Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 14.1 Megapixel Compact Camera - White


Powerful 20x Optical Zoom

The DMC-ZS20's powerful 20x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm) draws your subjects right up close, and lets you freely capture decisive sports scenes, along with the natural expressions of people and animals, and details that you can't even see with your bare eyes

In addition, this single camera lets you record 20x zoom in video recording. It makes the DMC-ZS20 twice as attractive.

  • Amazed what Panasonic packed in camera
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    I've used this camera for a few months and each time I use it I learn even more about all the options and controls. I still need to read to full-length manual, but the short get-started manual is a good start. I don't think I'll get board anytime soon checking out all the features. One thing that some people may have gotten frustrated with is… in some ways it’s not the typical consumer point and shoot. You need to try out the settings, see what works for various circumstances and what doesn’t.

  • Think about the DMC-ZS19
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    Purchased the DMC-ZS20. Have yet to figure out the GPS on the camera. Turned it off, while in Asia. It took really good photo's, especially through windows riding on a bus. I do find the battery life is very short and will shortly purchase a second battery. Most of all I miss a view finder. In bright sunshine I cannot see the image on the LCD screen. I purchased this camera because of the lens speed and size. I do most of my photography with a DSLR. This camera was bought to put into my purchase and I do not have a good camera on my phone. Did take my photos with it in Asia. Hope Panny comes up with a camera the size of the DMC-ZS 19 or 20 with a lens finder.

  • Great Camera
    Verified Purchase

    Panasonic Lumix zs20 is really difficult to find in white. Overstock.com had it, and while the price wasn't as good as the other colors, I bought it because it is different than most point & shoots. Very pleased with the transaction.

  • Correcting a misunderstanding regarding charging
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    I just want to focus on one issue. Geoff reviewed this camera but unfortunately he didn't realize that an external charging solution is possible (although it might be a little difficult to source) but there are two parts together that can provide the external (and therefore faster charging needed).

    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    I have had a series of Lumix DMC cameras for a few years now, this one offers great zoom and pretty decent detail, colors are a bit weak, and hot spots (light) have a tendency to bleed into the colors giving the images a washed out look. But in overcast days, evenings, early morning, stunning images I would recommend this camera for its all around features, especially for travel, or easy carry situations, perfect pocket camera. Good camera for the $$$$

  • Great camera, beware what is missing!
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    I was so excited to buy this camera as an updated replacement for my DMC-TZ5. I have always LOVED the Lumix cameras from Panasonic, but BEWARE there is NO external battery charger available. Which means you can only charge the battery inside the camera. This might not be a big deal to you, but I loved that I could buy an extra battery and be shooting pics, while charging the other battery. I have never owned a Panasonic camera that didn't have an external charger. Was more than a little disappointed to learn this AFTER I bought the camera.

  • Outstanding clarity, but still a dust problem
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    This is my second Panasonic DMC. The lens is outstanding, with tremendous clarity even at full optical magnification. Anti-shake works very well if you have at least some stability while taking your shots. It is somewhat confusing finding memory card formatting (and other maintenance options), but the menus are usually self-explanatory and you don't have to drill down very far to locate solutions (different menu options when dial is in different spots--manual offers the most available. Major negative is still that the lens sucks in dust and small debris whenever the camera is turned on (lens extends automatically, unless in memory card view mode). Have not taken this one apart to clean the debris (minor and can be removed with alternate software stamping tool), but had many problems with dust on previous version. I hope that super zoom compacts from Panasonic will finally have the dust problem solved.

  • External Battery Charger Available
    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    I bought one when I purchased the camera, and only because the many reviews I read listed this as the primary CON on the ZS15 and 20 models. It's not made by Panny but works just the same. I got an extra battery as well so I can swap them out, presto-change-o, when I'm on the go. No worries.

    Reviewed at http://www.Panasonic.com

    Panasonic Lumix zs20, I have had this camera for a few weeks and have taken hundreds of pictures and tested all the video functions, all work so well and the pictures and video even look great on my Panasonic plasma television, the 3-D capability of the camera is so great to see on the television, so much better than I had expected, to have the ability to put the SD memory card from the camera into the telrvision is such a huge plus and works so well. If I were to loose or break this camera today I would replace it with the same one, it is so user friendly.
