The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12
is an ultra compact and stylish digital camera
that features 7.2MP resolution, a 3x optical zoom
(equivalent to 35-105mm on a 35mm film camera)
with image stabilization, and a large 2.5-in.
LCD. New for the FX Series is a redesigned grip
for more secure one-hand holding.
The FX12 features the MEGA O.I.S.
(Optical Image Stabilizer) system to fight against
hand-shake, the major cause of blurry images.
In addition, the FX12 compensates for the other
major cause of blurry images --subject movement
-- with the Intelligent ISO Control function which
detects subject movement and adjusts the ISO setting
and shutter speed to best suit the movement and
light conditions automatically. Together, they
form Intelligent Image Stabilizer.
Venus Engine III in the FX12 allows
high-sensitivity recording up to ISO 1250 at full
resolution with an improved noise reduction system
which maintains high resolution.
