PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC FX12 : Panasonic’s new DMC-FX12 digital still camera offers a wealth of features disproportionate to their ultra slim and stylish size. Featuring a superb optical 3x zoom (35-105mm, on a 35mm film camera equivalent) Leica DC lens with f/2.8 brightness, Panasonic’s ingenious anti blur systems - MEGA O.I.S and Intelligent ISO control - you have to look twice to believe these really are Panasonic’s entry level stylish compact models. The 7.2 megapixel DMC-FX12 features a bright f/2.8 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with 3x optical zoom. The high quality Leica DC lens carries on the proud tradition of its famous Leica brand, the German camera maker renowned for lenses that combine superb performance with compact size.
Panasonic DMC-FX12 - Zoom ratio
Comprising seven elements in six groups, including three lenses with three aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit matches Leica’s stringent standards and delivers an exceptional optical performance. The zoom ratio of the Lumix FX12 can be extended up to 4.5x in 3 megapixel resolution mode with minimal deterioration thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom. By using the central part of the CCD, this powerful zooming function allows you to easily capture and magnify distant subjects.

Panasonic FX12 - MEGA Optical Image Stabiliser
Jitter from handshake is far and away the biggest single cause of blurry shots. Lumix cameras help solve this problems with an advanced optical image stabilising system - Panasonic’s ingenious MEGA Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS). This system uses built-in gyrosensors to detect even tiny camera movement and then shifts a lens in the opposite direction to compensate, giving you sharp, clear images without deterioration.

Panasonic Lumix FX12 - Prevent blurry images
While hand-shake is the single biggest cause of blurry images, it is not the only one. Another problem is the motion blur that can occur when a subject moves as the shot is being taken - particularly common when taking pictures of sports or young children for example. In these conditions Intelligent ISO Control comes into its own. This system actually detects whether the subject is moving and, as necessary raises the ISO setting and shutter speed according to how fast the subject is moving and the light conditions. This happens automatically, so you can effortlessly shoot without the need to adjust the settings every time the conditions change. Panasonic Lumix now offers solutions for both major causes of blurred images - O.I.S when you are moving, and Intelligent ISO Control when the subject is moving. Thanks to Panasonic, you can now take clear and beautiful images in even the trickiest situations.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FX12 - ISO 1250
The DMC-FX12 features the Venus Engine III, Panasonic’s advanced image-processing engine that can record at a sensitivity setting as a high as ISO 1250 at full resolution. This engine features the type of technology you expect to find in a higher end camera, providing an exceptional level of functionality for cameras in this class.

Boasting an impressive 2.5inch large LCD monitor for comfortable viewing both while monitoring shots and playing back the results, the new Lumix FX12 is designed with flexibility in mind. Panasonic is the first manufacturer to offer the High Angle function on a digital still camera LCD. This new mode makes the FX12 LCD display extremely easy to view from below, for example, when holding the camera up high to take pictures over a crowd. The difficulties faced when shooting in bright outdoors situations are also overcome by the Power LCD function, which boosts the backlighting of the LCD by 40%. The Panasonic DMC-FX12 is also perfect for underwater photography, for use with the Marine case (available separately), thanks to the new ‘underwater’ mode.
