Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX3

 

Entry-level 6MP Lumix is a well-built stunner

Beautiful design, Mega OIS

Low resolution LCD, Aggressive noise reduction

Excellent low-ISO image quality makes the FX3 a great option for the style-conscious buyer. While it may not have advanced shooting modes, its gorgeous looks, sensible resolution and image-stabilised lens make it a winner in our book.
