Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 vs Fujifilm Finepix FD100fd

By MentorRon
Here are 100% crops taken at ISO800, both cameras side-by-side. Shutter speeds and apertures the same. The smaller CCD'd (1/2.33") Lumix held up quite well to the larger CCD (1/1.6") of the F100fd, so I guess the Lumix can become my walk-about camera after all (had my doubts). When viewed at Full Screen size, the only difference (to me) was the wider angle of view with the Lumix: 25mm vs 28mm, and a slightly different exposure result using same settings on both cameras. The Lumix was a shade brighter, most noticeable in the shadow areas. A well spent $15 Cdn. Wink

Dunno but none of them would do me. Guess you have to go over the settings again, there is no detail in the midtones on the right and the left one lacks sharpness

The F100fd took all my photos in Europe that are in my portfolio here, about 3,000 or more of them. I was happy that a $7 used pocket camera from 2009 could do so well. So I decided to SPLURGE another $15 on the LUMIX, also from 2009 (when there were fewer MP).
I have NO intention of spending $$$ to get what a 1" CMOS could get, as I have a Nikon P7800 with a CCD the same size as the Fuji (but sharper), but it is much too big for me now, and a better zoom camera would be even larger, and more expensive. I have to compare oranges to oranges. Everyone else I know makes do with cellphones. I am the ONLY one with a camera any more. I have checked the reviews of more current pocketable zoom cameras, such as the Canon ELPHs, and don't like their test result images at all (also assuming someone would donate them free to a thrift store Wink
The Lumix and the Fuji are exactly the same size and fit my tiny carry case perfectly, so no more $$ need be spent on that either Wink

Even if I could afford something like an RX100 (they aren't in thrift stores yet: has to cost under $20), it is still too big to carry about daily (for me).

RX100 size and weight:..................DMC-ZR1/ZX1:..............Finepix F100fd:
Weight 301 g (10.6 oz)..................138 g....(4.8 oz) .............170 g....(6.0 oz)
Width 101.6 mm (4").......................97.8 mm (3.8")...............97.7 mm (3.8")
Height 58.1 mm (2.28")..................54.6 mm (2.15").............58.9 mm (2.3")
Depth 42.8 mm (1.68")...................26.0 mm (1.02")..............23.4 mm (0.9")
..
So the Lumix is lighter, which I prefer, (less than 1/2 the weight of the Sony)
and dimensionally equivalent to the Fuji (fits in same case).
