I have bought this camera for my wife, and to have a pocketable alternative camera myself. My wife is happy with it - the interface is very easy, it's small, and produces good pictures. There is nothing really to complain about, prints are great and on web galleries pics look nice too. Sure, in low light situations there may be some noise or washing out, but those are not the typical shooting conditions for her. Why I like it - there are not that many pocket cameras in the market that have ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX50
As a professional Wedding photographer and longtime user of the lumix line, I must say this is the finest camera of its kind at any price. I also own the FZ20 and the FZ50, which are very fine instruments. The FX50 fits into my arsenal seemlessly. There is a zero learning curve moving to use with the FX50. It is fantastic as a backup at weddings for use as a very discrete candid capture device. The image quality is sufficient to provide superb quality 8x10 prints to the client, unminipulated ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
As other reviews have noted, there's a fair amount of noise in dark areas of images even at ISO 100 but you've got to blow them up a lot for it to be really noticeable. If you look at this as a snapshot camera and don't expect to create immaculate 11"x14" prints I doubt the average buyer will be disappointed with the image quality. As should be expected from a lens this compact with this zoom range, it is soft at the extremes of the range (very soft at full telephoto while full wide-angle is ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review

overall a very good small camera, loaded with features, and it takes very good photos. Problems: I bought this to update my fx9. I had this one about a week and there were small scratches on the viewing screen. I figured that they had been there from the beginning and exchanged it and now, a month later, the new one has scratches on it. I haven't abused it ... just routine use. And, there is not a scratch on my fx9...and I've even stored that one, caseless, in a bag with other items in it. ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
I bought this camera to force myself out of the "birding" mode. My other two cameras, the FZ30 and TZ1, both have long zooms, and most shots I take are at full zoom. But using this camera is a real treat! First of all, I invoked the "i-ISO" mode, curious to see where its limits are. It seems like as long as there's more than a candle lighting the scene, there's enough light! It's taken many low-light shots, from ISO 250 through 800, and noise doesn't usually crop up at all. The only time I se ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
