Panasonic DMC-FH5 Reviews

Cameras.uk reviews the Panasonic DMC-FH5 and writes;
“Overall, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FH5 is comfortable and also quite fun to use… Its image clarity is decent for a compact camera, and it’s a useful camera for happy snaps. However, it did struggle to handle highlights, and this can be annoying when shooting on bright days.”

CameraLabs reviews the Panasonic DMC-FH5 and writes;
“The FS18 / FH5 is an excellent camera, but it lacks the freshness that features like Smart shutter, Face self time, Live View cotnrol and Creative filters have brought to the Canon PowerShot A-series. So while it earns a Recommended award, we’d strongly suggest closely comparing it against the only slightly pricier Canon PowerShot A3300 IS.”

Panasonic DMC-FH5 Features

Slim and stylish, this digital camera is ultra-compact. The 16.1 megapixel LUMIX DMC-FH5 features newly-developed retractable, high-quality 28mm wide-angle LEICA DC lenses with a 4x optical zoom. It boasts approximately 20% slimmer profiles than it’s predecessors, while still maintaining exceptional performance and recording 1280 x 720p High Definition (HD) video. The newly-incorporated Venus Engine VI in the LUMIX FH5 elevates resolution performance, zooming capabilities, start-up speed and auto focusing.

Panasonic’s popular iA (Intelligent Auto) mode
A suite of technologies that engage automatically, with no setting changes needed, makes it easy for anyone to take beautiful photos. The
LUMIX FH5 features two new iA functions – AF (Auto Focus) Tracking and Intelligent Exposure. AF Tracking locks onto any subject
and keeps it in focus. Intelligent Exposure optimizes the exposure for each part of an image, preventing blocked shadows and blown highlights,
while helping to ensure that gradation and details are reproduced flawlessly.

Other features of Panasonic iA mode include:

• MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) – Helps reduce blurry photos due to hand-shake
• Intelligent ISO Control – Reduces blur when the subject is moving
• Face Detection – Helps to ensure registered faces are captured in focus with appropriate exposure, and also digitally corrects unwanted red eyes
• Intelligent Scene Selector – Selects the best option from Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset by detecting the environment
• Intelligent LCD – The LCD detects the lighting conditions and controls the brightness level in 11 fine steps, to display the most appropriate setting
• Scene Modes – A total of 28 modes allow users to record the name/birthday of a child or pet and embed the information in the photo
• Built-in memory – Has increased to 70MB

LUMIX Image Uploader

Users can also enjoy instant photo and video sharing. Simply check the photos/videos you want to share and connect the camera to a PC.
