Panasonic has introduced the latest flagship model of the popular “Travel Zoom” TZ Series the LUMIX DMC-TZ220.
The company has enhanced the device’s zoom power to 15x, the LUMIX TZ220 with 1-inch large High Sensitivity MOS Sensor offers more versatile uses and high picture quality, including ultra-high resolution 4K video.
The LUMIX TZ220 features new 24mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 15x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-360mm) and 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) to provide a versatile angle of view while suppressing hand-shake in both photo and video recording. It also enables stunning macro shots as close as 3cm, said Panasonic.
For even more creative photography, the camera integrates a new L.Monochrome mode in Photo Style, to create a monochrome image with rich gradation like that of black-and-white film.
Kunihiro Tanikura – General Manager, PMMAF, said, “Our cameras have always been favourites of camera enthusiasts not only because of high performance and reliability, but also because of powerful features. Among the many standout features of the TZ220 is its 15x power zoom, which is a dramatic extension of an already mighty 10x optical zoom on the predecessor TZ100. This kind of versatile zoom range from TZ220 lets you capture virtually any subject, in any situation – from dynamic landscapes to distant subjects, which is especially helpful when traveling. No wonder, TZ220 was recently cited at the TIPA awards as the Best Expert Compact Camera!”
Furthermore, with the LUMIX TZ220, 4K video recording is every bit as stunning with high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840×2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4. The camera’s 4K Live Cropping also provides flexible cropping to create smooth, slow zooms or stable pans, outputting Full HD picture quality in the final footage.
