Product Details

Panasonic Lumix Wide Angle Lens Silver Digital Camera, Model DMCTZ5S

Features:

  • LEICA 28mm Wide-Angle Lens with 10x Optical Zoom
    Now you can fit sweeping landscapes into a single frame with the 28mm wide-angle setting. Pull in subjects from far away to capture even subtle facial expressions with the dynamic 280mm telephoto setting. Ideal for traveling, the DMC-TZ5 Lumix® 9.1-megapixel digital camera combines a wide-ranging LEICA DC Vario-Elmar lens with a handy, compact body. The Extra Optical Zoom function also extends the zoom to as much as 16.9x, giving you even greater telephoto power.
  • Intelligent Auto Mode Helps Get Great Shots in Every Situation
    Set the TZ5 to iA mode and let the five Intelligent Auto functions team up to help prevent shooting errors. Intelligent Exposure corrects lighting differences, so images come out just the way you see them; Intelligent Scene Selector chooses the mode that best fits the situation; MEGA Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) helps prevent blurring from hand-shake; Intelligent ISO Control helps prevent motion blur; and Face Detection helps produce clear portraits by optimizing the focus and exposure settings.
  • Big, Bright 3.0" LCD with Intelligent LCD Function
    With a total of 460,000 dots, the big, bright 3.0" diagonal LCD makes viewing and shooting easier and more comfortable. The Intelligent LCD adjusts brightness automatically in 10 steps as the ambient light level changes, so images are clear, bright and easy to see day or night, indoors or outdoors.
  • 30 fps High-Definition Motion Images and HD Output
    The TZ5 can record motion images with sensational 1280 x 720 HD resolution at 30 frames per second (fps). You can use the zoom, too, and capture some truly dramatic shots. When you're done shooting for the day, just connect** the camera to an HDTV and you're ready to view your still shots and motion images in high-definition beauty. **Optional component cable (DMW-HDC2) required.
  • Special Travel Functions for the Perfect Trip
    The Clipboard allows you to take photos of maps, timetables and other travel info. They are saved in a separate folder of the built-in memory to distinguish them from normal photos. You can print titles and other characters on the photos you shoot with the Title Edit and Stamp. This is great for creating your own postcards from a vacation trip. Input your departure date and destination with the Travel Date Setting. Later, during photo viewing, the camera will indicate on which day of the trip each shot was taken and the location.

        Comments about Panasonic Silver Lumix Wide Angle Lens Digital Camera:

        I use this for general photograpy - travel pictures, family pictures, work events, and since it has a movie feature, I'm using it to document household belongings for insurance purposes. I've never used a digital camera before and I'm really impressed with how user-friendly this camera is. A quick survey of the manual gives you the knowledge you need in order to experiment with its multitude of settings. The 10x zoom is amazing. The software is easy to install and use, and once you connect the cable to your computer, any other photo software will pick it up so you have a choice. You might want to get a case and an extra battery (unfortunately the case marketed for this fits the camera snugly and has two pockets for SD cards, but no storage space for a battery so you might need a small storage bag for that and the cables. Two cautions: The lens cover looks delicate; be careful when taking the camera out of the case not to touch the lens cover. Also, the microphone is placed in such a way that you have to be careful when taking a picture not to cover it with your finger. I'm really happy that I bought this camera - it seems ideal for me.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I received the usual great Abt service, with easy online ordering.

        Comments about Panasonic Silver Lumix Wide Angle Lens Digital Camera:

        I'm very new to digital cameras, and my film photography experience is limited to good auto-focus, point-and-shoot 35mm cameras. A pro might not be as impressed, but I am really pleased with this camera. Its auto setting does an amazing job, and it gives dozens of d.i.y. settings as well. The 10X optical zoom is a real deal in this price range and after a week I'm taking better-looking pictures than I ever have before. The software is as easy to use as the camera (although if you have other software it picks up data fine w/o the proprietary software - both Walgreens and Adobe open up to import if I want to use them). Directions are simple and straightforward for camera and software, and buttons, etc. are well placed, except for the microphone, which you have to be careful not to cover. This product far exceeds my expectations and I'm delighted with it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very quick - the usual Abt speed and efficiency combined with the usual Abt value. Great product and service from one of the easiest-to-use websites in captivity!
