About this item

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FH27 Digital Camera (Red) is a complete digital camera image-making machine--it has an 8x Leica wide-angle 28-224mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens, a 16.1MP high-resolution CCD sensor and a 2.7" LCD monitor with 230K dots of resolution for composing and viewing photos and video.

And the video is beautiful--1280 x 720p HD video @ 24fps. The superb image stabilization combined with sensitivity up to ISO 6400 and Intelligent Resolution mean you'll never have to be disappointed about blurry pictures in low-light situations.

Scene modes (27) and color modes (8) give you confidence that your photos will be the best possible in any given situation and high-speed burst shooting at up to 4fps, in tandem with the Sonic Speed autofocus mean that you'll never have to miss a shot waiting for the camera to start up or to focus (shutter release time lag is as short as 0.005 second). And Intelligent Auto exposure will always pick the optimal settings, whatever the scene you're photographing. All of this (and much more) in a camera less than 4" long and barely 1" deep--you'll always have it with you.

Key Features

  • The DMC-FH27 features a newly developed 28mm wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-224mm) into a slim, compact body
  • The 28mm wide-angle lens lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances
  • The DMC-FH27 gives you smooth touch-control shooting. Your subject is instantly brought into auto focus by simply touching the image on the large, 3" 230,000-dot LCD
  • The touch-screen operation excels not only for shooting but also for playing back images with outstanding visibility. You can drag the image across the screen with a finger to browse a collection of photos as you flip over the pages of the book
  • Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-FH27 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even when combining a digital zoom
  • The high-speed, high-performance Venus Engine VI is incorporated to enable the recording of beautiful images with higher quality signal processing including the Intelligent Resolution technology
  • The Sonic Speed AF system includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance
  • The DMC-FH27 features a 1/2.33-inch CCD with effective 16.1-megapixel high-resolution. Images remain clear and sharp even when they are enlarged to A2 size (594 x 420 mm)
  • The image processing technology "Intelligent Resolution" is incorporated in Venus Engine VI for DMC-FH25. With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas are automatically detected and optimum signal processes are performed to each area
  • The graininess that results from picture noise and the flatness that sometimes comes with noise reduction measures are major concerns when shooting at high sensitivity levels. The Intelligent Resolution minimizes noise to produce sharp, clear images
  • The energy-saving Venus Engine VI image processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery - which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies - work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FH27
  • When you don't know which mode will give you the best shooting results, or when a sudden photo opportunity pops up and you don't have time to make any settings, simply choose the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode and let the camera do it all for you
  • The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second and compensated to produce sharp, clear images
  • Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus
  • The DMC-FH27 gives you a new form of communication by letting you share your photos and movies. All you have to do is checkmark the photos and movies you want to share and connect the camera or SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card to a computer
  • The Intelligent ISO Control function made possible by the Venus Engine VI detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions
  • The Face Detection AF/AE function detects faces & automatically optimizes the focus and exposure settings. It prevents the blurry faces that happen when the camera focuses on something in front of or behind the subject & keeps faces from appearing dark when shooting indoor or against light source
  • When the camera's in iA Mode, the Intelligent Scene Selector automatically sets the Scene Mode to one of Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait, Night Scenery or Sunset. The camera judges it from the various detection results such as focusing and brightness level of the circumstance
  • The Intelligent Exposure function increases the exposure only in under-exposed areas by detecting the brightness level part-by-part in the image
  • The DMC-FH27 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 24 fps in Motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings
  • The DMC-FH25 features a 3", 230,000-dot high-resolution Intelligent LCD and High-angle Mode
  • The Baby Mode and Pet Mode let you enter the date of birth and name of your subject in advance. You can also enter your destination and the date of travel in advance in the Travel Date setting
  • The PHOTOfunSTUDIO 6.0 makes it possible to sort and organize photos not only of those newly taken but also of those stored in your computer with quick start-up and fast read-in of images
  • Take photos even when you don't have an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card on hand. The built-in memory holds up to approx. 70MB of image data, which you can later copy to a memory card or computer
  • The PictBridge standard lets you print directly on a compatible digital printer. Print size, layout, date and other settings can be made with the camera. Of course, you can also make multiple prints of an image, or print only the ones that you have selected
