Panasonic DMC-ZS7 Silver 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera - DMCZS7S

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens
The DMC-ZS7 features a 25mm ultra wide-angle* 12x optical zoom f/3.3-4.9 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-300mm). Incorporating Panasonic's advanced optical technologies, this lens system is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups, with 2 ED (Extra Low Dispersion) lenses and 2 aspherical lenses / 3 aspherical surfaces while preserving compactness. This lens system enables a remarkable 25 to 300mm range of focal length in this compact body. The powerful zoom of the DMC-ZS7 can be freely controlled even when shooting motion images. Inheriting the fine rendering and outstanding quality of the LEICA ELMAR lens, this easy-to-carry camera delivers beautiful images any time, any place.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

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.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

16x Intelligent Zoom / 23.4x Extra Optical Zoom
Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-ZS7 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 12x optical can virtually extend to 16x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 23.4x* by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.

* At 3-megapixel resolution or less.

HD Movie in AVCHD Lite
In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-ZS7 can record high-definition motion images in AVCHD Lite. It features almost double the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format. Also, with the DMC-ZS7, it is possible to use the GPS (Global Positioning System) function to record data on the shooting location. You can view images for each geographical location by using the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition to manage the images by date and location.

Powerful 12x Optical Zoom
The addition of AVCHD Lite HD movie recording doubles the appeal of the DMC-ZS7. This single camera lets you capture virtually all images in their natural beauty. It gives you both motion and still images, and ranges from 25mm ultra wide-angle* shots of sweeping landscapes to powerful 12x optical zoom shots (35mm camera equivalent: 300mm) that pull distant subjects right up close. The mechanism design minimizes the noise of auto focusing or zooming.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

High Quality Sound
A stereo microphone, featuring Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life stereo audio that brings out the power of your HD movies.

* Dolby and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

Travel Mode with GPS for both Photos and Movies
By simply turning on the GPS function, the location data and time are automatically updated. Great for travel recordings. The DMC-TS7 camera is acclaimed as an excellent travel companion because of a wide shooting range and hybrid recording capability of high quality photos and movies. The DMC-ZS7 further enhances its value by adding a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) unit into the camera.

Place name information (Country, State, City and Landmark*2) is displayed on the shooting screen real-time and recording them on the photo/movie.
The area information: 173 countries or regions!
The landmark information: More than 500,000!
The area information covers 173 countries or regions for global use. Plus, more than 500,000 of landmark information covers 73 countries or regions.

You can playback the geo-tagged photo/movie by the recorded place names either in the camera or on computer via the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition.

Connect to a TV with an HDMI cable*3 to view your memories on a large screen.

*1 The information of movie is recorded in EXIF for the Motion JPEG files and in the maker note for the AVCHD Lite files.
*2 The information of Landmark may not be displayed depending on the country or region.
*3 Requires the optional RP-CDHM15/CDHM30 mini HDMI cable. The output resolution of the DMC-ZS7 can be selected as 1080i, 720p or 480p (576p in PAL system). Please confirm that the TV you are connecting to has an HDMI input terminal compatible with the selected signal. Depending on the cable used, this function may not be possible. Panasonic HDMI cables are highly recommended.
