Panasonic DMC-TZ8

Superzoom, mega zoom, ultra zoom or travel zoom, whatever be the name given – most of us are used to seeing them as bonsai versions of SLR cameras with non-detachable lenses. It’s very rare for us to come across a travel zoom camera that fits into the dimensions of a compact camera – into a small, pocket sized shape and sleek design. Thankfully, the LUMIX DMC-TZ8 from Panasonic does fit into the description explained above. This travel zoom camera comes with the total resolution of 14.5 mp and a zoom capacity of a whopping 12x.

Design and Functioning

As has already been mentioned, the LUMIX DMC-TZ8 from Panasonic combines in it, the zoom capacity of 12x, in a sleek body well within the dimensions of an ultra compact entry level camera. Weighing a mere 191gs, this camera is available in two conservative colours of Midnight Black and Metallic Silver. The TZ8 features a high-quality LEICA DC VARIO ELMAR 25mm ultra-wide-angle lens with a 12x optical zoom. A lens like this, with a range from 25mm to 300mm, is almost inconceivable in such a small, lightweight camera. It includes Panasonic’s iA (Intelligent Auto) mode – a hallmark of Lumix cameras – featuring Face Recognition, AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure. It also goes on to offer manual control for advanced expressive shooting. It has A(Aperture Priority) / S(Shutter Speed Priority) / M(Manual Exposure) modes for step up users to enjoy the creative shots. It comes with 40Mb of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.
