CES 2014: Panasonic Announces the LUMIX DMC-SZ8 Camera with 12x Optical Zoom

Panasonic is proud to introduce the DMC-SZ8, a new digital compact camera with a 12x optical zoom and Wi-Fi® connectivity. The versatile 24mm ultra wide angle lens with a powerful 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 24mm to 288mm on a 35mm camera) features the Intelligent Zoom function, making it possible to extend the zoom up to 24x by combining digital zoom with less deterioration of image quality. With the Wi-Fi® connectivity, users can connect the camera directly to their smartphone/tablet without a need of cabling or searching for a Wi-Fi® hotspot. In addition, users can utilize smartphone/tablet for a secondary monitor of the camera that enables setting focus, zooming or releasing the shutter remotely from the camera. With a motion picture button, the 720p HD video recording can be started instantly. The iA (Intelligent Auto) mode lets users leave everything to the camera to take beautiful images with its Optical Image Stabilizer, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and Face Detection. Other features include 3" 460k-dot Intelligent LCD, HDR, and iA Mode.
