Panasonic Lumix DMC-S3 Preview

By

panasonic_s3_blk_550.jpgPanasonic has rolled out an all new line of "Smart" and intuitive compact digicams, with the all new S-series of Lumix digital cameras. The flagship of this new series is the DMC-S3, which is a tiny 14-megapixel digital camera that is packed with easy to use features and automatic control.

Included in this feature set is Panasonic's iA mode, which is featured on most all of their current Lumix offerings. While nothing new, Panasonic has added AF Tracking (for following moving subjects), and Intelligent Exposure (prevents blocked shadows and blown highlights) to the mix as well as their new Lumix Image Uploader option, which will directly upload videos to YouTube or photos to Facebook when you connect the camera to your PC; USB cable required.

Panasonic LUMIX S3 features include:
  • 14-megapixels
  • 720p HD video recording
  • 2.7-inch Intelligent LCD, which detects lightning conditions and adjusts its own brightness levels
  • LEICA DC, 28mm wide view 4x optical zoom
  • MEGA OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)
  • Intelligent ISO Control
  • Face Detection
  • iA (intelligent Auto)
  • Intelligent Scene Selector (Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset)
  • LUMIX Image Uploader (share images via Facebook and video via YouTube)
  • 70MB built-in memory
  • Li-ion battery pack
Pricing and availability details for the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-S3 will be released 30 days prior to shipping.  Once available, you can choose from four stylish colors; blue, red, black, and violet.
