Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5


Optical image stabilization. Good recycle time. Fast (though limited) burst mode.

Flash shots exhibit some noise. No manual aperture or shutter controls.

The Nikon Coolpix 3200 is an entry-level compact digital camera that's easy to use, with an emphasis on scene select modes for foolproof shooting. The camera's image quality is acceptable for an entry-level camera.

Panasonic's DMC-FX5 is one of the firm's latest 4-megapixel cameras to hit the market. Will its optically stabilised 3x optics be enough to distinguish itself from the competition?
