If you ever wondered what camera was the milestone that brought a touch screen user interface to the market, then it’s time to know that Panasonic’s 2008 flagship, Lumix FX 500, put the touch screen interface into high end 2009 digital cameras. A year has gone by since then. Therefore, Panasonic released the Lumix FX 500 predecessor, the Lumix FX 580. Just like its successor, the FX 580 brings excellent features into a great metallic body.

If you are looking to see differences between the old FX 500 and the new FX 580, don’t hold your breath. These two Panasonic cameras are identical on in terms of design and looks. However, the actual difference is in the hardware construction.

Panasonic Lumix FX 580 has a height of 2.25 inches (57.1 mm), wide of 3.74 inches (94.9 mm), deep of 0.86 inches (21.9 mm), FX 580 weight about 167 g (5.89 oz).

On the bottom of this Panasonic camera you can find the battery cover and the memory card port. Compared with other camera models, Canon Power Shot SD 970 “IS”, Sony Cyber Shot DSC T900, and Samsung HZ15W, the FX 580 is the lightest of them all. The overall design of the FX 580 is exceptional. The built quality is great, the camera is solid and doesn’t provide any strange noises when pressing it or holding it too hard.

Panasonic equipped FX 580 with a 2.7 inches touch screen LCD display, up to 230.000 pixels, and a maximum resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels. Basically this screen tries to offer the old features on new technology. Even so some features can only be controlled by using the touch screen. For example, for the camera to focus on a particularly place, you have to tap on the display the exact location where you want FX 580 to focus. This is a really nice feature, offering you the possibility to choose and customize your photos by just tapping the touch screen display. Also the 2.7 inches display offers seven adjustable levels of brightness.


The Lumix FX 580 comes with a 12.10 megapixel camera, with 12 effective megapixels. Also the camera sports a MEGA O.I.S optical image stabilizer, with 1 / 2.33 inch image sensor size, and an extra optical zoom of: 6.1x (4:3 / 8M), 7.8x (4:3 / 5M), 9.8x (< 3M), and a maximum optical zoom of 4x. The focal length is somewhat average, with f= 4.4 – 22.0 mm (25 – 125 mm in 35 mm equiv). the Vario Elmar lens provide pretty good hardware quality. The Lumix FX 580 saves the photos taken in JPEG format, and the motion picture in Quick Time Motion JPEG.

Depending on the aspect rotation (4:3, 3:2, 16:9 ~ for still images and 4:3, 16:9 ~ for the motion images) you can take pictures in different resolutions, such as: 640 x 480 pixels (0.3 MP), 1600 x 1200 (2 MP), 2048 x 1536 (3 MP), 2560 x 1920 (5 MP), 3264 x 2448 (8 MP), 4000 x 3000 pixels (12 MP).

While in 16:9 aspect rotation you can record in WVGA mode with 848 x 480 pixels, with 30 frames per second.

This camera provides you with several photo editing options, like color effect mode (warm, sepia, cool, black, and white). Panasonic provided for the Lumix FX 580 average ISO sensitivity (Auto / 100 / 200 / 400 / 800 / 1600) and a focus with normal and macro modes beside the auto focus tracking. Another good feature is the built in memory of about 40 MB. However you don’t have to worry about lack of memory space with the memory card slot onboard the FX 580 (compatible with SDHC memory cards, SD memory card, and multimedia card).

The connectivity in ensured by two input and output ports, the AV port and the 2.0 USB port. When shooting pictures you will realize that FX 580 provides in general decent image noise. You might be somewhat annoyed only when taking pictures with sensitivity above 400. Panasonic included in Lumix FX 580 great playback options, and a good built in speaker for the ultimate playback experience. FX 580 comes with a Lithium Ion battery pack of 3.6 V or 940 mAh. This battery should last for at least 350 pictures (decent value compared with other cameras have to offer).


Panasonic provides in the shipping retail box, beside the camera and the battery pack, a stylus, the mandatory battery charger, AV cable, USB cable, Hand Strap, manual, Photo fun Studio 3.0 software, USB driver, Quick Time software, Arc Soft software (for photo editing). Overall the Lumix FX 580 stands out of the line because of its great design, good build quality, good shutter lag, and manual controls. However, FX 580 doesn’t offer the best balance between price and performances, placing the Panasonic point and shoot flagship on an average place. Even so, if you like the design and cost doesn’t really concern you then Lumix FX 580 is a great purchase. If you are looking for a better balance between performances and price then you should look at Canon Power Shot SD 780 (with a $215 price tag) or, even, Sony Cyber Shot T900 (with a price tag of $325). is a gadgets review with figures, graphics, photographs, images, videos, something else blog with users’ comments.
