The lens especially excels not only in shooting dynamic landscapes with its wide angle of view but also in capturing moving subjects even in low-lit situations such as indoors or at night with its outstanding brightness. The 5x optical zoom increases its power to 10x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology.
Incorporating a 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD sensor, the DMC-FX80 is compatible with high-speed, large-capacity signal processing required for 1,920 x 1,080 full-HD video recording in AVCHD/MP4. It also contributes to the high speed burst shooting and Sonic Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities.

A variety of special effects that add fun to shooting experience are newly integrated in the DMC-FX80. In addition to 3D Photo mode and Panorama Shot, Creative Control offers 10 patterns of attractive filter effect in photo/video recording.

The Beauty Retouch Mode makes it possible to virtually make up the human faces to look them nicer. A rich variety of trend color is available in each cosmetic and the strength of effect can be adjusted individually according to the user's intention.
The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button. Appropriate retouch is automatically applied depending on the image - if the image was shot too dark, it can be clear and bright to look it nicer with this function.
Also, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode lets users leave everything to the camera to take beautiful images with MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode and Motion Deblur mode together with AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure.
