Editor's Review

A 10.1-megapixel compact with an impressive tech package, the Panasonic Lumix FX500 is sure to please gadget enthusiasts in need of a solid snapshooter. The FX500's biggest draws are its 25mm wide angle 5x zoom lens and its hybrid control, which features a combination of touch screen and joystick functionality. Also included is Panasonic's now standard Intelligent Auto mode, which takes control of several functions to analyze a scene and render the best exposure possible, all on the fly. For budding videographers, it offers 720p HD output.

great little camera (paul johnson — 09/12/2009)

bought the camera to get something compact. it's kind of clunky and a bit heavy for a shirt pocket. but, it has that heft and quality feel of a leica. love the 25mm lens. @3mp it has 8.9 optical zoom. no problems so far. used it far more than my lumix fz28.
