The new LUMIX DMC-ZS100 is a premium compact travel camera that boasts performance typically associated with expensive interchangeable lens models. Despite the camera's small size, the latest addition to the LUMIX ZS range combines a host of features and a powerful 10x zoom to make it the perfect travel companion for even the most demanding photographers and videographers.

A large 1-inch MOS sensor, one of the biggest of any camera in its class, combines with Panasonic's Venus engine to capture consistently bright and beautiful images wherever your travels take you. And with innovative features such as 4K Photo and Post-Focus, it's never been easier to capture the exact frame that you visualized when looking through the lens. What's more, with simple control and connectivity, you can share your adventure with friends and family at the press of a button.

Capture your travels in outstanding quality
The 1-inch sensor's large pixels are capable of capturing more light, resulting in shots that look crisp, clear and natural, even when photographing at high ISO, such as dusk and dawn. The Venus engine also provides unrivalled color accuracy for a travel camera – the unique hues, saturation and luminosity of a multi-colored sunset, for example, are individually processed and carefully adjusted to reproduce breathtakingly authentic results.

The LUMIX DMC-ZS100 is the first in its series to incorporate a F2.8-5.9 LEICA DC lens, which allows you to achieve true-to-life images with stunning depth of field. The lens also features a versatile 10x zoom range of 25mm-250mm (35mm camera equivalent), making it ideal for photographing birds and other elusive wildlife.

In addition to stunning photo quality, the camera also provides 4K video recording capability that fits easily into your pocket. The LUMIX DMC-ZS100 offers smooth, high quality video recording in 4K 3840x2160 at 24 and 30 fps in MP4; as well as high-resolution Full HD 1920x1080 60p videos in MP4. With four times the resolution of Full HD, the resulting 4K video brings the sights and sounds of your travels to life, just as you remember capturing it.

Achieve professional quality results, every time
As well as recording high resolution videos, the camera's 4K capability also enables you to capture accurate photos like never before. For the first time in a travel camera, Panasonic's 4K Photo function allows you to extract an 8-megapixel still from 4K video (30fps) with total control and precision, so even fleeting events, such as the exact moment you hit the water diving into the sea, can be captured and enjoyed for a lifetime.

Another new addition to the LUMIX ZS range is the Post-Focus feature, which allows you to choose the focal point of any picture, even after it's taken. The LUMIX DMC-ZS100's 0.1s Light Speed Auto Focus and Depth from Defocus (DFD) capability combine to calculate the distance between the camera and the subject, capturing optimal focus for 49 individual areas within each frame. Once the photo is taken, you can then manually select the exact area you want to focus on – from the minutiae of your subject's eye, to an individual bird as a flock takes flight. What's more, from a single photo you can export multiple shots with different focal points.

In complete control of your creativity
With such a wide array of advanced functions and controls, the LUMIX DMC-ZS100 has been designed for fast and practical usability. The Live View Finder (LVF) features 1,166K-dot resolution, as well as LVF AF that detects when you're about to take a shot. The camera also provides extensive manual controls so you can put your photography skills to the test, including dedicated physical rings and dials for settings such as zoom, aperture, shutter speed, manual focus and ISO level.

Share your memories
Once you've captured an array of beautiful photos and video, the LUMIX DMC-ZS100 makes it fast and simple to share them with friends and family. Combining Wi-Fi and QR code connectivity, it is easy to connect the camera to a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to post to social media almost as soon as they've been recorded.

PANASONIC LUMIX digital cameras are full of innovation for both traditional and modern camera enthusiasts. The LUMIX ZS100 brings together the visual performance of a large 1" sensor and the legendary optical performance of a bright LEICA DC Lens in a highly compact point-and-shoot camera. Traditionalists will love the hands-on manual feel of a lens-mounted control ring and thumbwheel, plus the familiarity of an eye-level electronic viewfinder. The modern enthusiast will love the WiFi mobile device controllability and next-generation flexibility that 4K video and 4K PHOTO modes bring to the creative experience.

4K Video

With 4x the quality of Full HD, 4K video records resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 pixels.

5-axis Correction / Tilt Correction

HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses 5-axis correction to fully suppress blurring caused by unwanted handheld shaking. At the same time, Level Shot function* automatically detects and corrects camera tilt to let you record more confidently.

* Not available with 4K mode.

Advanced Image Processing

The Venus Engine in the LUMIX ZS100 is Panasonic's premier processor. It enables both high-quality image capture and the high-speed signal processing required for 4K video recording. Plus, it integrates superior noise reduction for improved sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and color.

Capture Day and Night

Keep shooting into the night, with a large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel MOS sensor for more color, detail and clarity, even in low light.

High Speed Auto-Focusing

Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates subject distance, then drives the focus mechanism in one fast, continuous movement for faster AF speeds.

Star Light Auto Focusing

Low Light Auto Focus precisely adjusts focus even under moonlight. And Starlight AF lets you capture stars in the night sky with auto focus.

Light Composition

Light Composition processing selects and saves brighter pixels to provide more dramatic imaging in situations like fireworks and nighttime scenery.

4K Live Cropping

With 4K Live Cropping for video, only the recording frame moves while the camera maintains a fixed position for greater stability while panning or zooming.

RAW File Processing

RAW-format images can be easily developed in-camera with adjustments for Color Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, Contrast, Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, Noise Reduction, Intelligent Resolution and Sharpness.

Improved Visibility

Difficult viewing and shot framing under harsh sunlight is eliminated with the built in 0.2-inch 1,166K-dot LVF (Live View Finder).

Capture Now, Focus Later

4K technology enables Post Focus function to refocus images after they are captured. Simply capture the scene, review the image on the camera's LCD and touch any portion of the photo to refocus.

Travels Light

The compact LUMIX ZS100 travels light with a heavy-duty list of features like a, crystal-clear LEICA zoom lens and innovative 4K Video / 4K PHOTO capture.

Powerful 10x LEICA DC VARIO-ELMART Zoom

The ZS100 features a world-renowned LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 10x zoom lens, offering incredible flexibility with ranging from 25mm-250mm (35mm camera equiv.).
