Excellent Lumix fx35 with great picture quality and features
14 July 2009
Excerpt: I bought this camera in silver from Argos' Clearance Bargains Ebay shop for just under £130 delivered, and what a brilliant investment it was! The first thing that struck me was just how good the battery life was, easily outstripping the 2 2700mAh AA batteries my old Samsung S830 used!
Pros: 25mm Ultra wide angle lens, great battery life, fantastic picture quality, pocket sized, IA mode
Cons: Limited zoom (4x), little manual control, can't zoom during movies
FANTASTIC PRICED & QUALITY PICTURES IN PANASONIC DMC-FX35
10 July 2009
Excerpt: This is my 2nd Panasonic Lumix camera and I am delighted with the updated version. I ALWAYS get compliments for this camera. I know alot of keen Photographers who are astonished at the good quality of the depth of field in the photos.
Pros: 25mm lens is amazing, light and retro - looks professional
Cons: easy to forget to change light settings but auto can be selected . Battery only lasts about 3 days .
Summary: I bought this camera mainly because of its size - very easy to fit in a shirt pocket - and its wide-angle capability. The FX35 has a great, high quality wide angle lens and reasonable zoom. There is not much distortion at either end of the range, the lens really impresses.
Summary: I wanted a replacement for my Canon Ixus 2 which spontaneously died after several years of use. I tried several newer Canons just didn't like any of them. My daughter bought a Lumix TZ5 for the big zoom and loved it, but I wanted something much smaller.
