The Panasonic DMC-TZ6EB-K packs a remarkable 12x optical zoom and a 25mm wide-angle Leica lens into a stylish, compact body.
The 25mm lens (equivalent to 22-300mm on a 35mm film camera) allows you to easily capture a large group of people, or expansive architectural structures and landscapes with dynamic width and rich perspective. This particularly handy in situations where you cannot step back or move away from a subject ideal for shooting group portraits in a small room.
Youll be able to blow up your best shots to poster size thanks to a 10.1 megapixel resolution and you can frame and playback your stills with ease using the bright 2.7 inch LCD screen.
Panasonics advanced Venus Engine IV image processing engine is able to record at high sensitivity settings, and it will reduce picture noise at different stages throughout image processing.
If you press the iA button then point and shoot, the camera does all the hard work for you: detecting and correcting hand-shake, focusing on faces, removing unwanted red-eye, selecting the optimal scene mode, correcting brightness. Oh, and did we mention it also continually tracks a moving subject, keeping it in focus?
The DMC-TZ6EB-K also records stunning full-size movies in wide-aspect VGA (848x480) at 30fps, enabling you to view your recordings on a widescreen television.
