Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15

Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FS15 is a very good mid-priced point-and-shoot camera that’s particularly strong at taking close-ups.

The unit’s small, relatively thin, and light enough to carry in a shirt pocket, but it’s loaded with features including a 12 megapixel image sensor and a Leica 28-145mm lens.

The DMC-FS15 has a few shortcomings, including bothersome digital noise in shots taken at the far end of its ISO range and a zoom lens that tops out at 5X optical, but such limitations are to be expected from a camera with a street price well below $200.

The Lumix DMC-FS15’s dimensions put it squarely in the subcompact class. It measures 3.82 inches wide by 2.14 inches high by 0.85 inches deep, and it weighs 4.87 ounces with its battery and an SD memory card installed. (The camera accepts both SD and higher-capacity SD-HC media).
