Postby JerryEdison001 » Sat Oct 27, 2012 2:08 pm

Lumix is Panasonic's brand of digital cameras, ranging from pocket point-and-shoot models to digital SLRs. Compact digital camera DMC-LC5 and DMC-F7were the first products of the Lumix series released in 2001. They are equipped with Leica lenses. And in 2009, Panasonic introduced AVCHD Lite and AVCHD to selected members of its Lumix line of digital cameras.

AVCHD Lite identifies a subset of AVCHD format, in which progressive-scan video is acquired at 30 frames/s with 720-line resolution. Such a video is recorded in the AVCHD 720p 60 stream by using a flag telling a decoder to play each frame twice. Announced in January 2009, the Panasonic DMC-ZS3/DMC-FT1/DMC-TZ7 digital cameras were the first digital cameras to offer AVCHD-lite movie mode. Since then, Panasonic has added AVCHD-lite to more of its digital cameras, such as the Lumix GF1 Micro Four Thirds, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2, Lumix DMC-FZ35/38, Lumix DMC-TZ10/ZS7, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75, Panasonic LX5, LEICA D-LUX 5, LEICA V-LUX 2.

AVC-Intra provides high-quality 10-bit intra-frame encoding in two modes: AVCIntra 100 for full-raster mastering video quality, and AVC-Intra 50 Mbps for DVCPRO HD quality at half the bit rate, thereby doubling the record time on a P2 card.
