Panasonic FX35 / FX36 Reviews

InfoSync reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Not only did it capture beautiful wide angle images, but it retained brightness in low light, which is one of the biggest concerns with a consumer camera… FX35 will tackle most opponents in its price range. ”

LetsGoDigital reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“If you are looking for a camera with an interesting zoom range to be able to not only capture a landscape, but also a portrait, and you just want to make nice snapshots; the FX35 is an excellent combination that will give you a lot of joy..”

DigicamReview reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
” this camera does almost everything excellently. Image quality is excellent, and despite more noise than average, detail is very good..Add in an impressive widescreen HD video mode and you have an impressive all-round package, all squeezed into a tiny, stylish, metal camera. Highly Recommended.”

ThinkCamera reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 is an excellent compact and a perfect holiday camera. From class-leading ultra wide-angle shots at 25mm with little distortion, to longer zoom shots at 100mm – the range covers the majority of snaps you’d ever need, and image quality’s pretty solid throughout.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Performance from the FX35 was very good for a 10-megapixel camera. From startup, the camera is able to capture its first image just 2.5 seconds after being turned on. The shutter delay is almost instantaneous when the camera is pre-focused and 6/10 of a second when allowing the auto focus to work. ”

TrustedReviews reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Image quality is also very good, with a lot of credit going to the superb lens, which provides excellent sharpness almost right across the frame, blurring only a little in the far corners at wide angle. Despite its exceptionally short focal length the lens also produces very little wide-angle distortion, producing almost perfectly straight parallel lines.”
Rating: ★★★★½

ImagingResource reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“So how did the Panasonic FX35 do on our image quality tests in the lab? In some respects, the Panasonic FX35 did very well. The Leica lens, for example, delivered very low distortion at both wide angle and telephoto focal lengths… ”

BusinessWeek reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“The Good: Compact, wide-angle lens camera with smart software. The Bad: Proprietary connector requires special cables; no viewfinder. The Bottom Line: A simple, extremely intuitive point-and-shoot that takes excellent pictures”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Cameras.uk reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Picture quality is very good, the camera is stylish and it is also easy to use. The camera also has the widest lens I have tested for a compact camera. It will also slip into a pocket..”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMag reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Recycle time and shutter lag, at 2.7 and 0.3 seconds, respectively, were almost identical to the FX55′s results, which were very good. You shouldn’t have any problem capturing quick shots.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

DCRP reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“The FX35 takes good quality photos, though there are definitely some issues to point out. On the whole, photos were well-exposed, with pleasing, vivid color. Images are on the soft side,”
Rating: N/A

LaptopMag reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Panasonic crams a lot into the Lumix DMC-FX35, including an expansive zoom range that’s perfect for landscape photos and an innovative Intelligent Scene Selector. However, its overall picture quality was inconsistent, keeping the FX35 from being a top pick..”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

CameraLabs reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“So if you’re in the market for a slim, light compact that’s smart in both senses of the term, it should definitely be on your shortlist. And so long as you’re aware of the noise issues at higher sensitivities, we can Highly Recommend it…”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FX36 is an impressive compact camera combining good quality 10-megapixel images with a smooth design and some great beginner modes. Unfortunately, the price tag will put it out of reach for some users.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET Asia reviews the Panasonic FX35 / FX36 and writes;
“The good: 25mm wide-angle lens; HD-quality video recording; elegant design; maximum ISO of 6,400. The bad: Slightly soft images; focusing a tad slow. The bottom line: A worthy successor to the FX33, the FX36 is a compact powerhouse capable of delivering decent-quality pictures and HD videos. ”

While I like the camera for its look and wide-angle, I feel that the shots of people especially does not turn out fantastic. Somehow, the skin tone looks like they’ve been photoshopped – The skin tone often resembles brush/ blur effects in photoshop. Would anybody know how to fix this?
