The FZ35 also features Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode, a suite of intuitive technologies including Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and Face Recognition.

The Panasonic LUMIX FZ35 is a digital camera that features AVCHD Lite, High Definition (HD) video recording capability, a 27mm wide-angle, 18x optical zoom LEICA DC lens and includes motion zoom capabilities. The operational layout of the FZ35 includes a dedicated video record button that performs at capturing both still and motion images while providing optimal operation in either mode. The camera features manual controls and creative options, including: Creative Movie Mode which allows the user to set the shutter speed and aperture manually.

  • What $300US camera has best specs for image quality?

    I am a novice looking to add photography to my list of hobbies. I want to learn how to take great pictures. I want a camera that takes the best possible pictures that $300US money can buy. I'm not sure how to read all the camera specifications or which ones affect image quality. Based on camera specifications, a floating $300US budget, and your expert opinions, what cameras should I be looking at to get some of the best pictures available in that price range? I would rather put less money in options and more into image quality. The camera will begin as a general use/snapshot until my knowledge grows. I want to take great pictures of my 3yr old and various nature/outdoor shots. Thanks!
