'The ZR1 is shockingly small considering its lens specifications.'
'A few subtle features help the ZR1 rise above ho-hum status: an ultraquiet zoom lens that reaches to 25mm on the wide-angle end, lightning-fast autofocus in video mode, great image stabilization at high ISO levels and fast shutter speeds, and a few unique scene modes. '
'The build quality too is exceptional, with a very solid feel that's not permeated with flimsy plastic or cheap components â?? it's all metal here. '
'The White Balance control on the camera was very impressive.'
'It's great for shooting rooms, landscapes, and portraits, but it falls short in the telephoto department, making the Panasonic LX3 a difficult choice for an all-around camera, unless you're used to short to medium focal lengths.'
'In PCWorld Labs imaging tests, the Lumix DMC-FP8 produced good--but not great--results. '
'The minimal, flat fronted design and internally stacked/folded zoom lens mechanism of Panasonic's 12.1 effective megapixel Lumix DMC-FP8 may be a claimed bold departure for the electronics manufacturer's range of otherwise conventionally styled digital compacts. '
