The FX07 to me is as close to having a film IIIf loaded with Kodachrome as you can find. It's basic settings are all I need. I am having more fun with this camera than any of the dozens I own. I carry it on my belt and if I see something I think is a picture, I've got it! May get another one. (I'm been in Photography for 60+ years.) Problems: I can print to 20x30 with NO problem and the lens is astoundingly sharp! "I don't get no stinking noise!"

I returned this camera to the shop because there was too much noise. I should have taken the reports of the other users serious. The images in the dark were unacceptable. Even in daylight noise was visible while for example the featurewise equivalent Canon PowerShot SD500 (Digital IXUS 700) has no visible noise in daylight. To make matters even worse the colours on the panasonic FX07 were even 25% too saturated for outdoor pictures. This is a simple shoot and snap camera. If you want to ...

After several months of using this little camera, I am still quite happy. Most reviews of this camera are judged as poor. I have found that the typical "out of the box" auto settings are much less than par. The first images I took were close to horrible. If you set the iso to 100, shutter speed to 1 second, pictures are great. Keep in mind that I use a tripod for stills and only use flash on rare occasions. I have taken very good shots hand holding, at down to 1/3 second, using stable mode ...

I purchased this camera to complement my Samsung 815 Pro. It is exactly what I wanted. On a recent trip through the Prairies and Rockies, I took both cameras, but used the FX07 almost exclusively, due to its convenience and quality of images. I have several 8x12 prints, they are of excellent quality. Yes, you can see some "noise" when you look very closely. Even then, it is far less than with film, and of a completely innocuous character. Overall, an excellent camera. Highly ...

Bad image quality, worse than fx01

This model pretty much matches in detail all the on-line reviewes in terms of image quality, controls, and features. IMage stabilization, menu system and zoom range are all excellent, and I liked having a 28mm with acceptable purple fringing. Metering was good outdoors, but poor in dim light. I've used this for a month and like it overall, but there are a number of problems that bother me enough to return it. It's a pity, because aside from these problems (not all of them deal-breakers in ...

I got my FX07 two weeks ago and have taken 200+ pictures, mostly of my three months old baby, indoors, without flash. Yesterday I finally uploaded the pictures to my PC and I was stunned - the noice level was horrible. Today, I took about 50 various test pictures with my three years old Canon IXUS 500 and the Panasonic. Every single picture was better with the old Canon. Even outdoor pictures had more detail and less noice. No setting helps the Panasonic. I'm so disappointed. I really wanted ...

This is a much maligned camera, and I'm here to say a word in its defense. Like many I read the reviews of "noise" but decided to purchase the camera anyway. I've not regretted it since. In fact, I love this little gem of a camera. I handled its direct competitor the Canon SD800is, and wasn't as impressed. I'm only using this camera for quick snapshots and don't print larger than 5" x 7", so it's more than adequate for those tasks. If I want better image quality and larger prints, I use my ...

I’m shearing the opinion of LindyB. The direct borderless prints size super a3 (329x483mm), done with Epson 2100, despite of some cropping resulting from different aspect ratio of super A3 and 4:3 of the Panasonic 07 frame are almost as sharp as average D200 pictures (done with Nikkors 85/1,8 and 80-200/2,8) and at wide angle end visibly better than prints of photos done with Nikkkor 20/2,8 at 2,8-4. The wide angle end of 07 (equiv.of 28mm) is extremely brilliant and sharp even wide open ...

An excellent point and shoot camera. The build quality is superb, it looks very stylish, and it feels good in the hands. The image quality is excellent, both indoors and out. I have had none of the noise problems reported by other owners. The camera is fast and very easy to use. The menu system is logical and there are plenty of features. The 28mm wide angle Leica lens is excellent and the image stabilisation is very effective. I love my little FX07. Using it is a pleasure and I can't fault it. ...
