Panasonic’s newest digital camera lets you take professional-quality photos and videos while still being compact and pocket friendly, and allowsyou to easily share your photos on the spot. Leaps and bounds ahead of smartphone cameras, this intuitive but versatile digital camera is what you want to use to capture your most lasting memories.
Rather than having to get up close toyour subjects, the powerful 20x Lumix DC Vario zoom lens brings the image right to you, and the 16-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS image sensor provides extra-high resolution with a stunning crispness. The optical image stabilization helps to steady your shots for telephoto images or difficult lighting conditions, such as a dim restaurant, and automatically minimizes blur. And the Active mode is an effective option to use when taking video: it controls hand-shake vibration and gets you a more stable image.
The camera comes with intuitive features that let you quickly snap spontaneous photographs without any fumbling. The resolution of the 3-inch monitor is 1,040k-dot, making composition and navigation easy. The monitor also tilts up 180 degrees, and tilting it automatically activatesthe self-shooting mode—so that you can take a professional-level selfie. The shutter can be triggered by a simple wink to the monitor, so you can take hands-free and more natural shots. You can even take your glamour shots one step further by activating the soft skin mode, the slimming mode and the defocusing mode to give your skin a smoother look, your face sharper lines and your surroundings a softer focus to get you a gentle glow.
There are several connectivity options to post that selfie online, including a high-def Micro HDMI and a standard-def composite video output, which can also be used as a USB data connection. There’s even a built-in Wi-Fi radio that you can use to connect to your smartphone so that you can share your images anytime, anywhere.
