Review of the Panasonic Lumix FX8 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

Every camera needs to have what the marketers call a USP, or Unique Selling Point. For Panasonic that has been, for a while now, Mega OIS

A wonderful camera that looks good, feels good and takes great shots. Highly recommended.

Small, stylish, very fast, great colour, nice features

Still very minor lag in certain spots, missing a few features that experienced photographers may want

Panasonic Lumix FX8

 

The Panasonic Lumix FX8 is an ultra-compact camera with a very useful feature not found on most competition: Optical image stabilization. Other than that, the Panasonic Lumix FX8 also includes a 2.5 inch LCD, full-fledged movie mode and excellent...

Ultra-compact and stylish ; Great battery life ; Optical image stabilization ; Large LCD ; Extremely fast ; Unlimited continuous shooting ; Excellent movie mode ; User friendly ; Noise levels slightly lower than on FX9 ; Good photo quality

No manual controls ; Low resolution LCD ; Low FPS rate for "infinite shooting ; Flimsy battery/card cover ; Red-eye ; Some soft photos ; No movie zoom

The Panasonic Lumix FX8 is a great camera: 5 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD, great battery life and best of all, optical image stabilization. The 2.5 inch LCD resolution is still the same as on the FX7 but is a lot brighter. OIS is not something you'll see...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX8

 

The main plus point on this camera is the very large view screen and no viewfinder. It is so easy to use.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX8

 

Easy to use. Fantastic pictures. Great video quality.

Concerned at durability of the cover for the battery compartment. It might prove fine, but looks a potential weak spot.

Good

 

If you want a point and shoot camera that will fit in your jeans pocket then this is a good value for money option.

Small and light, point and shoot style camera with lots of options. Very intuitive even for someone picking it up for the first time.

The quality of the photos don't seem to be as good after a year of use. Not sure why? The autoflash often comes on and off at random times so I force the feature as I want it now.
