Panasonic definitely has a few products under its sleeves. In addition to having a new range of ruggedized point-and-shoot cameras, they are also releasing two compact cameras which are the DMC-ZS20 and DMC-ZS15 which are considered compact TravelerZoom cameras. However, we will be focusing a lot more to the Panasonic DMC-ZS20 which is the higher performing camera as compared with the DMC-ZS15.
The DMC-ZS20 features a 24mm ultra-wide angle Leica lens and is capable of having an optical zoom of up to 20x. Like all upper-range point-and-shoot cameras, the ZS20 can also take full HD videos with ease and its Nano Surface Coating makes sure that ghosting effects as well as flares are taken to a minimum. GPS is also available and the data can be installed through a DVD provided with the camera. As far as the sensor is concerned, it uses a 14.1 megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and burst shots can be up to 10 frames per seconds as well. Manual settings are also available at the user’s disposal.
The price of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is at $349.99 and is due to be available in the market sometime in March. The ZS20 is available with a color choice of black, red, white and also silver.
