The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ1 Digital Camera offers an impressive 16.1 Megapixel CCD sensor for beautiful image quality. It boasts a powerful 10x optical zoom and a 25mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens in a compact body for easy, convenient portability. A 3.0" (7.6 cm) Intelligent LCD monitor automatically adjusts the backlight depending upon the environment's lighting. Record 720p HD video via a dedicated video record button, allowing you to instantly begin recording without selecting any extra settings. The full range of the 10x optical zoom is available in video recording mode.
10x Optical Zoom in a Slim Body - The DMC-SZ1 features a powerful 10x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact body can easily go wherever you go – for both everyday snapshots and traveling. In addition, this single camera lets you record 10x optical zoom in video recording.
20x iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) - The iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 10x optical can virtually extend to 20x equivalent.
25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens - The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.
LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR Lens System - The new high-quality LEICA DC lens system is even more versatile with 25mm ultra wide-angle to powerful 10x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups including 4 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, adoption of ultra thin lens for its new structure optical system makes the unit's overall length short to fit in the slim body despite its versatile zoom range from ultra wide to telephoto.
MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) - The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images.
MP4 Format Recording - The MP4 format is suitable for editing videos on a computer or uploading those to websites. The DMC-SZ1 can record 1,280 x 720 HD videos at 30p (NTSC).
Formats to Match Your Needs - AVCHD: Optimal for viewing on a VIERA TV or with Blu-ray Disc players.
10x Optical Zoom in Video Recording - The 10x optical zoom lets you zoom up close to subjects that you can't actually approach, even when shooting videos. This single camera will capture both photos and videos of highly natural expressions from people and animals, dynamic sports scenes and countless other situations, exactly as you see them.
Miniature Effect - In Miniature Effect Mode, the video recorded is played back in 10x fast-forwarding making it more comical to watch.
