The 14.1-megapixel Lumix DMC-TZ30 incorporates the newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens, extending its optical zoom to 20x, which increases to 40x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function. Its 14.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor, Venus Engine, and high sensitivity image recording capability combines to deliver 1920 x 1080 fluid Full HD video recording.
A sister model to the TZ30, the DMC-TZ25 combines a 12.1-megapixel MOS sensor and the Venus Engine to achieve image quality. Boasting a 24mm ultra wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens, its 16x optical zoom increases to 32x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function.
Engineered for outdoor activities, the 12.1-megapixel DMC-FT4 is waterproof to 12m, shockproof to 2m, freezeproof to -10 degrees celsius and even dustproof. With a built-in GPS system, it is compatible with high-speed, large-capacity signal processing required for 1920 x 1080 Full HD video recording.
Like the FT4, the 16.1-megapixel DMC-FT20 is built to withstand outdoor conditions, and is capable of video recording in 720p. Waterproof to 5m, freezeproof to -10 degrees celsius, shockproof to 1.5m and dustproof, it features a 25mm ultra wide angle of view, and 4x optical zoom, which can be increased to 8x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function.
Equipped with 24mm ultra wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMARIT lens with 5x optical zoom, the 12.1-megapixel DMC-FX80 can efficiently shoot dynamic landscapes as well as capture moving subjects in low-lit environments. Instant image sharing via Facebook or YouTube with any PC is made possible with the incorporation of the Lumix Image Uploader.
Lastly, the 14.1-megapixel DMC-LS6 offers a 26mm wide angle lens with a 5x optical zoom. This entry-level camera runs on AA batteries, and incorporates O.I.S to combat against shaky hands while shooting.
