Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 16MP 8x Zoom Red Digital Camera w/ 3.0" Touchscreen 4GB Bundle

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The Lumix DMC-FH27 Digital Camera features a 28mm wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom in a slim, compact body. Also packs a large 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD.

The DMC-FH27 features a newly developed 28mm wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-224mm) into a slim, compact body. Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body, yet achieving exceptional optical performance.

Powerful 8x Optical Zoom
The DMC-FH27 features a powerful 8x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-224mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact, pocket-sized body can easily go wherever you do - for both everyday snapshots and traveling.

Easy Zoom Button for Quick Close-ups
The DMC-FH27 has the Easy Zoom button to utilize the powerful zoom with ease and comfort. Even when the zoom is set to a position lower than 8x, the first press of the Easy Zoom button immediately gives you the maximum 8x power of the optical zoom. A second press delivers the maximum 18x power of the Extra Optical Zoom. This lets you bring your subject right up close, easily and comfortably.

28mm Wide-angle Lens
The 28mm wide-angle lens lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances.

10x Intelligent Zoom / 18x Extra Optical Zoom
Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-FH27 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 8x optical can virtually extend to 10x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 18x* by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.

16.1-megapixel High-resolution CCD
The DMC-FH27 features a 1/2.33-inch CCD with effective 16.1-megapixel high-resolution.

What You Get with 16.1-megapixel Resolution
Images remain clear and sharp even when they are enlarged to A2 size (594 x 420 mm). An A2 photo is large enough to show a newborn baby or the head and chest of an adult in actual size. Photos in ordinary sizes (127 x 89 mm or 178 x 127 mm) come out beautifully at 3-megapixel. You can trim the photos any way you want.

Quick, Easy Shooting and Playback Smart Touch-screen Operation
The DMC-FH27 gives you smooth, free, touch-control shooting. Your subject is instantly brought into auto focus by simply touching the image on the large, 3.0-inch, 230,000-dot LCD. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch, and the Sonic Speed AF system provides fast, accurate AF performance for an entirely new style of shooting.

A newly designed GUI also enables more comfortable operation. Simply touching the easy-to-understand icons lets you quickly and easily switch shooting modes and select functions.

Touch Shutter
You can operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch. This kind of intuitive touch operation lets you easily catch even fast-action sports shots where your subject is on the move. It also makes it easy to capture decisive moments with optimal framing and settings.

Touch AF
With the DMC-FH27, auto focus can be set at any part of the frame by simply touching the subject on the LCD. This lets you frame your shot easily and accurately. It's also helpful when you want to single out a subject from among other objects in the frame, to optimize focus.

Touch AF Tracking
Touch the screen, and the DMC-FH27 locks on and automatically "tracks" the subject as it moves, keeping on adjusting the focus settings for best results.

Touch Operation in iA Mode
In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, simply touch the subject on the LCD and the DMC-FH27 automatically selects the optimal Scene Mode.

Touch Zoom
Full touch-screen operation on the DMC-FH27 makes zooming even easier. To pull your subject in quickly by zooming to maximum magnification, touch the T button. To make a more precise angle of view adjustment, use the touch lever. These two different functions give you quick and easy control from a single screen.

Touch Playback Control
The touch-screen operation excels not only for shooting but also for playing back images with outstanding visibility. You can drag the image across the screen with a finger to browse a collection of photos as you flip over the pages of the book.

Touch-scroll Playback
The 12/30 Multi Display shows you images in a small thumbnail format. The DMC-FH27 makes it smooth and easy to find the exact shot you want even from a large number of thumbnail images.

Touch-zoom Playback
Zoom Playback has become even more convenient. By simply touching the part to be enlarged, you can zoom in as much as max. 16x. The zoom area can be dragged in any of four directions for speedy and precise confirmation.

Large, 3.0-inch, 230,000-dot High-resolution LCD
The DMC-FH27's large 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD features high 230,000-dot resolution Intelligent LCD. It automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. This LCD provides sharp, clear images in virtually all shooting situations, ranging from nighttime to bright daylight scenes.

The High-angle Mode makes the display extremely easy to view from a low angle, for example, when taking photos by raising your hand upward to capture the subject over the crowd.

The DMC-FH27 features a newly developed 28mm wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-224mm) into a slim, compact body. Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body, yet achieving exceptional optical performance.

Venus Engine VI
The high-speed, high-performance Venus Engine VI is incorporated in the DMC-FH27 to enable the recording of beautiful images with higher quality signal processing including the Intelligent Resolution technology.

An advanced noise reduction system in the Venus Engine VI applies noise reduction (NR) to luminance noise and chromatic noise separately. As a result, beautiful images with minimal noise can be reproduced all the way up to ISO1600 high sensitivity at full resolution for beautiful night shots or dimly lit indoor shots.

Sonic Speed AF
The Sonic Speed AF system includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance.

In addition, the DMC-FH27 features dramatically speedier focusing that is approx. 42% faster than our previous model. Compared with the previous DMC-FH22/FH20. You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.

Fast Start-up Time
The parallel processing of software resulted in ultra high-speed start-up.

Short Release Time Lag
The shutter release time lag is as short as approx. 0.005 second, making it easy to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities.

Intelligent Resolution Technology
The image processing technology ?Intelligent Resolution" is incorporated in the Venus Engine VI for the DMC-FH27.

With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected and optimum signal processes are performed to each area. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it.

As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp.

High Image Quality in High-sensitivity Shooting
The graininess that results from picture noise and the flatness that sometimes comes with noise reduction measures are major concerns when shooting at high sensitivity levels. The Intelligent Resolution minimizes noise to produce sharp, clear images.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
When you don't know which mode will give you the best shooting results, or when a sudden photo opportunity pops up and you don't have time to make any settings, simply choose the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode and let the camera do it all for you. You just choose the iA Mode, aim at your subject, and shoot. 6 detection and correction functions are simultaneously activated to optimize the settings, so you get stunning photos every time.

In addition, the Intelligent Resolution technology is always activated in the iA Mode which results in the clearer and higher image quality in every photo with extended zoom range equivalent to 10x by the Intelligent Zoom.

Just press the shutter button, and these advanced technologies automatically and simultaneously go to work

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) - Shake Detection
The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) in the DMC-FH27 compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images. The Venus Engine VI controls the shifting of the blur-stopping lens with even greater precision to further increase the detection accuracy and correction effect of MEGA O.I.S. It works for zoom shots and macro shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake, and lets you shoot in dimly lit rooms or evening illumination to preserve the mood. In short, it lets anybody take beautiful, blur-free shots with ease.

AF Tracking - Subject Detection
Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus. The AF Tracking makes sure you don't miss those once-in-a-lifetime shooting opportunities.

With the DMC-FH27, the AF subject is also selected by touch control.

Quick AF
The DMC-FH27 features the Quick AF. Ordinary AF is activated when the shutter button is pressed half-way, while the Quick AF starts operating as soon as the camera is pointed toward a subject. This dramatically reduces the shutter delay time and lets you take images quickly. Its super-fast focus is ideal for capturing quick images of active children and pets. By setting the camera to the Quick AF, images of sudden shooting opportunities won't be out of focus or blurry.

Intelligent ISO Control - Motion Detection
The Intelligent ISO Control function in the DMC-FH27 made possible by the Venus Engine VI detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions. When it detects subject motion, it automatically raises the ISO setting and increases the shutter speed to prevent motion blur. On the other hand, when the subject is still and no movement is detected, it takes beautifully natural photos with a low ISO setting.

The Intelligent ISO Control gives you stunning images with ease because there is no need for complicated settings.

Face Detection AF/AE
The Face Detection AF/AE function detects faces and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure settings. It prevents the blurry faces that happen when the camera focuses on something in front of or behind the subject, and keeps faces from appearing dark when shooting indoors or against the light source. It detects up to 15 faces at a time, making it extremely convenient for group photos. Once the camera detects a face, Face Tracking follows it even when the subject moves around. Plus, the system keeps on detection if a face turns sideways to the camera.

The DMC-FH27 is also equipped with Digital Red-eye Correction (Red-eye Removal). The camera takes care of the red-eye effect that often happens when shooting with a flash, to ensure attractive facial expression

Intelligent Scene Selector - Scene Detection
When the camera's in iA Mode, the Intelligent Scene Selector automatically sets the Scene Mode to one of Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait, Night Scenery or Sunset. The camera judges it from the various detection results such as focusing and brightness level of the circumstance. You are free from annoying settings every time scene changes when taking images with these most frequently used Scene Modes to get beautiful results even before you know it.

Intelligent Exposure - Light Detection
The Intelligent Exposure function increases the exposure only in under-exposed areas by detecting the brightness level part-by-part in the image. If the background includes the sky, which tends to be easily washed out, the camera automatically adjusts the aperture and shutter speed to keep the setting slightly under-exposed to prevent wash-out while brightening the darkened area by increasing the ISO only in that area. If the background of an indoor portrait receives insufficient lighting from a flash and becomes dark, the ISO sensitivity is raised in only the low-lit area to make it brighter without causing graininess in the subject's face.

Auto Backlight Compensation
When there is strong backlighting, the background appears nice and bright, but the subject is dark. This function detects backlight condition and compensates it automatically.

HD Movie Recording
The DMC-FH27 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 24 fps in Motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings.
The DMC-FH27 can also record standard motion images in VGA (640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels at 30 fps).

LUMIX Image Uploader
The DMC-FH27 gives you a new form of communication by letting you share your photos and movies. All you have to do is checkmark the photos and movies you want to share and connect the camera or SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card to a computer. Uploading automatically starts by simply following the guidance. Facebook can be used for photos and YouTube for movies. You can join these social networking services without having to install any special software. It's easy to share photos and movies on the spot, which means that your friends don't have to wait for you to come back home to see them.

Scene Mode
The Scene Mode lets the camera make the optimal settings for you automatically, so anybody can take superb photos with ease. The versatile Scene Mode range, which handles just about any situation and subject type, is a major LUMIX feature. And to make it even simpler to use, the icons and display are designed for easy visibility.

The DMC-FH27 lets you store a frequently used Scene Mode setting in the My Scene Mode.

Screen for taking the second shot
This is a handy function for aligning panorama photos using the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 6.0 Edition. The afterimage of each previous shot is displayed, so you can use it to precisely line up the second and third shots.

High-speed Burst Mode
High-speed Burst Mode fires off up to approx. 4.4 frames per second with 3-megapixel resolution, which is highly sufficient for photo prints. This is great for capturing fast-moving sports or racing scenes. You can take a series of shots, then choose the ones you like the best and delete the rest. (Note that the focus and exposure are fixed at the first frame.)

In 3-megapixel (4:3), 2.5-megapixel (3:2), 2-megapixel (16:9) recording. The consecutive shooting speed varies depending on the memory card. The number of recordable image depends on the memory card size, battery life, image size, and compression.

Macro Zoom
You can pull subjects even closer than the closest point possible with the wide-angle setting by using 3x digital zoom, and capture dramatic close-ups.

Selectable Focus Icon
When using 11-area AF, the camera automatically determines the most appropriate AF area from the eleven points. This ensures accurate focusing even for difficult compositions. You can also select the AF setting from Face AF, AF Tracking or 1-area AF. With the DMC-FH27, you can select the icon from among 6 types that appears when the shutter button is pressed half-way.

Select from 3 Aspect Ratios
The aspect ratio for the DMC-FH27 can be easily selected from 16:9 wide, 3:2 and conventional 4:3 to shoot in the framing aspect that best suits the photo's composition or purpose of use.
