The Panasonic FX700 is a 14MP compact that crams a fairly impressive amount of technology into a comparatively small frame. With full manual controls, a 3inch touchscreen and the ability to shoot HD movies only having a 5x optical zoom is something of...

A nice camera that offers the best combination of auto functions and manual control we’ve seen so far. It has its foibles and the price is high, but it’s a good all-rounder Overall Our provides the latest photography news, reviews,...

We have mixed feelings about the FX700, which scrapes through to a fourth star by the skin of its teeth. Although the camera has a decent video mode, focal range and is generally responsive, picture quality is somewhat disappointing. Plus, noise...

A competent pocket snapshot from Panasonic’s style range that is very much a pea from the same pod as the FX70 released earlier this year. If you don’t need a zoom range beyond 5x, and will be staying away from the higher ISO settings,...

This 14.1-megapixel digital camera from Panasonic gives you impressive speed, great still images, high-quality 1080i HD video and a 5x optical zoom. The Lumix DMC-FX700 is one sleek camera, but you really pay for it because of its high price.The...

The gap between still cameras and video cameras is getting narrower every year. If you look at the specification of high-end compact cameras from the middle of 2008, most of them offered at best 640 x 480 resolution video with mono audio. Over the...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC FX700 ticks a lot of the right boxes, but I don't think picture quality matches up to the features on offer. That is a shame as the combination of basic manual controls, plus a touch screen interface is very appealing. Test...

If you are looking to take your photography a step further from using a basic compact but still want a small camera to fit in your pocket, then the Panasonic DMC-FX700 would be a good camera to move onto. You have some of the benefits that an SLR...

For those looking for a powerful touchscreen equipped digicam, Panasonic has produced the Lumix DMC-FX700. This model shares very similar specifications with the DMC-FX75 we reviewed earlier this summer, however they've added a few improvements,...

Pros: Lots of shooting options available, Image quality is very good; extremely sharp photos, Very little shutter lag, regardless of shooting conditions, Full manual mode is available, Camera is well built and feels sturdy

Die Hersteller statten ihre Digitalkameras mit immer mehr Funktionen und technischen Finessen aus. Die Panasonic DMC-FX700 lässt sich fast komplett am berührungsempfindlichen Bildschirm steuern. Warum das nicht unbedingt von Vorteil ist, lesen...

International Review By Bild & Ljud Hemma on 67

Pekskärmen på FX700 fungerar som den ska, fast det är hopplöst att se vad den visar i solljus. Kameran är däremot snabb, enkel att sköta och levererar en utmärkt bildkvalitet i de flesta fall, under förutsättning...

Die Panasonic FX700 bietet eine schnelle Betriebsgeschwindigkeit, eine gute Verarbeitung und vor allem eine deutlich überdurchschnittliche Ausstattung. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass der erfahrene Hersteller angesichts dieses Anspruchs bei der...

Pekeskjermen på FX700 fungerer etter hensikten, det kan man ikke si om lesbarheten som blir håpløs i sollys. Men kameraet er kjapt, lett å bruke og vil i de aller fleste tilfellene levere utmerket bildekvalitet, så lenge man har...

Zu schwacher Dynamikumfang, zu starkes ISO-400-Rauschen, um in diesem Testfeld ganz vorne mit dabei zu sein. Trotzdem: eine solide Weitwinkelkamera mit attraktiver...
