The Lumix DMC-FX100 captures images at 12.2 megapixels (1 / 1.72-inch size CCD) and uses a 28mm wide-angle Leica DC lens with 3.6x optical zoom and a brightness of f / 2.8. At the same time it has image stabilization, additional optical zoom to reach a maximum of 7x and Easy Zoom function that, with the push of a button, places the lens at 3.6x.
The Lumix DMC-FX100 has automatic ISO setting (capable of up to 6,400 ISO), Panasonic’s Venus Engine III image processing engine, and high-speed Burst Shooting mode with which the camera is capable of eight shots per second.
It allows you to take photos in high definition (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and record moving images (1,280 x 720 pixels) at 15 frames per second. It has 27 MB of built-in memory and an SDHC / SD memory card slot. The new Lumix DMC-FX100 will be available from July 2007 and its price has yet to be confirmed.
