Sonic Speed AF

The Sonic Speed AF (auto focus) in the DMC-FZ47(FZ48) features dramatically speedier focusing that is approx. 35% faster than our previous model.* You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.

* Compared with the previous DMC-FZ40(FZ45). The zoom is in the wide setting range. This refers to the time from pressing the shutter button until exposure begins. Using a Panasonic measurement method.

AF Tracking

Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus. With the DMC-FZ47(FZ48), the speed becomes faster thanks to the improved tracking performance which doubles its sampling frequency.

1-area AF (Flexible / Scalable)

With the 1-area AF, the position of the AF area can be freely moved. The AF frame size can also be selected from among Spot, Normal, L, and XL.

Manual Focus

In the manual focus mode, not only the focus distance but also the DOF (depth of field) according to the zoom range and aperture is displayed.
In addition, an MF Assist function enlarges the image to make focusing easier. The focusing area is movable, which also contributes to easy and comfortable manual focusing.

AF/AF-MACRO/MF Mode Button / Focus Button

The AF/AF-MACRO/MF mode button lets you quickly change the focus mode.
The focus button helps to achieve finer focusing. During AF operation, it serves to activate the variable AF area, and during MF operation, it changes to a handy One-shot AF to provide initial focusing. During playback, this function gives you one-touch zoom playback of subjects in focus.

1-cm Macro

The DMC-FZ47(FZ48) lets you get as close as 1cm to your subject. Ideal for taking dynamic, intricate close-ups of flowers and insects, this feature is also great for rendering artwork and handicrafts in spectacular details and rich expression.

3.7fps in 12.1-megapixel Full-resolution

The DMC-FZ47(FZ48) lets you snap off consecutive shots at approx. 3.7 frames per second in full resolution*1. You can take a series of shots, then choose the one you like the best and delete the rest. You can also select High-speed Burst Mode or Flash Burst Mode from Scene Mode.

*1 Focus, exposure, and White Balance will be fixed to the settings for the first picture. Depending on changes in the brightness of the subject, the recording may be brighter or darker from the second picture.
*2 The Burst speed changes according to the recording conditions.
*3 The number of burst recording pictures are limited by the picture-taking conditions and the type and/or status of the card used.
The number of burst recording pictures may increase when you use a card with fast writing speed or card is formatted.

These functions are also available.

Fast Start-up Time: The parallel processing of software achieves ultra high-speed start-ups.

Short Release Time Lag: The shutter release time lag is as short as approx. 0.005 second, making it easy to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities.
