Point and Shoot cameras make for great devices that can be used to introduce someone to the art of advanced photography. The device, like the Panasonic Lumix DMC is designed to bring together the basics of photography with a hint of how a DSLR camera may function.
The Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera is equipped with a powerful 16.1 MP sensor that can be used to take awesome photos. This sensor is well designed for low light photography as well provided you know how to set the values that will determine the ultimate quality of the clicked picture.
The camera is also equipped with a highly capable lens that can support a zoom level of 21 X in the optical range. The optical zoom is more useful while taking pictures as compared to the digital zoom as it does not cause picture distortions as is seen with digital zoom. The pixels are what get zoomed in the digital zoom function, thereby reducing the overall picture quality.
Stable Does It
This camera comes with an Optical Image Stabilizer that can be used to create steady shots even on unsteady terrain or even when someone with unsteady hands operates the camera.
This camera is also incorporated with the Intelligent Auto mode that can detect the scenes for you. This is highly useful for beginners as it allows them to concentrate more on the focusing rather than handling too many tasks together. The Intelligent Auto Mode can detect the scene and set the values for the perfect shot automatically.
This camera is mainly a point and shoot with advanced functions and a better lens, even then, it comes with manual controls that can be used to learn the workings of phography with manual settings. This camera allows you to set a host of values on your own so that you can experiment with photography as you learn.
You can take HD Videos with the Panasonic Lumix camera and also engage in breathtaking Panorama shots that can unlock the potential of photography in most people.
This camera is also equipped with a 3.0-inch 460 K-dot LCD screen that is rich in detail level. This screen will be highly useful for previews and also serves as the primary viewfinder while taking pictures. This is also highly useful for video playback or even for recording.
