Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue)

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Ultra Compact 25mm Lens and 16X Intelligent Zoom, AVCHD Lite HD Movie Recording, Travel Mode with GPS

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens

The DMC-ZS7 features a 25mm ultra wide-angle* 12x optical zoom f/3.3-4.9 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-300mm). Incorporating Panasonic's advanced optical technologies, this lens system is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups, with 2 ED (Extra Low Dispersion) lenses and 2 aspherical lenses / 3 aspherical surfaces while preserving compactness. This lens system enables a remarkable 25 to 300mm range of focal length in this compact body. The powerful zoom of the DMC-ZS7 can be freely controlled even when shooting motion images. Inheriting the fine rendering and outstanding quality of the LEICA ELMAR lens, this easy-to-carry camera delivers beautiful images any time, any place.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

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.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

16x Intelligent Zoom / 23.4x Extra Optical Zoom

Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-ZS7 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 12x optical can virtually extend to 16x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 23.4x* by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.

* At 3-megapixel resolution or less.

HD Movie in AVCHD Lite

In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-ZS7 can record high-definition motion images in AVCHD Lite. It features almost double the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format. Also, with the DMC-ZS7, it is possible to use the GPS (Global Positioning System) function to record data on the shooting location. You can view images for each geographical location by using the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition to manage the images by date and location.

Powerful 12x Optical Zoom

The addition of AVCHD Lite HD movie recording doubles the appeal of the DMC-ZS7. This single camera lets you capture virtually all images in their natural beauty. It gives you both motion and still images, and ranges from 25mm ultra wide-angle* shots of sweeping landscapes to powerful 12x optical zoom shots (35mm camera equivalent: 300mm) that pull distant subjects right up close. The mechanism design minimizes the noise of auto focusing or zooming.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

High Quality Sound

A stereo microphone, featuring Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life stereo audio that brings out the power of your HD movies.

* Dolby and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

Travel Mode with GPS for both Photos and Movies

By simply turning on the GPS function, the location data and time are automatically updated. Great for travel recordings. The DMC-TS7 camera is acclaimed as an excellent travel companion because of a wide shooting range and hybrid recording capability of high quality photos and movies. The DMC-ZS7 further enhances its value by adding a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) unit into the camera.

The DMC-TS7 features special Playback Modes.

Place name information (Country, State, City and Landmark*2) is displayed on the shooting screen real-time and recording them on the photo/movie.
The area information: 173 countries or regions!
The landmark information: More than 500,000!

The area information covers 173 countries or regions for global use. Plus, more than 500,000 of landmark information covers 73 countries or regions.

You can playback the geo-tagged photo/movie by the recorded place names either in the camera or on computer via the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition.

Connect to a TV with an HDMI cable*3 to view your memories on a large screen.

*1 The information of movie is recorded in EXIF for the Motion JPEG files and in the maker note for the AVCHD Lite files.
*2 The information of Landmark may not be displayed depending on the country or region.
*3 Requires the optional RP-CDHM15/CDHM30 mini HDMI cable. The output resolution of the DMC-ZS7 can be selected as 1080i, 720p or 480p. Please confirm that the TV you are connecting to has an HDMI input terminal compatible with the selected signal. Depending on the cable used, this function may not be possible. Panasonic HDMI cables are highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars   The Best compact P&Sh D-Camera there is
By fredi (Hartford, CT) January 03, 2011
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Pros: Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Great Zoom, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera was a gift for my wife. It's very difficult to choose a good camera, simply because there are so many in the market. After lots and lots of research, I picked Lumix DMC-ZS7. What made this camera stand-up from the other competitors, is a combination of a) its size which makes it easy to carry in your pocket, b) Leica lens which allows the camera to take crisp pictures, c) Auto mode delivers excellent pictures, for those who likes simplicity of camera use, d) MANUAL mode for those who prefer playing around with the settings. e) Records up to 720p HD videos, f) 2.3 fps for continuous mode (Sports & moving objects). Since this camera doesn't come with AA batteries, I would suggest to buy an extra one for back-up.

5 out of 5 stars   ZS7A is outstanding!
By LKN Angel (Denver, NC) November 09, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Short Lag Time, Good Image Stabilization, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Great Zoom
Cons: Poor Flash
Other Comments: I appreciate the ease of use of this camera. I do recommend reading the manual if you are not one to pick up things instinctively. There is a LOT of capability here that you don't want to miss out on. I have a Nikon DSLR (with a 18 - 200 mm lens) that is awesome. However, some times I just want to put a camera in my pocket and have it available to point and shoot. This Lumix gives me a great amount of zoom so I have the flexibility to get the shot I want. I like it so much that I have given one to my Mom!

4 out of 5 stars   Compact Zooming Digi Cam
By Ex Roadwarrior (Los Altos, CA) October 06, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use, Small / Compact, Good Image Quality, GPS, Great Zoom
Cons: No Viewfinder, Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Flash, Panoramic inadequate, Short Battery Life, Setup not intuitive
Other Comments: Use as a GPS instead of a dedicated module for my DSRL. Compact size is definitely a plus. Good image quality in bright light. Poor image quality in dim light. Min aperture f=6.3 is grossly inadequate. Panoramic mode is grossly inadequate. Setting up custom modes are not intuitive.

4 out of 5 stars   Good compact ultrazoom
By Mrnatural (Seattle) August 13, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera has an amazing array of features. You will need to study the owner's manual to make the most of the choices available. I find the GPS database to be a real disappointment. It isn't updatable. On a trip to Sturgis through Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and South Dakota there were many times that it could only come up with the state you are in. At Devil's Tower in Wyoming it only showed hash marks, not even knowing the state!

4 out of 5 stars   Powerful compact camera
By Photomax (Covington, WA) July 14, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, HD Video, Great image quality, Good Image Stabilization, QUICK START UP, Great Zoom
Cons: Small buttons, Weak Flash, So-so battery life
Other Comments: I bought this versatile little camera for times when I wanted to have a camera with me, but didn't want to schlep the Canon SLR system around. The image quality is excellent and it has a nice wide angle on the powerful zoom. I find I use this more than the SLR, just because it is so fun and easy to use. If I could put filters on the lens, I don't know that I would use anything else for travel photography.

5 out of 5 stars   Great camera packed with features
By Hockey Nut (Central Maine) July 12, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, Good Image Stabilization, Nice Body Color, Good in Low Light
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: I bought this camera to take on a once in a lifetime trip to Yellow Stone National Park. I don't think I could have made a better choice. The pictures were clear and crisp as well as the video. Nothing but positive comments from other people with different brand cameras. I'm not a photography buff so it will take me awhile to learn all of the manual features of this camera. The manual could be a little more specific about these features. So far I am very pleased with the performance of this camera.

5 out of 5 stars   Excellent - I'd buy it again in a minute
By DesertPete (Colfax, WA) July 09, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons: No Viewfinder
Other Comments: I replaced a Panasonic FZ 10, which I still have and use after five years. But I wanted something smaller with higher resolution. This camera is great. Just have to get used to the monitor viewfinder, which is less stable than plastering an optical viewfinder up to your eye. :( Bottom line: it's definitely a keeper.

5 out of 5 stars   Very easy to use and great pictures!
By Argyle Eagle (Argyle, TX) July 06, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Battery seems short lived, Very intuitive on screen, Good in Low Light, Would definitely recomend, Short Lag Time
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: Great point and shoot if you want or fully automatic. Love when you turn it on it is ready to take pictures quickly. Zooom is impressive with image stabilization. Large screen allows me to see without reading glasses! Very easy to understand and figure out. GPS takes a bit to locate and does not work indoors too well so far, but a real nice feature on a trip for 1 or 2 pics at the beginning of the session to just let you know where these pics were taken of. Haven't tried out the manual modes, but I'm sure I'll be impressed as well. Love the multi-shot modes as well. Beach Camera was one of the cheapest [...]. Good job, Y'all!

4 out of 5 stars   A fine, small superzoom
By zoomzoom (Washington DC) June 22, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7A LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Blue) (PNDMCZS7A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: I wanted a camera that fit in my pocket, had a very wide zoom range, good picture quality, and fast reponse time. While the timebetweenpictures was rated as ordinary, I sped thing by dialing down to fewer MP - I never have actually printed a picture at the size where I need 12 MP. The low light performance seems ok. It is a bother finding where to shut the flash off for those times when Idon;t want or need it, but I guess I'll get used to that. I haven't used the GPS yet, but am taking an overseas trip soon. I miss not having a viewfinder, but the large screen is bright and accurate.
