The DMC-FX33 is aimed squarely at the point-and-shoot photographer and its automated features do a pretty good job. The IA mode was rarely fooled, although we noticed that when shooting under artificial light, a number of shots had comet trails streaming from the lights or displayed a yellow cast. This suggests that the DMC-FX33 had the wrong white balance or shutter speed setting, and wasn't fully engaging the image-stabilistion system.
