Panasonic DMC-ZS10K Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera - DMCZS10K

The LUMIX ZS10 features a versatile 24mm ultra-wide-angle and powerful 16x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens. It's MOS sensor enables full-High Definition 1920x1080 video recording capability. And high speed burst shooting up to 10 frames per second at full resolution. A new, large, 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot Smart Touch Intelligent LCD which allows for Touch Zoom, Touch Auto Focus (AF), Touch Shutter, and Touch Playback. The LUMIX ZS10 also features a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) function allowing geotagged images to be pinpointed via online maps and easily shared with friends and families.

Features:

24mm Ultra Wide-angle 16x Optical Zoom LEICA DC Lens
The compact, versatile lens system is the hallmark of LUMIX ZS series and now this lens system is totally redeveloped for the DMC-ZS10 in both optical and mechanical design. The new high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens system is even more versatile with 24mm ultra wide-angle* to powerful 16x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-384mm). Comprising 12 elements in 10 groups, including an ED lens and 3 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit suppresses chromatic aberration which tends to occur in telephoto shooting. It also boasts a short total length of lens unit despite its higher versatility with longer zoom range, which is made possible by development of a new mechanism for the structure of lens barrel. The lens system is also compatible with high shutter speed of min.1/4,000 sec.

Venus Engine FHD
For the image processor, the Venus Engine FHD is incorporated that features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities. By separating chromatic noise from luminance noise and applying the optimal noise reduction to each, you can capture clear and beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The Venus Engine FHD also provides precisely selective noise reduction to the chromatic noise without affecting the border of colors which is judged from the brightness level of a pixel. Linking smoothly with the MOS sensor, the Venus Engine FHD processes a large amount of signals at high speed, making it possible to record high resolution consecutive shots and full HD movie recording.

Large, 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot High-resolution Smart Touch LCD
The DMC-ZS10 large 3.0-inch Smart Touch LCD features a high 460,000-dot resolution, and a wide-viewing angle allows you to zoom, Auto Focus, release shutte and playback with the touch of a finger. The big screen reflects fine details, making it easy to check the focus before shooting. It also serves as a small photo and video viewer, allowing you and friends to enjoy viewing the still and motion images together.

3D Photo Mode
The newly added 3D Photo Mode* produces a 3D image in the camera. The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links. The camera takes 20 panning shots and automatically selects the two most suitable images, one for the right eye and one for the left eye, to synthesize a 3D composite. The 3D image can be viewed on a VIERA 3D HDTV. The 3D image format is compatible with MPO, so it can be played back on other MPO-compatible equipment such as TVs and digital photo frames, or printed.

Touch AF Tracking Subject Detection
Once the AF subject is selected by touch control, it continues to track the subject even if it moves until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of active children, pets, sports scenes or subjects in a moving object, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus. The Touch AF Tracking makes sure you don't miss those once-in-a-lifetime shooting opportunities.

POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Shake Detection
Everyone has had an experience of taking a photo at night and hoping to capture all the memories and beauty, only to be disappointed at the poor result. Panasonic has worked on the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)* nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds.

* The POWER O.I.S. is automatically turned on in the iA Mode and can be turned on or off in the P/A/S/M Mode or some Scene Modes.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
When you don't know which mode will give you the best shooting results, or when a sudden photo opportunity pops up and you don't have time to change settings, simply choose the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode and let the camera do it all for you. Just choose the iA Mode, aim at your subject, and shoot. Four detection and correction functions are simultaneously activated to optimize the settings, so you get stunning photos every time.

GPS with Place Name and Landmark Information
The LUMIX GPS displays not only latitudes and longitudes, but also the area information that covers 203 countries or regions and the landmark information of over 1,000,000 locations in 82 countries or regions. This function allows geotagged images to be pinpointed via online maps and easily shared with friends and family.

LUMIX Image Uploader
The DMC-ZS10 gives you a new form of communication by letting you share your photos and movies. All you have to do is checkmark the photos and movies you want to share and connect the camera or SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card to a computer. Uploading automatically starts by simply following the guidance.* Facebook can be used for photos and YouTube for movies. You can join these social networking services without having to install any special software. It's easy to share photos and movies on the spot, which means that your friends don't have to wait for you to come back home to see them.

3D Image Viewer / VIERA Link
Photos or movies recorded in AVCHD on the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Cards are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV. Simply insert the card into the VIERA Image Viewer (SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card slot) on VIERA TV or DIGA Blu-ray Disc Player to playback your content. Alternatively, you can use an optional HDMI mini cable to output the still and motion images you took from the DMC-ZS10 directly to the TV for VIERA Link. Most of the control is possible using only the TV's remote control. Especially, the pictures taken with the 3D Photo Mode via the 3D Image Viewer offering users a whole new exciting experience.

Lumix DMC-ZS10 is a great camera specially when comparing its features with other cameras in the same or even higher price range, however, even great product have room for improvement, so please take my feedbacks following positively. I will definitely purchase another Lumix camera if it comes with all features I care about.. PRO: -) many controls are easier to set/select on the touch screen than those cameras with no touch screen. CONs: 1) Lack option for setting focus length manually. 2) Reddish skin tone on indoor pictures taken under the incandescent lighting with flash ON 3) Scene Mode icons descriptions are confusing. 4) Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode is not very useful because it frequently picks the wrong Mode but no quick manual overwrite to skip it to the correct Mode 5) No quick option to overwrite/disable a behind GPS 6) Battery gauge drops too quickly from the first not-full mark to the red insufficient/too-low power CON-1) Lack option to allow setting focus length manually -- manual focus settings as few as just 0.3m, 1m, 3m, and infinite, would be enough to cover the most pictures taken, it is vital when camera has difficulty to focus automatically such as taking pictures of the Moon with 16x optical zoom, or when red focus assistant beam scares off the wild animals hidden in the dark (prefer to turn off the red focus assistant beam). or when taking pictures behind the glass or screen window that confuses the auto focus. So far the Lumix ZS10 I have still unable to take a sharp Moon picture with its optical zoom on 16X/max. CON-2) pictures showing reddish skin tone for pictures taken indoor under the incandescent lighting with camera flash ON, all people showing mad red like faces. Also, the orange color T-shirt showing the color close to the dark pink grapefruit color. Daylight outdoor pictures do show good colors. Hope the reddish color skin tone can be fixed by a camera software driver update or is it a hardware issue? CON-3) many of the Scene Mode icons descriptions are not very clear;. For examples, I have little clue about the scene modes/icons descriptions that state "Takes clear pictures of night scenes." and "Takes natural-looking pictures of food."? The mode description would be much more readable if each description contains both "What are the current environments" (such as indoor with dim incandescent lighting), and "What could be achieved when shots with this mode " (such as bringing face skin tone similar to shooting picture under the daylight). The confusing descriptions make users difficult to pick the right Scene Mode to use. For example, To shoot people sitting in the shade, it is difficulty to find which Scene Mode to use so to bring their faces & clothes with sufficient lighting, i.e., to show the right skin tone but still won't show the under sunlight background too bright. About 20 years ago, the Canon EOS 10QD camera came with an excellent bar code booklet that provided very clear descriptions for many frequent photo occasions, hope Lumix camera team doesn't mind to check it out to see how did they make their descriptions differently/effectively 20 years ago? CON-4) Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode: is not very useful because it frequently selects the wrong Mode but doesn't allow/provide a quick manual overwrite option such as a key on touch screen for user to skip Mode until it reaches the correct Mode. CON-5) No quick on-touch-screen option to overwrite/disable GPS location when GPS location detection is behind or slow. It would be better if user can temporarily disable a misleading/behind GPS location with one touch on an icon on the touch screen? CON-6) Battery gauge drops too quickly from the first non-full mark to the red insufficient/too-low battery power. It would be better, if possible, alert user by how many pictures left for the battery power when it is off from the full power sign. Again, as I mentioned above, using Lumix DMC-ZS10 camera is a very enjoyable experience even without the features I mentioned above, the camera is a good deal in its price range, better than some other less feature but more expensive brands of cameras..

I am a previous Z3 owner. The switch to CMOS from CCD could have been better. A backlit CMOS would have been a better choice. The images are too noisy. Hoping Panasonic will fix this with a firmware update. Pictures from the Z3 have less noise, and have much less purple fringing (CA). Panasonic, please fix this camera with a firmware update!

          I had high expectations to this camera but now I wish I never bought it. Reason: All images comes out with a very strong blue coloured tint to them. Red coloured is missing desperately. The finished image looks nothing like "the real thing". the camera does not have an option that will correct this problem. I can go to a photo editing program and correct most of this, but this is not something I would want to do with every photo I take from now on.

            Unlike the ZS7, the low light video is very poor. In daylight the video is very good but in any sort of low light situation, the video is completely dark and useless. The vdeo quality was the main reason that folks loved the ZS7 but the ZS10 is a major let down.

I can now pick and choose the subject that I am taking pictures of and I will get the best quality picture of them. I love the GPS feature as well. Overall this is just the best Lumix camera I have and I have 4 other Lumix cameras. I can safely say they are my all time favorite. Thanks Panasonic for giving me the best pictures to show off

                  I'm a complete novice but have found this camera easy to use. I've had plenty of inexpensive digital cameras in the past that have found the trashcan. The 16x optical zoom on this camera is awesome. I've played around with the low light - nightime picture cababilities have have been very pleased, as long as you use it with a tripod. In decent to good light, the 1080p HD video is awesome too. While I needed to poke around a bit to find the video files, they were easily coverted so that I could burn to DVD. I took approximately an hours worth of Video on a recent CO trip (16g class 10 card), burned to DVD and looks great on my 55" TV. The lens did fog up one day but I'll cut some slack as it was -4 degrees F.

                      Bought this for the video function. I have a ZS7 and it is great for this with the exception of the "blue line" problem. The new sensor in the ZS10 solves that problem but it is TERRIBLE in low light. Basically, in any room light situation is is almost black and very grainy. The 1080P is great when you are in daylight. Photos also suffer somewhat from the same problem. Overall the camera is improved over the ZS7 (if they had left the sensor alone!).

                        The ZS10 is another step forward in the "travel zoom" camera category. It is definitely a step up from previous models with several major advancements. The ZS10 is fairly easy to use for owners of previous ZS models. Newcomers to the ZS line of cameras may find themselves struggling to master its many features. I recommend they download the Advanced Users Manual from the Panasonic web site and read it. None the less, the ZS10 is an excellent camera for its intended market segment. My one gripe is the less than adequate manual included in the box. The advanced manual, which is a lot more complete, is only available as a PDF download. I want a hard copy.

                          OK, this camera is already loaded with features. It's a superb picture taking machine and I wear it strapped to my belt almost 24/7. But there's just a couple more features that I'd like to see in the next upgrade: (1) wi-fi and cell phone connectivity. One of the optically lesser models from Panasonic already has this. Add it to the ZS10! (2) A time-lapse mode for taking pics of flowers unfolding etc. To make room for these features you could lose the touch-screen controls; they just cause me to take a lot of unintended exposures when my finger grazes the screen. The ZS series just keeps getting better and better.
