Panasonic DMC-FX150K 14 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera

Price: $213.54
Smart, Stylish Shooting
The stylish and feature-rich DMC-FX150 features a 1/1.72 CCD with 14.7 megapixels, the highest number of effective pixels in the compact digital camera class, and combines it with a bright F2.8 DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. This lens offers high resolution and smooth gradation across the entire focal range, from wide-angle 28mm to 100mm, to depict subjects with exceptional detail and dynamic realism. The use of the Extra Optical zoom also lets you zoom up to 7.7x.
Easy Manual Operation
The DMC-FX150s manual controls and creative-shooting features distinguish it from many of its ultra-compact competitors. For instance, the Manual Exposure mode lets users choose the shutter speed, giving the freedom to render artistic images of ordinary scenes. The multi-exposure function superimposes up to three consecutively shot images
together while the user views the previous image on the LCD, creating a surrealistic effect that cannot be achieved with a single image alone. Furthermore, the manual bracketing function includes typical exposure and adds new color bracketing to capture color, monochromatic and sepia shots of an image simultaneously.

iA Mode Prevents Shooting Mistakes in Any Situation
In addition to manual controls, the FX150 also offers Panasonics Intelligent Auto (iA) mode that provides the user with automatic settings adjustments depending on the shooting environment. A new technology, called AF (auto focus) Tracking, has been added to the iA roster of features. AF tracking enables the camera to lock focus on a moving object. Additionally, AF Tracking increases Face Detection accuracy, allowing for crisp, sharp-focused shots even if the subject moves while shooting the image.
