Panasonic Lumix FH5 Digital Camera Review
Unremarkable, but not bad, performance, but with nothing to really recommend it.
Another year, another big batch of pocket-sized point-and-shoots. Panasonic's FH series is perhaps best known for last year's FH20, one of the first sub-$200 cameras with an 8x zoom range. That line is also home to a handful of less-interesting, short-zoom point-and-shoots, like the FH5, on review here.
It's difficult for a camera like this to stand out among the dozens of nearly identical competitors with svelte designs, good-enough image quality, and light feature sets. We put the FH5 through our battery of tests to see if it has any tricks up its sleeve.
The FH5 is available at an MSRP of $169 in blue, red, black, and pink shades.
