Overview

Overview

LUMIX DMC-FH8 16.1 Megapixel Digital Camera

f/2.5 LEICA DC Lens

The DMC-FH8 incorporates a 24-120mm LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens with f/2.5 brightness. The f/2.5 lens is brighter by approx. 25% than the f/2.8 lens which is generally considered a bright lens. It allows the use of higher shutter speed but captures clear, sharp, blur-free images even in lower lighting situation.

The 24mm ultra wide-angle lens* rare on a compact camera gives you a wider range of composition possibilities with approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to that of 35mm camera. The super-high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens minimizes distortion at the wide end.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

* Simulated image.

10x iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom)

The iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) is an extension zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 5x optical can virtually extend to 10x equivalent.

MEGA O.I.S. Shake Detection

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) 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.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. You just press, aim and shoot. The detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos* with maximum ease.

* The applicable iA Mode functions vary with photos and videos.

MP4 HD Video Recording  FH8

The DMC-FH8 can record HD motion images (1,280 x 720 pixels) in MP4 format. A special, dedicated button lets you instantly start recording videos while shooting photos without having to change any settings.

In addition, a digital zoom is available in video recording.

[MP4]

Motion pictures in [MP4] can be recorded continuously for up to 29 minutes 59 seconds. Also, motion picture recorded continuously in [MP4] is up to 4 GB. 

Use a card with SD Speed Class* with "Class 4" or higher when recording videos.

[Motion JPEG]

QuickTime Motion JPEG. For Europe, motion images can be recorded continuously for up to 15 minutes. In Motion Picture Mode, the length of recording time depends on the capacity of the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card. (Up to the equivalent of 2 GB per motion-image recording.) Use a card with SD Speed Class* with Class 6 or higher when recording motion images.

* SD Speed Class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.

The length of recording time depends on the capacity of the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card. SDHC Memory Cards and SDXC Memory Cards can be used only in equipment that is compatible with their respective formats. If the computer being used does not support SDXC Memory Cards, a message prompting you to format may appear. (Doing so will cause recorded images to be erased so do not choose to format.) 

Fun Functions - Shooting

A preset setting function lets the camera automatically make the optimal settings to give you superb images with ease, or to provide you with a variety of artistic possibilities.

Miniature Effect FH8

The Miniature Effect Mode in which the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to look the picture like a diorama.

In Miniature Effect Mode, the video recorded is played back in 10x fast-forwarding making it more comical to watch*.

* Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long)

Panorama Shot

Panorama makes it possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous image.

Fun Functions - Playback

Beauty Retouch Mode

The Beauty Retouch Mode makes it possible to virtually make-up the faces. The Aesthetic Retouch is like going to a beauty salon, and the Foundation and Make-up Retouch are like putting on make-up.

Auto Retouch

The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button. Appropriate retouch is automatically applied depending on the image if the image was shot too dark, it can be clear and bright to look it nicer with this function.

Sonic Speed AF

This gives the camera super high-speed response that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities.

Still Image Recording

It is possible to take still image while recording video simultaneously*

* The picture size is fixed to 3.5-megapixel (16:9)

3.0-inch LCD

The large, 230,000-dot high-resolution LCD serves as a small photo and video viewer, allowing you and friends to enjoy viewing images.

Intelligent LCD

The Intelligent LCD automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions.

4 Aspect Ratios

In addition to 4:3, 3:2, and 16:9, you can shoot with a 1:1 aspect ratio.
