Offering all of the features that Panasonics multiple award winning TZ range of cameras is renowned for including a remarkable 12x optical zoom in a compact, stylish body and 25mm ultra wide angle lens the TZ7 goes one step further to offer AVCHD Lite (1) motion picture recording, making the TZ7 a truly versatile proposition.
The TZ7 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 in 35mm film equivalence, is almost inconceivable in such a small, lightweight camera.
