A great portable all around camera for family events
7 August 2011
Summary: I have tried several models of these little Lumix cameras and this is the best for battery life,size, and quality of the images. The display is large and easy to see and images can be enlarged to check for crispness of focus. I can carry it in my pocket and "never be without a camera" for important events. The controls are easy to use and the flash is very effective for such a small camera.
Summary: The high resolution screen is excellent especially when operated in the brightness-boost mode (which I use all the time). The viewing angles for the LCD screen are very good horizontally, but not so good vertically. By this I mean that you can observe the screen from either side without the colors changing much but there are fairly major changes if you tilt the screen towards or away from you. The movie mode is excellent, especially in 30 fps, VGA (640 X 480 pixels).
Excerpt: "I was looking for a small point and shoot camera mainly to take pictures of the kids. I looked for about 6 months, checking various reviews and eventually decided on this one.

Took it on holiday for a week and never ran out. Spare batteries are cheap on ebay. Picture quality ...
Excerpt: "The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 is a great little 6M camera full of handy features with an optical zoom of 3x with a possible 4.1x. It has a very large clear LCD display so you can share your photos with your friends without printing off. There is a great selection of preset scene modes e.g. Portrait Sports Food Night Scenery Night Portrait Baby Soft skin Candlelight Fireworks Party Snow Starry Sky Self Portrait There is also a macro ...
Summary: I’m no photographer so please don’t expect this review to be technical. I can however say that this is a very fast camera with hardly any shutter lag. My last digital camera took great pictures (Nikon coolpix 3100) but unfortunately my five-year-old was quicker and so we always seemed to get after-the-event pics.
Pros: Very fast, Very easy to use, Good battery life. Great Screen
