Excerpt: On the lookout for a consistent performing pocket zoom offering point and shoot simplicity and decent results without the need to spend a king's ransom? Panasonic is normally a reliable first stop. The 16.1 effective megapixel, 4x optical zoom Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS18 is one of two new slim-line pocket shooters from the brand for 2011, the other being the 14.1 megapixel FS16 which naturally sits just below it in the 'FS' (fashionable and stylish) range.
Excerpt: Panasonic point and shoots offer consistency of output and a user-friendly feature set that in combination means that little if anything needs to be done post-capture to get images looking their best. A case in point is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS18, new to its ‘Fashionable and Stylish’ range with an £159.99 asking price.

Grazie alla modalità iA (Intelligent Auto) vengono compensati i movimenti involontari causati dal tremolio della mano.
