Excellent Camera, Great Value

 

I've owned many "cheap" digital cameras; Fuji and Canon. They all broke for various reasons within about a year. I just wanted a simple little camera that is easy to carry around, and one that was also mechanically simple, in hopes it might hold up a...

Fantastic picture quality. I also have a Canon DSLR, and this sounds odd but this inexpensive camera seems to take better pictures ; Very compact - will fit in any pocket ; No protruding lens mechanism to eventually break, making the camera an instant...

Can't think of any cons at all, especially for the great price I bought it for on Newegg

Good little camera

 

This camera will fit my needs quite well. I wanted a very small compact camera that didn't cost much.

I wanted a small camera to take on the road to take simple snapshots and short video to document problems for warranty and to send to engineers. This camera fit that perfectly. The lens does not extend when the camera is turned on so there is less...

Noise starts to show at 400 but photos are still viewable at 1600 but wouldn't want to print any larger than 4X6. Not as sharp a lens as I hoped but for $140 it is pretty good

Product Specifications

The flat body and compact size of the DMC-FP1 allow it to fit nicely into a small handbag. The DMC-FP1 is built of high-quality aluminum. The lens cover both protects the lens from scratches or dusts and serves as the camera's power switch, making it fast and easy to slip the camera out of a pocket or a bag and turn on the power. The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-FP1 has a maximum speed. It includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes. The DMC-FP1 can record motion images in high-definition. The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings. The DMC-FP1 can also record full-size motion images in WVGA or standard motion images in VGA and QVGA. The image-processing engine, Venus Engine IV, uses advanced signal processing to give you beautiful images even when the sensitivity is high. Multi-task signal processing is employed for all images to enable high-speed, high-performance shooting. Venus Engine IV also effectively raises the precision of various functions, such as MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Intelligent ISO control. Along with its extremely high performance, Venus Engine IV reduces power consumption thanks to a number of energy efficiency improvements. The energy-saving Venus Engine IV image-processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable Lithium-ion battery which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FP1.
