Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37 - Test Shots: General



View All

At 28mm, the FS37 is able to fit plenty into the scene, although there’s a fair bit of haze

Zoomed in the full 8x on Normal Shooting mode and the cliff detail remains just about adequate

At 18x, the FS37 has done a rather good job of keeping things sharp

This wideangle shot of Trebarwith Strand is both vibrant and sharp, illustrating what the FS37 is capable of in good light

The shallow depth of field has created a nice effect here, with the FS37’s aggressive in-camera sharpening adding some added punch to the flower in the foreground

The FS37’s metering has been fooled into overexposing the reeds in the foreground in this garden scene

Where the light is fairly even the FS37 can produce rich and pleasing results, as it has with the green foliage here  

While the colours remain pleasantly natural, the lack of depth of field means the bluebells are slightly out of focus
