Summary of Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ18
It’s hard to believe a compact camera can encompass such a huge range of features. With a wide-angle lens, super zoom, HD Movie recording and a host of intelligent features, this tiny camera has everything you need to create perfect images every time. Capture beautiful images with a wide-angle lens, extra zoom and intelligent resolution The 14.1-megapixel DMC-TZ18 features a 24mm ultra wide-angle 16x optical zoom LEICA DC lens(35mm camera equivalent: 24-384mm), including Nano Surface Coating technology whichdramatically reduces ghost and flare. The 16x optical zoom can be used both in photo and movie recording. The 24mm wide-angle lens captures approximately 213% larger viewing space compared to a normal 35mm lens, making it perfect for sweeping landscapes and large group portrait shots. With the Intelligent Resolution technology, three areas (outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas) are automatically detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are clear and crisp. The Intelligent Zoom extends zoom ratio by approximately 1.3x maintaining the image quality even combining a digital zoom. 16x optical can virtually extend to 20x optical zoom equivalent without degradation of picture quality. Intelligent Auto ensures perfect shots every time POWER O.I.S. nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S, so you can take sharp, clear zoom shots without blurring. In intelligent Auto (iA) mode the camera will automatically activate POWER O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector with Sunset Mode, Intelligent Exposure and AF Tracking. The camera does all the work; all you need to worry about is composing the perfect shot. The Happy Mode even optimises colour saturation and brightness for vividly memorable scenes. High resolution LCD and manual controls help you focus on the fine details The DMC-TZ18 features a large 3.0-inch Intelligent LCD. It automatically adjusts the screen brightness as the surrounding brightness level changes. The big screen reflects fine details, making it easy to check the focus before shooting and and allowing you and your friends to enjoy viewing images together. The DMC-TZ18 provides easy-to-use manual controls. The Aperture-priority helps you create a soft-focused background for portraits or large focal areas for landscape shots. With Shutter-priority, you can choose a slow shutter to produce dynamic rendering of streaming water.
