The Lumix DMC-LZ30 Digital Camera from Panasonic offers the ease and features of a point-and-shoot camera but with DSLR-like handling and control and a very powerful 35x optical zoom lens. Its 16.1MP CCD sensor and Venus Engine image processor provide sharp images, accurate colors and fast performance and its 35x optical zoom lens stretches from ultra wide-angle to super-telephoto length to capture almost any shot you can imagine. This lens offers the 35mm equivalent focal length of a 25-875mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/3.0 at the wide-angle end. This aperture is wide enough to capture low light action and the camera's Optical Image Stabilization will compensate for camera shake to provide clear photos and videos when shooting at the long lengths that this lens offers. If you need to reach a bit further, a 78.8x Extra Optical Zoom feature is available at reduced resolution.
