It seems that touchscreen is now an essential part of any gadgets, from mobile phone to PMP to digital camera. Panasonic introduces the Lumix DMC-FX500 (also known as FX520) digital camera that comes with a touchscreen.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 features a 10.1 Megapixel image sensor, 5x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens, 4x digital zoom, 25-125mm wide-angle lens, MEGA O.I.S, and ISO sensitivity up to 1600 with Intelligent ISO control
The FX500 has a 3-inch LCD touchscreen. It can take1280 x 720p HD videos. FX500 has 27MB built-in memory and supports SD/SDHC memory cards.
*Intelligent Exposure To help correct photos from being under- or over-exposed, the FX500 instantly analyzes the framed image and adjusts the brightness in areas that are too dark because of dim lighting, backlighting or the use of the flash.
*Digital Red-eye Helps eliminate the red-eye problem that sometimes results when taking flash shots at the night. Incorporated into the built-in flash, the camera emits a small preliminary flash before the main flash, detects red-eye and digitally corrects it.
*MEGA O.I.S.Gyrosensors detect hand-shake and the lens system shifts to compensate, helping to prevent hand-shake from creating a blurry image.
*Intelligent ISO Determines if the photo subject is moving and changes the ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly.
8Intelligent Scene Selector Senses the ambient conditions, recognizes the shooting environment and automatically selects the appropriate scene mode from: Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait or Night Scenery mode.
*Face Detection - Detects faces anywhere in the frame and automatically chooses the optimal focus and exposure settings so portraits come out clear and crisp. Detecting up to 15 faces, Panasonic’s Face Detection can even track a face if the subject is moving.
*Continuous AF Maintains focus on the subject even without the user pressing a shutter button halfway, thus minimizing the AF time.
