Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black)

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.

4 out of 5 stars   Great camera for any occassion
By livinggeekchic (Illinois) January 03, 2011
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black) (PNDMCZS7K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Short Lag Time, Great Zoom, Good Image Quality
Cons: Short Battery Life, No Viewfinder
Other Comments: This is a great camera for anyone who wants some of the manual options but still wants a capable point-and-shoot. It takes great pictures on intelligent auto, but you can also tweak aperture, isos, etc. if you're feeling adventurous. I absolutely love the zoom on this camera--I got some great videos of a concert where I was all the way back in the lawn section. Speaking of videos, this camera takes great video--the audio is very clear and the images too. Overall I love this camera. It does suffer sometimes from the "panasonic tint" (where outdoor photos will have a somewhat teal tint) every once in a while, but it's not too noticeable and I sometimes prefer the way it comes out. All in all, this camera takes very, very sharp images, has great zoom, and a lot of fun manual options. The indoor photos aren't the greatest, but they come out much better if you use the program auto setting and change the light settings around. Still better than your average compact camera will put out. I think this is the best camera in its class (compact, long zoom).

5 out of 5 stars   Excellent Point and Shoot
By Xyne (Sandy, UT) September 07, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black) (PNDMCZS7K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Easy Interface, Great features, Nice Body Color, GREAT PICTURE QUALITY
Cons:
Other Comments: I do not like hauling around a full sized SLR on vacation. And truth be told most pictures will not show the difference between a point and shoot and a SLR. Given that this camera is as close to the quality of an SLR I could find. With both shutter and aperture priorities as well as a great optical zoom, this camera comes as close to an SLR as it gets for its size. The only con I could come up for this camera is that some colors are slightly off. But I had to scrutinize several pictures to even notice it anyway. This is a great camera.

5 out of 5 stars   Better than expected
By TD (Los Angeles, CA) August 25, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black) (PNDMCZS7K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons: Lag time too long
Other Comments: The clarity and the zoom set this camera apart from the rest. I was amazed how it could focus clearly and identify faces from very far away. Only complaint is the lag time between shots. But I haven't found a compact camera that is fast. Love the camera and the fact that I can shoot video also.

4 out of 5 stars   Excellent compact camera
By xiache (La Verne, CA) July 25, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black) (PNDMCZS7K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Manual Controls, Good Image Stabilization, Nice Body Color, HD Movies
Cons: Color, Low light, Lag shutter delay
Other Comments: If you are looking for a 12x plus mega-zoom compact digital camera, you don't have to go any further. In this review, I am going to focus on the issues that I am happy with. 1) ZS7 is labeled as 16x Intelligent zoom, but the lens is labeled 12x. The additional 4x is coming from some extension and I am not sure how that works. 2) The HD video can't be played back with a HDMI cable on a LCD TV. I tried AVCHD Lite mode first. The default file is not mpg and not recognized by a LG or a VIZIO TV with the HDMI cable. After transferring to my computer, I had to rename it to mpg to be playable on my PC. Next I set it to mov mode, the TV still doesn't play it, but my PC computer can now take it. The only way for play back on a TV is to use the supplied RCA cable which is not HD quality. But the good news is at lease you can set the aspect ratio to 16:9 and it takes it well. 3) My Canon camera has a "vivid color" mode (and a few others) that makes the color really beautiful. SZ7 doesn't have color enhancement function. 4) Low light photo is quite poor. I didn't compare with other cameras but you would expect a LEICA lens to do a little better than this. 5) GPS is useless to me and wastes battery and hard to turn off. They probably should add a quick switch for the GPS in the next version.

By G-KAT (Chicago, IL) July 20, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Black) (PNDMCZS7K)

Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons:
Other Comments: GPS uses battery power even when camera is off. Airplane mode eliminates battery drain when camera is off; but there is a few minutes of start up time for the GPS when the camera is turned on. As a result, "quick" shots may not have GPS data.
