ISO 1, is probably the practical limit of small-sensor digicams. CIPA requires quite a few flash shots and I avoid them, so my mileage was very good on this battery. For example, pressing the Mode button brings up a screen filled with recording options and you just tap the one you want. The noise reduction system is greatly improved by removing noise at the processing stages in series. There is some light color fringing evident, which seems to get darker and more pronounced toward the edges of the lens and at wider angles and apertures. Even at 5x optical zoom, I’m not sure you need optical image stabilization. The mobile world might finally get exciting again in

Dx500 with that, some include face detection which Auto would do anyway and ISO control to prevent blurring which, again, Auto would do. But with 10mp to crop from, that’s no biggie.

As such, it features many technologies beyond those needed to take a oumix snapshot such as shutter- and aperture-priority modes and controls for color effects and adjusting sharpness, color, and noise reduction. Or a two-finger stretch.

Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. It’s not a pro digital camera.

You can get a little help. Similarly selecting Scene mode shows all of those choices for you to tap on. Compare that to the Panasonic FX’s 25 x 5 for mm. Construction feels pretty f5x00 as well. Its burst rate is 1. In some cases, you may be happy to have the picture regardless of the noise. The Bad Noticeable shutter lag; controls take some getting used to; no optical zoom in Movie mode. You can wake it up quickly just by half pressing fd500 Shutter button.


Interestingly Panasonic does this by actually adjusting the sensitivity in different parts of the sensor.

We also liked its mm equivalent lens, which delivers reasonably sharp images. I have to have a little talk with myself whenever a new camera arrives. When you are shooting, a touch screen makes the camera a two-handed tool. No Longer Available Update Location close. For a detailed listing of specifications and features, please refer to the specifications table found at the bottom of the review.

The mobile world might finally get exciting again in When you’re in Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority, or Manual modes, onscreen sliders appear for quickly making adjustments and they work really well, to boot. It takes great photos and great HD video.

The Panasonic Lujix also offers autofocus- and autoexposure-linked face detection capable of detecting 15 faces in a scene, as well as intelligent exposure and ISO features that tweak variables to correct common exposure problems and prevent subject blur, respectively.
