Beyond my expectations. Great camera

 

I used this camera for the first time when I was on vacation. The pictures came out great, didn\'t think that it would be so easy to use. Had some difficulties with some of the settings for playback, but all in all a great camera.

Product Specifications

The DMC-FH3 features a 28mm wide-angle 5x optical zoom f/2.8-6.9 LUMIX DC VARIO lens into a compact body. Comprising 6 elements in 5 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses with 5 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body yet achieving exceptional optical performance. The DMC-FH3 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens. The extra optical zoom function uses the center part of the CCD to extend this 5x zoom ratio to powerful 10.5x zoom at a resolution of 3-megapixel or less. Adding the extra optical zoom to the 4x digital zoom extends the total zooming power to a maximum of 42x.
