  • Video recording mode isn't that bad


  • Unimpressive image quality in our test shots, interface was difficult to master

Bottom Line

While Panasonic boasts that this camera has superior optics and great performance, our tests of its Lumix DMC-FP3 revealed it to be an uninspiring digital camera that was a pain to use. It's modern styling hides its lacklustre features, poor menu design and below par image performance.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
