Product Description

The Panasonic DMC-F2 is designed with simplicity in mind, without overlooking the importance of style and performance. This 10.1-megapixel camera has an impressive 4x optical zoom. When your subject is far away use the 7.8x Extra Optical Zoom when shooting at 3 megapixels. In the Auto Scene Mode, advanced detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. It includes Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to detect faces in the frame and Intelligent Scene Selector to detect scene conditions.

The DMC-F2 also records video at 640 x 480, at a smooth 30fps. The 2.5-inch 230,000-dot resolution LCD is designed so the user can clearly see the subject while shooting still photos and videos. The Panasonic LUMIX F2 is for the casual but frequent photographer who wants a digital camera that is not only small and stylish in design, but that has sophisticated features to help enrich the photo-taking experience.

  • Large 2.5-inch LCD: The DMC-F2 has a 2.5-inch 230,000-dot high-resolution LCD.
  • Intelligent Scene Selector: The Intelligent Scene Selector automatically sets the Scene Mode to either of Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait or Night Scenery. The camera judges it from the various detection results such as focusing and brightness level of the circumstance. You are free from annoying settings every time scene changes when taking images with these most frequently used Scene Modes to get beautiful results even before you know it.

I bought this camera to replace a 2007 model Lumix (LS-70) that broke due to water damage. This model is more advanced in some areas (more megapixels and longer zoom) but less advanced in others (no optical image stabilization [OIS]). It was the latter point that was my main misgiving upon ordering the F2, but the lack of OIS so far has not seemed to be an issue. I am still able to take sharp ISO 80-100 photos indoors with the flash or reasonable ambient lighting.

Overall, pictures from this camera are very good and of higher quality than my last Lumix. Colors are fairly accurate as long as white balance is set correctly. Barrel distortion at wide angle, one of my pet peeves, is minimal. Noise is kept at an acceptable level from ISO 80 through 200. (I have not bothered to test higher ISOs as I would probably not use them.)

Sharpness is very good in the central part of the image, especially at wide angle (35 mm equivalent being a respectable 33 mm), and even at 100% resolution for 5-megapixel images (I have little need for the 10 MP setting). However, moving out toward the edges, problems begin to appear. Severe blurring affects the right upper and especially lower corners at wide angle and extends to a lesser extent along the edgebetween the corners. Along the bottom right edge, blurring extends into at least a third of the image.

This may seem like a minor point, but it is noticeable in certain textures even at a much reduced resolution (less than full screen size for 4:3 images on a 17" widescreen monitor). The best solution I can think of for this issue is to favor the upper left corner when framing the image, leaving the opportunity to crop out the right edge for a crystal clear and vivid image.

This camera is sooooooo easy to use! It took me about an hour of playing around with this camera to find all the features (and more) that would meet my needs. The pictures come out so beautiful with just a simple press half way to focus and shoot! I've purchased more expensive cameras that gave me less than beautiful pictures (probably due to user error), but this camera is MUST I emphasize VERY EASY TO USE! I'm sure my other cameras could have done the same thing, but they were more complicated and I'm sure I messed up the settings by playing around with it.

There is a scene mode that allows you to take pictures in different settings (parties, snow, aerial views, indoor, night sky, babies, pets, etc.) There is also the normal shooting mode which allows you to shoot in color, black and white, sepia.

There is the coolest feature (i found) where you could shoot in bursts with or without flash...meaning...you hold the shooting button down and it takes continuous photos...like one of those flip books...so you don't miss any moment! I don't know if my other cameras had this function...if they did...I could not find it.

I am very satisfied with this camera! So 5 stars for ease of use, and great quality photos with simple and easy to use modes!

I already own a more expensive Lumix camera so I know the great quality cameras that Panasonic builds - but I didn't want to carry my other camera around in my bag on a daily basis, so this DMC-F2 fits the bill for me.

It is not fair to compare the two so I will just say I am impressed with this camera, even though it does not have OIS like my other Lumix (optical image stabilization - helps with camera shake). Truthfully, so far I cannot tell the difference in most instances. But if OIS is a must-have for you, for a little bit more this Panasonic Lumix would be a better choice Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Black).

The negative is I have to concentrate a little when I take a photo or it will be blurry. When you hold the button down a little before you take the shot makes a big difference. Gives it time to calculate what it needs to do. I took this camera to a wedding and I love where I could shut off all noise so not to disrupt the ceremony. I have a photo above (brick patio) to show an example. I like the camera but I wasn't prepared for the blurry photos. Has some neat settings like sepia tone for the old fashioned look. Nice that is has its own battery and charger. Very compact and light weight.
As an update I'm dropping it a star. I had the wedding photos printed out and a lot of them are a little grainy. The camera was set at 5mp. I'm not pleased.
