved quite successful. However, it is now a question of keeping focussed and making necessary improvements to existing items rather than continuous upgrading of the specifications. Naturally, it is not only Panasonic guilty of this, it is the entire industry.
Conclusion: Overall the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 is a great addition to the Lumix series and a worthy upgrade from the FX33, with the added features such as the superb wide angle lens and the cameras ease of use and excellent choice of feature and settings to play around with to get that perfect 10m Megapixel shot every time or to capture those quick little video moments with sound.

Excerpt: At first glance, you may take a look at the Panasonic Lumix
DMC-FX35 ($350) and say, "oh good, another ultra-compact camera". And, in many respects,
that's just what it is. What sets the FX35 apart from almost everything else
is its super wide-angle lens, which starts at just 25 mm. Panasonic wisely
made this a 4X zoom, giving you a top end of 100 mm (instead of 75 mm, had
it been 3X).
Pros: Good photo quality, less noise reduction than previous models (though see issues below), Super wide 25 - 100 mm lens, Optical image stabilization, Ultra-compact metal body; comes in three colors, Sharp 2.5" LCD with excellent outdoor and low light visibility, Tons of scene modes; Intelligent Auto Mode can pick one for you, Well-implemented face detection feature, Auto redeye reduction, High resolution 720p movie mode, Above average battery life, Optional underwater ca...
Cons: Images on the noisy side, especially in shadow areas; still some NR artifacting, Slightly soft photos; corner blurriness can be an issue, Lens is lacking in the telephoto department, More manual controls would be nice, No optical viewfinder, Small buttons on back of camera, Flimsy door over memory card/battery compartment
Summary: Panasonic crams a lot into the Lumix DMC-FX35, including an expansive zoom range that’s perfect for landscape photos and an innovative Intelligent Scene Selector. However, its overall picture quality was inconsistent, keeping the FX35 from being a top pick.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 is a highly desirable slim, light and well-built compact camera with unusually wide angle coverage. Sporting 25-100mm equivalent coverage, it zooms much wider than the typical 36 or 38mm of most compacts and even squeezes-in slightly more than Panasonic’s own 28mm models, including the earlier FX33. It’s a very welcome facility.
Pros: 25mm wide angle and optical stabilisation., Slim body and shorter than many rivals too., Very good Intelligent Auto mode., HD video recording but no zoom.
Cons: Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO., Little or no manual control., HD movies still no match for a camcorder., 10x zoom and 3in screen of TZ5 are tempting.
Summary: : The Panasonic Lumix FX35 may seem like "just another compact camera" but what impresses me most about this camera is how difficult it was to think of problems with this camera. As you can see below - this camera does almost everything excellently. Image quality is excellent, and despite more noise than average, detail is very good.
Pros: Very easy to use, Very compact and stylish metal body, Very good build quality and switches, Very good image quality - excellent colour, Ultra wide angle 25mm 4x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, Intelligent ISO / Exposure / Intelligent AUTO mode will automatically set ISO, Shutter speed, Subject type etc, Excellent 2.5" screen - works well in bright sunlight, Impressive detail at ISO100, Good macro mode, Quick performance - 2.5fps continuous shootin...
Cons: Noise visible at ISO100, Having to give the camera back to Panasonic
