Reviews of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX40 from around the web. »

After being favorably impressed with the FX35 some 16 months ago, I was ready for another "gee whiz" moment from the FX48.

Panasonic has added yet another "FX" series model to their ranks, with the Lumix DMC-FX48. Replacing the popular Lumix FX35 from last year, the FX48 is a light-weight, ultra-compact digicam that offers many high-end features, including Panasonic's legendary MEGA O.I.S. technology. While it shares many features with it's sibling, Panasonic has increased resolution to 12-megapixels, added a slightly more versatile zoom lens (5x compared to the FX35's 4x), along with an upgraded 11-pint AF system. The FX48 also boasts a 2.5-inch LCD, 720p HD video capture, 40MB of internal memory, 2.3fps burst mode, Intelligent Auto, Program, and 20 scene modes.
