Panasonic Lumix FX37

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. If you like snapping landscapes, big group shots or â€œself portraitsâ€� with mates in the pub, then donâ€™t underestimate the potential of this lens â€“ its 3 mm difference makes it about 10% more wide-angle than a conventional 28 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 adjustment, 720p HD movie mode
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: CONCLUSION The Lumix FX35 was one of our favorite cameras of 2008, but revisiting the essentially unchanged Lumix FX37 nearly a year later, it's much harder to make the case that this is one of the best, most versatile cameras out there. That's not because the FX37 has taken a turn for the worse compared to the FX35; rather, it's a reflection of the fact that more manufacturers have rolled out solid ultracompacts with wide-angle lenses in the last year.
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. It may not be as hip as the similarly priced Nikon Coolpix S60 , which sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen, but it won't disappoint.
Pros: Vibrant colors, Wide angle, 5X zoom lens, Good low-light performance, Compact, lightweight design, Long battery life
Cons: Slow shot-to-shot speed, Poor dynamic range, Can't use zoom during video recording, Small LCD
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 enticing compact camera choice.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37 is a small and stylish point-and-shoot compact which doesn't truly bring that much of note – aside from the impressive 25mm-125mm 5x zoom lens – to the party. The suspicion is that the FX37 is plugging a gap in the range rather than striving for individual excellence.
Summary: Et godt sted at starte købet af nyt kamera er at spørge sig selv, hvad man savnede ved det gamle kamera. Er svaret, at det ville være fint at kunne få mere med på billederne, er det mere vidvinkel, man skal have, og her er FX37 testens stjerne: 25 mm vidvinkel svarer til en billedvinkel på 85 grader. Uanset hvad man bruger kameraet til, er kraftig vidvinkel en fordel. Panasonic-kameraet har en smart automatik.
