OverviewThe LUMIX LS5 is the ideal digital camera for an entry-level user who wants an extremely easy to use digital camera that does not sacrifice image quality,” said David Fisher, Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “With top-quality features like HD video and an F2.8 26mm wide-angle lens, the LS5 is giving consumers exceptional performance and value, while being easy-to-use and convenient. By adding a LUMIX model that runs on AA batteries, we are mindful that consumers have different needs and preferences.
To further its ease-of-use, the LUMIX LS5 features Panasonic’s popular iA (Intelligent Auto mode), which automatically engages the following features, without the user making any setting adjustments:
- O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) – Helps reduce blur caused by a shaky hand
- Face Detection – Finds human faces to give appropriate focus and exposure
- Intelligent Scene Selector – Detects the environment and sets the best shooting parameters based on Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Macro
The new LUMIX LS5 records HD video in 1280 x 720p at a smooth 30 fps – which is ideal for viewing on a High Definition Television. Users with a VIERA® HDTV, can simply remove the SD Memory Card from the LUMIX and insert it into the built-in SD Memory Card Slot on the VIERA HDTV to enjoy HD videos and photo slideshows. The LUMIX LS5 can also record video in standard VGA (640 x 480) and QVGA (320 x 240)
