The Panasonic ZS25's optic is very flexible for shooting wide-angle scenes. This is shot at the widest angle of the lens.

The ZS25 can shoot panoramas, which requires a simple sweep across the scene with the camera. For the first time, creative filters can also be applied to the scene if required.

Super Zoom Camera TZ35 - Featuring 20x Optical Zoom and High Image Quality

The DMC-TZ35 incorporates 24mm ultra wide-angle 20x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm), which is outstanding in class for its quality and versatility. Thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent 40x Zoom is available with minimum deterioration of picture quality even combining the digital zoom. The Panasonic's black box technology Nano Surface Coating is applied for stunning clarity with minimum flare and ghost. The zoom functions are also available in the video recording.

The combination of the 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and the Venus Engine empowers the camera with high performance image recording capability. The high speed digital signal output technology realizes high speed consecutive shooting and full HD video recording. It enables shooting at 5 fps with continuous AF with mechanical shutter or at 10 fps in high speed burst mode, and burst shooting with flash is also available. It also contributes to the Light Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities.

The new Creative Panorama function with 12 filters allows the users to apply effects to create a distinctive horizontal / vertical panoramic image produced with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous pictures. The DMC-TZ35 also integrates popular Creative Control / Creative Retouch featuring a total of 14 filter effects. The Creative Control lets users shoot with a filter effect while checking how it makes difference on the picture and the Creative Retouch enables applying a filter effect on the picture after shooting in camera.

The DMC-TZ35 can record high-resolution full HD 1,920 x 1,080 50i videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. It also complies with 25p in MP4 format which has high compatibility with PCs or smartphones for editing or sharing the videos. The POWER O.I.S. is available in video recording to powerfully suppress blur. It also integrates Active Mode which suppresses blur especially shooting at wide-angle while walking.

The iA mode is a comprehensive integration of the POWER O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Motion Deblur, Face Recognition, Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure, Intelligent HDR, Intelligent Burst, and AF Tracking - the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots. For more effective countermeasure against hand-shake which tends to occur in shooting with high zoom, the POWER O.I.S. is equipped to powerfully suppress blur.
