Hey there I'm Josh Goldman senior editor with CNET and if -- in the market for a fast camera with some -- zoom. They can still slip in a small pocket.
You'll want to check this out.
It's Panasonic's Lumix DMC -- seven.
And in a body that's less than an inch thick it has an ultra wide angle lens with a ten X optimism.
-- high res three inch LCD on back and -- speedy fourteen megapixel mos sensor.
Now that sensor supports full HD movie capture at sixty -- in AV CHD but it'll also shoot MP four format to.
I as well as some multi shot modes for high dynamic range in hand held night shots.
It also has Panasonic's light speed AF system.
Which combined with its sensor and processors -- you shoot fast.
With a low shutter lag and shot to shot times and -- can bird shoot with auto focus something you won't find on most other cameras in its class.
Photo quality is very good too but I wouldn't expect to do much enlarging -- heavy cropping.
Also its battery life is pretty short and it's charged by USP in camera so if you get a second battery you'll have to plan ahead.
But otherwise for its price it's really quite nice.
I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Panasonic -- exam.
