Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ45/DMC-FZ40 14.1 MP Digital Camera - Black

Product description

Product Information
The 14.1 mega pixel DMC-FZ45 features a wide angle 24x optical zoom f/2.8-5.2 DC Vario-Elmarit lens. The powerful 24x optical zoom can be used both in still and motion picture recording. The extra optical zoom function uses the center part of the CCD to extend this 24x zoom ratio to powerful zoom at a resolution of 3 mega pixel or less in still picture recording.The DMC-FZ45 can record HD movie in AVCHD Lite with high sound quality of Dolby Digital Stereo Creator. Just press the motion picture button, and shooting begins. In the creative movie mode, the shutter speed and aperture can be adjusted. The IA mode can also be activated in motion picture recording.The power O.I.S. nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. So you can take beautiful night shots without blurring. And happy mode optimizes color saturation and brightness for vividly memorable scenes.With the intelligent resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are clear and crisp in both photos and movies.

Awesome bridge camera - retire your heavy SLR

Early days but seems to be bristling with features - perhaps the 2 items that persuaded me to buy were its lightness and, above all, the lens quality. The viewfinder is bright and welcome when using the prodigious zoom.
I can only sing its praises so far.

I bought this because it was recommended to me by someone who knows about cameras. I am not disappointed with it at all. I daresay that I will not move the dial from the 'automatic' position but judging by the results I have had so far I don't think it will matter much.
