Panasonic Lumix FS37 Review – Verdict

For its £150 price the FS37 combines a useful
zoom range with respectable image quality, and the touch-shooting
function makes light work of picking out the appropriate subject. It’s a
shame that the rest of the display-oriented performance falls behind,
notably the narrow viewing angle and the awkwardness of its menu system.
