The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is a point-and-shoot camera by Panasonic. It is a member of the Fall 2010 generation of Lumix cameras. It is one camera above the Lumix DMC-FZ40 and it Pansonic's first full hybrid video and photo handheld camera that can shoot full AVCHD 1080p HD resolution video. The DMC-FZ100 takes 14.1 megapixel photos, and has a 24x zoom lens. The MOS sensor on the camera is what allows for the HD video taking. The framerate during the video taking can be increased to 60 fps at the price of downgrading to 3.5 megapixel quality. The facial recognition feature both autofocuses on faces and remembers faces for future video taking. The camera comes with software for viewing and sorting recorded media, as well as for uploading videos to YouTube.
