The Panasonic FX90 is a highly competent, well-made camera with many strengths and a few weaknesses. It’s attractive with good build quality, though I have a few minor quibbles with its ergonomics, particularly its tiny zoom lever. It shoots quickly and focuses accurately. The camera has good image and movie quality and exhibits very little lens distortion. However, overexposure is a problem when glare is present.

The camera’s touch screen is nicely responsive, though Panasonic may want to consider revamping the interface so that fewer submenus need to be accessed for commonly used actions. The camera’s Wi-Fi works well and is an excellent addition to an already high quality camera.
