Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX3 Review

I got this camera as a gift. I was really happy when I got it because I desperately needed a camera and it had some nice features:
1. 2 or 10 second self timer.
2. A review button so you can check the picture without having to turn the dial.
3. Long-lasting battery.
4. Leica lens.
5. Lightweight.
6. Different display modes.
7. Mounting point for a tripod.
8. Different SCN(scene) settings.


I haven’t had any serious problems, but there are some things that annoy me:
1. You can’t zoom in or out in video mode.
2. It cuts the video at the start and at the end.
3. It only has 3x optical zoom.
4. Only 115k screen dots.
5. The screen gets scratched easily.
6. It takes too long to cycle between photos.
7. Slow autofocus and searches too much for focus point.
8. Motion sensor doesn’t work with simple picture setting.
9. The microphone is on the top.
10. No viewfinder.
