Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 review

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX35 was introduced at the beginning of this year and has been on the market for a while now. The camera belongs to the FX-series of cameras that has been available on the market for many generations. It is striking to see how Panasonic have continued to build up the LUMIX compact camera line at considerable speed, and it seems this progress is far from over. The market segment is growing considerably and this year, for the first time, Panasonic was able to get a number 1 ranking in five European countries. This does not suprise me to be honest, while the clearly rising line cannot escape the consumer and trade market’s attention.

As far as the 10 Megapixels of resolution are concerned, the Panasonic LUMIX FX35 belongs to the top of the camera market. There are some erratic samples of 14 Megapixels, although they are rare and thankfully remain an exception. The feedback Panasonic must have received from the media and from consumer’s views, must have been unmistakably clear: stop the Megapixel race. The demand will not only concern Panasonic; the entire compact camera industry has to draw a line somewhere soon, and focus on quality of the pixel rather than the amount.

The front side of the camera is almost entirely flat, since the 4x optical zoom lens lies entirely sunken into the housing. A slightly raised edge gives away the presence of the lens, a truly smart design. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 featurs a built-in flash that is placed to the left of the lens. On the right side, a small LED functions as indicator for the self-timer or as AF assist lamp. The optical lens is a wide angle zoom lens with 4x range, the equivalent of 25-100mm which is a first-class luxury. In particular indoors the wide angle will offer a lot of convenience, and the same goes for panning.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 review
When you hold the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX35 for the first time, you will immediately notice the solid build of the housing. Despite the compact size and the low weight, the camera lies perfectly in your hand. It has a beautiful finishing touch to it, which gives the camera a luxurous appearance without it becoming a ‘’bling-bling’’ camera. The design is beautiful with nicely finished buttons that have a solid feel to them. The size of the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX35 allows for taking it with you wherever you go, it easily fits into your trouser or shirt pocket, giving you no excuse to leave the camera at home.
