The Ultimate Hybrid Stylish Digital Camera DMC-FX700 with F2.2 Super Bright 24mm Ultra Wide Angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON Lens*. Featuring 1920x1080 Full HD Movie Recording in AVCHD
*35mm camera equivalent: 24-120mm

DMC-FX700 packs a host of advanced functions in a slim, stylish body. The DMC-FX700 is now truly a hybrid camera that records high quality 1920x1080 full HD movie in AVCHD. The 14.1-megapixel DMC-FX700 also features F2.2 super bright 24mm ultra wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens with 5x optical zoom* to make the camera even more versatile from shooting dynamic landscapes to the moving subject in low-lit situations such as indoors or at night.

The iA (Intelligent Auto) mode now comprehends Motion Deblur mode** and Intelligent Burst mode. The Motion Deblur mode is available by updating the motion detection (Intelligent ISO Control) and brightness control (Intelligent Exposure) to gain as high shutter speed as possible. Combined with the outstanding brightness of the lens and the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), the DMC-FX700 thoroughly prevents any kind of blur - whether the blur is caused by a handshake or the subject's motion. The new Intelligent Burst mode determines the frame rate in the burst shooting according to the speed of subjects motion. The POWER O.I.S., Face Recognition, Face Detection, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure work appropriately just by entering the iA mode for any user to take beautiful photos with maximum ease.

Intuitive Touch-Control Shooting on the Large, Easy-to-see LCD

The DMC-FX700 adopts full touch-screen operation. AF is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the 3.0-inch large, 230,000-dot LCD and you can even release the shutter. Zooming is also controlled with touch operation. With a 3.0-inch large Intelligent LCD offers full touch control and easy view both in shooting and playing back images. You can set the menu and focus on the intended subject and release the shutter all with a touch. For advanced creative freedom, A/S/M mode is available to set shutter speed and aperture that best express the photographers intention.
*Equivalent to 35mm camera: 24-120mm.
**The picture size may be reduced.


The Super Bright F2.2 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON Lens with 24mm Ultra Wide-Angle and 5x Optical Zoom

The DMC-FX700 packages a high quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens that boasts an astonishing brightness of F2.2, extraordinary for a slim, stylish digital compact cameras. The F2.2 lens is about 1.6x brighter than the F2.8 lens, itself generally considered a bright lens. It lets DMC-FX700 shoot at higher shutter speed and capture stunningly clear, sharp, blur-free images in lower lighting situation. Together with the anti-blurring function in the iA mode, DMC-FX700 never allows any subject to be blurred. This advanced lens also makes it easy to produce beautiful photos with pleasing soft background focusing thanks to the shallow depth of field provided by the extra light.

Also, the 24mm ultra-wide-angle lens - rare on a compact camera - gives photographers a wider range of composition possibilities with approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to that of 35mm camera. The super-high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens minimizes distortion at the wide end.

Thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-FX700 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even using a digital zoom. This means the 5x optical* can virtually extend to 6.5x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 10.5x (at 3-megapixel resolution) by using the center part of the 14.1-megapixel high resolution MOS sensor to bring subjects even closer.
*Equivalent to 35mm camera: 24-120mm.


Enjoy 1920x 1080 Full HD Movie Recording in AVCHD with the Advanced iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

The DMC-FX700 has recording capability of AVCHD movie in 1920x1080 full HD despite its slim, stylish body.

The 5x optical zoom is available in movie recording, too. With the Video Divide function, users can divide the video into two sections to shorten or delete the unwanted part on the spot in the camera. You can cut out a clear still image from a movie in the camera thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. A Wind Cut function is also available to block out most of the noise from background wind. A host of options enhances the usability and fun of recording high quality full HD movie.
Continuous recording exceeding 2GB is not possible when recording motion. Remaining time for continuous recording is displayed on the screen. Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [AVCHD]
Also, use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 6" or higher when recording motion pictures in [MOTION].
*SD Speed Class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.


Redesigned Venus Engine FHD with Even Higher Signal Processing Performance

For the image processor, the new Venus Engine FHD features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities. By separating chromatic noise from luminance noise and applying the optimal noise reduction to each, you can capture clear and beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The Venus Engine FHD also provides precisely selective noise reduction to the chromatic noise without affecting the border of colors which is judged from the brightness level of a pixel. The Intelligent Resolution technology is another feature of the Venus Engine FHD. With the 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, superior noise reduction system of the Venus Engine FHD is applied to make it smoother. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it. As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp in both photo and movie recording. The Intelligent Resolution technology also realizes Intelligent Zoom, which virtually extends the optical zoom ratio to its approx. 1.3x equivalent maintaining the picture quality even combining the digital zoom. Details of an image in high sensitivity recording tend to be lost in the noise reduction process; however, the Intelligent Resolution works to keep them. Linking smoothly with the MOS sensor, the Venus Engine FHD processes a large amount of signal at high speed, making it possible to record high resolution consecutive shots and full HD movie recording.
