Panasonic has launched DMC-TZ110 and DMC-TZ80, the latest LUMIX compact camera
models in the popular "Travel Zoom" TZ series.
Pocket-sized and user-friendly, TZ110 and TZ80 go beyond the
limits of a compact digital camera. The premium 20.1-megapixel
LUMIX TZ110 has a 1-inch MOS Sensor which is four times larger than
the sensor found on a conventional compact digital camera, and the
TZ80 has an 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity half-inch MOS Sensor.
Both models can capture wonderfully clear images with minimal
The MOS Sensor works hand-in-hand with LUMIX's newly developed
Venus Engine image processor to achieve stunning colour and picture
quality, even in low-light shooting situations.
Both models are equipped with LUMIX's prestigious LEICA
ultra-wide angle lenses. Photographers can get closer to the action
with the TZ110's 25mm, 10x optical zoom lens and the TZ80's 24mm,
30x optical zoom lens. LUMIX's LEICA DC VARIO lenses offer
photographers exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity
and minimal distortion and flare. Meanwhile, the 5-Axis HYBRID
O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabiliser Plus) system compensates for
blurring in photo and video caused by handshake.
Both models can record photos and videos in stunningly smooth
ultra-high definition 4K resolution and photographers can also take
advantage of 4K Photo Mode which allows the photographer to capture
fleeting photo opportunities, by recording 8MP video at 30 fps and
allowing the selection of key moments after. There are three modes
which can be used to take advantage of the 4K Photo function
including 4K Burst mode, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) mode and 4K
Pre-Burst mode which captures 60 shots at the press of a button, 30
from before the shutter is pressed.
Photographers can also utilise the Post Focus function which
allows users to choose their desired focal point after shooting.
Photographers can get multiple shots with different focus points,
and while in Post Focus mode photographers can also use fine
adjustment, 5x enlarged view and Focus Peaking options.
Both the LUMIX TZ110 and TZ80 include a 0.2-inch 1,166K-dot LVF
(Live View Finder) and a 3.0-inch 1,040K-dot rear monitor, and both
cameras have a newly integrated touch control system. The Control
Ring and independent dials located on the lens barrel provide
user-friendly operation and more control over exposure and zoom. It
also provides easier access to frequently-used settings such as
aperture, shutter speed, focus, filter effects and scene mode.
In addition, Wi-Fi® connectivity means that users can connect
TZ110 and TZ80 to their smartphone or tablet to expand the
flexibility in shooting, storing and sharing images.
Andrew Reid, LUMIX Product Manager, Panasonic New Zealand
commented, "Compact and incredibly easy to use, the new Panasonic
LUMIX TZ110 and TZ80 cameras are designed to combine both large MOS
sensors and powerful optical zoom without compromising
versatility. They are the ultimate travel zoom camera for users who
enjoy high-quality photo, video and creative freedom."
Both LUMIX DMC-TZ80 and DMC-TZ110 cameras will be available from
Harvey Norman and specialist camera retailers from March 2016.
