Panasonic DMC-ZS3- World’s first compact camera with Dolby Digital Stereo Creator

untitled.jpgThe new Panasonic DMC-ZS3 (DMC-TZ7 in Europe) packs a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 12x optical zoom into a compact body. Panasonic TZ7 records HD movies (1280 x 720-pixels) in AVCHD Lite, which lets you shoot beautiful HD video with almost twice the recording time compared to the conventional Motion JPEG. Optical zoom can be used when shooting motion images. TZ7 is also the world’s first compact camera to feature Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, which records dynamic, true-to-life audio that brings out the power of the HD video. The wind cut function minimizes distracting sound from the background during audio recording. The new Face Recognition function memorizes faces automatically and works to optimize both focus and exposure settings by prioritizing on the registered person’s face.

The Panasonic DMC-TZ7’s LCD features a large 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot resolution, and a wide-viewing angle that lets you frame your shot in a variety of ways for both shooting and viewing. LUMIX’s acclaimed Intelligent LCD function also automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. This versatile photographic tool lets you shoot everything from sweeping vistas at the 25mm wide-angle setting to dynamic 300mm telephoto shots. And the lens system’s exquisite rendering ability lets you capture even the subtle nuances of the sights and scenes in your travels.
