LUMIX Special Features
Powerful 24x Optical Zoom
The DMC-FZ47(FZ48)'s powerful 24x optical zoom* draws your subjects right up close, and lets you freely capture decisive sports scenes, along with the natural expressions of people and animals, and details that you can't even see with your bare eyes.
In addition, this single camera lets you record 24x zoom in video recording. It makes the DMC-FZ47(FZ48) twice as attractive.
* 35mm camera equivalent: 25-600mm.
* The video is optimized for web view by file conversion.
600mm, F5.2 Shots with Softly Focused Backgrounds
The 24x optical zoom with its wide-open aperture of F5.2 produces stunning images with softly focused backgrounds. The high-quality lens ensures clear and sharp focusing of your subject in telephoto shots, and provide superb resolution and contrast for smoothly shaded.
32x Intelligent Zoom / 46.9x Extra Optical Zoom
Thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-FZ47(FZ48) which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 24x optical can virtually extend to 32x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 46.9x* by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.
* At 3-megapixel resolution or less.
25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens
The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.
* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

Learn about LEICA DC Lens
The Nano Surface Coating technology dramatically minimizes light reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear image with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare. With this Panasonic's black box technology, the image delivered through the lens has exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity that passes Leica's stringent standards.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S.
Panasonic has worked on the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds.
The POWER O.I.S. also works for zoom shots which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. The Active Mode is effective for video recording.
