Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX38

Most camera companies come out with upgraded versions of a camera that initially became successful, to act as its successors in the camera market. Some of them actually turn out to be good and sell well in the market; others are caught in the web of comparisons, some of which are good others are often too exaggerated. But it is often not possible to maintain consistency when coming up with upgraded versions. Nevertheless Panasonic, the silent assassin of a camera maker, does come up with impressive compact camera models and their successors like the LUMIX DMC-FX38, which succeeds the FX36. This compact entry level camera comes with a resolution of 10.1mp and a zoom range of 5x.

Design and Functioning

As has been already said, the LUMIX DMC-FX38 looks much like its predecessor, the DMC-FX36. Like its little brother, the FX38 speaks of understated elegance in design and ergonomics that are made for the average entry level compact camera user. One of its most endearing features is the ultra wide angle lens, offering a zoom range of 5x and a focal range of 25mm to 125mm. Alongside the multitude of scene modes, which range from pinhole to portrait, is Panasonic's intelligent Auto function which purports to be adept at automatically choosing the best settings for the shooting conditions. Equipped with Panasonicís signatory LEICA DC Vario-Elmarit lens, this camera is also capable of Optically Stabilizing images with the companyís own OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) function which makes pictures immune to shake or blur. This camera contains internal memory of 50MB and is compatible with SD/SDHC as well as MultiMedia Card (MMC) for storage.
