Huge bang for the buck!

by Todd on 7/4/2006

I've never been into these really small digital cameras because the LCD's were too small and therefore I couldn't seen the icons on the LCD's, and the function buttons were always tiny to the point of being useless. I just received this FX9 as a gift and all I can offer up is praise! The LCD is huge, nearly the entire back of the camera in fact. The icons and messages on the LCD are also nice and large. The camera takes about 10min to get the basics down and the function key's are very easy to use and understand. There are a ton of "big camera" features, literally a list a mile long, or you can put it in "Simple Mode" for quick and easy point and shoot photography. It's about the size of a cell phone, so fits in any pocket with ease. All this and 6 mega pixels! Wow!

Product Overview

2.5" Diagonal High-Resolution LCD for Brighter Viewing. The DMCFX9 features a 2.5" diagonal high-resolution LCD monitor - surprisingly large for such a compact camera. This high-quality, 207,000-pixel display makes it easy to see your subject. For easier viewing when shooting outdoors on a sunny day, press the Power LCD button to boost the backlighting by about 40%.

Easy-to-See, Easy-to-Understand LCD Indications. In addition to displaying the settings in large, easy-to-understand text, the large, 2.5" diagonal screen with 230,000-pixel resolution lets you show up to 25 thumbnail images at once1. This makes it easier to search for, and organize, the photos you take.

Our MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer Helps Eliminate Blurry Pictures. Jitter from shaky hands is one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. We don't expect everyone to have hands of stone when taking pictures--that's why Lumix® cameras help solve the problem of unsteady hands with advanced MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer technology. The DMC-FX9 has a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working--all you'll see are the outstanding results!

Stunning High-Speed AF in a Slim Body Select the AF setting from Spot, 1-point (normal or high-speed), 3-point high-speed, and 5-point. The 1-point normal setting solves the "image-freezing" that used to happen while focusing on fast-moving subjects, and makes them easier to track. Furthermore, the new 1-point high-speed mode slashes conventional AF time to about 1/32. High-speed auto focusing has finally come to the compact digital camera. Plus, the AF Assist Lamp helps when focusing in low lighting.

Super-Fast Shutter Response and MEGA BURST® Consecutive Shooting. Thanks to the Venus Engine™ Plus's release time lag of only 0.008 second3, the FX9 is super-fast. You can snap consecutive shots at 3 frames per second with full resolution. And with Unlimited Consecutive Shooting4, you can keep shooting until the memory card is full.

Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT Lens with 3x Optical Zoom. This slim camera features a 3x optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 35 to 105mm) with 7 elements in 6 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses. The Extended Optical Zoom, which minimizes the image degradation that normally occurs with digital zooming, gives you up to 4x zooming power5. Plus, you can use the 3x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom6 together to produce a maximum of 12x zooming power.
