Panasonic DMC-ZS7S LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Silver)

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Ultra Compact 25mm Lens and 16X Intelligent Zoom, AVCHD Lite HD Movie Recording, Travel Mode with GPS

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens

The DMC-ZS7 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-ZS7 can 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.

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.

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

16x Intelligent Zoom / 23.4x Extra Optical Zoom

Thanks to the newly incorporated Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is available with the DMC-ZS7 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.

HD Movie in AVCHD Lite

In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-ZS7 can record high-definition motion images in AVCHD Lite. It features almost double the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format. Also, with the DMC-ZS7, it is possible to use the GPS (Global Positioning System) function to record data on the shooting location. You can view images for each geographical location by using the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition to manage the images by date and location.

Powerful 12x Optical Zoom

The addition of AVCHD Lite HD movie recording doubles the appeal of the DMC-ZS7. This single camera lets you capture virtually all images in their natural beauty. It gives you both motion and still images, and ranges from 25mm ultra wide-angle* shots of sweeping landscapes to powerful 12x optical zoom shots (35mm camera equivalent: 300mm) that pull distant subjects right up close. The mechanism design minimizes the noise of auto focusing or zooming.

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

High Quality Sound

A stereo microphone, featuring Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life stereo audio that brings out the power of your HD movies.

* Dolby and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

Travel Mode with GPS for both Photos and Movies

By simply turning on the GPS function, the location data and time are automatically updated. Great for travel recordings. The DMC-TS7 camera is acclaimed as an excellent travel companion because of a wide shooting range and hybrid recording capability of high quality photos and movies. The DMC-ZS7 further enhances its value by adding a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) unit into the camera.

The DMC-TS7 features special Playback Modes.

Place name information (Country, State, City and Landmark*2) is displayed on the shooting screen real-time and recording them on the photo/movie.
The area information: 173 countries or regions!
The landmark information: More than 500,000!

The area information covers 173 countries or regions for global use. Plus, more than 500,000 of landmark information covers 73 countries or regions.

You can playback the geo-tagged photo/movie by the recorded place names either in the camera or on computer via the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.1 HD Edition.

Connect to a TV with an HDMI cable*3 to view your memories on a large screen.

*1 The information of movie is recorded in EXIF for the Motion JPEG files and in the maker note for the AVCHD Lite files.
*2 The information of Landmark may not be displayed depending on the country or region.
*3 Requires the optional RP-CDHM15/CDHM30 mini HDMI cable. The output resolution of the DMC-ZS7 can be selected as 1080i, 720p or 480p. Please confirm that the TV you are connecting to has an HDMI input terminal compatible with the selected signal. Depending on the cable used, this function may not be possible. Panasonic HDMI cables are highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars   Panasonic, the best kept secret
By artlady (Rohnert Park) May 03, 2011
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7S LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Silver) (PNDMCZS7S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Great Zoom, Good in Low Light
Cons:
Other Comments: This is my 3rd Panasonic Lumix. I have always thought the Leica lens was one of the best lenses around. The quality is great, it is easy to figure out how to use it. You are not paying for a better known name, you are paying for quality in the camera itself. I LOVE IT!

Pros: Great Zoom, Good in Low Light

Other Comments: Great little camera that takes good pics and nice looking video on auto mode. Easy to use camera for dummies who don't want to hassle with a multitude of camera settings. I used the Ai mode almost exclusively on a recent trip and was happy with the results. The zoom is great for wildlife shots, just be sure to keep a steady hand.

4 out of 5 stars   Small size, excellent performance
By John the Nut (Daily City, CA) July 09, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7S LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Silver) (PNDMCZS7S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: My wife uses the camera mainly for video. Myself use Lumix FZ50 for photos (bought from Buydig as well). While the video quality is much better than expected from a small camera. Photo quality is average. I wish there would be 4 small nibbles at the 4 corners of the LCD so that when the camera is lay on LCD side (the flat side of the camera), the screen would not touch the surface.

Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7S LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Silver) (PNDMCZS7S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons: Instruction book on CD
Other Comments: This is my 3rd Lumix in this series. Great pictures and movies so far but I haven't used all of the new and manual settings features yet. My all time biggest complaint is the instruction book now comes on a CD and I always used to take the book with me on vacations for reference...VERY inconvenient now. I may have to print some of it, ugh!

5 out of 5 stars   What a Great Camera
By Blue Eyes (Washington DC Metro) June 13, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-ZS7S LUMIX 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Intelligent Zoom (Silver) (PNDMCZS7S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera is great! I was a lifetime, dedicated user of another famous brand, but the image quality from that line seems to have deteriorated in the 6 years since I bought my last digital camera (which recently gave up the ghost). I read many reviews and settled on the Panasonic because it claimed to have a short shutter lag time, good image stabilization, an image burst feature, and most importantly, sharp photos. It has delivered on every count and I couldn't be more pleased. On a recent trip it provided great grab shots from the car and excellent pictures of young, fast-moving family members. Haven't found any cons about it yet in three weeks of picture taking. It's made me a happy gal. And I ain't *that* easy to please.
