7.4 out of 10 (Very good)
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 is a very good ultracompact camera with a lot of shooting flexibility. It's just its slow performance that's keeping it from achieving excellence.”

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 - Review

Not a Dave's Pick
“With its above-average performance, including a very responsive shutter, the Panasonic FX500 is still fun to use and has a reasonably good shutter response. We also liked its 25-125mm equivalent lens, which delivers reasonably sharp images. Image quality is hampered by the overprocessing of flat areas that is easily absorbed by any screen when printing, and luminance noise softens the image at all ISO settings, making its maximum print size 11x14-inches at ISO 100.”
