  • Conclusion: The DMC-FX7 (and it's minor upgrade, the FX8) were deservedly popular pocket cameras with a unique selling point; an image-stabilized Leica lens. The only serious issues we identified when reviewing the FX7, namely poor battery life and a low resolution LCD screen, have been fully addressed in this...
  • Pros: High resolution, clean images, Excellent color - vivid but natural, High quality construction, lovely design, Good edge-to-edge sharpness, Reliable white balance, Feels fast and responsive, High speed focus near class-leading performance, Big, bright, high resolution screen, Improved movie mode, ...
  • Cons: Visible noise reduction effects at ISO 160 and above, Noisy at ISO 400 (better than previous generation, however), Some vignetting at F2.8, Results a little soft at F6.3 and over, No manual control of shutter speed or aperture, Occasional exposure problems and blown highlights when shooting in ve...

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix FX9 is a great camera: 6 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD, great battery life and best of all, optical image stabilization. The 2.5 inch LCD has a significantly higher resolution than the one on the FX7/FX8 and is a lot brighter too.
  • Pros: Ultra-compact and stylish, Great battery life, Optical image stabilization, Excellent LCD (Sharpness AND visibility), Extremely fast, Unlimited continuous shooting, Excellent movie mode, User friendly, Good photo quality
  • Cons: No manual controls, Low FPS rate for "infinite shooting", Flimsy battery/card cover, Red-eye, Some soft photos, No movie zoom

  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-FX9 is a sleek and very pocketable 6-megapixel camera with a high-quality Leica 3x optical zoom that features Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilization, a feature that counters shaky hands, the main culprit for blurry pictures.

  • Cons: Images on the soft side; some purple fringing, Redeye a problem, No optical viewfinder, Needs more manual controls, Flimsy plastic door over memory card / battery compartment, Tiny 16MB card included

7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: $769 4.5 stars digital camera has a 6 megapxel sensor and a 3x Leica zoom lens. The focal length of the lens is 35–105mm film equivalent. The is small, with a face area the same as a credit card and it is 25mm thick. Construction is metal.
  • Pros: The camera has image stabilisation and in use the so-called Mega Optical Image Stabiliser works extremely well. A digital photography novice used the FX9 to take consistently good pictures indoors with the ISO set to 200 and without using the flash. Exposure, white balance and focus are spot on a...

  • Summary: : The Panasonic Lumix FX9 is a very stylish ultra compact digital camera that provides very good 6 megapixel images. The camera improves on the FX7 with a high resolution screen, much better battery life, more megapixels, and much better video mode, yet is available for less that the FX7 was.
  • Pros: Very good image quality, Very compact and stylish with a solid metal body (will easily fit in pockets), Built in "Mega Optical Image Stabilisation" allows blur free low-light photos., 2.5" screen is good with a high resolution (207,000 pixels), 16:9 aspect ratio available, Fast continuous shootin...
  • Cons: High noise (ISO200 and above looses detail), Flash can over-expose images, Small memory card, Purple fringing slightly higher than average

  • Summary: A brilliant all-round performer. The Panasonic Lumix FX9 is easy to use and with the pretty good image stabiliser you can assure that your photos will be relatively steady too. The FX9 proved to be excellent and colour rendition natural and accurate. With the Leica lens you can’t go far wrong.
