Black and Whites #I, Lumix DMC-FZ18

'Digital Moments - Throwback 2009, five frames with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18, Part I'
The Series:

Lumix DMC-FZ18, Front ViewThe DMC-FZ18 was part of Panasonic's popular range of compact superzoom Lumix cameras. It was introduced barely half a year after the launch of the DMC-FZ8.

Being almost identical to the former, the FZ18 came with a bigger zoom, more pixels and a range of new features.

The camera came with a bigger 18x zoom lens (28-504mm equiv.), more pixels with 8.3 MP on its 1/2.5-inch sensor, and features which includes a dedicated AF/AE button, Face Detection, Intelligent Auto mode with integrated Image Stabilization, Intelligent ISO, Face Detection and Scene Detection modes.

The Lumix DMC-FZ18 has a form factor that is rather diminutively small. It does, however, look its part as it came fitted with a flower hood. It feels stable, safe and solid in your hands, and operating of the main controls (zoom and shutter release) is equally easy. The excellent handling, balance and weight, and with the support of image stabilization, make it even comfortable to use the camera with one hand.

The top of the hill aura of the camera was, of course, the superb Leica DC Vario-Elmarit f/2.8~4.2 lens, where images remained exceptionally sharp and clear even at the extended zoom limits. Exposure modes available on the camera was Programmed AE with shutter speeds at 1-1/2000 second, Aperture Priority AE / Shutter Priority AE at 8-1/2000 second, Manual at 60-1/2000 second, and Starry Sky Mode at 15, 30, and 60 seconds.
