Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 Reviews

RegHardware reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“The DMC-FX33 is aimed squarely at the point-and-shoot photographer and its automated features do a pretty good job. The IA mode was rarely fooled, although we noticed that when shooting under artificial light, a number of shots had comet trails streaming from the lights or displayed a yellow cast.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ThinkCamera reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“the camera performs extremely well. Its autofocus system is quick, silent and efficient. Face recognition works well, although it can be easily confused by faces either turned to profile, or turned too far from the straight and narrow. There is some shutter lag, but it’s mild compared to most in class and it’s possible to take a shot every two and a bit seconds.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“Easy to use, looks good fits into a pocket. That all sounds good, but I was a bit disappointed by the picture quality I managed to achieve with this camera. Usually I like Panasonic cameras, but I struggled with this one.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CameraLabs reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“So if you’re not bothered about full manual control and can avoid higher sensitivities – or pixel-peeping – then the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 is a great compact camera. It’s smaller than most of the competition, offers a stabilised lens with 28mm wide angle coverage, and some of the best automatic features around.”

Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“Start-up time is OK, although a logo telling you what mode the camera is in is annoying more often than it is useful. In single-shot mode the FX33 respectably captures images with half a second between pictures, or two seconds for the flash to cycle. Autofocus is also fast, utilising several focus point options and an autofocus assist lamp.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“While image quality isn’t the FX33′s strong point, it still produces perfectly fine small prints, and thus its novice-friendly feature set and speedy operation makes it a good choice for those after a happy snap camera.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ePhotozine reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“There’s very nice detail in the ISO100 shot, but noise and artefacts are clearly visible in the grey card. At ISO200 the noise is becoming more colourful with green and purple, but the image is also slightly softer. At 400 the noise is more colourful and visible in the plain areas, and the image is softer again. At ISO800 there’s a noticeable deterioration in the image.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“Overall performance is good, although the 3.5-second start-up time is a little on the slow side…It has style, elegance, build quality, performance and simplicity of operation, and while it is slightly lacking in picture quality it will seldom disappoint, producing good pictures in almost any situation.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNETAsia reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and writes;
“Image quality at lower ISO levels (ISO 100-200) is very good, with slight noise at ISO 400 and very visible speckles at ISO 800. Beyond that, the detail softening and noise at higher ISO make it suitable mainly for low-light compensation…The bottom line: If you really crave a literal point-and-shoot capability in a camera, minus the hassles and flaws that come with most compact cameras, the FX-33 would possibly be your best bet so far.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
