Product Details

Panasonic Lumix 14.1Megapixel Black Digital Camera, Model DMCSZ7K

Features:

  • 10x Optical Zoom in a Slim Body
    The DMC-SZ7 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.

  • 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.

  • New 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.

  • Shake Detection - MEGA O.I.S.
    Gyrosensors detect hand-shaking and the O.I.S. lens shifts to compensate, helping prevent blurring caused by hand-shaking.

  • Large, 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot LCD (SZ7)
    The DMC-SZ7 has a 3.0-inch 460,000-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD function also automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. It lets you share the fun of viewing images with family and friends, too.

  • 1920 x 1080 Full HD Video in AVCHD Format / MP4 Format (SZ7)
    The DMC-SZ7 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format*1 / MP4 format. The AVCHD format excels in the compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray Disc™ players. The MP4 format has higher compatibility with computers.

        Comments about Panasonic Lumix 14.1Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

        Very nice and compact takes sharp pictures. It does have many features which a casual photographer will never use. There are many modes to remember and what they do. It is hard to see the subject matter through the camera in sunny situations. What happened to viewfinders on cameras?
        It does have an easy mode which takes great pictures. n this mode the camera does all the focusing and regulates the lighting very nicely.
        If you want to use many of the other features, you'll have to do a lot of reading, memorizing and experimenting.
        The price is very competitive with other similar cameras, but it wold be nice if there was a cheaper version with less options for those of us who are casual photographers.

        Unusable AF Macro Zoom â€"" 6 ft at Tele end!

        By 

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about Panasonic Lumix 14.1Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

        Overall SZ7 is a good compact camera. However its “AF Zoomâ€� is completely useless! 3 ft is usually the industrial standard for the minimum required focusing distance from the subject at its maximum optical magnification. On this camera “AF Zoomâ€� the minimum focusing distance from subject requirement increases exponentially and nonlinearly with the optical magnification: 1X â€" 0.16’ 2X â€" 0.98’ 4X â€" 3.3’ 7X â€" 4.9’ 9X â€" 6.6’ 10X â€" 4.9’ At 9X magnification it needs a minimum distance of 6.6 ft (not a typo!) and then it drops back down to 4.9 ft at 10X. No wonder one user commented “Macro Zoom garbage.â€� There is no workaround with this limitation. So if you need to use “AF Zoomâ€� feature quite a bit, this camera is obviously NOT for you.

          Comments about Panasonic Lumix 14.1Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

          I actually really liked this camera allot, It took very nice pictures and had lots of great features. However I returned it because of one unacceptable flaw...the lousy display screen. Although nice and big, it was to poorest screen I have ever seen. You need to look at it directly square to see the screen properly. From any slight angle, particularly up or down, the brightness and colors change radically. Trying to take a picture over a crowd of people, or out a window was very difficult because you can't see what you're aiming the camera at. It made previewing pictures almost impossible to judge exposure because slightly tilting the camera would make the picture look over or under exposed. Except for that one huge flaw, I loved the camera but I just couldn't accept it. If they offered the exact same camera with a better screen, I would gladly pay $50 more for it.

            Comments about Panasonic Lumix 14.1Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

            We used this recently for a family reunion as well as recording my local band live. The sound and Video are outstanding. Sound quality of the small mics are near equivalent to my other Mini DV camera using an external Sony stereo condenser mic. Video is HD clear full 1080 res and looks great! These latest cameras seem to not have DC jacks as an option for longer term power so it's best to have 1 or 2 extra batteries if you plan on using them for any longer length of time (like a long Set of songs). Battery lasts about an hour recording video and appx 2 hours just for pictures. The camera photos are stunning and the zooms are clean. I love the many built in options this unit has for lighting, backgrounds and other preset functions as well as deeper modes for ISO settings etc. This camera would be a favorite for a gift, using on vacations. My D90 will not have to dragged out as often. This camera is amazing.

            Service at ABT is great and shipping was very fast. I would recommend them highly. I am glad I found them. Their representatives were great in answering my questions and not recommending a purchase beyond my basic requirements for a product or optional accessories.

                    This camera slips easily into my pocket or my wife's small purse. Weighs next to nothing, is super-easy to use, has great definition, long zoom range, bright display, good low-light performance, and more available features than we are likely ever to use taking our "happy snaps." Using medium definition we take pictures that blow up to fill my 25" PC monitor with clarity. I can clip out even small areas of our pictures and print them 5 x 6 with no blur, no pixelation. Best of all, unlike some earlier models, we can manage & download pictures and charge the camera over a single USB connection. No separate charger needed, no pulling the memory card in and out. You don't have to be a photo-hobbyist to enjoy this camera's features and performance. We've had it for only a couple of weeks, taken 1,000+ holiday pics of people and places, have no regrets and would highly recommend this camera for ordinary family usage.

                      I looked around at every retail store and online to fine a camera for mother's day for my wife. I've had Panasonic camera's in the past. This one is great so far. The size and the amount of features for the price are amazing. The only issues I've seen are the following: -The zoom makes a little brrrrrpp noise when extending at a certain place during the zoom. I tried 2 different cameras and both had this noise, so I can assume this is normal. Hopefully it doesn't turn into an issue. -Battery life seems a little low.
