Megapixels:
A megapixel is one million pixels. It is commonly used to describe the resolution of digital cameras. For example, a 7.2 megapixel camera is capable of capturing roughly 7,200,000 pixels. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Therefore, the megapixel count is a significant specification to look for when buying a digital camera.

Overview

Overview

LUMIX DMC-SZ1 16.1 Megapixel Digital Camera

10x Optical Zoom in a Slim Body

The DMC-SZ1 features a powerful 10x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact body can easily go wherever you go for both everyday snapshots and traveling. In addition, this single camera lets you record 10x optical zoom in video recording.

20x iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom)

The iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 10x optical can virtually extend to 20x equivalent.

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens

The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling. 

*Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

New LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR Lens System

The new high-quality LEICA DC lens system is even more versatile with 25mm ultra wide-angle to powerful 10x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups including 4 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, adoption of ultra thin lens for its new structure optical system makes the unit's overall length short to fit in the slim body despite its versatile zoom range from ultra wide to telephoto.

Passing Leica's stringent standards, the DMC-SZ1 boasts exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity with minimum distortion and flare.

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images.

Fun Functions Shooting

Miniature Effect

The Miniature Effect Mode in which the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to look the picture like a diorama.

Panorama Shot

Panorama makes it possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous image.

Auto Retouch

The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button. Appropriate retouch is automatically applied depending on the image if the image was shot too dark, it can be clear and bright to look it nicer with this function.

Sonic Speed AF (SZ1)

The Sonic Speed AF and a quick start-up time give the DMC-SZ1 super high-speed response that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities.

AF Tracking

Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus.

High-speed Burst Mode (SZ1)

The DMC-SZ1 lets you snap off consecutive shots at approx. 1.3 fps in 16.1-megapixel full-resolution*4. You can also select High-speed Burst Mode that fires off up to approx. 10 fps with 3-megapixel resolution*5, which is highly sufficient for photo prints.

*1 The number of recordable images depends on the memory card size and battery life.

*2 Max. 4 images. The focus, exposure and white balance are fixed with the first picture for the burst.

*3 Max. 100 images.

*4 Max. 100 images. The focus is fixed with the first picture for the burst.

*5 In 3-megapixel (4:3), 2.5-megapixel (3:2), 2-megapixel (16:9) or 2.5-megapixel (1:1) recording. Max. 15-100 images. The focus, exposure and white balance are fixed with the first picture for the burst. The consecutive shooting speed varies depending on the memory card.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots and capture moments in both photo and video recording. The Intelligent Resolution technology, 20x iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) and Intelligent Burst are always activated in the iA Mode.

Shake Detection - MEGA O.I.S.*1

Gyrosensors detect hand-shaking and the O.I.S. lens shifts to compensate, helping prevent blurring caused by hand-shaking.

Motion Detection Intelligent ISO Control*1

The Intelligent ISO Control function detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions.

Face Detection - Face Detection AF/AE*1

The Face Detection function detects faces anywhere in the frame and automatically chooses the optimal focus and exposure. The Face Detection also features the Digital Red-eye Correction (Red-eye Removal) in photo recording.

Subject Detection AF Tracking

Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically and continuously tracks it and keeps it in focus and proper exposure.

Scene Detection - Intelligent Scene Selector*4

The Intelligent Scene Selector senses the ambient conditions and automatically selects one of Scene Modes: Photo (Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait*5, Night Scenery, Sunset or Handheld Night Shot), Video (Scenery, Portrait, Macro or Low Light).

Happy Mode

The Happy Mode optimizes color, saturation and brightness to make images more vivid and true to the color of the scene you remember.

Light Detection - Intelligent Exposure*1

The Intelligent Exposure corrects the brightness in parts of the image that are too dark due to insufficient lighting, backlighting or use of the flash. This produces natural images that are close to the way they actually look to the human eye.

*1 The MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE, and Intelligent Exposure are automatically turned on in the iA Mode and can be turned on or off in the Normal Picture Mode or some Scene Modes.

*2 The picture size may be reduced.

*4 With some subject and shooting conditions, it is just not possible to judge the best shooting details. When this happens, it is recommended that you shoot with the Scene Mode that best suits your purpose.

*5 In the iA Mode, the Night Portrait is not identified when the flash is turned off.

3.0-inch, 230,000-dot High-resolution LCD (SZ1)

The DMC-SZ1 features a 3.0-inch, 230,000-dot high-resolution Intelligent LCD.

LUMIX Image Uploader

You can upload images to Facebook (photos) and YouTube (videos) with simple operation.

* LUMIX Image Uploader starts up automatically on the computer the supplied software "PHOTOfunSTUDIO Ver. 6.0" or later is installed.

PHOTOfunSTUDIO

The PHOTOfunSTUDIO 8.0 Standard (SZ1) Edition makes it possible to sort and organize photos not only of those newly taken but also of those stored in your computer with quick start-up and fast read-in of images.

Recorded videos can be edited with the Short Movie Story function and written into MPEG2 to burn onto a DVD disc. You can also enjoy making photo and video slideshows with a variety of effects and use your iTunes music library as background music.

Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD.
