With Intelligent Mode, Even Beginners Get Great Shots You don't have to be a digital camera expert to take great photos. Simply set the DMC-LS80 to Intelligent Mode and it's easy to get clear, beautiful images every time you shoot. MEGA Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) will automatically detect and compensate for hand shake, while Intelligent ISO Control helps prevent motion blur by sensing subject movement and adjusting the ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly. Get perfect close-ups, too, with the camera's Macro mode, which automatically switches on when you bring the lens in close to a subject. 8.1-Megapixel CCD and 3x Optical Zoom Lens A high-image-quality CCD with 8.1 effective megapixels combines with a 3x optical zoom lens (focal distance: 33 to 100mm) to help you capture beautiful images in all kinds of shooting situations. The Easy Zoom button instantly extends the optical zoom and Extra Optical Zoom to full telescopic position. Bright, Easy-to-See 2.5" LCD With a total of 230,000 dots, the 2.5" diagonal LCD makes viewing and shooting easier and more comfortable. Intelligent LCD functions include Auto Power LCD for increased backlight brightness in the sun and Bright Live View, which automatically increases the brightness of live images according to the level of ambient darkness. This allows bright, easy framing of scenes that would normally be too dark to see on the LCD screen.
