HD snapping comes to Panasonic

The Lumix range expands

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

High-definition photographs are the order of the day for Panasonic’s latest Lumix digicam, the 8.1-megapixel DMC-FS3.

The FS3 snapper can capture images at a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080, but it’s a shame Panasonic makes no mention of an HDMI port on the camera, becuase the lack of one means it’ll be more difficult to get your pictures from the camera and onto an HD TV.

Panasonic's FS3: can snap at 1920 x 1080

You’ll still be able to view images on the camera’s 2.5in LCD display and the manufacturer’s included several image display features, which should help bring your otherwise dull snaps to life. For example, slideshows can be created and backed with one of several pre-installed musical backgrounds, such as swing or urban. There are 21 scene modes as well, such as night mode, to help make the most of your pictures.

A 3x optical zoom is onboard the FS3 and it also has a top ISO sensitivity of 6400, which Panasonic claims is intelligently controlled through a specialist feature that both detects and suppresses motion blur. This is in addition to the camera’s standard anti-shake technology.

The camera ships with 50MB of internal memory, but also accepts SDHC memory cards.

Availability and pricing details for the Lumix DMC-FS3 haven’t been released from Panasonic’s grip yet. But, we do know you’ll get to choose between a silver, black blue or pink body.
