The picture quality is very good.

I normally don't write product reviews, but this camera is outstanding. I have wanted to get into more serious photography but don't want to have to lug around an SLR everywhere I go. I'd rather have something I can take anywhere. May get an SLR at some point, but right now I really don't care.

My first digital cam was a Nikon Coolpix 880, which had great manual features and excellent imaging/color. Only problem was the 3.2mp resolution and the fact that I might as well carry around a brick. I bought a Canon SD450 and took it to Panama. I was really disappointed. Generally, Canon photos are sharp with great color. The camera had washed out colors and was susceptible to some serious blur. My friend and I agreed that our girlfriends' Canon A400's (possibly the best 3.2mp camera for novices) took much better photos than this one. Some of the photos actually looked as if they were taken on a video camera. The battery life was tolerable (about 140 pics) but I decided to take it back and get the Panasonic.

The DMC-FK01K takes the best digital photos I've seen outside SLRs. The colors captured by this camera will make your jaw drop. It's that good. I'm surprised at the number of photos I've taken which make me feel like a good photographer. The stabilization feature helps out a lot with blur, but it won't fix everything. The video taken with this thing is incredible and will give you almost 20 minutes of 840 pixel-wide resolution (albeit mono audio) video with great detail on a 2GB high-speed SD card. My friend bought one on the same day as me and told me his is taking some incredible photos in Las Vegas right now. Knowing how this camera does its job, I would have been willing to pay $450 for it.

Didn't really know what to expect given long term relationships with Canon and Sony. Also, some of the reviews were less-than-stellar on various websites so I entered into purchase with cautious optimism. Mind you, I am not a photographer, but I am always concerned with quality and wanted a camera that fits my point and shoot needs, but is capable of a little more seriousness if needed. I would use it for family vacations, family events and to shoot landscapes for email transmission at work. I purchased the camera on a Wednesday and our family left for vacation on the following Friday. That didn't leave me much time to become familiar with the camera before having to really rely on it. No problem. Out of the box the camera is fairly simple and easy to understand. If you've owned any digital camera before, you'll find navigation simple and straightforward. The screen on camera is awesome, large and bright and I found the menus to be logical. The camera seems a perfect weight as it is not too heavy, but has some heft to give it a solid feel. The black color is fantastic, it is very cool to look at. It is small and light enough to carry in a cargo short pocket without bogging you down. Just make sure you give the camera its own pocket so you don't risk scratching the LCD. The camera has a very quick response time when you power it on and you are instantly ready to shoot. At 6 MP it is almost overkill. I don't make large prints and if I shoot photos at 6MP, they seem so large they are cumbersome to email -many at a time. Regardless, when shooting at 6MP, my untrained eye sees magnificent photos. I'm sure real photog guys could find flaws, but to me none were apparent. Night shots, could pose some challenges, but again, I think unrealistic expectations are part of that.Read more ›

I got my FX01 recently from Amazon and have played with the camera for a few hours. I also own a Sony W5. The FX01 is a big step forward from the W5:

1) It is much smaller. In terms of volume, the FX01 is about half that of the W5.

2) The optical image stabilizer works, to some degree. I took pictures with both cameras, at about 1/15 speed; the picture from the FX01 is sharper.

3) Movies from the FX01 are steadier and easier on the eyes because of the image stabilizer.

4) The movie resolutions are more flexible: All three resolutions can be either 10fps or 30fps.

5) It uses the less expensive SD card.

6) It has a slightly wider angle lens (2.8), which comes handy when taking group pictures in a small room.

7) It has a bigger LCD (2.5”). However, unlike the W5, the FX01’s LCD protrudes out from the back; a screen protector film is definitely needed.

The only thing I don’t like about the FX01 is the proprietary battery. AA batteries won’t fit in the small body of the FX01. However, I purchased two compatible rechargeable batteries from a vendor at Ebay for only $7.99, which should provide ample power for most day trips.

Wow I love this little camera. Finally a 28mm (35mm equivelent) zoom lens in a really compact body. I've always kept 2 cameras - one little and portable, for quick shots and videos of the kids, and one large and bulky for high-quality, wide-angles, landscapes, architecture, and portraits. I think I'm finally ready to ditch everything in my camera drawer and consolidate on this little Panasonic. This camera addresses virtually every complaint I've had about my past 5 digital cameras.

Pros:

- wide angle lens in a very compact body

- very sharp and bright 2.5" screen - MUCH better than the Canon SD450

- great picts

- great videos

- very rapid response - quick turn-on, quick shutter, quick turn-off

- solid construction, feels good in the hand

- easy to use - buttons and menus are well thought-out and intuitive

- battery life is exceptional

- Anti-shake really seems to work

- surprisingly inexpensive - more bang for the buck compared to comparable models from Canon et al

Cons (I'm hard pressed to criticize this camera)

- lack of zoom ability during videos is annoying

- like most non-SLRs, it is basically impossible to attach filters to the lens (I like to occassionally use a polarizer, and my previous wide-angle camera, the Nikon 8400, also great but far bulkier, has threads that allow you to attach filters)
