Panasonic LUMIX FP8

The Panasonic LUMIX FP8 is a digital camera that supports 12.1 megapixels resolution still image output, a 28 mm wide-angle, 4.6x Leica DC lens with folding optics that is encased in a compact form factor. The FP8 also features advanced functions including high-speed Auto Focus (AF) and Panasonic's Intelligent Auto (iA) suite of technologies. The auto focus and a start-up time of 0.95 seconds, gives the FP8 a fast response time from power on to image capture. The iA feature now includes POWER Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) which has double the repression power compared to the previous image stabilization system, MEGA O.I.S. The hand-shake generated when pressing the shutter button, or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed, is minimized by the POWER O.I.S. to help reduce blurry photos.

  • How do you recover lost pictures for the Lumix dmc-fp8

    I bought this camera, new, several weeks ago, then went to my Dad's 75th bday party and took lots of pictures. I took some on the 29th, 30th, and July 1st. Upon viewing the ones from the party on the 30th, I noticed the date was set incorrect, so I changed it. I went on taking pictures the next day. Later, when trying to share them with family, I discovered that the pictures from the 29th (some) and July 1st (bday party) were GONE!!! I did not delete them. I did change the battery on the 1st, but nothing unusual. Any ideas?
