Panasonic prices its new Lumix DMC-FH7 digital camera
Panasonic has just announced that it will be rolling out its new Lumix DMC-FH7 digital camera at a price point that ought to be pocket friendly – we are looking at $179.99 here, where the Lumix DMC–FH7 will arrive later next month. Coming in just pure black, this is one digital camera that will feature a slim form factor that has a stylish design, making it a snap to tote around with intuitive touch-controls to get you familiarized with its 3″ Smart Touch Screen.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH7’s Smart Touch Screen will let you take full advantage of Touch Auto Focus (AF), Touch Zoom, Touch Shutter and Intelligent Scene Selector through simple taps on its touchscreen display, while there is also a trio of modes that will offer manual creative control – something that more seasoned digital camera users would be pleased to have before making the move over to the world of digital SLRs.
All it takes is a single touch of a finger for you to perform edits of your shots on the digital camera itself, where among them include Beauty Retouch that lets you retouch faces; while Esthetic will create effects on faces including clearing skin texture and whitening teeth. Last but not least, there is the interesting Makeup feature which allows you color options such as foundation, eye-shadow or coloring for the lips and cheeks.
As mentioned earlier, the Lumix DMC-FH7 is not slouch when it comes to the style department, but that does not mean it is a pushover in terms of performance. No sir, with Leica DC lenses that boast of an impressive 4x optical zoom, this device is capable of shooting high definition video at 1280 x 720p resolution at a smooth 24 fps, with Panasonic’s iA technology making the entire process simple and intuitive.
With the Lumix image uploader, you are able to share your recently taken photos over Facebook, while video can be uploaded to YouTube directly with the camera connected to your computer. Panasonic’s Venus Engine VI image processor is also smart enough to automatically detect outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation which results in naturally clear images. Apart from that, this is a multitasking engine that supports a super-fast response time, boasting of a shutter release time lag that is incredibly quick at approximately 0.006 seconds.
