The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links. Take 20 panning shots and the camera automatically selects the two most suitable images - one for the right eye and one for the left eye - to synthesize a 3D composite. The 3D image can be viewed on any compatible MPO format 3D HDTV with optional 3D glasses. LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT, 5x Optical Zoom Focal Length - f = 4.3 - 21.5mm (24 - 120mm in 35mm equivalent).

From the Manufacturer

Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-FX90 adds Wi-Fi connectivity (802.11 b/g/n) to a high-performing and feature-rich model that boasts a 24mm ultra-wide LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens with F2.5 brightness. With the addition of the Wi-Fi connectivity, the LUMIX FX90 addresses the growing communities of people who take photos and videos and want to share them instantly via online social networks.

You can also use the FX90 with Panasonic's LUMIX CLUB, a cloud-based service that is accessible via a smartphone and a computer browser that allows consumers to upload photos taken with the LUMIX FX90 to the following social networks: Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or YouTube. Photos can even be shared with these sites simultaneously, making it easy and quick. Additionally, once a LUMIX CLUB account is acquired, Panasonic will also provide a free, dedicated application called “LUMIX LINK”, which will be compatible with iPhone and Android™OS smartphones, thus consumers can instantly share photos by connecting the LUMIX FX90 just once to their compatible smartphone and then using the carrier network to share photos online. After the initial set-up, sharing photos will be as simple as using the LUMIX LINK application on the smartphone.

Using the LUMIX LINK application, users can enter and store all their social network account information and will not have to log-in to individual sites after the initial set-up. At home, users can directly upload the images to the social networks via the access point of a home router or a wireless connection. To make accessing Wi-Fi even easier, the LUMIX FX90 has a convenient dedicated Wi-Fi button that when pressed, directly opens a Wi-Fi Connection mode outside home and gets WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) connection at home. The Wi-Fi module is located on the opposite side of the grip so as not to interfere with the connection signal.

In addition to its Wi-Fi connectivity features, the LUMIX FX90 is an outstanding digital camera complete with a stylish design and sleek body. With an ultra-wide-angle Leica lens complete with a 5x optical zoom (available also in video recording) and an F2.5 brightness, the LUMIX FX90 excels in a variety of shooting environments. Whether taking a photo of a landscape, or capturing moving subjects even in low-lit situations – the LUMIX FX90's outstanding lens will take the photo brightly and crisply.

The LUMIX FX90 also features a 3.0-inch 460,000-dot LCD with Smart Touch, meaning all controls can be made by intuitively touching the screen. Touch operations while recording, include: Touch AF, Touch Zoom or Touch Shutter. And during playback, the Smart Touch feature can be used with the Beauty Retouch and Art Retouch modes. In addition, functions and settings used most often, such as O.I.S., AF point and white balance, can easily be customized to the user and accessed via the shortcut setting by dragging the icon to the main menu.

The LUMIX FX90's outstanding performance is powered by a 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD sensor and is compatible with high-speed, large-capacity signal processing required for 1920 x 1080 60i (sensor output 30p) full-HD video recording in the AVCHD format. Videos can also be recorded in MPEG4 format to easily playback on a computer and other portable electronic devices. To complement its high-quality video capabilities, the LUMIX FX90 also includes Dolby Digital Creator to record high quality audio. The Venus Engine powers the Sonic Speed AF, enabling extremely fast start-up times, making the LUMIX FX90 not only a powerful digital camera, but a speedy one, too. Also, the Venus Engine also provides precisely selective noise reduction to the chromatic noise without affecting the border of colors, so images are naturally clear and crisp in both photo and video recording.

Like all of Panasonic's digital cameras, the LUMIX FX90 features Intelligent Auto. When in iA mode, the LUMIX FX90 automatically chooses the best setting based on the shooting environment and features include: Active Mode in MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization), Motion Deblur, Face Recognition, Face Detection, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control and Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure. Even when shooting video, the LUMIX FX90 enables the following features when in iA: AF Tracking, MEGA O.I.S., Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure – all available to help take clear videos worthy of sharing with friends and family.

Access to the LUMIX CLUB is expected, be available on September 5, 2011 and will allow consumers to easily share their images on Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or YouTube. In addition the LUMIX LINK applications for iPhone and Android OS smartphones will be also available. The LUMIX CLUB site will available in six languages: English, Italian, German, French, Spanish and Japanese. In the future, LUMIX CLUB plans to add the following features:

  • A storage service so photos can be uploaded to an album that resides in the cloud-based networks and then viewed from smartphones, and Internet-enabled Panasonic VIERA HDTVS and Blu-ray Disc players
  • An intuitive user interface with a Timeline function that has a drag-and-drop feature
  • A photo sharing album function that will allow users who attended the same event, such as a wedding or party, to exchange and comment on photos and videos

I was looking for a decent digital point-and-shoot with wi-fi capabilities, because frankly, I never seem to get around to wiring up my old P&S and downloading all the pictures and videos, than uploading them to Flickr, Facebook, or youtube. I wanted a camera better than the one on my cel phone, but with the ease of uploading my cel gave me. Unfortunately, the Lumix misses the mark on all those requirements.

The camera takes ok pictures. Better than my cel phone, but not as good as my older Canon Rebel P&S. It's terribly slow to capture a photo in the slightest low light. I mean, in a well-lit room where it needs flash, it can't seem to find focus in less than 2 or 3 seconds. Pretty much pointless for any kind of action, like kids moving.

But the worst thing about this $300 waste of money is the wifi. The software is terrible. The setup is so far from intuitive, I felt like I needed training in linux programming just to get the thing to talk to my wireless router. Then when I did get it set up, I realized you have to upload everything through the Lumix website. All well and good, if it worked reliably. But it doesn't. Sometimes the website is down. Sometimes it will talk to Facebook or Youtube and sometimes it won't. Sometimes, the remembered password works, and sometimes it says it can't connect.

Worse yet, the movies that you shoot with the camera can't be uploaded wirelessly and they're locked down on the card, so I can't even move them manually through my card reader. The intructions are so poorly written that I still haven't figured out how to download some of the longer videos from the camera. I sent several requests to Lumix for assistance and have received nothing but automated responses saying someone would be back to me soon.

I bought it for my wife because it is supposed to upload photos to Facebook via Wi-fi. It wouldn't connect to the Wi-fi in the store, but we wanted to try at home.....wouldn't work there either....finally gave up, and bought a different brand, which worked very well, and was more user friendly.
No doubt a good camera.....just didn't work for us.

Have had this for about a week now and think it is a great point and shoot camera. It has a ton of extra features, not all of which I will use, that seem to be very easy to use. For the price I feel like this camera is a great deal for a high quality point and shoot.
