Digital Camera Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20

by K.T. Bradford on April 14, 2013

Editor's Choice: Entry Level

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20Balancing light weight and a small body with excellent optics is one of Panasonic's strong points, and this Lumix model is the perfect example. The ZS20 14.1MP camera sports a 20x zoom Leica lens that will get you good, stable close up shots from far away. It delivers excellent photos, bright colors, and little noise even in low light. The intelligent Auto settings make it easy to snap pictures without fuss, but if you want more control the ZS20 has plenty of manual settings on offer. You can capture 1080p 60fps videos and record in high quality AVCHD for watching on the big screen or MP4 for web sharing. Battery life isn't the best, thanks to a touchscreen LCD on the back and built-in GPS for geotagging, but rest of the camera's standout features more than make up for it.
