The Panasonic 25mm wide-angle lens DMCFX48 is a super-compact camera capturing greater area than an ordinary 35mm lens, making it ideal for shooting group photos indoors or wide landscapes outdoors. The 5x optical zoom pulls distant subjects up close, and the exquisite rendering of the Leica DC lens lets you capture nuanced, expressive photos. Using Face Recognition technology, the camera can find photos of people and sort them into categories. This makes it easy to display only photos of a particular person or people, or to set up a slideshow with just those photos. MEGA O.I.S. helps prevent blurring caused by shaky hands when shooting. A Panorama Assist mode makes it easy to take a series of images to combine into a panorama shot, while checking the degree of overlap between adjacent shots. The compact and lightweight body is small and portable, making it perfect for holidays, family days out, or for snapping around the house.

From the Manufacturer
Panasonic's 12.1-megapixel Lumix DMC-FX48 features a 25mm ultra-wide-angle Leica DC lens and a powerful 5x optical zoom (equivalent to 25mm to 125mm on a 35mm film camera), yet its slim profile makes it convenient to slip into a pocket. With a 25mm ultra-wide-angle lens and 5x optical zoom, users can capture nearly double the viewing space at the same shooting distance compared to standard 35mm cameras, thus the FX48 can photograph images with great width and depth. The FX48 also features Face Recognition, a new technology to Panasonic???s proprietary advanced iA (Intelligent Auto) mode.
The FX48 features iA mode, a system of technologies, such as MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection, Auto Focus (AF) tracking, Intelligent Exposure and Intelligent Scene Selector, that engage automatically, without the user having to adjust any settings. Panasonic???s advanced iA also adds Face Recognition, a feature that recognizes individual faces, making it a "personal verification system" in the digital camera. With the Face Recognition feature, a user can give AF and auto exposure priority to a single person in a group, ensuring that a particular person???s face will be focused and exposed beautifully.
With Face Recognition, when a familiar face is recorded several times, the camera will prompt the users to register the face. Once registered, if the familiar face appears in the frame again, the camera will display the name specified for that person and prioritize focus and exposure so that the registered face is bright and sharply focused. During registration, the user can change the icon that indicates when the registered subject is in focus and the person???s age can also be registered. When children less than three years-old are registered, the camera will automatically switch to the Baby scene mode when the child is in the frame. Furthermore, in playback, users can choose to display only photos that contain a specific registered face using Category Playback, so organizing and archiving photos by person becomes much easier.
Panasonic???s newly developed Venus Engine V integrates these advanced functions and controls the camera???s operation with high speed, high performance, and low-power consumption. Beyond the power of the conventional imaging engine, the Venus Engine V has twin CPUs to boast approximately 2.4x processing capability. The Venus Engine V improves its energy efficiency by 16 percent, when compared to the Venus Engine IV, thus extending the battery life to 350 pictures (CIPA).
The DMC-FX48 can also record High Definition (1280 x 720p) motion images at 30 fps. And, using the DMW-HDC2 component cable (optional accessories), the video can output directly to a television, such as a Panasonic VIERA HDTV, for easy playback.
Other features of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48 include:
- A bright 2.5-inch, 230,000-dot resolution Intelligent LCD that provides high resolution and a wide viewing angle.
- New Panorama Assist scene mode allows users to shoot a number of consistent photos, either vertically or horizontally, by aligning them according to a guide that overlaps the screen. Then using those photos and the bundled PanoramaMaker software, users can create dramatic panoramic images.
- High-Speed Burst (Speed Priority) that fires off approx. 10 shots per second.
- Macro Zoom function lets users pull subjects even closer to capture dramatic close-up shots by using the 3x digital zoom in the wide-angle.
- Bundled PHOTOfunSTUDIO 3.0 software that features a Face Recognition function that recognizes the faces in photos stored on the computer, allowing the user to easily sort files by the people photographed. Using the software, motion pictures can also be uploaded directly to YouTube.
