Product Highlights
  • 14.1MP MOS Sensor
  • 25mm Wide Angle LEICA DC VARIO Lens
  • 10x Optical Zoom
  • 3.0" Intelligent LCD
  • 1920 x 1080i HD Video With Stereo Sound

  • Creative And Auto Retouch
  • iA/ Intelligent Auto Mode
  • Compatible With SD/ SDHC/ SDXC Cards

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ7 Digital Camera (Black) offers an impressive 14.1 Megapixel MOS sensor for beautiful image quality. It boasts a powerful 10x optical zoom and a 25mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens in a compact body for easy, convenient portability. A 3.0" (7.6 cm) Intelligent LCD monitor automatically adjusts the backlight depending upon the environment's lighting. Record 1920 x 1080i HD video via a dedicated video record button, allowing you to instantly begin recording without selecting any extra settings. The full range of the 10x optical zoom is available in video recording mode. Light Speed AF delivers a super-fast focus response time of about 0.1 sec - making it simple to capture those spur-of-the-moment, must-have photos.

Take advantage of 2 new shooting modes: Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. Miniature Effect makes the peripherals defocused while emphasizing saturation and contrast to make the image resemble a diorama. When you record video in Miniature Effect mode, it's played back at 10x fast-forward speed, making it comical and fun to watch. Panorama Shot enables you to shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots and then overlaying the pictures to give the effect of a panoramic photo.

Also enjoy Creative Retouch, which includes 6 filters: Toy Effect, Soft Focus Dynamic Monochrome, Expressive, High Key and Retro, each of which lend the picture a more artistic appearance. The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to lend the photo a different look. Both retouch functions work their magic with ease at a single press of a button.

Enjoy iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, which employs a whole suite of technologies to automatically select the optimal camera settings for natural, gorgeous images. Included under the iA umbrella are High Dynamic Range, Intelligent Handheld Nightshot, Motion Deblur, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, MEGA O.I.S. / image stabilization, Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure.

3D Photo Mode enables you to capture 20 panning shots and then have the camera automatically choose the 2 most suitable images - one for the right eye and one for the left - to synthesize a 3D composite.

High-quality stereo sound courtesy of Dolby Digital Stereo Creator accompanies your gorgeous HD video. The stereo zoom microphone includes a zoom noise reduction system, and the Wind Cut function assists in blocking noise caused by background wind.

The SZ7 is compatible with SD/ SDHC/ SDXC memory cards. It offers USB power charging in addition to the traditional AC power supply (USB cable included).

Note! Sound is not recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode, and roughly 1/10 of the time period is recorded. If you record for 10 min, the resulting motion picture recording will be about 1 min long

    Comments about Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ7 Digital Camera (Black):

    These Elph-like cameras were gifts to my twin boys at Christmas. My wife and I shoot with the camera's big brother(s), the ZS3 and ZS7. HOWEVER, this camera gets software updates in tandem with the latest ZS-series travel zooms (ZS30), so you know it's got an amazing set of features : Full HD Video, 400K pixel display, 10x zoom, panoramic photos,superb build quality - in short, it's a miracle! The camera is not good in dim light, and although the lens is sharp, the sensor does not take pictures for blow-up beyond about 9x14, but if you can live with these two limitations, it's a miracle!

    I find myself dreaming of owning one myself, but keep having to say, "No, the ZS3 takes slightly sharper pictures in low light, and zooms to 12x", otherwise I would be buying a 3rd !!!

    Given that the ZS10 through ZS25 have been a disappointment in sharpness, you might be MUCH happier pocketing one of these, than stuffing a large blurry big-brother travel zoom into your pocket.

          I bought this for my son, who took it backpacking in Europe after college graduation. He knows nothing about photography, which made this point and shoot the perfect camera. The portraits of friends look good and the robust zoom captured far away scenery.

I searched though all compact camera in BandH and found out about this camera. it's cheap, and it's nice. It provide large-good quality image. Most of thing I love about this one is Leica lens.

                  Comments about Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ7 Digital Camera (Black):

                  In my search for an affordable replacement to my 9-year-old Kodak EasyShare (which still takes great pictures), I was hoping to find a point-and-shoot that set up quickly after being turned on and between shots so I could capture my busy little ones before they move out of frame. Compared to my old camera and a [much] more expensive Nikon model I purchased (and returned) last year, the Lumix DMC-SZ7 sets up exceptionally quickly, takes great shots of my small children in motion (hooray!), and, in low-light, there is no blur. I have yet to find time to read the manual, so I am this pleased and I've only used the default settings! This camera was a perfect find for my needs and price-wise (even on the higher-end), it was a steal.

                        My Nikon Coolpix started displaying vertical lines in the photos. I've had a couple of those over the years and they were ok, but decided to check on-line reviews. The Lumix seemed to be the best in my price range. So far, its great. I particularly like the switch to flip from photo to movie camera with out stepping through any menus. It also has a nice large display. The pictures I've taken to date are great. Only problem was putting on the wrist strap. I had to stick a bent paper clip in the opening to help pull it through.

                          Bot this camera as a carry-along for times I don't want to carry my main camera. That one involves a fair-size bag and a bulky instrument that does take excellent fotos [Lumix FZ150]. But this one fits easily in a shirt or jacket pocket, can go anywhere. With 3-inch LCD, 10x optical zoom, low-lite capabilities, and a host of point-and-shoot features, it's a lot easier to wield and operate than the big one. So i take it with me more often now. And i get great fotos with it. Very happy buyer.
