Panasonic has done it again – this time with the new Lumix DMC-ZR1. Panasonic answers the cry of consumers looking for a portable camera with a powerful zoom capability. The ZR1 will be available in September 2009 in a choice of colors such a blue, silver, black and red with a suggested retail price of $279.95.
This camera is one that families will be glad they purchased when they are on the go from sun up to sun down. It's convenient to use, easily portable, packed full of features, and retains a charge for up to 330 pictures with its powerful new battery. The ZR1 also boasts the world's first aspherical lens and a 25 mm ultra wide angle while still providing an 8x optical zoom to catch all the activities of an active family. Families will also be bragging to their friends when they can use the convenient POWER Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) to help capture those blur- free images they once only dreamed of. They will also be impressed with the ZR1's fast startup time of 1.1 seconds to capture images in record time as well as the video capability that will save memories of a lifetime.
Of course, Panasonic didn't stop there. They jam packed the ZR1 with a lot of additional features that anyone can appreciate while trying to capture the events of their lives. Starting with some Additional Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode features such as the hand-shake component that reduces any shaking that occurs while pressing the shutter button or the Face Recognition feature that allows the camera to register up to six different faces to show the names once recognized, the camera has endless opportunities. Anyone traveling will appreciate the travel feature that can organize information related to a trip including destination, date and time and also provides an easy playback feature devoted to the dates of travel. This unit also includes the PHOTOFunSTUDIO 4.0 software that allows users to view, edit, and archive captured photos and videos. The software also allows users to sort and store photos specified by a face recognized in the photo in conjunction with the face recognition program.
Families who are looking for a unit that is affordable, easy to use, and extremely versatile digital camera will certainly fall in love with Panasonic's new ZR1 camera. The price point will wow users who are looking for a great camera chalked full of entry level camera features while combining more complex features that will keep users busy for some time to come.
