Panasonic Lumix Reviews
[easyazon-block asin=”B004KKZ0KG” align=”left”] Almost all Panasonic Lumix reviews have one thing in common. The Panasonic Lumix range of cameras are packed full of useful features. The Lumix DMC-FX7 is no exception to this rule because it comes with an incredible array of built-in features.
As a compact digital camera, this model is suitable for a good choice for holiday snaps and for the occasional photographer. Its 5-megapixel resolution means that the picture quality is good with details remaining sharp and in focus.
For close-ups, there is 4X optical zoom that is enhanced even further when shooting in macro mode. Amongst the features in the DMC-FX7 are nine shooting modes, a choice of three image parameters and a convenient continuous shooting mode.
Design wise, it is of good proportion and weight for a compact camera. It is easy to carry around in a pocket and is light enough that it will not become a burden if carried around all day. The controls are easy to use and despite the small size of the body, the LCD viewing screen is still a sizeable 2.5 inches.
This large screen makes it easier to frame shots properly and offers a high standard of detail when viewing the images on playback. The downside of the small design is it is more susceptible to picture shakes and excessive use of the image stabilization feature is sometimes needed.
Overall, the DMC-FX7 is a well-designed compact camera that offers better features than some its rivals. Apart from some issues with picture shakes, it is a good quality, reliable camera that takes some great images. Its small-bodied design makes it ideal to take everywhere you go and the easy to use controls make it great for beginners. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 stands out especially when compared to other compact models in reviews. Be sure to read our more in depth Panasonic Lumix Reviews.
