Product Features

  • 10x optical zoom in a slim body
    The DMC-SZ7 features a powerful 10x optical zoom lens. This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact body can easily go wherever you go - for both everyday snapshots and traveling. In addition, this single camera lets you record 10x optical zoom in video recording.
  • 25 mm ultra wide-angle lens
    The 25 mm ultra wide-angle lens has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35 mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.
  • 14.1-megapixel MOS sensor
    The DMC-SZ7 features the 14.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor that boasts high-speed signal output and high-sensitivity image recording for making many advanced features possible. It also allows shooting images up to ISO3200 in full resolution.
  • Venus Engine
    The DMC-SZ7's Venus Engine has quad-CPUs for processing large amount of full HD data at high-speed. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range)
    The DMC-SZ7 integrates HDR (High Dynamic Range) in the iA Mode. Two images consecutively shot at different exposure levels are overlaid to produce a single composite picture without whiteout (over-exposure) or blackout (under-exposure).
  • 10x optical zoom in video recording
    The 10x optical zoom lets you zoom up close to subjects that you can't actually approach, even when shooting videos. This single camera will capture both photos and videos of highly natural expressions from people and animals, dynamic sports scenes and countless other situations, exactly as you see them.
  • Handheld night shot mode
    The handheld night shot mode generates a beautiful night scenery with illumination by multi-layering the images shot consecutively. Bright, glamorous night scenery can be recorded without using a tripod.
  • AF tracking
    Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus.
  • High-speed consecutive shooting
    The developed MOS sensor helps to realize the high-speed burst shooting. You can take a series of shots, then choose the ones you like the best and delete the rest.
  • Large, 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot LCD
    The DMC-SZ7 has a 3.0-inch 460,000-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD function also automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. It lets you share the fun of viewing images with family and friends, too.
