Digicam Review has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX30. This 7.2MP DMC-FX30 features a 3.6x optical zoom (equivalent to 28-100mm on a 35mm film camera), f/2.8 brightness and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. Measuring around 94.9mm x 51.9mm x 22.0 mm and weighing 132 grams, the FX30 features the Intelligent Image Stabilization system which combines MEGA O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Intelligent ISO Control and compensates for both hand-shake and motion blur. Here is the verdict.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX30 is an excellent ultra compact digital camera – image quality is very good with great colour and detail although noise and lack of detail at the higher ISO settings causes some concern. The camera offers an excellent Leica wide-angle 3.6x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, helping you get sharp, crisp, blur free images even in low light. The camera is very solidly built and you can take it anywhere and use in almost every situation. The camera has a clear and easy to see screen, and excels in ease of use, providing quick and easy access to all it’s features. The camera responds quickly with a quick focusing time, fast shutter response, and extremely quick 3fps continuous shooting mode. As well as offering all this, the Panasonic is noticably cheaper than other cameras featuring wide-angle lenses, making this an excellent choice!
