Ultra Slim for maximum portability in an ultra compact JeansPocket™ Certified body. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP1 features 12.1MP resolution (1/2.33-in. CCD), 4x optical zoom (35-140mm equiv.), optical Image Stabilization to help reduce blurred shots due to camera shake, a 6.9-cm (2.7-in.) LCD display screen (230k-dot), and HD Movie 1280×720 @ 30fps with monaural sound.

Intelligent Scene Selector can identify six common scenes (Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery, Sunset) 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.

Photo Frame puts attractive borders around the photo and when printed, the photos can look like postcards in picture frames.

The Panasonic FP1 uses the SD / SDHC / SDXC (up to 64GB) memory card.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP1 is an ultra-slim point-and-shoot digital camera that is ideal for those who desire a take-anywhere easy-to-use and fashionable digital camera. Available in a variety of colors (Black, Red, and Grey in Canada), priced at about US $TBD (CAD $TBD).

  • Hunt around for a decent price and you’ll be very pleased to get what you pay for: a decent little camera at the near-budget end of the market but with some nice touches (Ideally it’d be c15-20% cheaper than its stablemate the FS10, which is what I paid):

    1) Optical image stabilisation (mega OIS)
    2) 4x (non-protruding) optical zoom
    3) Panasonic build quality
    4) Tiny (it fits into my blackberry bold case)
    5) Nice looking
    6) Rechargeable battery with 300-shot capacity
    7) Hi-def video recording

    You compare this with others in the same price-range, and you’ll get a few of the above points, but not all. As the bottom-of-range from Panasonic it’s a pretty good effort, and a step-up from the old LS80 etc.

    If size doesn’t matter and you’re happy to pay a bit more get the FS10 with a 5x zoom and 28mm wide lens, otherwise this is a nice small take-everywhere in your jeans-pocket cam.
