Selfridges Says

Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-LZ40 digital camera provides a new shooting style with a powerful 42x optical zoom lens and 20-megapixel high-resolution sensor. It also features Creative mode with 15 filters and P / M modes for more creative shooting.


The Lumix LZ40 – Stylish Bridge Camera with Large 42x Super Zoom
Twin a powerful 42X optical zoom lens with a 20-megapixel high-resolution sensor and we have the ‘Long Zoom’ LZ40 from Panasonic. The bridge model also features Program and Manual modes for added flexibility when it comes to attempting more creative shooting. Additionally on board is a Creative mode with 15 selectable digital effects filters to truly help your imagination run riot.

Powerful 42X Optical Zoom, Starting at an Ultra Wide 22mm
Now wildlife and sports photographers can pull the faraway that much closer with one lens that can truly do it all. The lure here is a 35mm equivalent focal range that runs from an ultra wide angle 22mm right up to 924mm at the telephoto end. There is the further opportunity to enhance the camera’s performance by extending zoom power to 84x by combining it with the digital zoom; the result being less deterioration in image quality. The 22mm equivalent starting point is naturally perfect for shooting landscapes and group portraiture – indoors or out.

20 Megapixel High Resolution CCD Sensor
The LZ40 boasts a CCD with an upgraded 20-megapixel resolution, whilst its image-processing engine supports the shooting of high quality photos and stunning video.

Unique Filter Effects for Photos and Videos
As usual with a Panasonic camera, the LZ40 is fully loaded with a variety of Creative Control digital filter effects that can be automatically applied to images to add drama and fun. For example Creative Panorama allows uses to create dynamic vertical or horizontal panoramic photos just by panning with the camera. The following options can be applied to both stills and videos: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect and One Point Colour.

Easy Control of Manual Photographic Settings
The LZ40 comes equipped with user selectable Program and Manual shooting modes. More experienced photographers who want to do something more creative with the camera than merely point and shoot can give full vent to their creative urges.

HDR (High Dynamic Range)
With High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode selected, several photos are shot in quick succession at different exposure levels. From these varied shots a single image is composed. In this way both over exposure and under exposure of the image is avoided and stunning results are achievable – even in difficult lighting conditions.

720P HD Video Recording
Use the full extent of the camera’s zoom to draw faraway subjects closer and capture great looking video as well as stills. The LZ40 can record dynamic HD video in 1280x720 pixels resolution, and in Motion JPEG format too. A dedicated video recording button is provided on the top of the camera, thereby making it convenient for users to switch from shooting photos to shooting movies.

Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery Delivers Efficient Performance
A single charge of the lithium ion rechargeable battery supplied with the LZ40 will deliver approximately 320 pictures, based on the industry standard CIPA testing. The battery can also be charged via USB port as well as via the mains, allowing for maximum convenience.

High Powered Built-in Flash
The LZ40 comes with the convenience of a body integral pop up artificial flash to provide extra illumination in more challenging shooting conditions. The flash itself has a Guide Number of 8.5. Even relatively distant subjects can be captured in a properly illuminated – and therefore properly exposed – manner.
