The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 (DMC-FZ38 in Europe) is a super-zoom, digital compact camera built as a successor to the DMC-FZ28. It features a powerful 27mm, wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with an 18x optical zoom AND a 12.1-megapixel CCD sensor. This combined with the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and ultra high-speed AF allow users to take exceptionally high-quality photos quickly and effectively. Most unique about the DMC-FZ35 is its incorporation of AVCHD Lite*2 technology, which is a superior Motion format; it surpasses conventional QuickTime and JPEG videos. Included also is a Creative Movie mode, which allows users to manually adjust the shutter & aperture—giving them the power to develop near professional-quality films. Note also the unit’s impressive array of photo-taking features:  Intelligent Auto, Face Recognition, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Exposure, and five automatic scene settings.
