Product Info

LUMIX 30x Travel Zoom Camera with Eye Viewfinder


Get closer with the 30x Zoom LEICA Lens


Bring every subject in closer and more clearly with the Leica 24mm DC Vario-Elmar lens and durable 30x optical zoom.

See Clearer With The Live View Finder


Wherever your travels take you, the precision Live View Finder helps get the shot. Perfect for image framing when light conditions make using the LED screen difficult, the eye sensor automatically detects viewing preference and switches to the LVF. Its high 1.166k-dot resolution, with approximately 100% color reproduction, delivers stable framing and superb visibility, in any light condition.

Stunning in Low Light — High Sensitivity MOS Sensor


Even in low-light environments, you can capture more detail and less image noise with the new, larger pixel-size High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor. And enjoy stunning photos and videos.


Be In Control With The Manual Mode Control Ring


The lens-mounted Control Ring provides easier manual control for exposure, zoom and focus, leaving you free to concentrate on shutter operation. Intuitive design, precise focusing and smooth, silent operation gives you total control of every photo and video you create.

Keep it Steady with HYBRID O.I.S.


HYBRID O.I.S.+ minimizes blur and ensures level images. The 5-axis Optical Image Stabilizer automatically detects and compensates for blurring, based on the camera's five types of movement. When shooting, Level Shot senses and corrects the horizontal line of recording, even when the camera is tilted. The result is clear, perfectly leveled photos and video.

Breathtaking Movies in Full HD


Record Full HD videos in AVCHD or MP4 format. And enjoy smooth, colorful, high- resolution playback on your PC or widescreen HDTV. High Speed Video records with 100fps in HD resolution and 200fps in VGA. With high-speed video you can and record any fast-moving action, and enjoy later in crystal-clear slow motion.

RAW Format Recording


Shoot in RAW format to capture greater detail, just like the Pros do. Your image data retains the original color and light information captured by camera's sensor, with only minimal processing. And you can directly edit high-quality images for amazing results.

The Quintessential Travel Camera


In short, the new LUMIX ZS50 is the ultimate camera for any destination, with every feature built for the traveller in you. From architectural patterns to subtle color gradations in sunsets, the ZS50 makes it easy to capture every color and detail in any light, anywhere. And its slim, compact size makes it ideal for slipping into your pocket or a bag for quick, easy access.
