A Step by Step Guide to the Features of the Panasonic Lumix Tz10

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

In a highly competitive compact digital camera segment of the photography market, the more features you can pack inside a small compact body, the more are the chances that you will be able to woo the potential customers. Users increasingly love having a simple no frills attached point and shoot camera that can take sharp pictures and videos to start off. However the demand does not end there and more and more users are looking for meatier megapixels, optical zoom, GPS receivers, manual controls, wireless printings and so on. Imagine a camera that has all of these and more. This is why the Panasonic Lumix tz10 is such a formidable opponent to beat in the compact segment of the digital camera market. There have been some recent launches of compact cameras with similar features; however the Panasonic still commands a good market share.

The Panasonic Lumix tz10 is a 12.1 megapixels camera and has a 12x optical zoom that open up to 25mm in the wide angle and 300mm in the telephoto range. The wide angle functionality is distinctly better and if you want that really tough shot or want to squeeze in each and every one of your extended family in one shot, this is the camera that you can rely on. The telephoto range of the Panasonic Lumix tz10 is quite good and being a compact sized camera that fits into your pocket Panasonic has done a really good job of fitting so much power into the camera. For travelers who want a small yet functional mode, the tz10 will certainly rate quite high.

Apart from some of the obvious and more illustrious features such as the built in GPS receiver, the power OIS system and the Auto Intelligent modes, that have been packed into the Panasonic Lumix tz10 there are some discreet ones that may lose the eye. Simply turn the camera so that the top side faces you and you will notice the dial on the left of the shutter release. This is a change from the earlier tz7 where the dial was towards the right of the shutter release and often created problems while shooting. Look closer to the dial and you will notice the letters 'A', 'S' and 'M'. These are the aperture priority, shutter priority and the manual modes. Panasonic has given its consumers something which is the prerogative of the DSLR users, using manual modes on a compact body.

Most digital cameras now come with a dedicated video recording button, something which the Panasonic Lumix tz10 also has. However with that it also has a dedicated exposure button for the more serious photographer. The camera supports SDHC, SDXC and SD cards. For shooting videos however it is advisable that a card of class 6 or higher is used. The camera shoots videos in two formats; the older motion JPEG and the newer AVCHD Lite. The later is a more HD TV friendly mode and also allows continuous recording for as long as the memory card can last. It has a smaller file size compared to the MPEG mode for the same length of recording.
