Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5

 

Can Panasonic's FS range deliver a worthy performance?

It's a great camera but doesn't dazzle. Typical of many other 10 mp compacts on the market at the moment.

Panasonic DMC FS5

 

The Panasonic DMC FS5 is a 10 megapixel digital camera with a 4x wide angle lens. It is a handy, pocket size and I was very impressed by the quality of the photos I was able to produce with it. If you are in the market for a small camera that is easy...

Ease of use - design and build quality - automatic features - overall picture quality - wide screen movies

Shutter delay could be that little bit faster

"This is a very good little camera. It scores well for ease of use and I was very impressed by picture quality. If you are looking for a small camera that can produce sharp, bright photos with plenty of colour then take a good look at the DMC FS5."

Review of Panasonic DMC FS5 digital camera

 

Good points: Substantial 50Mb of internal memory. Easy to use. Smooth zoom. Drawbacks: Scored poorly on the high-contrast test. This is when a piece of white A4 paper is partially placed in front of the lens blocking some of the main subject to find...

Improved Intelligent Auto mode, vibrant 10.1Mp images, good quality LCD screen

Occasionally lethargic response times, Easy Zoom seems pointless

The DMC-FS5 inarguably puts the fun back into photography by giving you quality shots that you don't have to work towards. If you're in the point-and-click brigade, you definitely won't be disappointed.

We've just got our hands on the 10-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5. Panasonic has rocked our world since the TZ3, and this latest arrival from PMA is shaping up to be just as popular.

With a March release date, you should be able to find the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 in stores now. Stay tuned for out full review.

Panasonic Lumix FS5

 

The Lumix FS3 (8 megapixels) and Lumix FS5 (10 megapixels) are two small point-and-shoot cameras from Panasonic. Both cameras pack the latest Venus Engine 4 processor, optical image stabilization, 2.5 inch LCDs, good battery life and many scene modes....

Stylish and good build quality (metal tripod mount is rare!) ; Optical image stabilization ; Very good battery life ; Fairly powerful flashes for cameras this size (Especially FS3) ; Above average camera performance ; Very good LCD visibility ; Plenty...

Limited manual controls (certainly no manual exposure here) ; No red eye removal and movie editing features ; Face Detection needs a direct, clear view of faces to work nicely ; Flimsy battery compartment door ; Finer details (ie fabric lines) removed...

The compact little Panasonic Lumix FS3 and FS5 cameras are two which have much to offer with their small designs, nice point-and-shoot operation and great performance. Set aside their minor differences, both cameras have features which casual picture...
