The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 has 8.1MP resolution and is equipped
with 3x optical zoom (equivalent to a 33-100mm
zoom on a 35mm film camera). An Easy Zoom button
provides immediate access to the maximum 3x power
of the optical zoom.
The LS80 features the MEGA
O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) system that incorporates gyrosensors to detect hand-shake and shifts the lens system to compensate, preventing hand-shake from creating a blurry image. In addition, the LS80 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 the Intelligent Image Stabilizer.
With Auto Macro, the LS80 automatically switches to macro mode when you get in close proximity to the photo subject.
Quick AF focuses on the subject even before you press the shutter release button to minimize AF time.
Intelligent LCD automatically adjusts the brightness of the LCD to the ambient light level.
The LS80 records WVGA (848 x 480) motion pictures at 30 frames per second to fit a wide-screen HDTV.
The LS80 runs on two supplied AA
Alkaline batteries (180 pictures). Optional Oxyride batteries
have a CIPA rating of 270 photos, optional rechargeable
NiMH batteries have a CIPA rating of 470.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 is affordable and perfect for the first-time user
who desires an easy-to-use entry-level compact
digital camera with image stabilization, 3x
zoom and lots of useful (and "Intelligent") features.
