Panasonic DMC-FH3 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera - DMCFH3K

28mm Wide-angle 5x Optical Zoom Lens with f/2.8 Brightness
The DMC-FH3 features a newly developed 28mm wide-angle* 5x optical zoom f/2.8-6.9 LUMIX DC VARIO lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-140mm) into a compact body. Comprising 6 elements in 5 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 5 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body yet achieving exceptional optical performance.

The 28mm wide-angle lens* lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances.

The DMC-FH3 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-140mm). The Extra Optical Zoom function*1 uses the center part of the CCD to extend this 5x zoom ratio to powerful 10.5x zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 294mm) at a resolution of 3-megapixel or less. Adding the Extra Optical Zoom to the 4x digital zoom* extends the total zooming power to a maximum of 42x.

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Shake Detection
The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)* in the DMC-FH3 compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images. The Venus Engine IV controls the shifting of the blur-stopping lens with even greater precision to further increase the detection accuracy and correction effect of MEGA O.I.S. It works for zoom shots and macro shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake, and lets you shoot in dimly lit rooms or evening illumination to preserve the mood. In short, it lets anybody take beautiful, blur-free shots with ease.
* MEGA O.I.S. is automatically turned on in iA Mode and can be turned on or off in Normal Picture Mode or some Scene Modes.

Sonic Speed AF
The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-FH3 (has a maximum speed of approx. 0.35 second for auto focusing*. It includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.

Extended Battery Life
The energy-saving Venus Engine IV image-processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FH3. This lets users take approx. 310 shots on a single battery charge*.

    Comments about Panasonic DMC-FH3 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

    I never appeared in family pictures until I bought this camera.

    Other cameras were difficult to use or did not take great pictures. I used to drag around my large digital SLR camera everywhere we went and my spouse would not use it because he didn't know how to work the camera. This one takes great photos and is easy to use.

    I used this camera on a recent trip to Jackson Hole, WY. We went on a 4 hour hike and the camera was small enough to fit in my shorts pocket - but it also took great photos. I highly recommend it.

      Comments about Panasonic DMC-FH3 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      Convenient pocket unit versatile enough to use in place of a bulky SLR or Super Zoom for a day trip. Easy to operate and accurate. Bought the camera on vacation in the Caribbean, and never pulled out the SLR again.
