After unveiling the Lumix DMC-FZ45 and the FT10, Panasonic has now expanded its range of digital cameras with the new Lumix DMC-FX700.
This digital camera features a 14.1 megapixel sensor, a 24mm ultra wide angle F2.2 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens complete with 5x digital zoom which Panasonic says makes the FX700 a perfect solution for low-light conditions and when taking pictures of moving objects. Additionally, it features a 3-inch touch screen LCD for all of your view finding and setting manipulation needs.
But that sure isn’t all, the FX700 also features an optical image stabilizer, making for reduced blur caused by things like shakey hands, and a whole plethora of technologies such as Face Recognition, Face Detection, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and AF Tracking.
While all of the above mentioned features are fine and dandy, the thing that really makes the Panasonic Lumix FX700 unique is its ability to capture full 1080p high definition video, exporting it to AVCHD format.
Other features of the Panasonic LUMIX FX700 include:
• Handheld Night Shot: Using the high-speed MOS sensor, this new mode shoots 10 consecutive shots to simulate and detect the perfect shot of any subject while simultaneously fixing the subject’s position. Through the MOS sensor’s short shutter speed, exposure is increased while noise is reduced to create a blurless, beautifully- illuminated night shot without the use of a tripod.
• Battery Life: The high-performance Venus Engine FHD is also highly energy efficient despite its high processing capabilities, extending the battery life up to 300 shots (CIPA) on a single charge.
The Panasonic LUMIX FX700 will be available in black in late-August for a suggested retail price of $399.95. For more information on Panasonic LUMIX digital camera models, please visit: www.panasonic.com/lumix.
