The aim is to foster stylishness, while still maintaining the most coveted digital features. Take into consideration the unit’s Intelligent Auto (iA) technology, which combined with a fast AF and high-speed startup of only .95 seconds, allows users to quickly capture shots in the blink of an eye. Note also the unit’s POWER Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) which ensures that shaking generated while pressing the shutter button do not significantly affect photo quality. Besides capturing HD photos, the Lumix DMC-FP8 is also built to record HD movies up to 1280x720p at a smooth 30fps. Additional features include twenty-seven scene modes, PHOTOfunSTUDIO 4.0 (view/edit/archive photos), and automatic face recognition with name recognition as well.
