The Venus Engine IV also supports a High Sensitivity mode that lets the DMC-FS10 record at a setting of up to ISO 6400, sensitive enough to capture subjects in near-total darkness without using a flash.*4

Intelligent auto finds the optimum mode for every scene automaticallyThe iA(Intelligent Auto) mode for making every photographer to be a good photographer
Panasonic incorporated the Intelligent Auto mode in pursuit of the ultimate ease of operation and the reduction of misshots. This mode is of course comes with the new FS33/FS30.

Intelligent Scene Selector, which automatically selects whichever of 6 scene modes -- Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and newly added Sunset - that best suits the shooting situation. The Quick AF system allows the camera to keep focus on the subject while the camera is in recording mode even before without pressing a shutter button halfway, to get best result out of a shutter chance because the focus is always near the subject and the AF time is minimized.
The user can activate all of these useful, convenient shooting-assist functions by simply pressing an dedicated iA button on the top of the camera. All these make the FS10 the ultimate, super-versatile automatic camera for capturing clear, beautiful, mistake-free photos with ease.

A rich variety of scene modes make it easy to get beautiful photos in a range of photographic situations.

    I bought this to replace a Sony Cybershot W70, which dropped out of my pocket while hill climbing. I liked the Sony, but my new Panasonic Lumix FS10 is absolutely superb. I especially wanted a lightweight, slim camera that I can put in a trouser pocket - and this camera fits the bill. I have just come back from a holiday and viewed the photos that I took on my computer and on my TV (for which a connector is supplied) - the images are superb. Even those taken at 0.3mp are very good. The 28mm wide angle lens is excellent, as is the optical image stabiliser. The quality of the videos is exceptional and the 2.7" LCD screen is extremely clear. I would quite like to have had an optical viewfinder, but these are becoming increasingly rare. It would also have been nice to have had a recharging cradle into which the camera could be placed after use, rather than have to remove the battery for charging, but the Sony was the same in this respect. Altogether a superb camera.

    What can I say about this awesome camera? I wanted one that was small and lightweight and able to produce good pictures. This was the perfect choice.

    It has many different shooting modes to choose from which are easy to select and you'll find one to suit most weather conditions/activities/purposes. For each mode, there's a quick summary of what it does - helpful when trying to find the best one to use.
    It's quick to set up as soon as you open the box. Although it doesn't come with a memory card, you can buy them quite cheap from most places and the camera also has in-built memory, for when the SD card is full (40mb I think it is). Once the battery pack is charged (which didn't take long at all) the camera is ready to go.

    Highly recommended!

    This seems a great little camera easy to use and small enough to carry around. It does video, up to 15 mins at a time so I don't need another video camera. I have the 8GB memory which is plenty.

    This is a great Camera, and I've always wanted a Lumix. Although this is a mid range, I didn't expect too much from it, based on its price. But I'm happy to say it is much better than I thought it would be. The HD video is really good and the picture quality is also great, except in darker conditions I've noticed some noise on the images. Not too much of an issue as it's still a decent picture. In good light conditions its perfect!

    Clear and easy to use menu screen, good in low light, rapid shutter setting is good but not as rapid as digital SLRs, haven't printed from this camera yet but photos on laptop look great.
    The functions are not overcomplicated and the camera is screen, buttons and battery/memory card holder seem quite sturdy.
    Overall - really pleased with this purchase :)

    A great camera, i searched around a lot before deciding on this camera,it takes great photos and video.However, i purchased the recommended sandisk sdhc card, and when videoing the camera would only video about 10/15 seconds.
    I tracked the issue down to the 'class'(speed) of memory card.The sandisk is a class 2 and the camera needs class 6.Having now purchased a samsung + double speed sdhc(which is class 6) all appears well.So would have been 5 stars, but as a novice i had no idea that memory had different classes ! hope this helps
