The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 (FZ45) comes with a 24x optical zoom that gives you a great range of shooting ability from a 35mm film equivalent ultra wide-angle focal length of 25mm to a super telephoto focal length of 600mm. At 600mm, with its wide-open aperture of f/5.2, the FZ40 still produces stunning portraits with softly focused backgrounds while at 25mm, you can achieve about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. Not only do you have the reach but thanks to the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), the Panasonic FZ40 nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. and ensures that image quality resulting from the high-resolution 14.1 megapixels 1/2.33-inch CCD image sensor is optimised.
The FZ40 is also very easy to use. For simple opera Show More
