Panasonic FX55 Reviews and Samples

First published on: Wednesday, 19 September 2007

Compiled here are links to Panasonic FX55 professional and user reviews, image samples and other resources.

The Panasonic DMC-FX55 has been described as being closer in dimensions to the Panasonic FX01 than the FX50, and that’s good news for those looking for a pocketable digital camera with wide angle capabilities. Like all the other Lumix models in this range, the ability to shoot 28mm at the wide angle is the main draw.

Bob’s Panasonic FX55 gallery

This is one of the first user photos from the FX55 to be posted online. The photos are severely reduced in size for viewing, so remember to click the download link for each individual photo to get the 1600 x 1200 pixel version. I think this image is particularly good. Bob shares his thoughts on the camera in this thread. He bought his camera off eBay.

FX55 Reviews

Panasonic DMC-FX55 review at PhotographyBlog

Mark’s generally enthusiastic about the FX55 in the conclusion, and it’s good to know that the camera handles low light autofocus brilliantly, and is speedy in operation. The FX55 receives a rating of 4/5 in the conclusion.

Mark’s also made available a sample FX55 gallery where you’ll also find, at the bottom, a link to a 22-second, 30 MB video clip made with the camera.

Videos of the FX55

Here’s a nice one on YouTube — at the end of the 28-second clip, you get to see how fast the lens retracts into the camera body — neat!
