Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 / FX2


Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7

Category: Point-and-Shoot

Panasonic now offers an ultra compact model in either black or all silver body: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 has 5-megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom with image stabilization, and macro focus at 5 cm (2 in.).

The FX7 is a very cool looking digital camera with lots of features underneath: 8-1/2,000 sec. shutter speed range, real-time histogram, grid lines to aid in keeping the horizontal level, scene modes to automate exposure setting in various situations, a large 2.5 in. LCD monitor (no viewfinder, though), an AF Assist Lamp for low-light focusing, and of course the image stabilized Leica lens all the Panasonic digital cameras are quickly becoming famous for. Plus, the FX7 is also Pictbridge-compatible, allowing images to be sent directly to a Pictbridge-compatible printer from the camera without going through a computer.

Though other ultra compacts may have a similar feature set, none yet has the image stabilization to negate camera shake at slow shutter speeds.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 is JeansPocket™ Certified and should appeal to those desiring a take anywhere ultra compact with image stabilization.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX2 is similar to the FX7 but sports 4-megapixel resolution, and lacks still image audio recording, audio dubbing, and has a 2 in. LCD monitor.
