I have just replaced my Fuji fine pix with another camera, and whilst buying my boyfriend bought himself a Lumix FS7 which I am now regretting not getting for myself. Always the way, but whenever I go shopping for something electrical, some guy in a suit always sways me towards something different. Which I should really learn from and just buy online, its usually cheaper anyway.
The Panasonic Lumix FS7 Digital camera comes in a range of different colours; it cost £130 which for a 10.1 Megapixel camera was pretty good and the deal we got meant that a free case came with it as well as an additional memory card. So there were no qualms on the price.
Typically of men, my boyfriend just switched the camera on and got going, without reading the instructions, however while he was playing, I read. The LCD screen is high resolution and when I compared it with my new camera which has a standard LCD screen the difference was clear
The Lumix FS7 is described as having long battery life, most electrical products nowadays do have efficient batteries, and there is no excuse for them to be poor anymore. However, with the Lumix FS7 the battery really was impressive, we spent a day playing around with it, so it was literally on all day, and we took loads of pictures and deleted loads and it wasn’t until a few more days of use later that we were warned the battery was low.
The camera is run from a battery pack, which comes with the camera and which can be replaced, I looked at the cost of a replacement, and if we needed one, we would be looking at about £20.
The camera comes with a charger so it is easy to charge and make sure that the batteries are topped up, the first charge we did took a matter of an hour to full charge the machine up. I understand that with time this will take longer and also that the battery will last less, but currently the battery and charger are so efficient that we are entirely impressed.
The camera is very small but this doesn’t make it any harder to handle, the camera comes with a wrist strap to stop it being dropped and smashed. I like it that although the camera is very compact it does not make it fiddly.
The Lumix has an iA button which is all you need to press to take a picture.
I spend a good half hour looking for different settings to apply to the camera, after reading the instructions I discovered that actually the camera settings are adjusted automatically. I was pretty impressed by this.
We did not take any pictures which were blurry, and the lighting on each picture was perfect. The lighting in my house is very dull and with my previous camera pictures were a yellowy colour when they came out, even with my new camera the pictures weren’t great when taken in my house, but the Lumix got it right every time.
Like most digital cameras, this camera also has red eye detection and removal which is always useful, there’s nothing like having a really lovely picture ruined by demon eyes.
The camera also has 4 x Optical zoom which is essential with cameras. My boyfriend is taking this on his holiday in a couple of weeks and zoom is always useful for capturing special moments.
With the Lumix the image is barely lost when the camera is zoomed and we were really impressed with how clear the pictures were when they came out.
As I have said, we bought this for £130, my camera that I bought was over £200 and although is a good camera I prefer the Lumix as it is far more easily used and I think the LCD and picture quality is brilliant.
Who’s it for
It also comes in a range of colours, so you can stay simple with black or silver, or if you’re like me and are feeling a bit girly you can get the pink one. I have decided that my new camera is too complicated for me and I would be much happier with a pink Lumix so I’m selling my current camera on eBay.
All in all I totally recommend the Lumix FS7 and I cannot tell you any disadvantages, it is precise, easy to use, very fashionable and at a really low priceHappy snapping
