Wide-angle 4x optical zoom (28-112mm equiv.) is ideal for capturing wide vistas and large group shots. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-F3 features 12.1MP resolution (1/2.33-in. CCD), a 6.9-cm (2.7-in.) LCD display screen (230k-dot), and HD Movie 1280×720 @ 30fps with monaural sound — all in an ultra slim JeansPocket™ Certified body.
Auto SCN can identify six common scenes (Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery, Macro) and automatically selects the appropriate settings. For more challenging shooting situations, match the scene yourself to the appropriate Scene Mode. For example, Night Portrait scene mode sets the camera so you can take a night picture where the main subject (lit by flash) and the background (long exposure) are both recorded. Starry Sky scene mode extends the shutter speed range to 15, 30 or 60 sec. for creative night photography.
For those who desire a bit more control, switch to Program AE (P) mode and dial in an exposure compensation to compensate for scenes that are too bright or too dark.
The Panasonic F3 uses the SD / SDHC / SDXC (up to 64GB) memory card.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-F3 is an ultra compact point-and-shoot digital camera that is ideal for those who desire a take-anywhere easy-to-use digital camera with a wide-angle lens.
