If you are looking for a lightweight, stylish and feature packed digital camera, then look no further.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS9 boasts 12 megapixel resolution, a 5x wide-angle zoom plus intelligent photo taking technologies. Not only that, it records 720p HD movies at 30 frames per second in Motion JPEG format. You can also record in standard definition too.

The 2.7″ LCD Monitor on the FS9 has a high resolution display which has an Intelligent LCD feature. This adjusts brightness in 11 steps according to how bright the lighting conditions are. High Angle Mode is included and allows viewing from narrow angles such as when peering over a crowd.

The zoom lens of the DMC-FS9 covers the 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. This means that it covers all the perspectives from wide angle shots to telephoto pictures. The wide setting is particularly useful for indoor and group photos in addition to landscapes. If you require more than 5x zoom, the Extra Optical Zoom function can extend the range to 9.8x using the central part of the image sensor.

This smart camera combines four technologies to analyse image data and improve image quality including:

  •  Mega Optical Image Stabilisation which adjusts itself 4000 times a second,
  •  Intelligent ISO Control, which detects motion in the image area and adjusts camera sensitivity to match. This allows faster shutter speeds to be set when the light levels drop,
  •  Face Detection AF/AE. This adjusts exposure and focus for faces in the frame,
  •  and Intelligent Scene Selector, which assesses image detail and automatically optimises camera settings for Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset settings.

Having a fast image processor allows the inclusion of quick startup and Sonic Speed AF for ultra fast focusing, so never miss the perfect shot !

Overall, this is a really smart and easy to use camera that enables you to capture some great photos and HD video footage.  However, sometimes the camera does have some issues focusing so I have missed a couple of ideal photo opportunities as a result.
