Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500

We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500. This demonstrates the FX500’s design, coverage, image stabilisation, touch-screen and menu system.

There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points

25mm wide angle, 5x range and stabilisation.
Full manual control.
Touch screen with sensible operation.
HD video recording but no zoom.

Bad points
Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO.
Flagship model, but no RAW files.
HD movies still no match for a camcorder.
TZ5’s 10x zoom tempting at same or lower price.
