what do you think about Panasonic FX7?
I read very few opinions about it....someone report battery problem.

Thanks

I wonder why there is not more interest in this camera, which (along with the other FX models) boasts the only (?) optical image stabilization for an ultra compact camera???? Have you even found a formal review on it?

Based on the specs, it seems like a great camera. And, given how everyone loves the FZ series, I'd be surprised if this camera didn't take great pics.

I choose the silver one because the black one (I prefer) wasn't in stock.
It will arrive next thursday...I will post my impression.
However it is my first digital camera (I've always used a leica CM)...and you konw...

My new fx7 silver is arrived!
It's very small and cool and, in my opinion, it makes great pics.
It's my first digit so I'm not so expert.
I've made some photos:

Just one problem: the battery. You need a second one if you make a lot of pics!!

I was all set to purchase this camera, but then saw some disappointing reviews, if I recall with the PC magazine people and maybe one other, saying that in spite of the Leica lens, picture quality was not typical of 5 mp cameras.

As far as an extra battery goes - I have found that rather than an extra battery it is better to carry around an extra camera.

Why dont you wait for the Jeff review? He has already got this tiny DC...besides, as far as I know the Sony TC-1 its closer competitor has a bad quality image (like Camcorder) and a very weak flash. You can also check the more than 300 hundred photos posted on pbase.com...most of them are great.
