Ultra wide angle 25mm, 5x optical zoom Leica DC lens and iA function are incorporated in slim & compact camera.
The DMC-FX37 features a 25mm ultra-wide angle f/2.8 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with 5x Optical Zoom. The lens provides extra convenience in all shooting situations, like when you’re photographing a group of people at a party indoors or shooting a magnificent structure or scene while traveling.
The iA (Intelligent Auto) mode includes MEGA O.I.S. to detect hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection to detect faces in the frame, Intelligent Scene Selector to detect scene conditions, Light Detection to detect the brightness level and – new to the DMC-FX37 – AF Tracking to continually track a moving subject and keep it in focus. These six functions work automatically and simultaneously in iA Mode to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time.
The DMC-FX37 features a newly developed CCD. Slightly larger than previous types, this 1/2.33-inch CCD fully supports the camera’s 10.1-megapixel resolution.
The DMC-FX37 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 × 720 pixels at 30 fps). The DMC-FX37 also supports the HD Output function (1080i output). Simply connect the camera to an HDTV with an optional HD component cable DMW-HDC2, and you can easily view HD Photos on any HDTV. HD Output makes it possible to enjoy both HD motion images and slideshows of your LUMIX still images, complete with music.
Venus Engine IV uses advanced signal processing to give you even higher-quality images. It also offers a number of other improvements, including more accurate detection and better correction for its MEGA O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO Control functions. Venus Engine IV responds quickly and saves power even with full 10.1-megapixel resolution. Also, the engine splits noise into high and low frequency noise using Wavelet filter. Then it targets its noise reduction algorithms to attain high resolution and low noise even at high ISO sensitivities.
