 Compact Digital Camera LS6

Compact Digital Camera LS6 - AA Battery Operation with Optical Image Stabilizer for Suppressing Hand-shake Blur

The smart and easy 14.1-Megapixel LUMIX DMC-LS6 features O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode. Taking pictures has never been so simple thanks to Panasonic’s 14.1-megapixel LUMIX DMC-LS6 that features a high quality 26mm wide angle, 5x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equiv: 26-130mm) with F2.8 brightness and O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer). Running on AA batteries, the DMC-LS6 offers an easy-to-hold grip and is fashionably styled with the colour of the lens ring matching the body colour.

 MEGA O.I.S. Anti-blur Technology
26mm Wide Angle, 5x Optical Zoom Lens

The DMC-LS6 boasts a 26mm wide angle, 5x optical zoom high quality lens. The 26mm wide angle lens captures approx. 181% larger viewing space compared with that of standard 35mm camera, which excels in shooting vast landscapes or crowded subjects even at a short distance indoors. The 5x optical zoom draws subjects close without deterioration of image quality unlike using a digital zoom. A lens with F2.8 brightness is a premium feature in this class of camera, and helpful to capture clear images even in dimly lit situations like nighttime or indoors.

O.I.S. and iA Mode for Maximum Results and Minimum Fuss

For those looking for their first digital camera, Panasonic’s LS6 is the perfect option. Packed with a surprising list of features, such as Panasonic’s Optical Image Stabiliser (O.I.S) that is renowned for its high correction performance against blur caused by a hand-shake, the LS6 really has been designed with users in mind. With the most frequent cause of misshot in any camera being handshake, Panasonic believes that O.I.S is indispensable for any LUMIX camera – whether it’s a high end, mind range or entry level camera. In contrast with the digital image stabilizer which is often found in this class of cameras, the optical image stabilizer compensates for the hand-shake more effectively without deterioration of image quality.


In addition to this O.I.S., LUMIX's popular iA (Intelligent Auto) powerfully assists in any shooting situation to get the best result. For example, human faces are captured in focus and appropriate exposure with the Face Detection system. Unwanted red-eyes are digitally corrected and backlight compensation automatically activates in sunny or bright conditions to ensure pictures are clearly and evenly exposed. Intelligent Scene Selector, which automatically selects whichever of 5 Scene Modes - Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery - that best suits the shooting situation. Every user can get all of these useful, convenient shooting-assist functions at a time to enjoy capturing clear, beautiful photos with ultimate ease.

Enjoy HD Video Recording and Share it Effortlessly

The DMC-LS6 even records dynamic HD video in 1,280 x 720p at a smooth 30 fps, in addition to the standard VGA (640 x 480) and QVGA (320 x 240). It is enjoyable to view the video footage as well as the photos on the wide-screen HDTV. Those recorded on the SD Memory Card are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV by simply inserting it into the "VIERA Image Viewer", a built-in SD Memory Card slot on VIERA TV, to playback your contents. Designed with users in mind, it is also possible to sort and archive the images via a bundled software PHOTOfunSTUDIO Ver. 6.0 and upload them to the social networking services such as Facebook or YouTube. With the LS6, users can have confidence that they can capture the moments that matter with ease. The perfect camera for everyday use, the DMC-LS6 is available in a choice of black and pink.

Product Description

Compact Digital Camera LS6 - AA Battery Operation with Optical Image Stabilizer for Suppressing Hand-shake Blur. The Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for blurring caused by hand-shake. Apart from the digital image correction, the Optical Image Stabilizer corrects a jolt of light axis by shifting the lens unit to offset it. Thus the image is not affected digitally nor deteriorated at all. The Optical Image Stabilizer lets you shoot in dimly lit rooms or evening illumination without losing the mood It also works for macro shots and zoom shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. The DMC-LS6 features a 5x optical zoom lens from 26mm wide-angle (35mm equivalent: 26-130mm). The 26mm wide-angle lens captures approx.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality for an inexpensive camera. 30 Sep 2012
Colour Name:Black
I bought this to use as a cheap backup camera, mainly for holidays. I wasn't expecting rocket fired performance (that's why I paid over a grand for a DSLR) but I have been pleasantly surprised by what I have achieved so far.
It is a small and lightweight camera, but it does have a nice lump to grip on the right hand side (no good if you are left handed) and this makes handling quite smooth and easy.
The 'Intelligent Auto' mode works fine for almost everything you do in daylight, but you can switch to the 'scene' modes or even the 'auto' mode (which gives you control of exposure, flash, self timer function).
All in all it is a reasonable camera for this price and the prints will more than satisfy the vast majority of people who buy this camera to use for snapshots and holidays. There is a little sharpness falloff at the corners, but this is the price you pay for a wide angle lens in such a small format. Inside the 'sweet spot' there is good sharpness and colour rendition.
A nice bonus if the movie mode, which actually delivers quite a good performance. You will need a large and fast memory card (as with all cameras that save movie) but is if fun to drop a little movie segment into your holiday blog!
The movie will save in HD if you want it to, but also had VGA and QVGA for use on-line.
Looking at the only other review for this camera makes me think the previous reviewer has been sold a duff camera, and he should sent it back and get a replacement or a refund straight away. Any camera that performs as badly as the one he received is clearly unacceptable (at any price).
I have put up a picture taken with this camera, on holiday in Rome in October, as an example.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good simple camera - Panasonic LS6 20 Mar 2013
By Malc
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I was after a simple camera that took AA batteries and had a reasonable wide angle of view - this ticked the boxes.
In fact that is an understatement - its a fine little camera that is simple to operate and yet has a few handy tricks and user adjustments if yor so inclined. It can do 'auto panaramic' shots, has some white balance and EV adjustments, can work in full auto or allow a bit of control (not I stress on the scale of a 200 camera).
I tried all the settings and went back to 'auto' where it has been ever since - the only lasting change was to set the auto-focus zone to the centre of the frame.
So there we are simple cheap and takes decent pictures as well. Under 40 just makes it a snip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed! 23 July 2013
By M & T
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The camera uses 2xAA batteries, which is what I wanted so that I can use my stock of rechargeable AA batteries. The camera fits very well in the hand and can be used with one hand (right hand) very comfortably. This is not a professional camera, but you get what you pay for and this one is a good value for money. It has a baby setting, which allows you to enter the birth date and when you take photos, it shows their age. It also has most if not all of the settings you would expect from a camera at this level. The photo quality is not always perfect and in certain lighting and conditions it requires some tweaking before making a good shot. It has an intelligent setting, which most of the time, accurately recognises exactly what setting is needed (macro, scene, portrait, night shot, etc.) The zoom is more than sufficient for this range and again this is an amateur camera so beware if you want to make professional photos.
