Product Information

product description

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.

14.1 Megapixels
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.

HD Movies
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.

MEGA O.I.S.
Image stabilisation is achieved by physically adjusting internal lens positions microscopically. This combats camera shake with no falloff of image resolution. It is a great feature in combination with the f/2.8 lens, opening up whole areas of opportunity for pictures in low light where other cameras just would not cope.

Intelligent Auto
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 Exposure.

Additional Features
Beauty Retouch
Auto Panorama (horizontal or vertical)
Auto Retouch
