Value and Verdict

Panasonic Lumix FX77 review – Value

Panasonic FX77 image sample smallThe FX77 has already fallen by around £40 from its £250 RRP, and once it drops below the £200 mark it should be one of the more tempting lifestyle compacts on the market. Although it lacks some of the more interesting features seen on competing models, much of what it does offer is designed to simplify image taking for the less experienced shooter. This, coupled with its stylish, well-built body, makes it a decent proposition for younger, less experienced users, who are interested in point-and-shoot simplicty.

Panasonic Lumix FX77 review – Verdict

There’s plenty to like about the FX77, from its large and responsive touchscreen and decent focusing performance through to its reasonable image quality. It’s a pity images aren’t a little more detailed, but with regards to reliability and performance this is a winning compact.
