The Lumix DMC-LZ20 Digital Camera from Panasonic offers high resolution photography with a 21x optical zoom lens and HD video recording. High quality images are a breeze for any level of photographer with the Lumix LZ20 thanks to its 16MP CCD sensor, 25-525mm ultra zoom lens supported by an Optical Image Stabilizer and Panasonic's unique iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode.

The 16MP sensor and the LZ20's image processor work to produce high quality images even at high zoom and even using high sensitivity ISO settings. In terms of ISO sensitivity, which enables your camera to pick up more details in low light, the LZ20 ranges up to ISO 6400 in High Sensitivity Mode. It also provides blur prevention with its optical image stabilizer, which is of great help when shooting with the camera's impressive zoom. Ranging from a true wide angle at 25mm all the way to an ultra zoom at 525mm, the optical zoom function on the LZ20 provides its user with a complete range of focal lengths to shoot everything from family and friends to landscapes to detailed close-ups.

With its Intelligent Auto mode, the LZ20 provides the ultimate in ease of operation and error-free shooting. In iA mode, all of the camera's assistive functions- Optical Image Stabilizer, Face Detection, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, and Intelligent Exposure - are integrated to work together. Brightness, shutter speed, red-eye control are all taken care of, your job is to frame your subject as you like and simply let the camera do the work. 

This applies to the camera's video function as well! Dynamic HD video is recorded with the ease of pushing a button and with the included PHOTOfunSTUDIO software, videos can be easily edited and uploaded to share with friends and family.

The Lumix LZ20 is a compact camera with a comfortable grip that can easily be carried in your pocket and pulled out for spontaneous shooting, but its 3.0" LCD display is like that of larger cameras and fully able to show off the photos and videos you make with this portable, easy to use gem of a camera.
