ComputerActive has posted a short review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01, the world’s smallest point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 14.02.06) with 28mm wide angle Leica DC zoom lens, featuring a 6.0 megapixels (CCD), Leica DC 3.6x optical zoom (equivalent to 28-102mm) lens, Image Stabilizer, and a 2.5-inch LCD screen.
“Good Points: Wide angle zoom, 3.6x optical zoom with the ability to extend to 5x, High Angle mode for increased screen visibility when attempting awkward shots
Bad Points: Occasional ‘purple fringing’ on some shots, Some controls require fingertip operation
Verdict: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 is a competent, carry anywhere, point and shoot. It’s easy to use and marries some unusual yet useful features to quality optics. ”
