Tracey, York Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good quality pictures and easy to use.
Bad points:
Battery life is very poor. We bought this camera to replace an old lumix and it needs recharging much more often which is annoying as we use it for the business. The opening part to attach the lead to the computer to upload the pictures is poor and flimsy and more difficult to use compared to older models and Panasonic i feel should revert back to that design as i can see it is just a matter of time before this breaks. Generally i prefer the older version to use for my business although the picture quality is better.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Compact Digital Camera FS45 – Bright F2.5 LEICA DC Lens with 24mm Ultra Wide-angle and 16.1-megapixel CCD

The DMC-FS45 incorporates bright F2.5 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens from 24mm ultra wide-angle. The F2.5 lens is approx. 25% brighter than the F2.8 lens which is generally considered a bright lens. It allows the use of faster shutter speed but captures clear, blur-free images even in low lighting situation. The 5x optical zoom increases its power to 10x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function. This is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology.

With DMC-FS45, there are two options to record spur-of-the-moment scenes – 16.1-megapixel high-resolution photos and HD videos. In still image recording, the Sonic Speed AF helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities. In video recording, the DMC-FS45 can record HD (1280 × 720) videos in MP4 format. This format has high compatibility with computers. A separate button lets you instantly start recording video without the need of extra settings. The digital zoom is available in video recording.
The MEGA O.I.S. compensates for blurring caused by hand-shake. Apart from the digital image correction, the MEGA O.I.S. corrects a jolt of light axis by shifting the O.I.S. lens unit to offset it. Thus the image is not affected digitally nor deteriorated at all. The MEGA O.I.S. lets you shoot in dimly lit rooms or evening illumination without losing the mood. It also works for macro shots and zoom shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. Together with the bright LEICA DC lens, the DMC-FS45 powerfully suppresses blurring.

In the iA Mode, advanced detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. The iA Mode includes the MEGA O.I.S. to detect hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to detect faces in the frame, AF Tracking to continuously track a moving subject and keep it in focus, Intelligent Scene Selector to detect scene conditions, and Intelligent Exposure to detect the brightness level.
The Miniature Effect Mode in which the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to make the picture look like a diorama.

The video recorded in this mode is played back in 10x fast-forwarding making it more comical to watch. The Panorama Shot in the Scene Mode makes it possible to shoot horizontal / vertical panoramic images by overlaying consequently shot images. The Beauty Retouch Mode makes it possible to virtually apply make-up on the faces.
