Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 review
Feb 18, 2008

Just purchased two weeks ago after my Leica 2.1 Digilux died. Also purchased a 2gb SD card, extra battery and clip on Macro lens for about A$400 Most of my work is close up of goods and parts for customers. Also take pics of outside work using panoramic shots 16:9 and save via photomerge in Photoshop. Downing the image size to 800 wide pixels and saving 50% resolution gives good clarity pics under 100kb.

The on/off switch occassionally gets knocked and so I leave the camera in review mode. Usually store in my old leather Leica camera case.

IMO, this is a utility camera, I doubt it takes the best pictures for its class but price and quality of lenses are very good. Hope this helps, tks james

Problems:

In the manual, it says " the camera automatically sets the shutter speed and the aperture value according to the brightness of the subject". It relies heavily on the flash in low light situations instead of slower shutter speed to gather light.
