Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25 - Digital camera - compact - 16.1 MP - 8 x optical zoom - black
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25 - Digital camera - compact - 16.1 Mpix - 8 x optical zoom - Leica - black The DMC-FH25 features a wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom into a slim, compact body. Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body, yet achieving exceptional optical performance. The DMC-FH25 features a powerful 8x optical zoom lens. This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact, pocket-sized body can easily go wherever you do - for both everyday snapshots and traveling. The DMC-FH25 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 can also record standard motion images in VGA and QVGA.
- Powerful 8x optical zoom
The DMC-FH25 features a powerful 8x optical zoom lens. This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact, pocket-sized body can easily go wherever you do - for both everyday snapshots and traveling.
- Wide-angle lens
The 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.
- 10x intelligent zoom/18x extra optical zoom
1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom means the 8x optical can virtually extend to 10x equivalent. Furthermore, the extra optical zoom function that extends zoom power to 18x by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.
- Venus engine VI
The high-speed, high-performance Venus engine VI is incorporated in the DMC-FH25 to enable the recording of beautiful images with higher quality signal processing including the Intelligent Resolution technology. An advanced noise reduction system in the Venus engine VI applies noise reduction (NR) to luminance noise and chromatic noise separately. As a result, beautiful images with minimal noise can be reproduced all the way up to ISO1600 high sensitivity at full resolution for beautiful night shots or dimly lit indoor shots.
- Sonic Speed AF
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. You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.
- iA (Intelligent Auto) mode
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. You just choose the iA mode, aim at your subject, and shoot. 6 detection and correction functions are simultaneously activated to optimize the settings, so you get stunning photos every time.
- MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) - shake detection
The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) in the DMC-FH25 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. The Venus engine VI controls the shifting of the blur-stopping lens with even greater precision to further increase the detection accuracy and correction effect of MEGA O.I.S. It works for zoom shots and macro shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake, and lets you shoot in dimly lit rooms or evening illumination to preserve the mood. In short, it lets anybody take beautiful, blur-free shots with ease.
- AF tracking - subject detection
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 AF tracking makes sure you don't miss those once-in-a-lifetime shooting opportunities.
- Face detection AF/AE
The face detection AF/AE function detects faces and 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, and keeps faces from appearing dark when shooting indoors or against the light source. It detects up to 15 faces at a time, making it extremely convenient for group photos. Once the camera detects a face, Face Tracking follows it even when the subject moves around. Plus, the system keeps on detection if a face turns sideways to the camera.
- HD movie recording
The DMC-FH25 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 can also record standard motion images in VGA and QVGA.
- Scene mode
The scene mode lets the camera make the optimal settings for you automatically, so anybody can take superb photos with ease. The versatile scene mode range, which handles just about any situation and subject type, is a major Lumix feature. And to make it even simpler to use, the icons and display are designed for easy visibility. The DMC-FH25 lets you store a frequently used scene mode setting in the My Scene mode.
