Panasonic DMW-LVF1 clip-on viewfinder

Accessory of the Week Yes, you can argue that compact cameras, especially premium ones, should have a viewfinder built in. But the fact is, they don't, and while manufacturers are so keen to pitch LCD sizes and resolutions, it seems unlikely that they will anytime soon. Heck, even many compact system cameras lack a viewfinder. Yet there are plenty …

Panasonic updates exchangeable-lens compact

A year and a bit after Panasonic released its first Micro Four Thirds ultra-compact, out comes its successor. Well, sort of - it doesn't go on sale until January 2011. Side-by-side comparison of the new Lumix DMC-GF2's specs with those of the GF1 show very little has changed: the new model does 1080i HD video capture and that' …

Panasonic DMC-G2 interchangeable lens camera

Review The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is another addition to the growing Micro Four Thirds family of cameras. I think we know the drill now; cuter form factor for a traditional interchangeable lens system, similar features to a DSLR but no reflex mirror, and a bit more discreet. Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 Touch and go: Panasonic's Lumix …

Panasonic Lumix LX3

Review With its all-metal body and rangefinder styling, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX3 makes a definite impression. Unlike the other cameras on test, its lens sits about 2cm proud of the body, making this the least pocketable camera here with the hulking exception of the Canon G11. Panasonic Lumix LX3 The layout is traditional, with a …

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ6

Review Panasonic’s DMC-TZ6 could be considered the little brother or, if you want to be a little less charitable, a stripped-down version of the DMC-TZ7 we looked at in August. Both models are super-zoom compacts or Travel-cams, designed for the person who wants a big optical zoom in a pocket-sized camera. The DMC-TZ6 is around £60 …

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7

Review Panasonic’s DMC-TZ7 has been around for a while now, although the company maintains it in its current range. It's not surprising, because it’s one of the few compact super-zooms on the market that includes HD recording – its closest rival is Canon’s PowerShot SX200 IS.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7

Review The sub-£200 digital camera market is a cutthroat sector with big-name - and not so big name - companies launching a plethora of models that offer an impressive range of features and an even more impressive performance.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 12Mp µ4/3s camera

Review You know the saying: if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck. Well, Panasonic’s DMC-G1 looks like a digital SLR, has interchangeable lenses like a DSLR – but it isn’t a DLSR. No sir, the G1 ushers in a new generation of cameras designed to blast a hole right through the middle of …

The 12.1Mp Lumix DMC-TS1 can capture video and stills from a depth of up to 3m, but you’ll have to pluck it out and dry it off after 60 minutes. If you’re more into rock …
