I’ve been using one of these for a couple of weeks now.  Why you would buy?  (be aware you’d probably buy an FX60 now as this model is discontinued)


– It’s very small and truly fits in a shirt pocket.

– very wide angle lens 25mm and 5x optical zoom

– 10 Mega Pixels (more than enough)

– takes hd video. Although note you need a high speed SD card to take advantage of this. I’ve just ordered an SD Card type Class 10 to check this out.

– Great battery life

– Intelligent Auto Focus

– Panasonic/Leica Lens


– Images are rather noisey/compressed

– No manual control but typical of this type of compact camera.

– Stick to ISO100 for best results.
