P anasonic is proud to introduce the DMC SZ8, a new digital compact camera with a 12x optical zoom and WiFi connectivity. The versatile 24mm ultra wide angle lens with a powerful 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 24mm to 288mm on a 35mm camera) features the Intelligent Zoom function, making it possible to extend the zoom up to 24x by combining digital zoom with less deterioration of image quality. The Optical Image Stabilizer of the Panasonic Lumix SZ8 can effectively suppress hand movement which tends to occur when shooting with a long zoom.
