Hi Bros,

Any one bought the FX-520 yet? I'm looking for a digicam as replacement to my old Ixus 700. My requirements for the new camera:
- Can take decent night shots
- Wide Angle Lens
- Decent zoom range (4X and above)

Actually, I'm comparing these models:
1) Panasonic Lumix FX-520
2) Panasonic Lumix TZ-15
3) Canon Ixus 860IS
3) Fujifilm FinePix F100fd (read in forums that this model CMI, any comments?)

Would appreciate if someone can advise me on the options available. Thanks!

Hi,

I did some checks around, but realised that it's not in SG yet :(
If any kind soul has gotten a piece directly from Japan, please feedback... Thanks!

I'm so getting it...funny..I said the exact same line for the Fujifilm F100fd, but when it's here it disappoints me with the pink band...hope the FX520 does NOT do the same...

Wonder if it will be like the TZ5-> TZ15 case, whereby the FX520 will be known as FX500 here...

Yeah I was so close to getting the F100fd, when I realised that it underexposes most of the shots I tried. Further reading up on the net revealed the pink banding issue as well. Well, hopefully the FX520 performs as well as it's specs sheet!

It will be known as FX520 here: http://www.panasonic.com.sg/web/Pid/5360 ;)

I have been looking for it around town in Singapore since a month ago, but no one knows when it will be released. Some even didnt know what it was - (this from a reputable camera shop). And i missed getting it for my wife's birthday. I cant believe its already available in Malaysia. so i may just go get it there or order it thru the internet.

Ordered mine from the US and arrived today. Then I saw it this evening at Cathay Photo (MS). The guy quoted me SGD580.00 which I think is a pretty good price.

Haha

I guess in your eagerness, you missed that I wrote Cathay Photo (MS for Marina Square) and saw MS Colour instead.

Anyway, it's a very feature-packed cam. Some very cool features especially the focus tracking using the touch screen. :)

On a side-note fellows, is it acceptable of me, IF I've no intention of purchasing a camera @ that point in time, to pop into 1 of the local cam shops to request for a particular model to get its physical look & feel?

Will the staff be dissed/irritated? If it's inappropriate, then may I know where u fellows get a feel/sense of the cam b4 purchasing? I doubt if many will just commit to a counter pirvase after a few online reviews & recommendations?

Which shops frown upon this?

Perhaps you can visit Best/Courts to feel the camera since there would be display set on the camera section. :)
