Intelligent Auto Mode for One-Touch Beauty
Simply set the 8.1-megapixel DMC-FS3 to iA mode and let the four Intelligent Auto functions team up to help prevent shooting errors. Intelligent Scene Selector chooses the mode that best fits the situation; MEGA Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) helps prevent blurring from hand-shake; Intelligent ISO Control helps prevent motion blur; and Face Detection helps produce clear portraits by optimizing the focus and exposure settings.
33mm Lens with 3x Optical Zoom
The 33mm Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens with 3x optical zoom takes wider shots than an ordinary 35mm lens. This is helpful in small rooms or crowded places, for example, letting you fit more people into a group photo. There's also an Easy Zoom button on the camera top - just press it, and the optical zoom and Extra Optical Zoom instantly extend to full telescopic position. This quick zooming lets you catch even fleeting opportunities.
Simple Design for Easy Shooting and Viewing
With its two basic settings - shoot and play - the FS3 is easy enough for anybody to use. We've also minimized the number of fine settings that need to be made with the cursor button and easy-to-understand settings menu.
Intelligent LCD Adjusts Brightness to Match Surroundings
The brightness and contrast of the large 2.5" diagonal LCD adjust automatically in 10 steps as ambient light conditions change, so images are clear, bright and easy to see day or night, indoors or outdoors.
Catch the Perfect Moment
In Hi-Speed Burst mode, you can snap off a lightning-fast seven shots per second. This makes it easier to catch the perfect action shot of a fast-moving subject.
