Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 review


Of course, you're not going to get the same picture quality or level of user control with the Panasonic DMC-FX60 as with a DSLR - but compacts have the crucial distinction of being easy to carry, wherever you go.

Pictures in average to bright light conditions appeared fine but we were less convinced by low-light photos, and video may list a hi-def spec, but watch out for grainy, colour-limited video. But for ease of use and simple control, the Panasonic...

A beautiful camera with some smart useful features, hampered by a sensor that packs too many pixels into such a small space.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 review


Boasting ease of use and functional controls, the Lumix DMC-FX60 from Panasonic will suit the beginner to mid-level photographer.

Wide 25mm-125mm zoom; simple to navigate functions

Poor low-light images; filming HD video is grainy

Pictures in average-to-bright light conditions appeared fine, but we were less convinced by low-light photos and grainy, colour-limited HD video. However, for ease of use and functional controls, the FX60 wins our admiration for its simplicity of...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 review


Is the Panasonic Lumix FX60 the company's most advanced compact yet?

Build quality, image quality, reliability

Price, ageing design

The FX60 is a high-quality camera with many advanced automatic features. Build, performance and image quality are all above average, but it is very expensive and the six-year-old body design is a bit dated.

Panasonic DMC FX60


This is an excellent pocket camera. I was very impressed by the picture quality. I also found the camera easy to use and I like the feature set. This includes High Definition movies and image stabilisation. Recommended.

Picture quality - simple design - value for money

There is little that I can come up with

In my opinion the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX60 is one of the very best pocket cameras on the market. Picture quality compares with the best digital cameras in this category. The camera is also easy to use and has good response times.

Panasonic's new slimline 12.1MP Lumix goes on test

While only a small upgrade over their previous Lumix FX, the FX60's new technology is clearly demonstrated by its consistently sharper results. An excellent choice if ease of use and svelte lines are important to you.

Powerful, slim and good looking. We know what you're thinking but it's actually a description of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60.

Good build quality; Easy to use; Slim and light; Good portraits

A dedicated video button would be nice

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX65


It's a good camera that can take some beautiful pictures, but for the price and the lack of extra features, the FX65 doesn't live up to our expectations of value — and its video quality is terrible.

Lovely wide-angle 25mm lens with 5x optical zoom ; Looks pretty stylin ; Easy to use ; Takes some stunning pictures

Expensive ; No zoom in movie mode. At all. Nada. Not even digital ; Plus the movies are grainy and pretty bad ; Incremental updates to the previous camera. Oh, and it looks much the same too

Panasonic has priced the FX65 rather oddly: for AU$110 less you can get the 8x optical zoom, similarly wide-angled ZR1 which, while not quite as stylish, certainly won't look out of place on the runway. So essentially, you're paying a premium on the...
