The Panasonic DMC-FS41 combines the quality and brightness of an f/2.8 Leica lens
with 14 megapixel resolution and the inclusion of optical image stabilisation further
improves the low light credentials of this quality camera.
5x Wide Angle Leica Zoom
The 5x zoom lens on the FS41 has an extra bright maximum aperture of f/2.5 which
is even 25% brighter than the already superior f/2.8. It is a Leica DC Vario-Summarit
design with Leica being synonymous with the best optical quality. At the wide angle
end of the zoom it includes the equivalent of 24mm focal length, allowing for wider
angles to be captured in the frame than on many other digital cameras. The 5x zoom
range can also be doubled using Intelligent Zoom which utilises Intelligent Resolution
Technology. This means that you get a 10x zoom range with effectively very little
falloff of image quality.
The CCD sensor in this camera has 14.1 effective megapixels, giving you the freedom
to make extra large prints, still with sharp image quality.
The FS41 records movies in 720p HD quality using the Motion JPEG format. You can
easily upload movie footage to FacebookTM and YouTubeTM with the supplied LUMIX
Image Uploader software.
The Intelligent Auto, or iA mode uses a combination of several technologies to automatically
set the camera without you having to worry. These are MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO
control (sensitivity), Face Detection AF/AE, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent
Auto Panorama (horizontal or vertical)
Sonic Speed AF for extra fast focusing
