Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ1 boasts a high-quality 10x (24-240mm) ultra wide-angle LEICA DC optical zoom lens in the slim, compact body. The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake.
The DMC-SZ1 feature 2 new shooting modes – Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. The Miniature Effect Mode in which the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to make the picture looks like a diorama. The Panorama Shot in the Scene Mode makes it possible to shoot horizontal / vertical panoramic images by overlaying consequently shot images.
