Panasonic Lumix S3 is a compact yet powerful and stylish digital camera with some great features that you would normally find in a high-end digital camera.
First and foremost is the 14.1MP capability of the Lumix S3. You can shoot images with great depth and clarity using the 28mm Wide-angle LUMIX DC VARIO Lens. The 4X optical zoom lets you further zoom in on things you want to capture in your photos.
Next up is the MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) that makes sure that the photos you click are free of blur and zitter which may be cause due to shaky hands. The OIS ensures that you are able to shoot in not so bright rooms and areas and still get a clear image.
Further in line is the iA (intelligent Auto) mode which coupled with 4 detection function adjusts the settings depending on the surroundings ensuring that you have the best possible picture every single time.
The S3 is also capable of shooting HD (1280 x 720) motion pictures at 30 fps in JPEG format. Through the menu system on the S3, you can mark videos that you want to upload on YouTube. Simply attach the camera or the memory card to the computer and follow the instructions on the accompanying software and your videos will be ready to roll on the web.
Last but not the least is the massive 2.70inch LCD screen that lets you easily navigate the menu system as well as playback the recorded videos while also letting you navigate through all the photos that you have taken.
All in all the S3 is a value for money digital camera and may be a great gift option this Christmas.
