Picture This: Panasonic Lumix That Applies Make Up

By Oonagh Reidy | Friday | 25/03/2011

Its the Lumix that makes you look luminous.

The camera maker's latest release, the DMC-FP7, will lend a hand in making subjects better looking with its Beauty Retouch 'esthetic' [sic] and 'face fixing' functions.

Its make up functionality offers pots of colours of lipstick, blusher and eye shadow and the face fixing whitens teeth and deletes unsightly wrinkles, making those pictured looking like something more like out of Melrose Place than Martin Place.

From the pictures we viewed at the Smarthouse office, the beauty retouches call to mind the retouches made to models by magazines, giving them that eerie mannequin effect. 

Panasonic's nifty device also boasts a 4x optical zoom, LUMIX DC VARIO lens (35mm camera equivalent: 35-140mm), and a 16.1-megapixel high-resolution and a 9x extra optical zoom.

Its 3.5" LCD touch screen allows images to be dragged across the screen, making it ideal for browsing through multiple photos. Its touch zoom playback also allows users to zoom in 16x.

Powered by its high performance venus VI engine, its intelligent resolution eliminates the graininess that results from picture noise and the flatness that sometimes comes with noise reduction. The intelligent resolution minimizes noise to produce sharp, clear images.

The DMC-FP7, however, is not currently available in Australia although the Lumix FX78 which does offer the Beauty Retouch features is available here.
