Conclusion: With ultracompact cameras, performance and optical compromises are inevitable. Still, we expected more from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7. It's a beautiful camera packed with features, but it lacks the speed and image quality necessary to make it our top choice.
Pros: Beautifully crafted. Image stabilization feature is unique in such a small camera. Large 2.5-inch LCD.
Cons: Images were noisy and unremarkable. Too much shutter lag if you don't prefocus.
