Compact Digital Camera SZ7 – Slim Design with 10x Optical Zoom LEICA DC Lens Featuring Full HD Video Recording

The DMC-SZ7 features powerful 10x optical zoom LEICA DC lens from 25mm ultra wide-angle that fits in the slim, compact body (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). The new lens system makes the unit’s overall length short to fit in the slim body despite its versatile zoom range from ultra wide to telephoto. The 10x optical zoom increases its power to 20x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function. This is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology.
The DMC-SZ7 is capable of recording full HD 1920 × 1080 videos in AVCHD / MP4 format. The AVCHD format excels in the compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray DiscTM players. The MP4 format has high compatibility with computers. A separate button lets you instantly start recording video without the need of extra settings. The 10x optical zoom and iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode are available in video recording. Videos also come with the high-quality sound system of Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator.

The 14.1-megapixel MOS sensor boasts high-speed signal output and high-sensitivity image recording for making many advanced features possible. The excellent S/N ratio of MOS sensor and the Intelligent Noise Reduction system in the Venus Engine makes both photo and video shot at any sensitivity from low to high boast outstanding clearness. The 14.1-megapixel MOS sensor also allows shooting images up to ISO3200 in full resolution.

The high-speed digital signal output technology lets the DMC-SZ7 shoot 10 fps in 14-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF. It also enables the camera to record full HD smooth video. The frame rate, AF setting and the recording resolution can be easily selected according to the movement of the subject. The DMC-SZ7 boasts approx.0.1 sec Light Speed AF that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities together with a quick start-up.

With the HDR (High Dynamic Range) in the iA Mode, several images taken with different exposures are combined into a single properly exposed picture with rich gradation. The Miniature Effect Mode defocuses the surroundings to make it look like a diorama, and the video is played back in 10x fast-forwarding making it more comical to watch. The Panorama Shot Mode makes it possible to shoot horizontal / vertical panoramic images. The Creative Retouch comprehends 6 filters: Toy Effect, Soft Focus, Dynamic Monochrome, Expressive, High Key and Retro.
