Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 Digital Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 14 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 100-1600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-1600. With 14 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 to compensate for camera shake.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 1m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 features a 23-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame.
Although this camera offers full manual controls, it does not have any control-dials to change exposure parameters directly. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 and no provision to add one.
