LUMIX FX78 Features a F2.5 Super-Bright 24mm Ultra-Wide-Angle Leica Lens for Superb Photo and Video Quality and a Large 3.5-inch Smart Touch LCD for Intuitive Operation LUMIX FX78, which features a new Smart Touch operation on the large 3.5-inch 16:9 aspect LCD, allowing for intuitive touch operation, including Touch AF, Touch Zoom, Touch Shutter, and Touch Playback. The LUMIX FX78 also incorporates a new LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT, 24mm ultra-wide angle lens that has a 5x optical zoom with F2.5 aperture. The 24mm wide-angle lens offers approximately 213% larger viewing space when compared to a traditional 35mm camera. This high-performing lens has been designed to fit the slim body while still offering exceptional photo and video quality. With its wide and bright lens, the LUMIX FX78 excels when shooting dynamic landscapes and in low-lit situations.


The DMC-FX78 incorporates a newly developed high quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens that boasts excellent brightness of f/2.5. The f/2.5 lens is even brighter by approx. 25% than the f/2.8 lens which is generally considered a bright lens. It allows the use of higher shutter speed but captures stunningly clear, sharp, blur-free images even in lower lighting situation. Together with the anti-blurring function in the iA Mode, DMC-FX78 powerfully suppress blur caused by the movement of subjects.

Venus Engine FHD

The Venus Engine FHD is incorporated that features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities. By separating chromatic noise from luminance noise and applying the optimal noise reduction to each, you can capture clear and beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The Venus Engine FHD also provides precisely selective noise reduction to the chromatic noise without affecting the border of colors which is judged from the brightness level of a pixel. Linking smoothly with the new Hi-Speed CCD sensor, the Venus Engine FHD processes a large amount of signals at high speed, making it possible to record 1,920 x 1,080 full HD movie recording and high resolution consecutive shots at 3.7 fps in 12.1-megapixel full resolution and max.10 fps at 3-megapixel recording.

Beauty Retouch Mode With the FX78, you can retouch your subjects after the shot with intuitive touch operation. You can easily adjust esthetics and makeup while preserving the original photo. There is a dedicated esthetic pallet which allow adjustments to skin, teeth whitening, lift up, and eye emphasis; a dedicated makeup pallet allows touchup to foundation, lip color, cheek color and eye shadow.
Touch-control Shooting The DMC-FX78 gives you smooth, free, touch-control shooting. Your subject is instantly brought into auto focus by simply touching the image on the large, 3.5-inch LCD. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch and the Sonic Speed AF system provides fast, accurate AF performance for an entirely new style of shooting.
Touch AF Tracking (Photo / Movie)

Touch the screen, and the DMC-FX78 locks on and automatically "tracks" the subject as it moves, keeping on adjusting the focus settings for best results.

Touch Playback Control (Photo/Movie)

The touch-screen operation excels not only for shooting but also for playing back images with outstanding visibility. You can drag the image across the screen with a finger to browse a collection of photos as you flip over the pages of the book.

3D Photo Mode

The newly added 3D Photo Mode* produces a 3D image in the camera. The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links. Take 20 panning shots and the camera automatically selects the two most suitable images one for the right eye and one for the left eye to synthesize a 3D composite. The 3D image can be viewed on a VIERA 3D HDTV. The 3D image format is compatible with MPO, so it can be played back on other MPO-compatible equipment such as TVs and digital photo frames, or printed.
* The picture size is fixed to 2-megapixel (16:9) Slide the camera for consecutive shots. The camera creates 3D photo data by selecting two optimal images. The 3D image can be viewed on VIERA 3D HDTV and gives you a whole new exciting experience.

3.5-inch, 16:9 LCD

The DMC-FX78 is equipped with a 3.5-inch 16:9 LCD with 230,000-dot high-resolution and a wide-viewing angle. The big screen reflects fine details, making it easy to check the focus before shooting. It also serves as a small photo and video viewer, allowing you and friends to enjoy viewing the still and motion images together.
