Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100
Released September, 2007
The Pros:Produces bright, vibrant photos out of the box - no configuration required. Built with a quality lens - pictures end up clear, sharp and color saturated. Looks and feels good to operate - features a sturdy, solid construction.
The Cons:Lacks advanced user controls such as shutter, aperture, or manual modes. Scene modes are largely ineffective - they don't really make a difference. Higher ISO modes create a noticeable amount of film grain.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 produces high megapixel photos through a small 1/1.72” CCD, meaning users can take photos up to 4000 x 3000 in size. This is enough resolution for just about any of the standard print sizes, including the 8” x 10” format. The FX100 is compatible with several memory card formats, including SD, SDHC and MMC. With its lithium-ion battery, photographers can expect to get approximately 320 shots on a single charge. While the optical zoom is relatively low at 3.6x, the digital zoom extends to 7.0x. Novice users will likely appreciate the intelligent ISO control and the 20 scene modes for a straight forward way of enhancing photos. Software, a battery charger, carrying case and strap is included in the box.
