Product Details

Panasonic Lumix Wide Angle Lens Black Digital Camera, Model DMCTZ5K

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.

    definately on of the best cameras i have ever used i researched a lot of different cameras before i decided on this i was also tempted by the Lumix FX-150 with 14.7 MP it was very tempting but i decided that having 10X optical zoom and 9 MP was a better option as i wouldnt really notice the difference in picture quality but would notice the massive difference in Zoom and im glad i did the pictures are fantastic and the zoom is simply amazing for a camera of its size , HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A++++

    There is one important feature that my new Panasonic DMC-TZ5 does not have. It will NOT automatically print the date on each picture. There is no option to turn auto-date on or off. If you want a date stamped on it, you have to go into the picture after it's taken and go through quite a menu to get it stamped on. Then IT REDUCES YOUR 9MP TO 3MP. This is a terrible inconvenience and defeats the purpose of having a 9MP picture if it's going to be reduced when I add a date. It's also a huge inconvenience to go into each photo after taken and go through menus to get the date on it. I called Panasonic and they said most of their cameras are like this. For the money I paid for this camera, I am dissatisfied with the date-stamp feature. No other options except buying a different brand if I want that feature.

    Comments about Panasonic Black Lumix Wide Angle Lens Digital Camera:

    The only fault I have found with this camera is that you are unable to have photos date-stamped as you take them. After you have saved the image, you can go in and date-stamp one or all but it REDUCES THE IMAGE QUALITY FROM 9mp TO 3mp. Other than that, it's a great camera with long battery life and easy-to-use options.

            Comments about Panasonic Black Lumix Wide Angle Lens Digital Camera:

            This camera is easy to use, comfortable to hold, has a good battery life, and priced reasonably for the zoom strength it offers. However, there is apparently no option to automatically print the date on the pictures as they are taken. You have to go into the pictures after they are stored and auto-imprint the date which causes you to go from a 9 mp photo resolution setting to a 3 mp photo setting - which is ridiculous. The auto-date imprint feature was very important to me and I now regret buying this model because I lose photo quality if I want a date on it. Other than that feature issue, it's a great camera.

                I use this camera for basic photography and find it to be quite capable. Haven't really pushed it yet but I have noticed that in low light environments (i.e., inside clubs at concerts, etc.) it does not perform particularly well. Overall, I really like the camera. Nice size (pocketable), solid build, functional software.
