The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37 Digital Camera (Black) has an ultra slim body - yet it contains a professional quality 5x wide angle zoom lens that is equivalent to a 25-125mm lens in 35mm terms permitting you to easily capture a large group of people, or expansive architectural structures and landscapes with dynamic width and rich perspective. The telephoto end of the cameras zoom can also be extended an additional 8.9x (when shooting 3 megapixels or less) with minimal loss of image quality thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom feature. The top quality Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens also provides an ingenious combination of two anti blur systems (MEGA O.I.S and Intelligent ISO control), ensuring that you'll get consistently sharp and bright images, regardless of the shooting situation. Furthermore, the Venus Engine IV advanced image-processing engine can record at a sensitivity setting as a high as ISO 1600, providing fast camera functioning, and keeps power usage down so you can keep shooting pictures all day.

The DMC-FX37 has a bright, high resolution LCD display that measures 2.5" diagonally so you can easily frame your shots and then review and share your pictures with family and friends. The cameras controls are also very intuitive with a logical mode dial, a one-touch function button to quickly access commonly used menu selections, and a slew of scene modes for getting the best possible exposure, without the need to manually adjust all of the camera settings. In addition, the camera is extremely energy efficient, so the included lithium-ion battery can provide 300 shots on a single charge.

10.0 Megapixel Resolution

With a resolution of 10.0 megapixels, you'll be able to easily produce high resolution images that can yield photo quality 20 x 30" prints. The camera also has resolution options that are available in three different aspect ratios - 16:9 for displaying on a wide screen monitor or TV, 3:2 for making standard photo album prints, and 4:3 for more traditional image dimensions common in picture frames

5x Optical Zoom Wide-angle Lens

The DMC-FX37 is equipped with an impressive wide angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens (25-125mm equivalent) with a fast aperture (f/2.8-5.9) that incorporates multiple aspherical lenses, including an Extra High Refractive Index Aspherical Lens (EA Lens). The 25mm wide-angle capability lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective

Slim & Stylish Design

The DMC-FX37 is a remarkably slim and super-stylish camera that features a distinctive finish. Its cool design and light weight make it easy to take with you everywhere you go, just like a fashion accessory, for even more photographic fun

Intelligent Image Stabilizer

Image blur is commonly caused by either movement of the camera or movement of the subject. Camera movement is corrected with the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) feature which uses built-in gyro-sensors to detect the smallest camera movement and instantaneously shifts a lens element in the opposite direction to compensate, giving you sharp, clear images without deterioration. Motion blur - caused when a subject moves as the shot is being taken - is minimized with Intelligent ISO Control. This system actually detects whether the subject is moving and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to minimize the motion blur effect while maintaining good exposure.Additionally, a Blur Indicator lets you confirm that the camera is precisely detecting hand-shake and motion blur separately

High Sensitivity with Intelligent ISO Control

The High Sensitivity mode increases the equivalent ISO sensitivity range of the camera to an incredible ISO 1600-6400 - making it possible to take sharp, blur-free shots of active children or pets even in indoor settings with limited light, or without a flash. The Intelligent ISO uses advanced subject-motion detection circuitry to sense when your subject is moving and raises the camera's ISO sensitivity and shutter speed settings accordingly. This suppresses motion blur and also makes it easy to shoot scenes with fast moving action

Face Detection for Superb Portraits

The Face Detection function can detect up to 15 faces in a scene then automatically adjust the camera settings to make sure faces appear well-lit and in focus. This advanced technology will even automatically readjust the settings if the positions of the subjects change while you are framing the shot

Intelligent Scene Selector

Just turn the dial to "iA" and say good-bye to complicated settings. The camera will not only help eliminate blurring from hand-shake or subject movement, but it will also initialize the Face Detection system and automatically select the focus, exposure and scene modes for the best results. In fact, the Intelligent Auto Mode automatically begins focusing even before you press the shutter button, so you'll never miss a great shot

Super-Fast Shutter Response and Consecutive Shooting

The DMC-FX37 is fast and responsive - thanks to the Venus Engine IV processor. The camera has an extremely fast shutter release time lag of 0.005 second, so you won't miss that "perfect" moment, while the time between shots is also very quick at 0.9 seconds (without flash). The Venus Engine IV also enables high ISO to minimize motion blur and take pictures under low lighting without the need for a mood-killing flash. Furthermore, the advanced processor enables fast, and continuous shooting at a rate of 2.5 frames per second at all resolution settings with a High speed burst of 9 frames per second (lower resolution only) - an incredibly useful feature when shooting sports or other fast paced events

Versatile Auto Focus Options

Choose from five focus methods to match the shooting conditions of your subject. The 9-point AF prevents the camera from mistakenly focusing on the area between two subjects in a vertical composition, 3-point high-speed AF has the same advantage as the 5-pint AF but allows the AF system to function much more rapid, 1-point high-speed AF further reduces the AF time, 1-point AF eliminates screen freeze while maintaining particularly fast AF, and finally Spot AF keys the focus to a small area within the frame for extremely accurate focus on a single subject

Mode Dial & Mode Position Display

Using the Mode Dial on the camera activates the mode position display consisting of animated icons that are displayed on the cameras LCD - making it easy to find the mode you want. This single, easy-to-understand mode dial lets you easily switch between shooting, viewing, and printing

Easy-to-use Scene Modes

The DMC-FX37 has a host of scene modes to provide the best overall image quality for common shooting situations, such as Portrait, Sports, Scenery, Night Scenery, and more. It is easy to select the best scene mode thanks to the Scene Mode list display and help screen, which shows the description of each mode on the LCD monitor, and animated moving icons make mode selection even easier and more fun

High-Definition Motion Images and HD Output

Record beautiful full-size QuickTime Motion JPEG movies in HD Video Format or 16:9 Wide VGA format at up to 30 fps with enhanced picture quality and brightness, and it can also shoot standard VGA and QVGA resolution for home use or e-mail/web applications. The length of recording time depends on the capacity of the SD/SDHC Memory Card (Up to 2 GB per motion image recording). The camera also provides HD Video Output so you can view your HD movies as they were intended - right out of the camera

Function Button for Quick and Easy Setting Adjustment

The Function Button provides a shortcut to frequently used menu settings - this single button lets you turn consecutive shooting on/off, make white balance adjustments, set the ISO sensitivity and image size, and select the compression format, while you continue to view your subject on the LCD

Built-in and Expandable Memory

The camera includes 27MB of built-in memory, and the memory capacity can be expanded dramatically with Secure digital (SD) or Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards. You can also copy images from a memory card or PC to the built-in memory, and view them on the LCD anytime you like

Large 2.5" High-resolution LCD

The DMC-FX37 features a 2.5" diagonal high-resolution (230,000 pixels) LCD monitor which is surprisingly large for such a compact camera. This high-quality, display makes it easy to see your subject, and when shooting outdoors on a sunny day, press the Power LCD button to boost the backlighting by about 40% for easier visibility.
