PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC FZ4 introduction: Panasonic introduces a new Lumix digital still camera with 12x optical zoom and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer). The Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ4 offers 4.0 Megapixel resolution, respectively, and incorporate a newly developed 12x optical zoom equivalent to 35mm to 420mm on a 35mm film camera lens. The remarkable 12x optical zoom combined with 4x digital zoom magnifies images by as much as 48x, enabling users to capture images of subjects at longer distances. The camera features a high-performance LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. Panasonic first introduced the MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer with its DMC-FZ1 in 2003; and, in 2004, was the first to market a digital camera with 12x zoom and MEGA O.I.S.
Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ4 introductionSince then, MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer has been an indispensable and key feature in the company’s Lumix line.

Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer automatically detects and corrects for hand movement, providing precise compensation with no image quality degradation. This technology is especially appreciated when taking telephoto shots or when using slow shutter speeds to capture the atmosphere in dimly lit scenes.
"Panasonic's Optical Image Stabilizer technology dramatically enhances the potential for capturing great shots by photographers at all skill levels," said Monica Helmer, Marketing Manager for Panasonic's Optical Group. "It's especially useful with this small, lightweight camera, and for shooting while zooming, in macro mode, at night or low-light situations, indoors, in moving vehicles, and in spontaneous shooting situations."

Panasonic's LSI Venus Engine II handles image processing, LCD functions, and writing to the memory card simultaneously, making these cameras incredibly responsive with an industry-leading release time lag of 0.006 seconds minimum for the Panasonic DMC FZ4; and shutter interval of approx. 0.3 seconds minimum for the Panasonic FZ4. The LSI also enables lightning-fast consecutive shooting capability, capturing sequential shots at a rate of 4 frames per second at full resolution. An unlimited consecutive shooting function allows the user to take photos in succession until the memory card is full. The LSI also improves horizontal, vertical and diagonal resolution.

Auto angle detection, a new feature, records whether an image was taken horizontally or vertically and displays it accordingly, whether viewed on the camera's LCD or on a connected TV.

Other features include fast AF; selectable manual functions (such as aperture-priority AE, shutter-priority AE and manual exposure); a Simple Mode, in which most settings are made automatically; real-time histogram; color viewfinder; built-in flash, and more.
