Panasonic Lumix ZS20: Thinnest 20× Optical Camera

 |  |  |  |  January 31, 2012

There are quite a few compact digital cameras on the market right now, and since manufacturers keep releasing new ones, it’s not always easy to decide which you should get. If you’re looking for a compact camera, but want a long-range optical zoom, the new Panasonic Lumix ZS20 is supposed to be the slimmest point-and-shoot with a 20× zoom lens.

The camera measures 1.1 inches in width, so it’s pretty thin for a camera with that much real zoom range. Its new CMOS sensor has been optimized for low-light conditions. The camera’s Leica lens allows to reach from 24mm to the 480mm range. The 14MP sensor has noise reduction features and a new autofocus system. It can shoot 1080p AVCHD video at 60 fps, and 1080p MP4 recording at 30 fps. It also offers GPS for geo-tagging of photos.

The camera has both touchscreen controls and actual buttons, which is refreshing, since more and more cameras seem to be going strictly with touchscreens these days.

The Lumix ZS20 will be released in March 2012, and will list for $350 (USD).
