Hybrid Super Zoom Camera FZ45 - From 25mm Wide-angle to 24x Optical Zoom for both Still and HD Motion Pictures
The 14.1-megapixel DMC-FZ45 features a 25mm wide-angle 24x optical zoom f/2.8-5.2 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. The 25mm wide-angle lens has about twice the shooting area of the standard 35mm 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 50.6x zoom at a resolution of 3-megapixel 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. Motion JPEG format is also available (1,280 x 720 pixels). 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. When the DMC-FZ45 is connected to a Panasonic VIERA via an optional mini HDMI cable, the TV's remote control unit can be used to enjoy playing back with greater convenience.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. So you can take beautiful night shots without blurring. Activating POWER O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and AF Tracking, the camera does all the work in the iA Mode. And Happy Mode optimizes colour 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. The Intelligent Zoom extends zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the image quality even combining a digital zoom. 24x optical can virtually extend to 32x equivalent.
The excellent manual controllability is the advantage of DMC-FZ45. The jog dial enhances ease of use. My Colour Mode and Film Mode make it easy to customize colour effects to suit your mood. The Advanced Scene Mode lets you quickly set the frequently used Portrait, Scenery, Sports, Night Portrait, or Close-up Modes with the mode dial. The DMC-FZ45 also features a 3.0-inch 230,000-dot Intelligent LCD with wide-viewing angle.

Faulty items: all cameras we sell come with standard manufacturer warranty. Which means in unlikely event that your product develops a fault, simply get in contact with manufacturer directly to claim warranteed service, normally warranty doesn't cover accident damage caused by improper use, or other causes of similar nature. Manufacturer reserves right to final decide the nature of fault, not seller or customer. To do so, simply ring them on number from official UK website and they will advise how to proceed.
As usual, faults developped with 14 days are considered manufacturer fault, in extreme unlikely event of this, send it back, we'll forward to manufacturer to confirm nature of fault, if it's not caused by improper use, we'll replace for you.
Faults after 14 days are classed non-manufacturer fault and will be put in warranty claim process, normally will be repaired free of charge.
Please support our own economy, not to buy from grey imports from Asia or the U.S with so called "seller" warranty!
