The wireless connection also makes it possible to copy the images to PC or to send the images via a designated access point at home.
The DMC-FX90 is not just a communication camera but it features outstanding performance packed in a slim, stylish body. The LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens 24mm ultra wide angle 5x optical zoom (equivalent to 24mm to 120mm on a 35mm camera) with F2.5 brightness excels not only in shooting dynamic landscapes with its wide angle of view but also in capturing moving subjects even in low-lit situations such as indoors or at night with its outstanding brightness. The 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD sensor, the DMC-FX90 is compatible with high-speed, large-capacity signal processing required for 1920 x 1080 60i (NTSC, sensor output 30p) full-HD video recording in AVCHD. Alternately, videos can be recorded in MP4 format to play it back directly on the PC or other portable electronic devices without a need of conversion.
And the advanced image processing LSI, the Venus Engine, assures high picture quality in both photo and video recording. The Sonic Speed AF and a quick start-up time give the DMC-FX90 super high speed response that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities.

The Face Recognition recognizes registered human faces to set appropriate focus and exposure on the person even showing his/her name on the LCD. The Intelligent Scene Selector automatically sets the scene mode among frequently used scene modes - Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait, Night Scenery or Sunset. Also, Face Recognition, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure work appropriately just by entering the iA mode for any user to take beautiful photos with maximum ease.

Bright, High Quality F2.5 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT Lens with 24mm Ultra Wide-Angle and 5x Optical Zoom
The DMC-FX90 incorporates a newly developed high quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens that boasts excellent brightness of F2.5. The F2.5 lens is even brighter by approx. 25% than the F2.8 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-FX90 powerfully suppress blur caused by the movement of subjects. Also, the 24mm (35mm camera equivalent: 24-120mm ) ultra-wide-angle lens - rare on a compact camera - gives photographers a wider range of composition possibilities with approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to that of 35mm camera. The super-high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens minimizes distortion at the wide end.
Comprising of 7 elements in 6 groups with 3 aspherical lenses with 5 aspherical surfaces, the lens unit in DMC-FX90 realized downsizing of both total length and diameter to fit in the slim, compact body of the camera. It is made possible with its mechanism and the use of Extra High Index Low Dispersion Meniscus Aspherical Lens as thin as 0.3mm. Panasonic succeeded in developing the lens with high refractive index and low dispersion performance which results in the excellent color reproduction and suppression of chromatic aberration.
This advanced lens unit passes Leica's stringent standards and delivers an exceptional optical performance with its minimal distortion and chromatic aberrations while suppressing ghosting and flaring.
Thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-FX90 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even using a digital zoom. This means the 5x optical can virtually extend to 6.5x equivalent.
Advanced Signal Processing System with 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD and High Performance Venus EngineFor the image processor, the Venus Engine 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 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. Plus, the Intelligent Resolution technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it which is apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness. As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp in both photo and video recording.
Linking smoothly with the Hi-speed CCD sensor, the Venus Engine processes a large amount of signals at high speed, making it possible to record 1,920 x 1,080 full-HD video recording and high resolution consecutive shots at 3.7 fps in 12.1-megapixel full resolution and max.10 fps at 3-megapixel recording.
At the same time, the multi-task image processing realizes quick response making it easier to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities.

A Wind Cut function is also available to block out most of the noise from background wind.
* Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) videos are output by the image sensor at 30p (NTSC), and recorded at 60i (NTSC). HD (1,280 x 720) videos are output by the image sensor at 30p (NTSC), and recorded at 60p (NTSC).
The 3.0-inch Smart Touch Screen for Intuitive Touch-Control Shooting and Additional Fun
The DMC-FX90 adopts full touch-screen operation with 460,000-dot Smart Touch Screen. Auto Focus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the large LCD and you can even release the shutter.
Once you lock on the subject by a touch, the camera tracks the subject with the AF tracking function even if it moves. With the Intelligent Scene Selector in the iA mode, the camera automatically switches to the appropriate mode according to the subject touched. For example, a touch on a human face switches to the portrait mode and a touch on the background or scenery to the scenery mode while a touch on the subject close to the camera to the close-up mode. All menu setting is now available with touch control. In the shooting screen you can directly touch the icon to change its setting quickly.
The functions and settings used most often, such as O.I.S., consecutive shooting, auto focus point, white balance setting, ISO sensitivity level, image size and LCD mode are quickly and easily accessed via the shortcut setting by just dragging the icon to the main menu area.
Taking advantage of the touch operation, various functions are incorporated to add more fun to DMC-FX90. The Beauty Retouch mode makes it possible to virtually make up the faces.

You can play back the image you want out of hundreds of stocks by touching in the thumbnails. My Photo Album function lets users to sort images in the separate folders allowing quick, direct playback of the images they want without searching a huge collection of photos. For example, you can sort photos regarding work or those shot in private. This is also convenient when transferring the images because you can just copy the target folder in a SD card to the PC without selecting the photos you need one by one.
The Intelligent LCD automatically adjusts the screen brightness in 11 steps as the surrounding brightness level changes, ensuring easy visibility at all times.
The Evolving iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode Makes Every Photo and Video More Beautiful

Combined with the outstanding brightness of the lens and the Active Mode, the DMC-FX90 thoroughly prevents any kind of blur - whether out of handshake or the subject's motion, whether in photo or video recording.
Not only those, the Face Recognition function remembers registered faces to give an appropriate AF/AE on the people while removing the unwanted red-eye. The Intelligent Scene Selector automatically selects whichever of 6 Scene modes - Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset - that best suit the shooting situation.
In addition, the Intelligent Resolution technology is always activated in the iA mode which results in the clearer and higher picture quality in every photo and video with extended zoom range equivalent to 6.5x optical zoom by the Intelligent Zoom.
Plus, the light control of flash is optimized according to the scene more precisely and the portrait shots using flash, which tends to be overexposed, are now even more beautiful.
