“From powered down to first shot, it took a little more than 2 seconds, which is an average performance. The second shot took slightly less time, clocking in at approximately 1.7 seconds. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DPInterface reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC FS5 and writes;
“At ISO 100 and 200, you can see that quality is what you’d expect from these low ISO settings – good with detail preserved. Noise goes up a little at ISO 400 and you will notice the difference of the Venus 4 processor compared to older Panasonic cameras”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC FS5 and writes;
“A slow burner of a camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5’s wide-angle lens caught our eye, despite some pedestrian styling. The more we used it, the more we fell in love with it as we uncovered yet more flexible options, making this accessible point-and-shoot another quiet triumph for Panasonic”

TrustedReviews reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC FS5 and writes;
“Images are pretty good for a Panasonic, usually notable for their high noise levels – especially on higher resolution models. Lower ISOs are fine, and even ISO 800 is relatively clan. By ISO 1600 though the noise reduction system turns the images a little mushy.”
