LUMIX DMC-LF1 The Superior Camera Choice For Challenging Shooting Conditions

3.    The Large 1/1.7-inch 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine  The LF1 integrates a large 1/1.7-inch, 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor which is larger in size than standard digital compact cameras. Thanks to the extensive light receiving area of each cell, the performance of image recording in low light is superior with its excellent wide dynamic range. The result is a high resolution image with stunning clarity not only in high sensitivity recording but also in low ISO settings reproducing rich gradation with the exquisitely wide dynamic range even when there is a great deal of contrast in the subject.

The high performance image processor Venus Engine also boasts advanced signal processing. The Venus Engine enables deliberate noise reduction processing without missing low-frequency noise by searching a large detection area to achieve high sensitivity image recording even at ISO 12,800. In addition, Edge Smoothing NR technology helps render smooth edges even at high ISO settings.

The high speed digital signal output technology is integrated to realize high speed consecutive shooting at 10 fps in full resolution with mechanical shutter and to record full-HD 60i (NTSC) smooth video in AVCHD/MP4*. It also contributes to the high speed Sonic Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities. In addition, the high speed burst shooting at 60 fps is available to capture subject with fast motion**.  * 30p (NTSC) MP4 recording. ** In max.2.5-megapixel (4:3), 3-megapixel (3:2), 3.5-megapixel (16:9) and 2-megapixel (1:1)

4.    Creative Panorama & Creative Control / Creative Retouch The LF1 is also equipped with popular Creative Control and Creative Retouch featuring a total of 15 filter effects – Retro, Expressive, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect, Star Filter, Cross Process, Soft Focus, One Point Color and Old Days. The Creative Control lets users shoot with a filter effect while checking how it makes a difference in the picture, which can also be used for video recording, too*. The Creative Retouch enables applying a filter effect on the picture even after shooting in camera.

With the Creative Panorama function, it is possible to apply filter effect of Retro, Expressive, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Star Filter, Cross Process, Soft Focus, One Point Color and Old Days to the horizontal / vertical panoramic image, which can be shot by sweeping the camera in any four directions – to the right, left, top or bottom.
  • Soft Focus and Star Filter cannot be used in video recording.

5.    Get More Inspired with Specialty Functions  A variety of advanced functions are equipped with LF1 to spur more interest of step-up users in photography. Manual control is easy thanks to the Control Ring, which enables direct, intuitive control over frequently-used settings – zooming, aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and filter of Creative Control / Creative Panorama. To assist learning photography, Composition Guide is also available in LF1. It is easy to shoot a photo with great composition by just choosing most suitable pattern of composition from- Rule of Thirds Offset, Diagonal Lines, Tunnel, Radiation1, Radiation2 and S-shape - and framing the subjects along the guided lines. Furthermore, LF1 is equipped with Level Gauge to detect the horizontal / vertical angle of view using its internal level working with the acceleration sensor. This is helpful to keep horizontal composition precisely even when shooting at a high or low angle.

6.    Shoot, View, Share Images in More Flexible Way with Wi-Fi® Connectivity with NFC  The LF1 integrates a Wi-Fi® connectivity (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. The NFC allows "Touch & Share" in which users can connect the camera to their smartphone/tablet anywhere at one touch to share an image easily right on the spot by just pairing the two devices. What is new is that the setup is extremely easy and finishes within seconds, making it possible to pair the camera directly to the smartphone/tablet without connection procedure of information input for authorization.

With a smartphone/tablet, remote shooting of both photo and video is available by using the smartphone/tablet for a remote shutter with a monitor which displays live at a smooth 30 fps. Not only the shutter release, but also zooming, focusing and settings of shutter speed, aperture, and exposure compensation are all controllable with a smartphone/tablet.
