Compared to... Fujifilm FinePix F10

Below you will find a studio comparison between the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 and the Fujifilm FinePix F10 Zoom at ISO 400.

See later in the review for the FX01's special 'high sensitivity' ISO 800 / 1600 mode.

At ISO 400 the advantages of the Super CCD sensor used in the FinePix F10 are obvious, with the FX01 image looking noisy by comparison. You can still see the 'watercolor' effect common to all Panasonic models, but the results are not that far from with what we'd expect from a camera in this class at ISO 400, albeit one with higher than average chroma noise. Note that we found noise (and the visible effects of noise reduction) got progressively worse at all ISO settings as light levels dropped, making the ISO 400 ouptut all but unusable in very dim conditions.
