About the Panasonic DMC-LZ30

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ30 Digital Camera offers the ease and features of a point-and-shoot camera but with DSLR-like handling and control and a very powerful 35x optical zoom lens. Its 16.1MP CCD sensor and Venus Engine image processor provide sharp images, accurate colors and fast performance and its 35x optical zoom lens stretches from ultra wide-angle to super-telephoto length to capture almost any shot you can imagine. This lens offers the 35mm equivalent focal length of a 25-875mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/3.0 at the wide-angle end. This aperture is wide enough to capture low light action and the camera's Optical Image Stabilization will compensate for camera shake to provide clear photos and videos when shooting at the long lengths that this lens offers. If you need to reach a bit further, a 78.8x Extra Optical Zoom feature is available at reduced resolution.

720p HD video recording is also supported by the LZ30 and a dedicated one-touch button will take you instantly from photo mode to video. A 3.0" Intelligent LCD screen is provided for composition and playback, it provides 11-step auto brightness that automatically adjusts as lighting conditions change.

The LZ30 offers fast autofocus and its Intelligent Auto mode allows the camera to set all optimal adjustments while you compose and shoot. If you want your settings to be even more specific, 8 individual Scene Modes, such as Panorama, Sunset or Night Portrait, offer predefined settings that correspond to the scene you are shooting. High Dynamic Range is included in the Scene Modes to capture balanced images that contain both shadows and bright areas. Four photo aspect ratios are available: 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 and square-shaped 1:1. Manual exposure control is also provided by the LZ30 so you can adjust aperture and shutter speed to create images exactly the way you envision.

For expressive imaging, Creative Control and Creative Retouch allow you to add (before or after you shoot) effects that give your images that something special, whether it be a Retro look, Toy Effect or One Point Color. Creative Panorama offers the same effects for panorama images. The DMC-LZ30 provides 100MB of internal memory in case your memory card fills up and it's conveniently powered by 4 AA batteries. PHOTOfunSTUDIO 9.0 image management software is included with your camera.
