Panasonic Digital Camera - Get Animated About The Digital DMC-FZ5!
When Panasonic Digital Cameras introduced their Lumix DMC-FZ5 they
brought some real color competition into play for this class of
On the one hand this Panasonic digital camera is a real step up
from its predecessor - the DMC-FZ3 - in terms of color accuracy.
On the other hand it also outperforms many cameras in its type and
price group when it comes to true color rendition.
As such - and incorporating the same Leica-branded DC Vario-Elmarit
zoom with its 12x optical range as the DMC-FZ3 - this digital camera
is a serious contender in the higher-end prosumer market, as Panasonic
digital camera reviews point out. This lens system contributes to
a very good image resolution.
Having said that, expert consumer photographers might very well
expect to be able to manipulate those colorful image files in RAW
format, whereas the DMC-FZ5 only supports TIFF.
One of the most appreciated features of the Panasonic Digital Camera
DMC-FZ5 is its highly effective Mega Optical Image Stabilization
system. It comes with two modes of which the first offers continuous
image stabilization, which is said to assist during image composition.
The second mode - which reportedly is even more effective, only
comes into play during the actual release of the shutter.
This Panasonic digital camera also features a real-time histogram,
which is always welcome on a digital camera. This ensures that you
get a balanced exposure and not blow away the highlights! It is
a challenge to learn how to interpret a histogram instinctively
in the field, but worth the effort for the improved results you
will be getting.
A handy feature highlighted in Panasonic digital camera reviews,
is the ability of the DMC-FZ5 to record sound with still images.
If you have a number of similar objects to record, the 5 second
sound input can help you make sense of your pictures afterwards!
As far as power consumption is concerned, the Panasonic Digital
Camera DMC-FZ5 has a sleep mode to conserve power, and will then
retract the zoom lens. It can be set to come into action after 1-10
minutes, or when you press any button. It uses a proprietary rechargeable
battery, with a charger included. Battery life is longer than with
its DMC-FZ3 predecessor.
If you're tired of serious photography and want to play around
a bit, this Panasonic digital camera offers you an animation feature.
It lets you take a number of sequential-movement stills which you
can then transform automatically into a movie sequence.
So if you or the kids have some clay lying around, this feature
could keep everyone suitably amused for an afternoon...
If not, it will be just as easy to enjoy hours of entertainment
discovering all the superb features of the DMC-FZ5 Panasonic Digital
