The Panasonic LUMIX FH8 Digital Camera (Red) is a slim, compact and stylish point-and-shoot camera. It boasts a 16.1-megapixel 1/2.33" CCD sensor for superior image quality. Aside from easily capturing gorgeous still images, even in low light situations, the camera can record 720p High Definition (HD) video in MP4 format via a dedicated video button. Equipped with a 24 mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens, the LUMIX FH8 offers a 5x optical zoom with f/2.5 brightness. This high-end lens does an exemplary job of shooting dynamic landscapes with wide-angle view and also excels at capturing subjects in motion, even in low-light situations, such as indoors or at night. Providing terrific optical performance with minimal distortion and chromatic aberrations, while suppressing ghosting and flare, the sophisticated lens unit enables higher shutter speed and captures beautifully clear images.

The 5x optical zoom also boosts its power to the equivalent of 10x with the iA Zoom (Intelligent Auto Zoom) function, with reduced deterioration of image quality, courtesy of Intelligent Resolution technology. The multi-tasking image-processing Venus Engine enables beautiful image recording and Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus), combined with a fast camera start-up time to provide a high-speed response time ensuring that you can capture even the most spontaneous photo opportunities.

Enjoy a bright 3.0" (7.6 cm) Intelligent LCD screen, featuring automatic backlight adjustment to provide a clear view of photos under all lighting conditions.

The FH8 incorporates creative modes to spice up your photography. Panorama Shot mode enables you to shoot horizontal or vertical panoramic images by taking consecutive shots and then overlaying to lend the effect of a panoramic photo. The popular Beauty Retouch function lets you give photos a bunch of different cosmetic effects and Auto Retouch adjusts contrast and brightness levels to lend photos a different appearance. The LUMIX FH8 also adds Miniature Effect mode where peripherals are defocused and saturation and contrast are emphasized to give the picture the look of a diorama. Video recorded in Miniature Effect mode is played back in 10x fast-forwarding, which makes it comical and fun to watch.

Intelligent Auto, or iA mode, enables you to automatically activate a whole suite of technologies to improve photos-- without adjusting settings each time conditions change. Under the iA mode umbrella are: AF Tracking, which makes it easy to lock on subjects in a frame and keep them in focus - even as they move; MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization); Intelligent ISO Control; Face Detection; Intelligent Scene Selector; and Intelligent Exposure.

LUMIX Image Uploader permits you to instantly share images and videos on Facebook or YouTube with your PC. Enjoy the new flexibility of USB charging or traditional AC adapter charging methods.

Note! Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode and roughly 1/10 of the time period will be recorded. If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long
