The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7 that does your makeup too!

Not everyone owns or are skilled in Photoshop techniques that smooth out all the imperfections on our face and bodies. With this handy camera, you don’t need to worry as it does it all for you. Using built-in Beauty Retouch modes, this camera actually has the ability to even skintone, reduce shine, whiten your teeth and give you a healthy glow all with the touch of a button. The DMC-FP7‘s make-up mode gives you colour options such as foundation, eye-shadow or colouring for the lips and cheeks. What’s really great is that you can also adjust the degree of retouching, so you are in full control of how much you want to perfect your subjects!

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7 is a sleek and futuristic digital camera with 16.1 megapixels and 4x optical zoom lens. The DMC-FP7′s lens offers a 35mm-equivalent range from a 35mm wide angle to a 140mm telephoto and features a true optical image stabilization system that helps prevent blur caused by camera shake. The Panasonic FP7′s lens offers apertures from f/3.5 to f/5.6 at wide angle, and from f/5.9 to f/7.1 at telephoto.

The Panasonic FP7 offers a 3.5″ LCD display that serves as the FP7′s primary input device, thanks to a touch-panel overlay. It includes an 11-step automatic brightness adjustment, that delivers good visibility in a range of viewing conditions. The Panasonic DMC-FP7 has an 11-point multi-area autofocus system which also includes a single-point focusing mode. Like almost all digital cameras these days, there’s also a face detection function.

ISO ranges from 100 to 1600, with the ability to extend this as far as ISO 6400 equivalent in High Sensitivity mode. Shutter speeds from 1/1,600 to 60 seconds are possible. The Panasonic DMC-FP7 uses Intelligent Multiple metering and offers six white balance settings including Auto, Manual, and 4 fixed presets. A vast selection of 27 scene modes let users tailor the look of their images, useful given that the Panasonic FP7 doesn’t offer aperture-priority, shutter-priority, or fully manual modes. There’s also an Intelligent Scene Selection function, which can automatically select from 6 commonly used scene modes. A 5 mode flash strobe includes red-eye reduction capability and has a rated range of up to 3.3 meters using Intelligent ISO.

As well as JPEG still images, the Panasonic FP7 can capture 24 frames-per-second movies with monaural sound at high definition 720p resolution.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7 stores its images and movies on either SD, SDHC, or the latest SDXC types. There’s also a pretty generous 70MB of built-in memory. Connectivity options include a USB 2.0 High-Speed connection, plus standard definition NTSC video output. Power comes from a proprietary 660mAh Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack. The software bundle includes PHOTOfunSTUDIO v6.0, Quicktime, and Adobe Reader.
