While it’s packed full of powerful features, the sleek and slim design of the TZ220 make it incredibly portable – and a perfect choice for travellers and everyday shooters alike. It can fit in your pocket, in a small bag and in your hand for effortless snaps on the go. It’s also durable, with a chassis using aluminium plates, while the front and rear grips make it easy to hold and shoot in a way that’s both natural and comfortable.
The Lumix TZ220’s long-reaching 15x Leica DC Vario-Elmar zoom lens opens up the possibilities. With a 24-360mm equivalent focal length range along with a maximum aperture range of f/3.3-6.4, you zoom in on wildlife from afar or snap a close-up macro of the food on your plate (the minimum focusing distance can be as close as three centimetres). Three ED elements, five aspherical elements and one aspherical ED lens work to minimize spherical aberrations and distortions while the in-built image stabilisation system offsets any unintended hand-shake to deliver crystal-clear images throughout the zoom range.
The Panasonic Lumix TZ220 packs a punch when it comes to notable features. It flaunts a large one-inch 20.1MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor, a Venus Engine image processor (the same as Lumix G Series mirrorless cameras) and a five-axis hybrid image stabilisation system. This combination means sharp images with rich colours and reduced noise, high ISO performance, and smooth-flowing 4K and high-definition video recording. So whether it’s dark or light and however fast your subject is moving, the TZ220 puts beautiful photos and video within reach.
Enjoy the flexibility to shoot in a way that suits you and adapt to changing conditions with two viewing options. The Panasonic Lumix TZ220 features a live viewfinder for easy, eye-level monitoring with 2330k-dot resolution and complete image frame coverage. Alternatively, the 1240k-dot touchscreen LCD on the back of the camera allows live view shooting, as well image review and menu navigation; you can set focus on your subject and release the shutter by simply touching the screen. Enjoy the freedom and flexibility to shoot in a way that works for you.
Produce outstanding quality video with impressive 4K video at both 30p and 24p frame rates in the MP4 format at 100 Mb/s. Now you can enjoy this high-end video feature without having to lug around heaps of fancy equipment. The TZ220 can also capture Full HD 1080p and HD 720p, plus high-speed Full HD recording with 120fps slow-motion playback. These are just some of the many advanced video features of this pocket-friendly camera. In the photo stakes, the 4K capabilities enable continuous shooting of 8MP images at 10 frames per second with single-shot AF, 6fps with continuous AF, or 30 fps in the 4K Photo burst mode.
Whether you’re off travelling around the world capturing once-in-a-lifetime shots or you’re at home taking happy snaps and cute pictures of the dog, the Panasonic Lumix TZ220 makes it easy to share your photos instantaneously. Share images to your smartphone using the Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. You can also use your smartphone as a remote control – perfect for when you want a group shot that everybody can be part of.
