About Panasonic

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera 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, Panasonic's DMC-TZ4 Lumix 8.1-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 15.9x, giving you even greater telephoto power.

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.

Panasonic Features

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
