Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9

 

The FX9 ticks all the boxes for a 6MP camera and sports Leica branding but it still doesn't help this effort from Panasonic

Panasonic Lumix FX9 review

 

Panasonic Lumix FX9

Optical stabilization improves low-light shooting without flash; jewel-like design and build; decent color rendition; snappy performance.

Some minor lens aberrations; image-processing artifacts; several controls and icons don't make sense without manual.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 is a beautifully built pocket camera that's good for slow-shutter shooting but suffers from a variety of image flaws.

Panasonic DMC FX9

 

Panasonic DMC FX9 Review. This camera is just about small enough to fit into a pocket. It is one of the few pocket sized digital cameras to also have image stabilisation.

Indoor photos ; Simple, clean design ; Easy to use ; Optical image stabilizer

Small capacity memory card supplied

"The Panasonic DMC FX9 is a strong all round digital camera. I was especially impressed by the photos I took indoors, but this camera can also hold its own outside too."

Panasonic Lumix FX9

 

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

Review: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX9

 

The Panasonic FX9 is a very natty little number, with a good mixture of technical features and features that make it easier for you to take better photos but it is also a quite expensive camera. So is it worth buying?...

Small and slim ; Excellent battery life

Sometimes unwieldy design ; Price

In a very crowded market place in which there is a camera for every pocket and every preference, this may well prove a popular camera especially with holiday makers. Although price probably matches performance, some will consider it overpriced, and if...

Review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

The Panasonic DMC-FX9 looks similar to its predecessor, the FX8. The main difference is the 6MP resolution instead of 5MP.

Expert review by : Andrew Kliem (goodgearguide.com.au)

Panasonic DMC-FX9

 

One of the things we love about the 6 megapixel DMC-FX9 is its looks. The DMC-FX9 comes in a sleek, compact silver chassis and feels extremely solid. ...

Very fast, looks great, great battery life

Irritating controls

The Panasonic DMC-FX9 is a wonderful looking compact camera that takes nice shots, has great battery life and operates very quickly.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Review

 

The original FX7 was announced in July 2004 and went on to be one of the best-selling cameras of last year thanks to its winning combination of cool styling, compact dimensions, big screen and image-stabilized Leica lens. After a fairly disappointing...

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...

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...

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...
