Panasonics LUMIX DMC-S2
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-S2 is a continuation from last year's Lumix DMC-S1. The compact DMC-S2's new sensor boasts an effective resolution of 14.1 megapixels from a 1/2.33" RGB CCD image sensor, a very slight increase from the 12.1 megapixels of last year's model. It has advanced features, including a 28mm wide-angle LUMIX DC VARIO lens with 4x optical zoom, Sonic Speed Auto-Focus, and MEGA O.I.S. to help reduce blurry photos due to shaking hands, 720p HD video capabilities, plus Panorama and Auto Retouch Mode. Featuring the new Panorama Mode, the LUMIX S2 allows users to shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking a sequence of shots of one scene and overlaying the grouping of pictures to create one panoramic shot. The new Auto Retouch Mode adjusts contrast and brightness to give a different and unique look to any photo with the press of a button. In addition, the DMC-S2 features dramatically speedier focusing, allowing users to quickly focus on moving subjects when shooting sports and other fast motion scenes. The Panasonic S2 can capture 30 frames-per-second movies with monaural sound at high definition 1,280 x 720 pixel (720p) resolution or below. There's also a fairly generous 70MB of built-in memory, perhaps enough to prevent a missed photo opportunity if you accidentally leave your flash card at home.
