Features



A Colorful, New, 12. 1 Megapixel,Ultra-slim Compact Camera with 4x Optical Zoom and iA Mode

Futuristic, Flat Design with Folded Optics Technology The flat body and compact size of the DMC- FP1 allow it to fit nicely into a small handbag. Built of high-quality aluminum, the DMC- FP1 also brings a wide range of colors to the series. Choose from 8 colors. The new lens cover both protects the lens from scratches or dusts and serves as the camera's power switch, making it fast and easy to slip the camera out of a pocket or a bag and turn on the power.


4x Optical Zoom / Up to 7.8x Extra Optical Zoom

The DMC-FP1 has a 4x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 35-140mm) and 7.8x Extra Optical Zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 273mm)*1. Adding the Extra Optical Zoom to the 4x digital zoom*2 extends the total zooming power to a maximum of 31.3x.


Sonic Speed AF

The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-FP1 has a maximum speed of approx. 0.33 second for auto focusing*. It includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.
* Using the 1-area AF, at the wide-end.


HD Movie Recording (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion Format)

The DMC-FP1 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings. The DMC-FP1 can also record full-size motion images in WVGA (848 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) or standard motion images in VGA (640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels at 30 fps).


Venus Engine IV

The image-processing engine, Venus Engine IV, uses advanced signal processing to give you beautiful images even when the sensitivity is high. Multi-task signal processing is employed for all images to enable high-speed, high-performance shooting. Venus Engine IV also effectively raises the precision of various functions, such as MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Intelligent ISO Control. Along with its extremely high performance, Venus Engine IV reduces power consumption thanks to a number of energy efficiency improvements.


Extended Battery Life

The energy-saving Venus Engine IV image-processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FP1. This lets users take approx. 300 shots on a single battery charge*. * Based on the CIPA standard.

DMC-FP1K is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Always carry in my pocket I own other digital cameras, but sometimes it's not practical to carry them. This one is truly a 'pocket' camera. I take it everywhere, and when I want to catch a shot I would have missed with the cameras that are packed away, I can get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing camera This camera takes amazing photos in wide variety of environments. Due to its size it is possible to have it always ready in hand, and with its metal body it is no problem to carry it even without carrying case. Colors are just amazing, photo quality is very high and it is quite possible to get a superb photo quality directly from the camera, without any PC modifications. View angle of the LCD is amazing, and when supported with (small) tripod, it is possible to take breath-taking pictures of landscape or even some macros. Only thing I found with really huge magification on pictures taken with maximum zoom against backlit scenes is small but noticeable color fringing. When taking pics with zoom 1-3, there is almost none (= I was not able to find any) in the same conditions and barrel distortion on these zooms is virtually non-existent. Excellent, fast, light and durable (survived a fall on ground) camera.
