Reduced Noise With GPS Technology – Latest Pana Lumix

  • Charged via USB
  • Built-in GPS
  • 14.1 megapixel sensor

Panasonic has released the seventh generation in its TZ Series of Lumix travel zoom cameras, with the new DMC-TZ30 now covering even wider shooting situations with a 20x zoom and 24mm wide-angle lens, redesigned MOS sensor, Full HD AVCHD and MP4 recording, and enhanced GPS functionality, supported by the latest creative effects.

The Lieca DC Vario-Elmar lens is claimed to be the slimmest in its class, and the camera body is also lighter than its predecessor.  Its 14.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor reduces noise and provides advanced performance in low light, and responsiveness has been enhanced with 0.1 sec Light Speed AF. Full HD AVCHD movie recording has been upgraded to 1920 x 1080/50p.

The built-in GPS functionality automatically embeds the location, latitude and longitude where a photo was taken in the EXIF data.  This is now supplemented with map data which can be installed from a bundled DVD.

This camera gives the user creative control with a wide selection of artistic filter effects to apply when recording and retouching.  Intelligent Auto (iA) is now even more intuitive with the addition of High Dynamic Range (HDR) which ensures high-contrast images are detailed and sharp.

For added convenience when you are travelling, the DMC-TZ30 can now be charged via USB as well as by conventional AC power.
