PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC FX9 introduction : Panasonic is introducing the incoming Panasonic Lumix DMC FX9 digital camera, which is the next-generation model of the world-renowned stylish and compact MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)-equipped FX series. The Panasonic FX series boasts high picture quality, a large LCD, compactness and stylish design, features desired in a compact camera. Its startup time accelerated, the Panasonic DMC-FX9 is now with substantially upgraded with total effective pixels increased to 6 Megapixel, and includes the zoom function Extra Optical Zoom that extends zoom ratio up to 4.1x in 3-Megapixel recording and a clearer LCD based on the Panasonic FX8 that was released earlier.
Panasonic Lumix DMC FX9 introductionPanasonic DMC FX9 - 2.5-inch LCD
The increase in effective pixels to the large as 6 Megapixel produces impressive, precisely detailed images. The highly commended 2.5-inch large LCD now provides much more clarity, by increasing its resolution to 207K pixels. Also, a total of 14 scene modes including 2 new modes allow all users to enjoy taking high quality pictures more easily and more comfortably. The Panasonic Lumix FX9 is available in silver, black and red colors, each with a specially textured coating pleasing to the touch.

Panasonic FX9 - 6 Megapixel CCD and Leica DC lens
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 has a 1/2.5-inch 6 Megapixel CCD to capture high-resolution image. The 3x (equivalent to 35mm to 105mm on a 35mm film camera) zoom ratio can be extended up to 4.1x in 3 Megapixel image recording mode with minimal deterioration, by intentionally using the central part of the 6 Megapixel high resolution CCD. The lens part is comprised of Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. The combination of 3 aspherical lenses generates high optical performance while preserving the compactness of the unit.

Lumix DMC FX9 - MEGA O.I.S
MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer), that Panasonic thinks it indispensable for all digital cameras, especially for compact models that lacks stability, is subsumed under Lumix all line-up released in this year. Every slight hand-shake movement is detected accurately with the sampling frequency at 4,000 times per second and will be compensated to render clear, sharp images. MEGA O.I.S. is equipped with 2 selectable modes. In “Mode 1”, the O.I.S. lens continuously compensates for vibration and in “Mode 2”, the O.I.S. lens suppresses hand-shake only at the moment the shutter button is pressed. In this mode, the lens can move in all directions at the moment to maximize its effect, and higher-resolution image can be taken by capturing the image as close as to the center of the lens. In consequence, since MEGA O.I.S. enables a beautiful picture shot without blurring at slower shutter speeds of more than three steps compared to the conventional models without O.I.S., you can enjoy shooting clear and beautiful pictures easily even in the situations using slow shutter speeds, like indoor shots for portraits and nighttime scenery for illuminated object, as well as in shootings using macro mode.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FX9 - LSI Venus Engine Plus
The Panasonic DMC-FX9 incorporates the Venus Engine Plus LSI for high performance image processing in both speed and image quality as well as other Panasonic Lumix models. For the burst shooting mode, it boasts the shooting at 3 frames per second at full resolution. You can start it the moment you want thanks to the independent button (The button also performs as “delete” in playback mode), allowing you to record consecutive images and select the best one afterward. And the Unlimited Consecutive Shooting function (The speed of the unlimited consecutive shooting varies depending on the Secure Digital memory card) allows limit-free consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD memory card. The industry-leading release time lag of 0.006 sec does not let you miss a shooting chance and helps you capture the spur-of-the-moments. The Venus Engine Plus reduces the power consumption to the 70% of that of Venus Engine II. On the other hand, high density mounting allows bigger and more powerful battery to fit in. Both result in the extension of battery life enabling the shooting of 270 images per single charge.

Panasonic Lumix FX9 - Fast AF and High quality movies
The AF method can be selected according to the shooting situation: 5-point, 3-point high-speed, 1-point high-speed, 1-point normal-speed and Spot. In 1- point high-speed AF, the AF time has been dramatically reduced to achieve outstanding focusing with speed and precision as good as the FX8. Although screen-freeze in high-speed AF is now minimized, to take pictures of fast-moving subjects you can select 1-point normal-speed AF, which does not have any screen-freeze while focusing. Finally, to extend the AF ability under low-light conditions or even at night, an AF assist lamp is included. A newly incorporated CCD that adopts a 9-pixel mixed readout method makes it possible to record beautiful full-size movies in VGA size at 30 fps. The new CCD provides much higher luminous signals, enhancing the picture quality not only in size but also in the brightness level of the image. On the sound front, built-in speaker lets you enjoy playing back movies with audio on the 2.5-inch large LCD anytime, anywhere.

Panasonic Lumix FX9 digital camera - Large display and More playback options
The 2.5-inch large LCD monitor is substantially increased in resolution by more than 180% up to 207k pixels and provides a much clearer view together with the powerful backlighting of the Power LCD function that helps easy viewing even outdoors in sunny locations. Thanks to the large, clear LCD, you can now display images that are precise even in thumbnail format, at a maximum of 25 images at a time. The newly incorporated large, high-resolution LCD allows the display of images even in tiny thumbnail size. Playback of 9, 16 and 25 is possible on a multi-split screen in addition to the normal 1 frame playback. This helps you to search for the image you want out of a number of images stored on the SD Memory Card, even if the images are in bulk. Furthermore, you can virtually checkmark your favorite images and keep them selected apart from the others, to make special slideshow with them only or make concurrent deletion of the non-check marked ones if you do not need them anymore. Thanks to this feature, the Panasonic FX9 can serve not just as a tool for shooting images but also as a digital album, to enjoy seeing and showing your favorite pictures.

Lumix FX series - Easy-to-use scene modes
LUMIX FX series has a mode dial that shortcuts the selection of the scene mode that best matches the situation quickly and easily. The Panasonic DMC FX9 contains 2 new modes added to the FX8’s Portrait, Sports, Scenery, Night Scenery, Fireworks, Party, Snow, Self Portrait, Baby, Soft Skin and Food, providing a total of 14 scene modes to assist your shooting according to the wide-ranging situations. Let us once again introduce our unique mode “Baby”. This allows easy growth recording in which the baby’s time of age according to the preset birthday would be automatically recorded onto the image, as well as maximizing the purity by giving a shade of soft focus on the subject. This information can be displayed when you view the images taken in this mode on the camera LCD, and when reviewed or printed via the included Lumix Simple Viewer.

Panasonic Lumix DMX FX-9 - pre-programmed modes
“Starry Sky” helps you capture the beautiful star-filled night sky by securing shutter speeds as slow as 15, 30 or 60 sec. “Candle” catches the natural color of candlelit sites without damaging the warm atmosphere. Both situations are normally difficult to capture as seen through your eyes, but these modes will help the camera approximate. On the other hand, the simple mode offers easy shooting even to entry-level users by making most settings automatically. You just aim at the subject, zoom in or out, and press the shutter button.
