Ultra Compact 25mm Lens and 16X Intelligent Zoom, Sonic Speed Autofocus, Power Optical Image Stabilizer, Enhanced technology to further

25mm Ultra Wide-angle 12x Optical Zoom LEICA DC Lens

The DMC-ZS5 features a 25mm ultra wide-angle* 12x optical zoom f/3.3-4.9 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-300mm). Incorporating Panasonic's advanced optical technologies, this lens system is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups, with 2 ED (Extra Low Dispersion) lenses and 2 aspherical lenses / 3 aspherical surfaces while preserving compactness. This lens system enables a remarkable 25 to 300mm range of focal length in this compact body. The powerful zoom of the DMC-ZS5can be freely controlled even when shooting motion images. Inheriting the fine rendering and outstanding quality of the LEICA ELMAR lens, this easy-to-carry camera delivers beautiful images any time, any place.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

Powerful 12x Optical Zoom

The DMC-ZS5 features a powerful 12x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-300mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. It is also available in movie recording with the mechanism designed to minimize the noise of auto focusing or zooming. And its slim, compact, pocket-sized body can easily go wherever you do for both everyday snapshots and traveling.

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens

The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.

16x Intelligent Zoom / 23.4x Extra Optical Zoom

Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-ZS5 which extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the picture quality even combining a digital zoom. This means the 12x optical can virtually extend to 16x equivalent. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 23.4x* by using the center part of the large CCD to bring subjects even closer.
*At 3-megapixel resolution or less.

Sonic Speed AF

The Sonic Speed AF system in the DMC-ZS5 has a maximum speed of approx. 0.35 second (wide-end) / 0.41 second (tele-end) for auto focusing*. It includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance. You can quickly get moving subjects in focus, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.

POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Shake Detection

Just about everyone has had the experience of taking a photo at night and hoping to capture all the memories and beauty, only to be disappointed at the poor result. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)* nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds.
Panasonic's accumulated optical technologies, the MEGA O.I.S. has been incorporated into LUMIX from the early stage of digital camera development. This helped show all digital camera users the absolute need for hand-shake compensation, and led to its prevalence throughout the industry. And now, Panasonic has worked on the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed.
*The POWER O.I.S. is automatically turned on in the iA Mode and can be turned on or off in the P/A/S/M Mode or some Scene Modes.

5 out of 5 stars   Good camera! Love it!
By XQ (Philadelphia, PA) January 04, 2011
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS5K LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera (Black), 16GB SD Card, and Camera Case (E3PNDMCZS5K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Colors, Easy to use
Cons: Not so great at night, Could be smaller
Other Comments: I made good use of it while sightseeing in New York city. Pictures came out great with just the Auto setting. The colors are wonderful, especially outdoor during the day. And it is very easy to use. I love the menu setting, it makes photo shoot so easy, quick and fun. Video works great too, it records well with the lighting and the sound. No major cons. It would be better if it could be smaller. And it doesn't work very well with dim light.
