Lumix Digital Cameras Feature Explanations:

1 - Leica Vario-Elmarit Lens
Leica camera AG is a camera and lens maker lauded by photographers around the world. One of Leica's most popular lenses, the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens, is now featured in select Panasonic Lumix cameras, bringing Leica's advanced optical technology to the world of digital photography. Thanks to Leica lenses, these Lumix cameras can take digital photos that have the same emotional warmth, impact and subtlety as photographs shot on film.
  • Wide-Angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens with 24x Optical Zoom Range (DMC-FZ200) - The DMC-FZ200 features a compact lens system featuring a 25mm-to-600mm (35mm equivalent) optical 24x zoom with fourteen elements in eleven groups, including three ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, five aspherical lenses and one Nano Surface Coating lens. The 25mm wide-angle (35mm equivalent) setting lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances. This powerful zoom also works during the motion picture recording (28mm-672mm 35 mm equivalent in movie recording). For macro shots, the wide-angle setting lets you shoot all the way down to less than an inch from your subject, and the telephoto setting can be used as close as 3.3 feet from your subject.
  • F/1.4-2.3 24mm Wide-Angle Leica DC Vario-Summilux 3.8x Zoom Lens (DMC-LX7)) - The F/1.4 - 2.3 super bright Leica DC Vario-Summilux Lens lets you capture crisp and clear images even in low-light situations with a versatile 24 - 90mm zoom range (35mm camera equivalent). The high brightness of the fully open F1.4 aperture produces superb images with smoothly defocused backgrounds. The extraordinarily rich amount of light can give impressive expression to images by reproducing exquisite gradations of light. Panasonic's Black Box Nano Surface Coating technology minimizes light reflection that causes ghost and flare, which help boasting stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail.
  • Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 24mm Wide-Angle Lens with 20x Optical Zoom (DMC-ZS30); 16x Optical Zoom (DMC-ZS25) - A compact, versatile lens system is the hallmark of Lumix ZS series. The ZS30 features a high-quality Leica DC Vario Elmar 24mm ultra-wide-angle lens with a 20x optical zoom. The ZS25's Vario Elmar 24mm ultra-wide-angle lens sports a 16x optical zoom. A lens like this, with a range from 24mm to 480mm (ZS30) or from 24mm to 384mm (ZS25) in 35mm film equivalence, is almost inconceivable in such a small, lightweight camera. This advanced lens unit realizes the outstandingly slim and compact body while surpassing Leica's stringent standards to deliver exceptional optical performance.
2 - Mega-Pixel CCD / MOS Sensor
All Lumix digital cameras have a mega-pixel CCD (charged coupled device) which converts optical data into digital information. It lets you capture crisp, clear images in high resolution, and helps bring out a full range of expressive color and detail.

To realize the 1,920 x 1,080 full-HD movie recording with high image quality, a new MOS sensor was developed. For the effective concentration of light, the sensor adopts microfabrication technology to achieve even higher sensitivity. With an advanced micro light tube structure, both color mixture and signal loss are prevented. The result is that the photo and movie shot at any sensitivity from low to high have outstanding clearness.

3 - Burst Imaging
This feature allows you to take consecutive pictures at an incredibly quick rate, perfect for capturing fast-moving objects in high resolution. You can then view your shots on the camera's LCD screen to choose the shot you want and delete the rest.
4 - Optical/Digital Zoom
Most Panasonic Lumix digital cameras are equipped with a 4x or higher optical zoom, capable of producing close-ups with amazing detail. There is even a 4x variable digital zoom*, which, combined with the optical zoom, digitally magnifies images up to nine times their normal size.

* As digital zoom increases, resolution significantly decreases.

5 - Built-in Flash
The built-in flash has an automatic setting, perfect for indoor use or in dim lighting, as well as a variety of manual settings, including "red eye" reduction modes.
6 - Built-in SD / SDHC / SDXC Card Slot
SD Memory Cards combine high storage capacity, rapid data transfer, and flexibility -- all in a card no larger than a postage stamp. Panasonic Lumix™ cameras feature a built-in SD card slot. The cameras also accommodates large-capacity SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
7 - USB 2.0 Full Speed Computer Interface
Panasonic Lumix cameras supports the USB 2.0 high-speed standard. In comparison with conventional full-speed data transfer at 12 Mbps, USB 2.0 high-speed transfers data at soeeds up to 480 Mbps. This is a highly practical speed for sending high-volume image data from the camera to a PC for viewing or storage.
8 - Motion Image Recording with Audio
The demand for digital cameras that can record higher-quality movie has grown in step with the trend toward larger HDTV screens and new technologies of movie recording. Now, in addition to Motion JPEG or MP4 images, most Lumix cameras can record high-definition motion picture in AVCHD Lite. It features almost doubling the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format.

Many LUMIX models are advanced photographic tools for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full-HD movies. In addition to Motion JPEG images, these cameras can record high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080i 60 fps video in the AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. The AVCHD format features almost twice the recording time in HD quality than the conventional Motion JPEG and excels in compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray Disc players. A special, separate button on the top lets the user instantly start recording movies while shooting photos without any having to make any extra settings.

Select LUMIX models take it a step further with 1,920 x 1,080p 60 fps progressive scanning recording. Twice as much data is captured by 1080/60p recording as 1080/60i. And unlike the interlace method, progressive scanning records and reproduces a full image at 60 frames per second, so fast-action scenes are crisp and clear, with very little flicker. You enjoy highly detailed images in a wide variety of shooting situations.

9 - Built-in Microphone
The microphone allows you to record audio when using the motion and still image recording features.
10 - Exposure Compensation and AE Auto Bracketing
Depending on the subject's degree of reflectance or lighting condition, AE photography can easily produce exposures that are either over or under the optimum. To compensate for this type of error, plus or minus compensation can be added to correct the exposure, which is called exposure compensation. Auto Bracketing automatically takes multiple pictures with a single press of the shutter, each using a different exposure. (Usually average, over and under exposed) This reduces the chance of an incorrect exposure. After shooting, you can look at the results and keep the best shot.
11 - Venus Engine LSI
Conventional LSI systems generate a luminance signal using only the green component of the image captured by the primary color CCD. Panasonic's Venus Engine LSI improves on this by generating a signal from all three color components -- red, green and blue. This advanced LSI improves diagonal resolution by about 50% compared with previous Lumix models. The LSI also handles image processing, LCD display, and even writing data to the memory card in paralell, as soon as the CCD captures the image signal. This gives the camera a considerably quick response.

The Venus Engine has quad-circuit system to for processing large amount of progressive full HD data at high speed. Not only 1,920 x 1,080p 60fps smooth full-HD video recording, but also super fast consecutive shots at 12 fps (without auto focusing) and 5.5 fps (with auto focusing) in full resolution. It is also compatible with recording high speed video at 220 fps in QVGA. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time. The auto focus gains approx. 50% faster speed compared with the previous model achieving Light Speed AF of approx. 0.1 second. The speed in AF Tracking also becomes faster thanks to the improved tracking performance which doubles its sampling frequency.

12 - Optical Image Stabilizer
Lumix cameras feature an optical image stabilizer (O.I.S.) in which a gyrosensor detects even tiny amounts of hand motion and integrally links the lens control to camera movement. Unlike digital systems and their "pseudo" compensation, this optical system provides precise, accurate compensation with no image quality degradation. Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. reflects technology Panasonic has developed over the years as a leader in digital video cameras. Compensation has been further improved to support the sharp, vivid image rendering of the Leica DC lens. As a result, these cameras deliver crisp, clear, sharp images even when taking handheld telephoto shots or shooting at night.

POWER O.I.S. nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. Panasonic has worked on the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds. POWER O.I.S. is extremely effective for high-power zoom shots, and clearly captures subjects in the ultra-telephoto range, which used to require a tripod.

Panasonic's advanced image stabilizer POWER O.I.S. is upgraded with an inclusion of HYBRID O.I.S.+ (HYBRID Optical Image Stabilizer Plus). HYBRID O.I.S.+ delivers 5-axis correction that detects and effectively compensates for the camera's 5 types of movement -- horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. HYBRID O.I.S.+ suppresses the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. The O.I.S. also works for powerful zoom shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. In addition, the HYBRID O.I.S. + is highly effective for video recording.

13 - AF Tracking
With AF Tracking, the camera can lock onto any subject and keep it in focus even if it moves -- making it easy to get beautiful, clear shots when a great photo opportunity suddenly arises. Simply aim, lock, and shoot.
14 - Color Mode
Alter the coloring effect to suit your taste. Available color effects include Warm, Cool, Sepia and Black & White. Select models offer Standard, Vivid, Cool, Warm, Natural, Black & White and Sepia Color Modes.
15 - ISO Sensitivity Settings
Adjust light-receiving sensitivity just like with a film camera. Panasonic Lumix cameras allow ISO equivalents of up to ISO 1600 or ISO 3200 at full image resolution. 1600 - 6400 ISO equivalents are available in High Sensitivity Mode at reduced image resolutions.
16 - Intelligent ISO Control (IIC)
The revolutionary Intelligent ISO Control (IIC) feature on Panasonic's LUMIX cameras signals the arrival of a new level of photographic excellence. IIC allows high sensitivity recording at full resolution (800 ISO maximum) made possible by the advanced image processing LSI Venus Engine III. When set to the IIC, the Venus Engine III detects the subject's movement and adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and the light condition automatically.
17 - White Balance Settings
Set Color tones to match the light source: Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Halogen and White Set. Select models add a sixth setting for Flash and a second White Set mode.
18 - AF Assist Lamp
Provides extra lighting as a focusing aid for slightly dark situations where AF focusing would ordinarily be difficult.
19 - Creative Control, Creative Retouch and Photo Style
You can use the Creative Control and Photo Style features for shooting photos and videos. It renders highly unique expressions by matching the colors to your subject and surroundings. With the DMC-ZS30, DMC-ZS25 and DMC-SZ7, you can also retouch images after they are shot with Creative Retouch. The filters are also available during playback. Creative Control options include (not all options available for all models, see product pages):
  • Expressive: A Pop Art style image effect that emphasizes color
  • Retro: A soft image effect that gives the impression of faded and tarnished old color photos and videos
  • High Key: An image effect with a bright ambience
  • Low Key: Creates a peaceful atmosphere for the image, makes bright areas stand out

  • Toy Effect: Produces vignetting, giving the appearance the image was taken with a toy camera
  • Soft Focus: Slightly blurs the entire image for a softer appearance, useful for portraits
  • Miniature Effect: Adjusts defocused and in-focus areas to make the subject look like a miniature model

With Photo Style, available on select Lumix cameras, you can manually choose from six color types to get even more detailed image settings, or to match the shooting situation in both photo and video recording. In addition, the contrast, sharpness, saturation or noise reduction for each mode parameter can be customized in 5 steps and stored in memory. In Custom Mode, finely customized settings can be stored for easy recall and use.

  • Standard: Standard settings
  • Vivid: Brilliant effect with high saturation and contrast
  • Natural: Soft effect with low saturation
  • Monochrome: A gray scale effect with no color
  • Scenery: An effect that enhances scenic shots with vivid blues and greens
  • Portrait: An effect that enhances human portraits with healthy and beautiful skin tones
20 - Face Recognition
Select models feature Face Recognition, a function that "remembers" faces. When a familiar face is recorded several times, the camera will prompt you to register the face. Once completed, if the familiar face appears into your frame again, the camera will display the name you specified for the person and prioritize focus and exposure so that the registered face is bright and in sharp focus. Up to six people's faces can be registered, and up to three can be simultaneously recognized to show their names once registered. Three face images can be registered for each person, to dramatically raise the detection accuracy. And when the angle of view is changed horizontally, the name display also rotates for easier reading.
21 - Built-In Memory
Take photos even when you don't have an SD Memory Card on hand. The built-in memory holds up to 14MB* of image data, which you can later upload to an SD Memory Card or PC. You can also download images from a memory card or PC to the built-in memory, and view them on the LCD anytime you like.

* MB equals one million bytes. Usable capacity will be less.

22 - Water Proof, Dust Proof, Shock Proof, Freeze Proof (14°F)
