Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 Reviews

Cameras.uk reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“The Panasonic DMC FX55 has a few extra features when compared to a standard point and shoot model. Despite this ease of use remains one of the camera’s strong points. Picture quality is above average in most instances, although noise starts to creep in when light starts to drop. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ePhotozine reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
” ISO400 is lighter still and noise is starting to show on the full size image whilst ISO800 shows more sharpening, but it’s worth pointing out at this stage that the noise shown is very minimal for this stage and is a very good result.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCRP reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“Camera performance is very good. The FX55 is ready to start taking pictures in 1.7 seconds, which is average these days. Focusing speeds are superb if you’re using the high speed AF modes, and snappy without them. Low light focusing is very good, thanks to the camera’s AF-assist lamp. Shutter lag wasn’t noticeable, and shot-to-shot speeds were between 1.5 and 2.5 seconds, depending on whether you’re using the flash.”

InfoSync reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“We loved almost everything about the FX55′s design; it felt sturdy, had logical button placement and had a huge, clear LCD screen. The video looked great, we loved the multitude of formats, and the SCN modes were somewhat helpful. All in all, the FX55 doesn’t do anything perfectly (we would have liked to zoom during video recording, the on/off switch is problematic), but it does everything well, and is a solid all-around camera. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile point-and-shoot.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCWorld reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“Image quality is about average for 8-megapixel cameras we’ve tested recently. The FX55 earned middle-of-the-field scores for sharpness and for color and exposure accuracy in the PC World Test Center. Scenic shots taken in bright sun had good color saturation; wide-angle shots exhibited nice detail, but those taken at full telephoto were a little soft.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.uk reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 does what all snapshot cameras should by virtue of being swift in operation, easy to use and delivering colour-rich, crisp aberration-free images straight out of the camera. The fact that it also features a 28mm wide-angle lens and a better than average overall range is icing on the cake.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 andw writes;
“In summary, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 is a very easy-to-use, fairly responsive compact camera that is particularly well suited to the beginner or anyone who requires a point and shoot camera.”
