Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ1
PAGE 1/4
Panasonic is pleased to introduce the new Lumix 5-megapixel DMC-TZ1, the world's smallest 10x optical zoom digital camera. The powerful 10x optical zoom Leica DC lens is incorporated into a compact, easy-to-carry body, made possible by the world's first example of the integration of a retractable lens system with folded optics technology. Like other models in the Lumix digital camera series, the Panasonic TZ1, of course, features Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which has now become a standard feature for all digital cameras in the market. Hand-shake has always been a critical issue in certain photographic situations such as long zoom shots, low-light indoor, night time and macro shooting.

Panasonic DMC-TZ1 - Venus Engine III - With even the slightest hand-shake can spoil the captured image. However, Mega O.I.S. helps you to take clear, beautiful pictures without any picture quality deterioration. An additional boost to the Panasonic TZ1's performance is the newly developed image processing LSI, the Venus Engine III, which detects both chromatic and luminance noise separately and suppresses only the chromatic noise levels, which drastically reduce image quality, as a result, shooting at ISO 800 in full resolution is made possible.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 - High resolution LCD Display- The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 has an intuitively bright 2.5" large, high resolution (207k pixels) LCD which offers clear and easy viewing, even in low-light situations, by automatically increasing the brightness levels as appropriate. Furthermore, the Panasonic TZ1 also boasts a recording capacity of 250 pictures (CIPA) on a single charge, thanks to the advanced Venus Engine III which consumes only 80% of the power utilized by the Venus Engine II, despite the camera's significantly improved performance levels. In terms of the camera's response time, the release time lag is as short as 0.006 sec. minimum and the shutter interval is approx. 0.5 sec. Additionally, the adoption of a Linear AF system further quickens the AF function, which has already been highly evaluated for its rapid response time in other Lumix camera models. The Panasonic digital camera starts up in an industry-leading 0.95 sec., placing it ahead of the pack of other high zoom cameras in the market. In the burst shooting mode, with the TZ1 is possible to shoot at three frames per second in full resolution. It also allows unlimited consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the built-in memory or the SD memory card.
