Summary: Selecting a star ranking for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 was very challenging for me. This camera is a model that provides outstanding images in all lighting conditions, and the photos are very sharply focused.
Excerpt: Balancing light weight and a small body with excellent optics is one of Panasonic's strong points, and this Lumix model is the perfect example. The ZS20 14.1MP camera sports a 20x zoom Leica lens that will get you good, stable close up shots from far away.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 squeezes a 20x zoom lens into its compact body. It isn't the fastest camera, and the lens lags behind the competition in sharpness, but it does well at higher ISOs and has a built-in GPS.
Pros: Long zoom lens. GPS. Good high ISO performance. 1080p60 video capture.
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 ($349) is a compact travel zoom camera with a pretty elaborate GPS setup. Not only does the ZS20 log your location, it also has a database of a million landmarks and maps of ninety countries.
Summary: Panasonic’s new Lumix ZS20 compact ultrazoom offers a 20x optical zoom lens spanning the 24 to 480mm focal range in 35mm equivalents. Despite that generous focal range, the ZS20 is readily shirt pocket portable (Panasonic describes it as the world’s slimmest digital camera with a 20x zoom).
Pros: Good image quality, Fast AF performance, Manual controls
Cons: Battery charges in camera, Monitor somewhat dim, No memory card formatting in iA mode
Summary: As such, the latest ZS20 / TZ30 features a number of key benefits over its predecessor, the most important being a longer zoom, a slimmer body, built-in GPS mapping, and improvements for both photo and video quality.
Pros: Broad 20x optical zoom covers every situation in slim body., 1080p video with zooming, stereo sound and continuous AF., Built-in GPS with landmarks and basic street mapping., Touch-screen interface - just tap where you want it to focus., Fast continuous shooting up to 10fps at the full resolution.
Cons: Hard to handhold video at the longest zoom. Can't disable video IS., Touch-screen not used for text-entry., Minimal control over image quality - little if any tweaking., Record / play switch less intuitive than a plain play button.
Conclusion: Ideal para los viajeros y personas que gustan de tomar fotografías a objetos que se encuentren lejanos. Es una cámara que, además de ser portátil, es muy útil para capturar cualquier tipo de escena.
Pros: Su óptica Leica. El zoom en el lente. Capacidad para tomar fotos en 3D. Modo inteligente automático. Tiene GPS para etiquetar las imágenes.
Cons: El menú y configuración de GPS es algo complicado. La batería puede acabarse algo rápido.
