I read this forum prior to purchase as my earlier 'slip in pocket camera' was having problems (as well it might, given the life it led). Images are generally soft or 'indistinct' - yet it does produce some excellent macro shots. To put this view is perspective, I have been using digital for a fair few years now, from when 3MP was the tops, and I have three other cameras in regular use, so I had expectations of the Lumix almost matching my 8MP Powershot Pro 1 in image quality. The bottom line ...

takes excellent pictures - esp. landscape. i was afraid that the pictures wouldn't be sharp enough, but after having the camera for 6 months, i don't notice the reduced level of sharpness. another great thing is that the battery lasts a long time. one of my prior cameras was a canon and evidently they STILL haven't fixed that problem. i only had to charge this once every 3 weeks while i was on a 4 mo. trip around the world. Support for the camera was great. i had some spots from lint/dust ...

Excellent small camera. Very easy to use. Excellent photos in good conditions. Well built. Excellent value for money considering the Leica c-lux 3 is double the price. Problems: Not so good for indoor photography. Results so-so in dull conditions.

I arranged to return my FX37 after taking just a few shots. Compared with my Ixus 850IS the FX37 lacked detail, colour balance and exposure (on Auto) was way too dark. I will be purchasing a TZ5 instead.

This camera has very nice features, but since I bought it Panasonic launched something like 15 new cameras with similar characteristics: does anybody understand this strange politic? It's disappointing!!!!!!! Problems: Panasonic Strategic Marketing Policy

This is an excellent ultra-compact, that is small enough to take anywhere. The iA funtion makes the right exposure decisions correctly 95% of the time. The super-wide angle 25mm lens is a real boon to take in interior flash shots and landscapes. I found the pictures sharp, even more so if I reduce the quality to 5MP instead of 10MP. Problems: none

I've had the camera for a month and I'm very satisfied. I was after a small pocket camera with a wide angle lens and the Panasonic fits the bill. The camera has a quality feel about it and I like the matt surface better than the similar Leica model. Images have been good. So far only viewed on a screen, but color, exposure and sharpness are good. The stabilizer function is excellent and I have been happy with low light results. Pros: Its so small, I always have it with me. Nice modern design ...

I was on the search for a new digicam recently. Main requirement: it had to be small enough to fit in the pocket allowing me to carry it everywhere I go. So after a comprehensive shootout I found myself with two contenders: the FX37 and the FX150. So I lend both at my favourite seller and did a thorough testing. The FX150 had a slight resolution advantage, but IQ did not really profit from that because of unpleasant noise. At ISO 100 and 200 both cams were at similar levels, but from ISO 400 ...

I have owned the FZ18, FZ28, TZ3, FX35, FX500 and now this FX37. I have settled on a combo of the FZ-28 for creative stuff and huge lens range, manual control and such. I use the FX37 as my pocket camera. I agree with previous post, the lens range is one of the main bonuses. The quality if wonderful as well, better than FX500 just slightly. The feature set of great and the controls are easy to use. The battery life decent and it has been robust in many conditions. The only possible ...
