The Panasonic DMC-FZ18, besides the DMC-FX33 and DMC-FX55, was one of the first three Panasonic digital cameras to be introduced with the Face Detection feature. This feature detects up to 15 faces in a scene. Then it uses this information to set focus and exposure appropriately, is enabled automatically in portrait or baby scene modes, and can cope with moving subjects.

The second feature introduced was the 'Intelligent Auto' mode. This feature enables the camera to analyze the scene and select the scene mode (Portrait, Scenery, Macro, Night Scenery, or Night Portrait) automatically and activates the Panasonic FZ18's optical image stabilization, intelligent ISO, face detection, and continuous autofocus functions as necessary.

Other features of the Panasonic Lumix FZ18 include a 188,000 pixels electronic viewfinder, a 2.5-inch LCD display with a 207,000-pixel resolution,  ISO sensitivity to 1,600 (or 6,400 max. in high sensitivity mode), a range of creativity-friendly options including both aperture and shutter-priority plus a full manual mode, and up to fourteen scene modes to keep things going.
