Digital Camera Review
16 March 2009
Summary: If the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37 proves anything, it’s that success can be a hard act to follow. A light update to the FX35 – a DigitalCameraReview.com Editor’s Choice winner from 2008 – the FX37 keeps all of the bells and whistles that made the FX35 such a fun, flexible camera: it’s slim, chic, easy...
Pros: Chic, functional ultracompact design, Wide-angle lens still the widest out there (on an ultracompact), iA mode is point-and-shoot simplicity at its best, Rich, vibrant color reproduction
Cons: Pixel peepers will find noise intolerable, even at low ISOs, Stronger competition hurts the FX37's by-the-numbers performance, Premium price tag, AF inconsistencies remain
Summary: Because of its slow speeds, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37 isn't ideal for action photographers. At $349, it's also more expensive than many point-and-shoots, but for that price you don't have to choose between compact design and a versatile lens.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix FX37 is a very capable and very small digital camera with 10 megapixels, an ultra-wide 5X zoom lens and 2.5 inch LCD. I would say the FX37 has an advantage over the competition with its 5X zoom lens that starts at 25 mm.
Pros: Very good image quality; automatic color fringing and redeye removal, 25 mm wide-angle stabilized 5X zoom lens, Ultra-compact design; very usable 2.5 inch LCD, Excellent battery life, Speedy performance, very good continuous shooting, Many scene modes and Intelligent Auto; custom white balance ad...
Cons: Some detail loss from noise reduction, No red-eye removal or image brighten features in playback mode, Flimsy battery/card compartment door, No manual controls or movie zoom
Summary: The DMC-FX37 is the latest product refresh in the popular and revered Lumix digital camera line from Panasonic. The 10.1-megapixel device offers the same high-performance point-and-shoot capabilities of its siblings, and maintains the stylish and sleek exterior that makes the Lumix DMC-FX37 a very...
Conclusion: It is rare that I end up disappointed with a digital camera from Panasonic. That is the case with the DMC FX37. Although I like the features the camera offers I just couldn't get a decent set of photos with my test shots.
Summary: Une très bonne qualité de prise de vue, un objectif 25-125mm, un mode vidéo performant, tels sont les atouts de ce DMC-FX37. Un petit regret par rapport à l’absence de mode manuel mais faisons confiance à Panasonic qui remet à jour ses modèles tous les 6 mois !
Pros: La gestion du bruit, Vidéo HD 1280 x 720 pixels, Les modes automatiques (IA) de bonne qualité
Cons: Écran LCD trop brillant, Pas de modes manuels, Le temps de mise sous tension un peu lent
