Panasonic LUMIX ZR1

The Panasonic LUMIX ZR1 is a digital camera that is touted to feature the world's first 0.3mm thin aspherical lens which supports 25 mm-ultra-wide-angle, 8x optical zoom on its LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens. With a zoom range of 25-200mm, the ZR1 allows for both expansive scenery photos as well as close-ups. This zoom also works during video recording. The 12.1-megapixel resolution allows photos to be enlarged while still retaining detail. Another feature of the ZR1 is its Auto Focus (AF). Combined with a start-up of 1.1 second, the ZR1 is able to catch action shots. Other features on this digital camera includes a 2.7-inch Intelligent LCD, and a battery life with image processing LSI called Venus Engine V which allows users to take approximately 330 pictures during a single charge; Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode with POWER Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.), which doubles the repression power, compared to MEGA O.I.S., the previous image stabilization system, to help capture blur-free images.

Features

The Panasonic LUMIX ZR1 also supports additional Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode features Such as Hand-Shake Component which reduces the problem of natural hand-shaking that goes along with pressing the shutter button; Face Recognition that focuses up to six faces and up to three can be simultaneously recognized to show their names once registered; Travel Mode where users can organize information related to travel, including destination, date and time (playback of these photos is designated by the date or period of travel on the calendar menu interface); High Dynamic Mode which helps capture a scene with moderate exposure even when the scene may contain both bright and dark areas; and PHOTOfunSTUDIO 4.0 software which allows user to view, edit and archive captured photos and videos. It features modes to speed-up operation and also allows users to store and sort photos by a specific, recognized face in the image. The LUMIX DMC-ZR1 is retailed at the price of $279.95 and will be available in September 2009 in black, red, blue, and silver.
