Panasonic Lumix FX80 Review
What Digital Camera
18 July 2012
Summary: Packed full of features and with a capable zoom lens, the FX80 appears as an excellent lifestyle compact on paper. It’s a shame, then, that it’s let down by an unrepsponsive touchscreen and lacklustre image quality.
Pros: Slim and attractive body, touch-control focus and shutter release works promptly
Cons: Touchscreen not as responsive as desired, general lack of detail in images, purple fringing common and apparent
Summary: A good choice for beginners and less confident users, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX80 takes care of the technical side of photography while you concentrate on finding good subjects and framing them. Light and slim, it's one to slip in your pocket for impromptu, spontaneous snaps.
Pros: Slim; Extremely easy to use; Sharp pictures; Good low-light performance.
Cons: Very few manual controls; a little limiting for all but beginners.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX80 is a fun little camera that will appeal to the tech savvy and anyone looking for a camera to replicate the vintage effect that's so popular at the moment. It's a neat little package that bursts with nice features such as the touch-screen and Leica lens.
