The New Flagship Travel Zoom Camera LUMIX DMC-TZ220

Powerful 15x Optical Zoom and 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor

Featuring 4K Video/ 4K PHOTO Capability

Panasonic is proud to introduce our latest flagship model of the popular "Travel Zoom" TZ Series the LUMIX DMC-TZ220. Enhancing its zoom power to 15x, the LUMIX TZ220 with 1-inch large High Sensitivity MOS Sensor offers more versatile use and high picture quality, including ultra-high resolution 4K video.

The LUMIX TZ220's 24mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 15x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-360mm) and 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+(Optical Image Stabilizer Plus)*1 offer a versatile angle of view while suppressing hand-shake in both photo and video recording. It also enables stunning macro shots as close as 3cm. For even more creative photography, the LUMIX TZ220 integrates a new L.Monochrome mode in Photo Style, which offers impressive monochrome pictures with rich gradation like that of B/W film.

Adoption of a 1-inch MOS sensor allows for high quality image recording with stunning details. The combination of the High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves max. ISO 12800 high sensitivity recording with stunning picture quality that goes beyond the usual limit of digital compact cameras.

The LVF (Live View Finder) is also upgraded on the LUMIX TZ220. It integrates a new 0.21-inch 2,330K-dot equiv. LVF that boasts a high magnification ratio of approximately 1.45x / 0.53x (35mm camera equivalent). Both LVF and the 3-inch rear monitor with touch control system provide an approximately 100% field of view.

The LUMIX TZ220 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p / 25p(50Hz Area) 30p(60Hz Area) or 24p in MP4. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO to capture those unmissable moments at 30 fps and save in 8-megapixel high resolution photos. Auto Marking and Sequence Composition are newly added in addition to Post Focus and Focus Stacking to make 4K PHOTO even easier-to-use, in more creative way.

The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology*2 and excels in both speed and accuracy, resulting in ultra-fast auto focusing of approx. 0.1 sec*3.

The LUMIX TZ220 includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) enables constant connection with a smartphone/tablet with minimum power consumption.

Armoured with aluminium plates to form a sleek, solid profile with a seamless surface from front to top, the new LUMIX TZ220 offers high durability and stable telephoto shooting thanks to hand grips at both the front and rear sides.
