The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-F3 is designed with simplicity in mind, without overlooking the importance of style and performance. The 12.1 Megapixel camera has an impressive 4x optical zoom. When your subject is far away use the 7.8x Extra Optical Zoom when shooting at 3 Megapixels.
In the Auto Scene Mode, advanced detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. It includes Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to detect faces in the frame and Intelligent Scene Selector to detect scene conditions. In addition, the DMC-F3 includes Digital Image Stabilizer to detect hand-shake and Digital Red-eye Correction (Red-eye Removal) to take care of the red-eye effect that often happens when shooting with a flash.
The LUMIX F3 also records dynamic High Definition video in 1280 x 720p, at a smooth 30fps, in addition to WVGA (848 x 480) and normal VGA (640 x 480). The 2.7″ 230,000-dot resolution LCD is designed so the user can clearly see the subject while shooting still photos and videos. The Panasonic LUMIX F3 is for the casual but frequent photographer who wants a digital camera that is not only small and stylish in design, but that has sophisticated features to help enrich the photo-taking experience.
