Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700
Size, shape and image quality
PASM exposure modes, Fast burst shooting modes, Excellent battery life, 24mm super-wide angle.
Lightweight & portable, Speedy shooting, Responsive touch screen, Excellent image/video quality, 1080i HD video
F2.2 ultrawide-angle lens; 1080i movie capture; fast performance; compact for its features.
Looks great, White-balance performance, Advanced functions such as aperture priority, shutter priority and manual
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
Annoying touchscreen and manual restrictions
Less than sparkling image quality, Touch icons small and cramped, Physical switch for rec/playback mode, Erratic continuous shooting performance.
Mediocre LCD image quality, Expensive
Disappointing low-light/high-ISO photos; smallish low-res touch screen; no raw capture.
Menu structure can be a little confusing, Touch screen takes a little practice to use correctly, Bigger LCD would be better with touch screen LCD, Slightly larger zoom lens would be handy

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,...80

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...81
