The Lumix DMC-FX550 represents a pleasant surprise in the field of compact digital cameras, since it's able to provide a very large number of features and customization options, despite looking just like an ordinary “point-and-shooter.” Hence, photographers, even beginners, won't have any problems taking good quality photos with this device, especially since the Intelligent Auto function can take care of business in a very OK manner (albeit choosing the right scene mode is highly recommended, especially since there are so many options).
Moreover, it is able to record videos at 720p resolution, allows users to attach a voice comment to photos and provides extensive playback options, as well as some in-camera editing features, albeit nothing really fancy.The Bad
To tell you the truth, we haven't been able to find anything really “bad” to say about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX550, apart from the usual shortcomings offered by most compact cameras, such as noise at higher ISO values and in low lighting. Yes, some might find the design a little “edgy,” while the relative small amount of internal memory is also somewhat of a minus.
Other minuses include the relatively poorly finished software menus, as well as the lack of 1080p recording capabilities, which has become somewhat of a must in most modern camcorders.Overall Impressions
After going through the main features the Lumix DMC-FX550 has to provide, we can say that this all-rounder is a great tool to have around for those people who want to be able to take quick, good quality photos wherever they might go and then share them with friends online.
Moreover, it also provides quite an extensive range of customization features for the available shooting options, thus having an even greater value on the long run (especially for those photographers curious enough to fiddle with its various settings).Sales package
