  • Video recording mode isn't that bad


  • Unimpressive image quality in our test shots, interface was difficult to master

Bottom Line

While Panasonic boasts that this camera has superior optics and great performance, our tests of its Lumix DMC-FP3 revealed it to be an uninspiring digital camera that was a pain to use. It's modern styling hides its lacklustre features, poor menu design and below par image performance.
