The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera incorporates a powerful 6x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 37-222mm on a 35mm film camera) and a 7.2 megapixel resolution for superb image detail and the ability to zoom into the most intimate details of your subject - all in a compact and ergonomically designed camera body that you will find to be a pleasure to carry with you at all times. The camera also incorporates the impressive Venus Engine III image processing engine that gives the camera even higher image quality and speedy processing. With the inclusion of a longer zoom lens on such a compact camera, Image stabilization becomes even more useful. Therefore, Panasonic incorporated the acclaimed Intelligent Image Stabilization system with MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Intelligent ISO Control to compensate for the effects of hand-shake and subject movement, making it possible to capture clear, crisp photos indoors, at night, during action shots, or when taking macro close-ups.
In addition, the DMC-LZ7 incorporates a large and bright 2.5-inch LCD that makes it easy to frame and view your images, and video clips. The user friendly menu and its graphical user interface have also been optimized using brighter colors for easier viewability. The DMC-LZ7 is powered by two simple AA batteries, which can be purchased anywhere, and the camera also accepts large-capacity SDHC memory cards, giving users more flexibility in shooting and recording.
