Panasonic DMC-FH1K LUMIX 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera (Black)

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
28mm Wide Lens with 5X Optical Zoom. Intelligent Auto with Mega OIS automatically adjusts to ensure great photos under any condition. High Speed AF - Quickly focus in on the action

28mm Wide-angle 5x Optical Zoom Lens with f/2.8 Brightness

The DMC-FH1 features a newly developed 28mm wide-angle* 5x optical zoom f/2.8-6.9 LUMIX DC VARIO lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-140mm) into a compact body. Comprising 6 elements in 5 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 5 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body yet achieving exceptional optical performance

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. * Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

The DMC-FH1 has a 5x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-140mm) and 9.8x Extra Optical Zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 274mm)*1. Adding the Extra Optical Zoom to the 4x digital zoom*2 extends the total zooming power to a maximum of 39.2x.
*1 At a resolution of 3-megapixel or less. In the DMC-FH1, image resolution is kept at its maximum size to the optical tele-end even if the Extra Optical Zoom is ON.
*2 As digital magnification increases, resolution significantly decreases.

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Shake Detection

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)* in the DMC-FH1 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 IV 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. * MEGA O.I.S. is automatically turned on in iA Mode and can be turned on or off in Normal Picture Mode or some Scene Modes.

Sonic Speed AF

The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-FH1 (has a maximum speed of approx. 0.35 second for auto focusing*. It includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.

Extended Battery Life

The energy-saving Venus Engine IV image-processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FH1. This lets users take approx. 310 shots on a single battery charge*. * Based on the CIPA standard.

Dimensions: 3.87 x 2.17 x 0.92 in

Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-FH1K LUMIX 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera (Black) (PNDMCFH1K)

4 out of 5 stars   Great Camera for the price!
By Nutty Czech (Newton, KS) August 12, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-FH1K LUMIX 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera (Black) (PNDMCFH1K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
Cons:
Other Comments: Great Camera for the price! Little downfall about the camera is I found out during operation of recording you're not able to change your zoom on any of the resolution settings. Found generic batteries for a great deal that allow longer usage of the camera also! Micro SD card fits perfect and able to shoot 1800 pictures with full quality (8 min 50 s on HD movie quality)! Image stabilization works well with your personal settings however Intelligent Auto feature works better with stabilization on. Overall I am very satisfied with the camera and it is quite rugged. I've been lucky so far as to where on the camera the fall occured and its still working great!
