I got this camera from Argos when the new model was bought out on special offer at half price for just £75! I have taken it on 2 snowboarding holidays and used it extensively since.
I have been astonished at how good that it is overall- the picture quality is great and it takes very good shots in general. I have blown up pictures on a 50 inch plasma screen and the 7.2 megapixel definition and detail is impressive.
The camera is very easy to use, there is a simple wheel with picture icons to designate the kind of picture settings that you want (e.g video, automatic, close up).
It has all the usual camera functions and settings as well as individual optimisation settings for particular conditions such as snow.
The video function is good although there is no sound recording-nonetheless for the money this added functionality is impressive and I have made various snowboarding videos which look good. again I have seen these on a large tv and video definition is impressive.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS75 is a digital camera that features an Intelligent Image Stabilization system with MEGA O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO Control. It incorporates superb optical 3x zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm on a 35mm film camera) LUMIX DC VARIO lens. Having the exterior carefully redesigned, the DMC-LS75 offers higher grade profile while pursuing the compactness of the units.
The DMC-LS75 incorporates the Intelligent Image Stabilization system. This system comprises two features - Mega O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO Control - that together make it easy to capture beautiful photos every time you shoot. Now recognized as a must-have feature for digital cameras, Mega O.I.S. compensates for the effects of hand-shake, making it possible to capture clear, crisp photos indoors, at night, or when taking macro close-ups - situations in which hand-shake is most likely to be a problem. Even Mega O.I.S., however, cannot suppress the motion blur caused by a subject moving as the photo is being snapped. That's where Intelligent ISO Control comes in. In this system, the camera's Venus Engine III image-processing engine detects whether the subject is moving and, as necessary, raises the ISO setting and shutter speed according to how fast the subject is moving and the light conditions. This happens automatically, so you can shoot without the bother of adjusting settings every time conditions change. Lumix and its powerful Intelligent Image Stabilization system do all the work automatically. You enjoy easy, trouble-free shooting in any situation and get the satisfaction that comes with capturing clear, beautiful images.
The DMC-LS75 offers a range of features that enhance usability and add convenience. The Easy Zoom feature shifts the lens instantly to full 3x zoom power at the touch of a dedicated button. The new Quick Setting function lets you quickly and easily access and set the functions used most often. With the new Date Stamp function, you can simply stamp the date on photos or you can take advantage of two original Lumix features. When traveling, you can stamp the day of the trip on the photos you take. Or, if you have a baby, you can stamp his or her age in months on your photos. The stamped information appears on photos that you print yourself at home or have printed at a photo shop.
The DMC-LS75 will surely be ideal tool for shooting beautiful pictures easily in any situations thanks to the incorporation of Intelligent Image Stabilization.
