Panasonic DMC-TZ10

At first the technocrats tried to make mobile phones as potent as digital cameras, equipping them with functions like advanced ISO settings and White Balance facilities. Nowadays, the reverse is taking place with compact cameras being equipped with functions that one would recognise in a mobile phone. It began with making cameras with touch sensitive LCDs, making them capable of transferring pictures from camera to our favourite social networking sites and now it goes on to equipping them with GPS geo-tagging functions. One clear example of such a camera is the Lumix DMC-TZ10 from Panasonic. This compact camera, equipped with GPS facility, comes with resolution of 12.1 mp and a travel zoom with the capacity of 12x.

Design and Functioning

The Lumix DMC-TZ10 from Panasonic belongs to the category of super zoom or travel zoom cameras that come in ‘small packages’ i.e. they some in the dimensions of an ultra compact camera rather a miniature SLR with non detachable lens. It comes in colours which are rather conservative and yet sophisticated like Navy Blue, Metallic Silver, Midnight Black and Devil’s Red. Because of the fact that it is equipped with GPS geo tagging mechanism, the location data where the photo was taken is automatically embedded with its latitude and longitude in the EXIF data. These geo-tagged images can be pinpointed on the maps of social media internet maps to be shared with one’s friends and families. This camera also comes with Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Priority (S) and Manual (M) exposure modes for creative photographers, in addition to Intelligent Auto and a variety of scene modes for beginners. It is equipped with 15MB and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
