Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 Manuals


The DMC-TZ8 (also known as the DMC-ZS5 in the USA) is the latest travel-zoom camera from Panasonic, featuring a 12x, 25-300mm lens housed in a compact body that can fit in your pocket. Successor to the TZ6 model, the DMC-TZ8 has a 14.5-megapixel CCD sensor and shoots with up to 12.1-megapixel resolution, reproducing images with the lens set from 25mm to 300mm in any of three aspect ratios — 4:3, 3:2 or 16:9 — while maintaining the same diagonal angle of view. The new Intelligent Resolution function can be used to digitally boost the zoom ratio to 16x without hardly any loss in quality, or to simply make still images and video look better, at least according to Panasonic. The TZ8 also implements a long requested feature for the TZ-series — A, S and M exposure modes for creative photographers, in addition to Intelligent Auto and a variety of scene modes for beginners. 720p HD video recording in the Motion JPEG format, high-speed and high-performance Venus Engine VI processor, POWER O.I.S. anti-shake system and a 2.7-inch LCD screen with 230k dots complete the headline specifications. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 is available in silver or black for £299 / $349.
