The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FP1 takes the features you'd expect from a much larger camera and crams them into a sleek, stylish, and vaguely futuristic design. Thanks to the FP1's folded optics technology it is able to cram a 4x Optical Zoom LUMIX DC lens into its slim, flat body, providing focal lengths of 34-140mm (35mm equivalent) and offering great versatility. The 12.1 megapixel CCD sensor records all your shots in great detail and is also capable of recording 1280 x 720 HD video at 30 fps in Motion JPEG format. The 2.7 inch rear LCD screen makes composition simple and showing off your images and videos a breeze. Technological tweaks have improved the start-up time and increased autofocus speed, and helpful shooting modes such as Intelligent Auto and Scene Selector are also included to make picture taking as easy as possible, making the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FP1 a great choice for any discerning yet budget conscious photographer.
LUMIX DMC-FP1 main features
Futuristic, Flat Design with Folded Optics Technology and 4x Optical Zoom LUMIX DC Lens
The DMC-FP1 features a 4x optical zoom LUMIX DC VARIO lens (35mm camera equivalent: 35-140mm). The folded optics technology makes it possible to fit the high performance lens in futuristic, flat body. The lens cover can be opened and closed with the touch of a finger, and also serves as a power switch. The Extra Optical Zoom function uses the centre part of the CCD to extend this 4x zoom ratio to powerful 7.8x zoom at a resolution of 3-megapixels or less.
iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode with Advanced Scene Detection
In iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, 4 detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. The iA Mode includes MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to detect hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to detect faces in the frame and Intelligent Scene Selector to detect scene conditions. Sunset Mode has been added to the Intelligent Scene Selector.
Seamless Operation with Quick Start-up Time and Sonic Speed AF
To realize the Sonic Speed AF, a number of re-engineering and improvements are made including the adaptation of higher-speed actuator, the optimization of algorithms and the parallelization of software processing element. The result is ultra high speed yet accurate AF performance for you to enjoy. Panasonic also replaced its linear program processing with parallel processing to achieve an ultra high-speed start-up time.
HD Movie Recording (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG Format)
The DMC-FP1 can record motion pictures in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-picture recording even in low-light settings. The DMC-FP1 can also record stunning full-size motion pictures in WVGA (848 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) or standard motion pictures in VGA (640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels at 30 fps).
2.7-inch 230,000-dot High-resolution Intelligent LCD
The DMC-FP1's large 2.7-inch LCD features high 230,000-dot resolution Intelligent LCD. It automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. This LCD provides sharp, clear images in virtually all shooting situations, ranging from nighttime to bright daylight scenes. In addition, the High-angle Mode makes the display extremely easy to view from a low angle, for example, when taking photos by raising your hand upward to capture the subject over the crowd.
