The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 is a 12.1-megapixel camera that promises 18x optical zoom, less blurry photos with its enhanced Power O.I.S (Optical Image Stabiliser), AVCHD Lite high-definition (HD) video recording capability, and even manual operation for advanced users.
The camera also comes with Panasonic’s Intelligent Auto mode that features an advanced Face Recognition function for extra convenience. Face Recognition – a function which ‘remembers’ faces – now allows registration of up to three face images per person, to raise the detection accuracy.
Panasonic Australia’s Product Manager for Lumix Digital Still Cameras, Tanya Mudge said, “The LUMIX FZ35 is an exceptional product that gives the photographer creative scope in both still and video shooting, yet it is still easy to use with features such as Panasonic’s popular Intelligent Auto (iA) mode. Users can take advantage of the powerful super-zoom to capture crisp and clear subjects at a distance thanks to incredible new technologies such as POWER O.I.S, and can record top-quality videos longer in High Definition with AVCHD Lite.”
The new Lumix DMC-FP8 is aimed at consumers who want a camera that they can carry at all times. Its body is made out of aluminium and promises a start up time of less than a second to capture the moment. Also included in this camera is the new Power Optical Image Stabiliser, High-Speed Auto Focus, and a 2.7-inch screen.

Lumix DMC-FZ35: $769
Lumix DMC-ZR1: $549
