Neither of the manuals are what I'd call user friendly, with lots of fine print and confusing tables.
The already capable Intelligent Auto mode has also been improved with Face Recognition, also seen on the TZ7 / ZS3, which can actually remember specific faces and give them priority in a group shot.
Setting it aside from the movie recording capability of conventional digital cameras, the DMC-FZ38 also features a Creative Movie mode, which lets the user set the shutter speed and aperture manually to make even more impressive movies.
Inside the box, you'll find: The.1 effective Megapixel Lumix DMC-FZ35 camera CGR-S006A lithium-ion rechargeable battery Battery charger Lens cap w/retaining strap Lens hood w/adapter Shoulder strap USB cable A/V cable CD-ROMs featuring PhotoFunStudio.0 HD, SilkyPix Developer Studio, ArcSoft Media Impression and Panorama Maker.In image processing, luminance noise and chromatic noise are reduced separately before and after signal processing.These include Intelligent ISO Control, which reduces motion blur by adjusting the ISO sensitivity if the subject moves as the shot is taken.Ultimately, EVF and performance limitations render the FZ35 a poor choice for shooting kids, pets, and sports.The.1 MP camera also features a Quick AF system that claims to be two times faster than that of the DMC-FZ28.Panasonic no longer includes a full, vmware client integration plugin 5.5 internet explorer 11 printed manual in the box.Newly added Flash Burst mode makes it possible to take consecutive shots with continuous emissions of the flash*7.In this super zoom group (which is missing the Samsung HZ25W, since I have almost zero information about it the FZ35's are well above average.This mode helps to capture a scene with moderate exposure even though the scene contains both bright and dark area together.For more details, you'll need to load up the full manual, which is on an included CD-ROM disc.8 Based on cipa standard *9 1)When you set the picture quality to HD, wvga or VGA, we recommend using a high-speed card with "10MB/s" or greater displayed on the package.Optical zoom during movie capture, yes (no audio.The High Dynamic mode is newly added to the existing scene modes.While burst shooting runs at about 2fps, faster than the rest, it's limited to three shots at full quality (five at most).There are a few other differences that I'll touch on as this review progresses.That said, like the higher-end Lumix GH1, theres also a new Creative Movie mode on the main dial which allows you to manually adjust the aperture and shutter for video recording.Rather than participate in the lens X wars, Panasonic sticks with its tried-and-true 18x zoom lens, a model that goes back several generations and which remains more than adequate a range for the general-purpose shooter.Editing avchd Lite videos avchd Lite is not an editor-friendly codec.This software has the usual image viewing and organizing features, and I especially like you can filter photos by things like scene mode or if faces are recognized.The FZ35 supports SD and sdhc memory cards, and I'd suggest a 4GB one to start with.
