Panasonic Lumix FX60 Review
What Digital Camera
4 December 2009
Summary: The FX60 is a high-quality camera with many advanced automatic features. Build, performance and image quality are all above average, but it is very expensive and the six-year-old body design is a bit dated.
Excerpt: Outwardly, the solid feel, pocket sized Lumix DMC-FX60 point and shoot from Panasonic appears identical to the FX40 model that preceded it, with no-nonsense boxy design, slim 19.4mm depth and metallic silver finish to our review sample. Black, violet or blue are the other outer shell colours for fashion conscious consumers.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 is an easy to use point and shoot, demonstrating excellent build quality and giving results that great for the majority of everyday shooting. The HD video capture will please those who like to bring a little quality to their home movies and the battery life will see you through your average wedding. The FX60 stumbles on noise however, with crammed sensor showing its hand and bringing in noise sooner and many rivals.
Pros: Build quality, iA works well, image stabilisation, battery life
Cons: Image noise, lacks direct control, price, no HDMI
Conclusion: While only a small upgrade over their previous Lumix FX, the FX60’s new technology is clearly demonstrated by its consistently sharper results. An excellent choice if ease of use and svelte lines are important to you.
Excerpt: We like to believe that the camera-buying public is getting wise to the fact that more megapixels doesn't necessarily mean a better camera. Manufacturers are certainly looking for other ways to tempt customers, offering features such as HD video and smile detection. Panasonic's FX60 is one of the few models we've seen in recent months that instead makes a serious attempt to raise the stakes for image quality.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX65 Digicam - Better Each Time
8 October 2009
Conclusion: Instead of making quantum leap changes, each successive model of this FX series has seen incremental improvements, and the FX65 is the most refined model yet, striking a balance between features and quality. With Power O.I.S., quicker start-up, high-speed AF and good image quality, the FX65 is an excellent camera companion for any point and shoot photographer.
Excerpt: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 je malý digitální kompakt, který je osazen 12,7Mpx čipem s maximálním rozlišením 4000 x 3000 pix a vynikajícím objektivem Leica DC Vario-Elmarit s 5x optickým zoomem v rozsahu 25 - 125 mm.

Excerpt: Il serait presque dommage d'avoir à acheter le Panasonic FX60 : en effet il est beaucoup trop proche en prix officiel du ZX1 pour qu'on n'ait pas envie de franchir le pas vers ce dernier. Dans les faits, ce sont les "streetprices" les prix rencontrés en ligne ou en magazins qui justifieront... ou pas l'achat.
