Authentic Travel Camera, 20x Optical Zoom


Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS25 Digital Camera The Lumix DMC-ZS25 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a handsome, high-quality compact camera with a 20x optical zoom lens, Intelligent Auto mode and manual exposure control. Its 16.1MP MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor provide low-noise images, accurate colors and fast performance and its 20x optical zoom lens stretches from ultra wide-angle to super-telephoto lengths. This Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens offers the 35mm equivalent focal length of a 24-480mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/3.3 at the wide-angle end. This aperture is wide enough to capture low light action and the camera's POWER Optical Image Stabilization will compensate for camera shake to provide clear photos and videos when shooting at the long lengths this lens offers. If you need to reach a bit further, a 40x Intelligent Digital Zoom feature is also available. Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion lens elements and Nano Surface Coating minimize aberrations and flaring for sharply rendered images.

Full HD 1080 video recording is also supported by the ZS25 and a dedicated one-touch button will take you instantly from photo mode to video. You can also shoot still images while recording a video. A 3.0" Intelligent LCD screen is provided for composition and playback, it has an 11-step auto brightness function that automatically adjusts as lighting conditions change.

The ZS25 offers fast autofocus, burst shooting 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, 18 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 and manual exposure control is also available on the ZS25 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 artsy effects before or after you shoot, for example Retro Look, Toy Effect or One Point Color. Creative Panorama offers the same effects on panorama images and Creative Control is also supported in video mode.

The DMC-ZS25 provides 90MB of internal memory in case your memory card fills up and it's conveniently powered by both a conventional AC adapter and via the USB input. PHOTOfunSTUDIO 9.0 image management software is included with your camera.  Jan 7, 2013
