Product Details

Panasonic DMC-FS15 Black 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera - DMCFS15K


iA Mode for One-Touch Beauty
Press the iA button, aim, and shoot. With the FS15, taking great photos is that easy. iA Mode activates six detection and correction functions - including Tracking AF, which locks on and follows your subject - so you get beautiful, clear shots.

  • Mega O.I.S. helps prevent blurring when the camera shakes
  • Intelligent ISO Control helps prevent blur caused by subject motion
  • Intelligent Scene Selector selects the optimal scene mode for the situation
  • Intelligent Exposure adjusts the brightness of dark areas in the image
  • Face Detection AF/AE helps deliver clear portraits
  • Tracking AF locks the focus onto your moving subject

LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 5x optical zoom
The 29mm wide-angle lens captures a wider area than a standard 35mm lens. Add the superior rendering performance of the Leica DC lens, 5x optical zoom power, and a Zoom Macro* function that lets you get within 0.03 ft (1cm) of your subject, and the FS15 is fully equipped to capture a wide variety of beautiful, expressive shots.
*In 3M (4:3) or below recording.

Large, easy-to-see Intelligent 2.7-inch LCD
The high-resolution, 230,000-dot LCD makes it easier to frame the shot before you shoot and check the results after you shoot. It also makes it more fun to view your photos with family and friends.

The brightness changes to match your surroundings
The LCD brightness automatically adjusts in nine steps to match the brightness of your surroundings. This ensures good viewability even outdoors on a sunny day, and improved viewing comfort when you're inside a dark room.

Easy-to-read display with large fonts
To prevent mistakes reading the remaining battery display and other settings, you can enlarge the fonts for easier viewing.

      Appears to be a great camera but there is so much to learn from the manual. Have not had a lot of opportunity to use it in many different situations.
      I love its compact size.

      Comments about Panasonic DMC-FS15 Black 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      this camera has been great for taking shots of the outdoors and around the house. I have been disappointed with picture quality in close up shots in which detail is important. There is a lot of blurriness and photo correction using a computer application doesn't really clean up the shot very well. For ease of use I would say that this camera is great, but don't expect too much if you crave clear detail shots , especially using the zoom feature.I intended to use this camera for both photographing subject matter to paint, and also to photograph my paintings. Great for the subject matter, not at all great for the paintings.

      Control buttons are readily available and easy to use. It's very easy to switch from one setting to another. The battery life is shown when you turn it on but the battery seems to need recharging often. I have ordered another battery to keep on hand and would recommed a spare battery to all users.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was on time as promised and packaging was great.

      Comments about Panasonic DMC-FS15 Black 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      I purchased this camera to be a replacement for an older camera, a Cannon Powershot S50, purchased back in 2003. This camera, while compact, feels fine in the hand and takes decent pictures in low-light situations. It definitely takes better indoor pictures than the Cannon S50 (the flash on the S50 was horrible), but it is in the detail of the pictures that I am dissapointed. I was expecting that the image quality would be just as good, if not better than my 6 year old digital, which was only a 5 megapixel camera. If you are just interested in a point and shoot and are not that particular about image quality, then this camera will do the trick. If you are looking for something that takes sharp pictures in a pocket-size camera, you may need to look eslewhere.
