  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 is a cute compact camera that sports a nice wide-angle lens, but its so-so image quality keeps it from reaching its full potential.
  • Pros: Compact, lightweight design; wide-angle 3.6x optical zoom lens; optical image stabilization.
  • Cons: Mediocre image quality.

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 ($349) is a midrange camera in Panasonic's ultra-compact camera lineup. It features an 8 Megapixel CCD, wide-angle 3.6X optical zoom lens, optical image stabilization, 3-inch LCD display, widescreen movie mode, and superb battery life. It's closest competition is undoubtedly the Canon PowerShot SD870 IS, which I just reviewed.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (by ultra-compact standards), though see issues below, Wide-angle, 3.6X optical zoom lens, Optical image stabilization, Ultra-compact metal body, comes in three colors, Huge 3-inch LCD display; screen visible outdoors and in low light; useful Power LCD and High Angle features, Snappy focus speeds; very good low light focusing, Impressive continuous shooting modes, Tons of scene modes; camera can automatically select a scene mode for you, Well i...
  • Cons: Visible noise at lowest ISOs; noise reduction kicks in soon after, smudging details; some corner blurriness, Redeye a big problem, LCD resolution no better than smaller screens, No optical viewfinder, No metering option; more manual controls would be nice, High sensitivity scene mode worth skipping, Flimsy door over battery/memory card compartment, No USB 2.0 High Speed support, Not much built-in memory, Camera manual quality leaves much to be desired

  • Excerpt: Panasonic churns out compact cameras like sausages from a sausage factory. At the end of this string of products (14 so far this year) comes the FX55, which comes with a very creditable 8MP sensor, a 28mm wide-angle lens, face-detection technology and a 3-inch LCD spread all over the back. What makes it taste a little bit different to its peers is the intelligent Auto mode, of which more later.

  • Conclusion: A great camera but when you compare it to what a 12 megapixel camera can do for the same money it looks a bit lame.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 is a stylish ultra-compact camera that you can carry with you wherever you go. It's quite responsive with quick focusing, even in low-light conditions, and an adequate Continuous mode of 3fps. Panasonic have focused on making the DMC-FX55 the ultimate point and shoot camera, with a new Intellligent Auto mode that achieves great results in most situations with very little input required from the user.

  • Excerpt: Lumix DMC-FX55 jest jedną z ostatnich premier aparatów marki Panasonic, przypadających na obecny rok kalendarzowy. Mimo iż model ten został wprowadzony wraz z nadejściem wiosny, to śmiało można powiedzieć, że zyskał już liczne grono swych zwolenników. Dlatego też warto przyjrzeć mu się „bliżej”. Już na samym początku produkt zaskakuje nas (pozytywnie oczywiście) swą łatwością obsługi.
