Hi there

My old Fujifilm Finepix digitalis about to bite the dustand it's time for a newmodel. I've done my research and I think the Panasonic Lumix FX01is the one for me.

I liked the Fuji software for transferring from camera to laptop and keeping photos date labelled and in obvious folders. I also liked the slideshow feature.

What software do you get with the Panasonic DMC FX01? How does it work and archive photos?

I've decided this isn't really a 'wot camera' question so apologies...may post elsewhere too!

I actually don't use any of the Pany software (Fz5) I take my SD card and put it in a cheap card reader and use download to my PC. I like how it organizes and has excellant edit capabilities as well as slideshow and its free.

Using a card reader instead of plugging the camera in certainly saves wear and tear on the camera and it safer and faster.

For more involved editing I use Photoshop Elements. The other program usually bundled is the panoramer maker. Ifind Autostitch to be a much more powerful tool thgan the Pany one.

I therefore deleted all panasonic software from my PC.

I am assuming fx01 is bundled with the same software as my FZ5 was.
