At the press conference of Panasonic in Paris we were able to shoot with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 digital Megazoom camera. The Panasonic FZ8 is a camera for the photographer who is into a variety of photographic shooting. Although the camera is easy to handle and incorporates a range of pre-programmed scenes, it is offering a range of photographic settings like P/S/A/M for the more experienced photographer. I took the Panasonic camera with me to Versailles and was able to test the new Intelligent ISO control in combination with the MEGA O.I.S stabilizing system. I have to remind you that the images of the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ8 are still a pre-production level, not final level!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Features
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 is equipped with a 7.2 Megapixel CCD and a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offering a 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36mm to 432mm on a 35mm film camera) with an aperture of f/2.8 to f3.3. Handy is the ability to extend this zoom to 18x in 3 Megapixel mode, the so-called Extra Optical Zoom function. In combination with the digital zoom the total zoom reaches 72x. The joystick-control on the back of the camera handles the adjustment of the settings very easy.

Panasonic Lumix FZ8 Sample images
The sample images of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 digital camera are made in Paris during the Panasonic global meeting. After the introduction of a complete new Lumix digital camera line-up I was able to shoot a variety of pictures with the Panasonic FZ8 camera. Remarkable features of the camera are light weight, very compact, optical image stabilizer, intelligent ISO control and a range of settings that would make the camera ideal for enthusiastic photographers. Take a look at our image gallery; the images were shot right after the Panasonic Global Press meeting in Paris.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
