I've now used this camera for a variety of shots, and I am quite impressed. Color is quite good, as is white balance. I don't see much distortion, even at the wider lens setting (when shooting close portraits, self-portraits). ISO 400 will show quite a bit of noise, but the noise reduction in Photoshop reduced it away to almost nothing. ISO 80 results in beautiful images, even with broad areas of solid color and in low light. Macro works very well, getting closer than I've been able to get ...

there's only so much a camera of this size can do, and the fx9 does it pretty darn well. no major 'gotchas' as far as i'm concerned; just the usual concerns for a camera of this class: noise (not too horrible); undersized battery (better than last year's); underpowered flash (well, they all are); lack of manual controls (buy a dSLR or high end P&S). this is a very good subcompact camera.

The FX9 is a great ultra compact camera. I have the Panasonic FZ30 camera too and found the image stabiliazation feature to be so good that I wanted it any camera I own from now on. The image stabilization helps get crisp photos when taking hand held shot (no tripod). The feature is even more critical when using a tiny camera like this one, as camera shake becomes a major problem. The photos from the FX9 are great and the camera has performed well. This is the ultimate, go-anywhere travel ...

Already own a pana FZ20, my wife wanted a compact camera to put in pocket for taking snapshots and "opportunity" photos without lugging around the large camera. Pro's: 1. Compact and light 2. Very well built - excellent construction. Feels solid. This is one great looking camera - 10 points for style! 3. Leica lens peforms very well, especially in daylight, outdoor situations where it excels. 4. Pictures very sharp, good detail, colours fairly true 5. Very easy to use - simple mode is good ...

Design and handling It fits easily in my pocket and is a true carry-anywhere camera. The controls for exposure compensation, bracketing, flash, and self-timer are at your fingertips. The LCD is nice & big and is usable in bright ligth (it is possible to press a botton for a brighter LCD). Battery life is great (270 shots CIPA). Focusing is fast and fairly reliable. There are five different focusing options (center high speed, center precision, point focus, 5 point vertical, 3 point horizontal ...

PANASONIC DMC-FX9 REVIEW The Panasonic DMC-FX9 is a fantastic ultra-compact digital camera. I did a lot of research before deciding on this camera, and now after having owned it for about a week I am convinced that I made a good choice. My main criteria were: 1. Must be ultra-compact pocketable size. 2. Must be capable of taking nice sharp, well exposed pictures. 3. Must have a large (2.5 inch) LCD screen with high resolution (>200,000 pixels). 4. Must have a tripod mount. 5. Preferably have ...

Superb ultra compact digicam.I have 2 digicam, olympus mju800 and Panasonic DMC-FX9, both are the best cameras. FX9 has 6 megapixels but the results is very comparable to 8 megapix on mju800. FX9 really user friendly and easy to use especially for beginers. No doubt to have FX9. I'm satisfied with the camera and the results. Problems: Still can't find any problem with FX9 so far. Dpreview website very helpfull in giving me usefull informations before I made decission to buy both cameras, ...

I agree with everything the previous reviewer has written; but would only like to quibble about there being no viewfinder. The huge back screen is wonderful for reviewing photos you have taken, but difficult to use for someone who wears reading glasses. You have to put them on to see the screen and take them off to see the subject! This is clumsy and results in photos being taken mostly by guessing what is on the screen. It's also not perfecton strong sunlight

Excellent camera in its category! I didn’t expect so great design in supercompact camera (I owned 2 supercompact olys and 2 canons before). The logic of interface is really incredible: every useful function can be easily called by one-two button presses. The most surprising features in so small amateur camera is Auto Bracket and capability to focus in self-timer mode (it focuses by itself after 10 seconds just before shot). The latter one is really useful since it’s usually difficult to get ...
