Expert review by : Chris Jager (

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS42 digital camera


A cheap compact digital camera that does the basics well

Vibrant colours, cheap, decent low-light performance

Images could be sharper, nothing to make it stand out from the crowd

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS42 is an ultra-affordable compact camera that does the basics well. It might not excel in any one area, but at this price, it's not supposed to. A good choice for skint casual users.
