Manufacturer's Description

The new Lumix FS35 has exceptional optical performance

New 28mm Wide-Angle Powerful 8x Optical Zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR Lens

The 16.1-megapixel Pansonic Lumix FS35 packages a newly developed 28mm wide-angle high quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 8x optical zoom (1). Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realises an outstandingly slim and compact body yet achieving exceptional optical performance.

The zoom ratio can be extended up to 18x at 3 megapixel resolution mode with minimal deterioration thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom. By using the central part of the 16.1-megapixel high resolution 16.1 CCD, this powerful zooming function allows you to easily capture and magnify distant subjects. To help with these technical aspects, the FS35 has an Easy Zoom button to utilise the powerful zoom with ease and comfort. It shifts the lens instantly to full 8x zoom power at a touch. The second touch of the button activates the 18x Extra Optical Zoom Intelligent Zoom to draw even closer into the subject (3).

Enable beautiful image recording with higher quality signal processing

New 16.1-megapixel High Resolution CCD and High Performance Venus Engine VI

The high-speed, high-performance Venus Engine VI is newly incorporated in both FS models to enable beautiful image recording with higher quality signal processing and now includes Intelligent Resolution technology. With Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas — outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas are automatically detected. The outline parts are enhanced effectively to give edges more clearness while giving a moderate accentuation to the texture areas to look more finely detailed. To the soft gradation part, the superior noise reduction process of the Venus Engine VI is applied to make it smoother. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this innovative technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way and as a result images are naturally clear and crisp.

The multi-task image-processing engine, Venus Engine VI, supports a super-fast response time. The shutter release time lag is as short as approx. 0.005 of a second and the camera's quick response makes it easier to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities together with the Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus) that lets you lock on the subject. The Venus Engine VI also supports a High Sensitivity mode that lets the FS35 records at a setting of up to ISO 6400, sensitive enough to capture subjects in near-total darkness without using a flash (4).

Reduce unwanted shots with the Intelligent Auto mode

The iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode for Every Photographer to Be a Good Photographer

Panasonic incorporated Intelligent Auto mode in pursuit of the ultimate ease of operation and the reduction of misshots. This mode is also further advanced with the inclusion of the AF tracking and Intelligent Exposure feature. With the new AF Tracking function, the user can lock the focus onto a moving subject. The camera then automatically tracks the subject as it moves, keeping it in focus without the user having to hold the shutter button halfway down. This makes it easier to capture the perfect moment clearly and in sharp focus when shooting images of a child, pet, sports or any scene with moving subjects and spur-of-the-moment action.

Intelligent Exposure suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights to capture images that look natural and true-to-life. It now features an automatic backlight compensation function that activates whenever the camera detects that the light source is behind the subject. Intelligent Scene Selector automatically selects whichever of 6 scene modes -- Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset - that best suits the shooting situation. The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses hand-shake and the Intelligent ISO control prevents moving subject to be blurred by optimizing the shutter speed and ISO sensitivity setting, to render sharp, clear images whatever the shooting situation is. In addition, human faces are captured in focus and appropriate exposure with the Face Detection and it also corrects unwanted red-eye digitally.

The user can activate all of these useful functions by simply pressing an independent iA button on the top of the camera and make the FS35 the ultimate, super-versatile automatic camera for capturing clear, beautiful, mistake-free photos with ease.

Record dynamic, beautiful full HD movies

Enjoy Instant Image Sharing with Family and Friends

You can now also enjoy your precious moments instantly with family and friends as each camera features LUMIX Image Uploader, a new way of communication by sharing photo or movies. All you have to do is checkmark the photos you want to share and connect the camera to a PC. Uploading starts just by following the simply instructions, allowing you to add comment and notify your friends via e-mail consequently. Facebook can be used for photos and YouTube for movies.

Technically specified, yet remaining easy to use – the new FS35 even records dynamic HD movie in 1280 x 720p at a smooth 24 fps (FS18) / 30fps (FS16), in addition to normal VGA (640 x 480) in Motion JPEG. All movies can be directly uploaded to YouTube via the uploader software or you can enjoy high quality image playback by simply playing connected or loading the memory card into a wide-screen HDTV for full-screen viewing

Further features to expand the fun and convenience for users include built-in memory of 70MB, an Intelligent LCD which automatically adjusts the screen brightness in 11 steps as the surrounding brightness level changes, ensuring easy visibility at all times plus a total of 28 scene modes, such as ‘Baby’ or ‘Pet’, set most appropriate parameter in wide-ranging situations.

Let me start by saying that I am no expert, and you will find no in-depth analysis of zoom ability or pixel quality here. I only just about know what those things are... I am the most novice of novices and a true fledgling in the world of cameras and photo taking.

What I was looking for was a compact camera that takes a smashing crisp picture of mostly a) a toddler who rarely stays still and b) an excitable jack Russell. I wanted ease of use, and no blurry stuff. A camera that could take a professional looking photo even in inexperienced hands. I have certainly found all of the above in the Panasonic lumix fs35. I had previously returned a Finepix because the pictures just weren't of the quality I expected. Getting a refund and spending a few £'s more was a wise move.

The pictures I have so far taken (all using the intelligent auto option) have been amazingly clear and precise, regardless of lighting, distance or subject. In the absence of using baffling technical jargon, isn't that what we're all looking for from a digital camera?!

I would recommend this fine camera to anyone without hesitation.

Only two small things: 1) the battery life isn't brilliant, remember the charger if you're away for any length of time. 2) treat gently, robust in clumsy hands it is not...

Brought this camera to replace our ageing Fuji camera. The camera is quick to turn on and take pictures, the zoom and focus very quick. We brought a 16Gb card class 10 and the HD video is amazing. With the 16gb card it enables you to tale around 2500 pictures at full resolution. Whilst you cannot use the zoom when filming, you can pre-zoom prior to filming.

The camera has a nice feature of burst frames, enabling you to take multiple pictures in a very short time frame, perfect for those action situations.

Camera fits nicely into your pocket, the red version is the one we got and the colour is very nice.

When taking pictures at night you do have to play with the settings to get it right, the automatic setting sometime is not the best. The camera picks up faces very quickly, ensuring that a good picture is taken.

We are very happy with this camera, the picture quality is great and the 8x zoom is very good especially for this size of camera.

Colour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I've owned the Panasonic Lumix FS30 Digital Camera - Black (14.1MP, 8x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD for awhile now which was the best camera I had owned, that is until now! As someone wanted to buy my FS30 from me, I thought this would give me a great opportunity to upgrade camera's and already I see just how much this camera has improved.

The camera looks extremely smart and has a very nice texture to the touch, the camera's also really light in weight and is remarkably comfortable to hold.

The contents of the box supplies:
*Panasonic FS35 Digital Camera.
*Battery Pack + Battery Case, Battery Charger & AC Mains Lead.
*USB Connection Cable.
*AV Cable.
*Hand Strap.
*CD-ROM which features Software to help run the video format, PHOTOfunSTUDIO & Operating Instructions.

The PHOTOfunStudio, ran fine with my PC which has 2GB RAM with the Operating System of Windows 7.
This program lets you copy your photos straight from your camera to your PC at a decent speed via the USB cable supplied, or you can take out your SD card and put it into a card reader *not supplied, if you wish not to use the software. It also lets you browse your photos/video, make slide-shows, edit photos/video, print pictures, copy to media devices and also an option to upload your video onto YouTube.

This camera, like most others do not come supplied with a memory card, so you will need to buy one for it.

The FS35 camera supports various memory cards ranging from: SD (8MB-2GB), SDHC (4GB-32GB) and SDXC (48GB-64GB).

I got this camera for general photography and also for taking pictures of products I sell online. I've had it about a month and so far it has not disappointed. There are many reviews on here but I thought I would chime in on why this is a good camera for online selling as well as general use:

* The macro setting is good - you can easily switch it on and get a good close up shot from varying distances. Extreme close-ups can be hazy at the edges if you're photographing something with points that are further away from you, but you can play around with angles if you're taking pictures of a static object.
* It has an option to set the type of focus in such a way that you can get it to focus on more than one point. This is a new feature to me, but proves very handy in taking sharp close up shots. I'm still getting to grips with it - at the moment it seems you have to play around with slight variations in angle and distance to get the type of focus you want, but for an autofocus camera this is a pretty handy feature, enabling a little subtle flexibility in the focus. It also means you have some control over the aforementioned haziness at the edges of a macro shot.
* Colour accuracy is pretty good and can be optimised with the white balance settings etc. You may find blues and greens are slightly off, but this seems to be a common issue with digital cameras in general and can be fixed fairly easily with photo editing software if you need to.
* The My Scene setting is good for choosing your preferred camera settings which you can go back to even after you've turned the camera off.
* Good pixel count.
