Ever dreamt of a premium compact camera with tons of features to brag about? Well, the new Panasonic Lumix FX80 digital camera is just that, as it comes loaded with elements worth drooling over. It is a slim bodied device meant to deliver high performance.
Before we delve deep into the pros and cons of the device, let us have a quick look at the things that the Panasonic Lumix FX80 digital camera has on offer.
Features Of Panasonic Lumix FX80
Few of the features of the Panasonic Lumix FX80 include 12 MP hi-speed CCD sensor, 5x optical zoom lens, optical image stabilization, 3 inch LCD touchscreen display, stereo sound, full HD video recording, 4fps continuous shooting and good ISO range (100 to 6400). The wide angle Leica lens and the 3D image capture feature are the other positives of the device. The Lumix FX80 has a decent battery backup and can click up to 240 snaps at a go.
Look And Feel
The new Panasonic Lumix FX80 digital camera is a seductively stylish device with a metal chassis and a well built design. The small size and the smooth design helps you to hold the camera well and shoot images on the go.
The device has dimensions of 96.3 x 56 x 19.4 mm and is rather light than most of the compact cameras currently hogging the limelight.
The Panasonic Lumix FX80 digital camera boasts of a sound video performance and good image quality. The short zoom range of the device allows it to manage the focus well. The automatic ISO selection, exposure settings and intelligent scene control are some of the notable features of the device.
It is a good photographic proposition which is highly proficient and yet very easy to use. The device is meant for them who wish to upgrade from their camera phones to an actual compact camera and yet retain the same intuitive controls which we generally find in our phones. The touchscreen is decent in size but is not as responsive as you would want it to be. The 230k dot resolution is again low, compared to the other devices in the same price category.
The Panasonic Lumix FX80 digital camera packs in a host of photographic features and still retains the compact form. Its features are apt for those who like creative photography. The device has a sturdy body, wide and bright lens, full HD video recording and is easy to use, but the unresponsive touchscreen, low resolution and lack of manual control would surely irk the masses.
Worst of all, the device has only two physical buttons and thus you are left with no choice other than using the touchscreen all the time. Hence, the Panasonic Lumix FX80 can prove to be a good device for those who value features over image resolution and prefer a touchscreen over manual controls. However, for others, using the device can be a little frustrating.
