Summary: Pros: Auto scene mode. A good variety of scene selections. Wide angle lens. Takes very decent pictures indoors and out. 1080i HD video. (NOT true HD 1080p though, but better than 640x480 most other compact cameras have for sure!) Compact size, 2x as thick as an iPhone, but 3/4" shorter & 1/2" narrower! Cons: Can only take video up to a certain size at a time, no matter how big your memory card is. (eg.
Summary: I have been using this camera for two weeks, and I love every bit of it! The camera starts very fast. The moment you turn on the power switch, it is ready to roll. The wide angle lenses is perfect for many occasions such as self-portraits or group photos. The image is clear and the color is beautiful. The HD video is a plus!
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a Megxon that I bought last year. The Megxon was 10 megapixal, but had no stablization and never did take good pictures, so when the charger quit I decided to just get another camera. I love this camera. It is small and balanced, so it is easy to hold and use. The pictures are just great! I got memory cards and all of the cords and a carrying case. The price was great and the shipping ws phenomenal.
Summary: I have purchased this camera to replace my Pentax Optio S5i (see my review). The smaller the camera, the more chance you will take it with you, and despite being an advanced amateur photographer, 97% of my family pix are taken with compact cameras. LIKES: This Panasonic is a real standout from the usual with its 25mm ultra-angle lens, lens-based vibration reduction, and its intelligent auto mode.
Summary: I am an advanced amateur with a Leica M8 as my high end camera. I bought this after reading all the reviews to replace my Pentax Optio S5i camera. This little camera has a great 25-125mm zoom with iA control. I am very glad with the quality of the files and the quality of the lens- even wide open in the corners. Any minor imperfections will NEVER been seen in printing pix up to 8x10. The LCD screen is bright and detailed.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought both FX37 and LX3. It turns out FX37 is more portable. The zoom of FX37 is better for video while FX is rather limited with 60mm zoom. Overall, I am very happy with this and might want to sell LX3 later.
Summary: I recently received this camera as a birthday gift and couldn't be happier! It is a replacement for a Sony camera that I have used for awhile. I have already found that the Lumix takes better pictures, has more functions, and is simply, just a better product. I generally take photos of everyday events...parties, concerts, etc.... and dabble in outdoor scenery shots.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I rarely leave home without a camera so compact was paramount but at the same time I wanted a solid performer. The Canon 790IS and Sony W170 were on my short list with the FX-37. This is my first non-Canon camera since 2002; it edged out the Canon 790IS only because of its size but am very pleased with it. I primarily use it indoors/low light environments which is brutal on point and shoots. I have more good shots than bad with this one.
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I bought this camera for my wife, who uses it mainly for people pics. The image quality is excellent, and the zoom range is perfect for all around use. Shutter lag can be an issue, but it is hard to take an out of focus image. Video quality is better than my video camera. All in all, a Great camera for the money.
Pros: Bright LCD, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality
