Panasonic Lumix ZX1 digital camera review

25 January 2010
  • Summary: With recent introductions to the ‘big zoom, small camera’ market from Fuji with its innovative F70EXR and Kodak with its great value Z950 – both offering 10x zoom lenses – it may be time that Panasonic’s little sister grew up.
  • Pros: Larger than average zoom range, easy operation, pocket friendly size, reasonable feature set and price
  • Cons: Slender dimensions mean it's tricky for users to get a good firm grip on the camera when shooting handheld, unassuming run of the mill design

Expert Review

23 January 2010
  • Summary: My Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 review finds one of the better fixed lens cameras available on the market. The FZ40 offrs a 24X optical zoom lens and a great mixture of manual and automatic control features.
  • Pros: Great mix of automatic and manual control features
  • Cons: You'll want a tripod with this camera, to protect against camera shake, Camera is very large, Occasional focus problems at full zoom extension, Beginner photographers may be overwhelmed with all of the manual control features

Panasonic DMC ZX1

12 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC ZX1 does the job it sets out to do very well. The turn on and shutter lag times are very impressive. The camera takes a good picture in most situations and there are one or two extra features thrown in such as High Definition movies.
  • Pros: Picture quality - simple design - value for money - turn on time - shutter delay time
  • Cons: There is nothing that springs to mind as a serious weakness

  • Summary: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZR1 is a versatile camera with specifications that belie its small size. It can take photos at a maximum wide angle of 25mm, and its 8x zoom can reach up to 200mm. It's easy to use, has excellent focusing, and can take vibrant and reasonably clear photos.
  • Pros: Compact body, huge zoom, relatively crisp shots, excellent focusing
  • Cons: Mode dial is too loose and is easily knocked out of place, wide-angle shots have some distortion

  • Conclusion: Mit schnellem Auslösen und ordentlich Zoompower ist der Einsteiger für Schnappschüsse im Urlaub bestens gerüstet. Einschränkungen gelten bei Dunkelheit und Aufnahme-Situationen mit wenig Licht, hier stört ab ISO 400 das Bildrauschen.
  • Pros: Schnell, Klasse Weitwinkel, 8-faches Zoom, Wirksamer Stabilisator
  • Cons: Rauschen bereits bei ISO 80 recht hoch, Dazu ein teils heftiger Filter
