Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS10 & ZS8 Digital Cameras: Not Your Ordinary Compact Superzooms

Standing out amongst the rest of the compact superzoom cameras is no easy task, but Panasonic has accomplished this by releasing the DMC-ZS10 and the DMCZS8. These digital cameras are packed with the robust features you wouldn’t expect a regular point and shoot camera to have. 

The ZS10 zoom ranges to a powerful 16x paired with a 24mm-equivalent wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with nano coating to reduce ghosting and flare. The touch-screen, 3.0 inch, 460K-dot LCD with a 14 MP MOS sensor and a Venus Engine FHD processor allows high-speed burst shooting to create beautiful, high resolution photos and full HD video recording. 

The high-speed shooting allows you to produce 3D photos by it firing off 20 shots and then using the best two for overlaying to create a 3D MPO file. This 3D photo can be played back on 3D capable TVS, computers, and photo frames.
Another exclusive feature includes the Image Uploader function which allows images and videos to be easily shared via Facebook and Youtube by allowing you to tag photos or videos on the camera itself. 

If you want a more tone downed version of the ZS10, then the ZS8 may be right for you instead. 

The DMC-ZS8 comes with a regular 14-megapixel CCD, 3-inch 230K-dot resolution LCD with 720p movie capture capability. However, you won’t find features like touch-screen, Image Uploader and the high-speed shooting functions that come with the ZS10. But don’t worry, the ZS8 comes with the same incredible lens as the ZS10. 

Both models are expected to be available by March 2011.
