Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 review

I keep revising my opinion for the better.

I purchased this cheap when the FX35 came out as a P&S backup to my Nikon DSLR. It is a lovely object, that has excellent handling, and a useful 28mm equivalent of excellent quality.

Pixel peeping at 100% reveals noise even at base ISO, but you don't see it at normal viewing size on screen, nor do you see it on 10x8 prints. Prints look fantastic although it is revealing of the limited DR.

I have previously been unhappy with the 100% noise at base ISO, but my Fuji F45 with half the pixel density is no better. Viewed on screen at real world viewing size the output is excellent and the printed output is even better.

I would recommend it.


Usual small sensor issues, i.e. limited DR and smearing and detail loss above ISO 400.
