24x Super-Zoom Camera With Full HD Video - Packing a powerful zoom lens, high performance imaging devices, a host of functions and manual control in a compact body, the DMC-FZ150 is highly versatile – perfect for advanced amateur photographers with its high quality photo and video.
Panasonic has unveiled the new DMC-FZ150 super zoom compact digital camera.
It boasts a 24x super zoom and full HD video recording.
This new addition to the award winning FZ series has a 25mm wide angle, and a powerful 24x optical LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with Panasonic’s Black Box Nano Surface Coating technology to minimize light reflection that causes ghosts and flares.
It boasts a very high picture quality, with a 12.1 megapixel MOS sensor and Venus Engine system, ensuring high performance in terms of sensitivity and speed.
The camera captures videos in 1920x1080 50p, to create beautiful HD movies. Panasonic’s great iA, intelligent Auto, is also available on this movie mode.
The camera also features full manual control, to enable complete creativity with photo taking.
The side lever is newly added on the left side of the lens barrel, making it smoother to zoom when concentrating on the shutter operation with the right hand. Focus can also be changed with this lever, which is convenient in video recording.
The DMC FZ150 is available from October. For more information please visit the Panasonic website.
