'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. '
'The standard range of metering controls (multi-area, center-weighted, spot) are available for more involved metering tasks, but the Cyber-shot was accurate enough in this regard that I rarely felt the need to step outside of the default multi-area setting'
'battery life is low, but it's uncomfortably small for frequent use.'
'The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 couples a 8.1 megapixel sensor to a Zeiss-branded 5x optical zoom and a generous 2.7" LCD display'
'I was able to capture 10 full resolution (8M) images in 4.2 seconds, about
2.3fps, which soared by Sony's claim of 1.6fps.'
