About the Panasonic DMC-SZ7

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ7 Digital Camera (Black) offers an impressive 14.1 Megapixel MOS sensor for beautiful image quality. It boasts a powerful 10x optical zoom and a 25mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens in a compact body for easy, convenient portability. A 3.0" (7.6 cm) Intelligent LCD monitor automatically adjusts the backlight depending upon the environment's lighting. Record 1920 x 1080i HD video via a dedicated video record button, allowing you to instantly begin recording without selecting any extra settings.

The full range of the 10x optical zoom is available in video recording mode. Light Speed AF delivers a super-fast focus response time of about 0.1 sec - making it simple to capture those spur-of-the-moment, must-have photos. Take advantage of 2 new shooting modes: Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. Miniature Effect makes the peripherals defocused while emphasizing saturation and contrast to make the image resemble a diorama.

When you record video in Miniature Effect mode, it's played back at 10x fast-forward speed, making it comical and fun to watch. Panorama Shot enables you to shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots and then overlaying the pictures to give the effect of a panoramic photo. Also enjoy Creative Retouch, which includes 6 filters: Toy Effect, Soft Focus Dynamic Monochrome, Expressive, High Key and Retro, each of which lend the picture a more artistic appearance.

The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to lend the photo a different look. Both retouch functions work their magic with ease at a single press of a button. Enjoy iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, which employs a whole suite of technologies to automatically select the optimal camera settings for natural, gorgeous images.

Included under the iA umbrella are High Dynamic Range, Intelligent Handheld Nightshot, Motion Deblur, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, MEGA O.I.S. / image stabilization, Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure. 3D Photo Mode enables you to capture 20 panning shots and then have the camera automatically choose the 2 most suitable images - one for the right eye and one for the left - to synthesize a 3D composite.

High-quality stereo sound courtesy of Dolby Digital Stereo Creator accompanies your gorgeous HD video. The stereo zoom microphone includes a zoom noise reduction system and the Wind Cut function assists in blocking noise caused by background wind. The SZ7 is compatible with SD/ SDHC/ SDXC memory cards. It offers USB power charging in addition to the traditional AC power supply.
