Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 digital camera small in size, big on features
We’re pretty sure that most of you out there are familiar with the phrase, do not judge a book by its cover? The same applies to the world of gizmos as well, as we are not supposed to judge how a gadget will perform based on its size and looks. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 is one such device that ought to be approached with a degree of respect, since this super-slim digital camera might be small in stature, but it manages to pack in big features such as a 24mm ultra-wide-angle F2.2 bright LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens with 5x optical zoom that will come in handy if you’re a huge fan of shooting High Definition video for posterity. Apart from that, this slim and stylish LUMIX FX75 is a 14.1-megapixel digital camera that makes it one of Panasonic’s high-performing hybrid models.
The LUMIX FX75 is able to record HD video in the AVCHD Lite format, where this format will more or less double the recording time in HD quality when compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format. When doing so, this content makes perfect fodder for viewing on an HDTV, while Dolby Digital Creator can also record high quality audio. Of course, you can also record in Motion JPEG if you want to, not to mention WVGA (848×480) and VGA (640×480) resolutions. You will find the LUMIX FX75 equipped with full touch-screen operation, where Auto Focus (AF) lets you capture the subject by simply touching the large 3″ 230,000-dot LCD display. Not only that, you can also click onto a subject with a single touch, where the FX75 will go ahead and track the subject with the AF tracking feature – despite moving.
Panasonic’s iA (Intelligent Auto) mode will also go one up on its previous iterations, as the LUMIX FX75 offers a new Motion Deblur mode mode that will update the motion detection (Intelligent ISO Control) and brightness control (Intelligent Exposure) in order to gain the highest shutter speed possible. This will greatly reduce blur created from handshake or the subject moving. Other technologies in the iA suite include POWER O.I.S., Face Recognition, Face Detection, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure. There is no word on pricing just yet, although expect an announcement to be made a month before it ships to various market.
