Overview
  • 1Description

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ1 Digital Camera (Black) offers an impressive 16.1 Megapixel CCD 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 720p 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.

Take advantage of 2 new shooting modes: Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. Miniature Effect defocuses objects at the periphery 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 AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, MEGA O.I.S. / image stabilization, Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure.

The SZ1 is compatible with SD/ SDHC/ SDXC memory cards. It offers USB power charging in addition to the traditional AC power supply.

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
