The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700 is a modern digital compact camera, introduced in 2010. Its Leica DC Vario-Summicron 1:2.2-1:5.9/4.3-21.5 aspherical zoom lens covers focal-lengthes from wide-angle to portrait. With max. aperture f2.2 in wide-angle position the lens is quite fast when compared with common f2.8 digicam lenses. Another advantage of that camera is the image series mode to shoot ten 14 Megapixel images in one second. Video captures are possible in fabulous HD-TV resolution 1080x1920 Pixel. Therefore it has an own video release button beside the common big shutter release button. The 3" touch screen on the back ist the only way to reach menues and to manipulate settings.
