Digital cameras that can shoot video are a dime a dozen, but only a few give you the power to manually select aperture and shutter speed. The Lumix FZ47 from Panasonic gives you full control over both video and still photo capture with its Creative Control mode.
The 12.1-megapixel superzoom can shoot 1080i HD at 30 fps. It also has a 3-inch LCD, 24x Leica zoom lens with a 25mm wide-angle focal length, and you can shoot 3.5-megapixel stills while recording video. The $400 FZ47 will arrive next month.
