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.

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.
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).
>> Fast cycling - time between shots before it's ready again is about 1 second
>> Takes good pictures, good contrast, although a little soft
>> Burst mode - easy to change between one shot & burst mode via the quick menu button (lower right corner)
>> Small & compact, but not too small that it's hard to grip, lightweight, easy to carry in your pocket if you want
>> Black finish is matte, so it doesn't show fingerprints
>> Lithium battery charges in less than 90 minutes and so far has not needed recharging and I've taken almost 275 pictures
>> Movies are darn good for not being HD
>> Cheap plastic body, - the build quality is a little "iffy" for me - like the reviewer above who has the most helpful review votes, the entire zoom button moves back & forth, side to side in my camera also, like the hole was drilled too large, but it hasn't affected my ability to zoom in & out
>> No optical image stabilization, most of the time it's not been an issue
>> Not many manual controls, but you can't expect them at this price point
>> Photo Fun Studio software isn't worth installing, Picasa is better
Movies! I can't believe how great the video quality is, even though it's not HD. I own a 3rd generation Flip MinoHD camcorder and this Panasonic camera takes better-looking videos.
Movies are in the QuickTime format (software is included).
I also want to note that you cannot zoom in/out while shooting a movie like most cameras of this price range. But you can set the zoom before pressing the shutter to record.
This camera uses a lithium battery, part number is CGA-S/106B, which is a 3.6V, 740 mAh 2.7Wh lithium-ion battery, in case you want a spare. The battery is charged outside the camera in a separate included battery charger that plugs into the receptacle.
This camera does have some internal memory, but on full 10 MP setting will only take 9 photos, so pick up an SD memory card. I'm using a 4 GB Class 6 and this will hold 787 pictures at the 10 MP setting.
This is a great case for this camera: Lowepro Volta 20 Camera Case (Black) Fits perfectly!
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!
