About this item

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 Digital Camera is a sleek impressively styled and elegantly finished compact camera that can be relied upon to capture your most special moments. It provides the outstanding performance of a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit wide-angle lens. The DMC-FX100 incorporates a 1/1.72-inch large CCD with 12.2-megapixel rich recording resolution.

This super-high resolution means that the FX100 captures the nuances of subjects such as delicate flower petals, subtle skin textures, or the complex hues of sunset with breathtaking clarity and detail. The 12.2-megapixel resolution also allows images to be printed up to poster sizes with spectacular results.

Similarly, it lets you trim an image - framing only the part that you like - and then magnify it and still get outstanding detail and resolution.

The DMC-FX100 is equipped with a 3.6x wide angle f/2.8 Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens (equivalent to 28mm - 100mm on a 35mm film camera), that also features an Intelligent Image Stabilizer based on Panasonics renowned MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer) and including Intelligent ISO control.

This impressive lens unit comprises seven elements in six groups, including an EA (extra-high refractive index aspherical) lens and four lenses with five aspherical surfaces to generate high optical performance.

Furthermore, the zoom ratio can be extended up to 7x in 3-megapixel resolution mode with minimal deterioration thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom. The FX100 also has an Easy Zoom feature that, at the touch of a button, shifts the lens instantly to full 3.6x zoom power. A second touch of the button activates the Extra Optical Zoom function and extends zoom all the way to 7x.

The Venus Engine III is Panasonic's advanced image-processing engine that supports a super-fast response time such as an impressively quick 0.009 second shutter release time, and a shutter interval as short as 0.9 seconds - outstanding for a camera recording at 12.2-megapixel resolution.

Additionally, the burst shooting mode boosts the capability of sequential shots to a rate of 2 frames per second at full resolution, or a High-Speed Burst shooting mode that can capture images at an incredible eight shots per second. You also get unlimited consecutive shooting - which allows you to take photos in succession up to the capacity of the memory card or built in memory.

The FX100 includes a high quality video mode that can record stunning wide aspect VGA (640 x 480) and WVGA (848 x 480) motion images at 30 frames per second, or wide-aspect HD (1280 x 720) motion images at 15 frames per second. This enables you to view them on a widescreen HDTV perfectly.
