An introduction to the 2013 LUMIX Camera Range

Panasonic has released its new LUMIX cameras with functions that make photography more fun and easy to share. The highlights of this exciting new range include easy shooting and sharing via Wi-Fi®, easy NFC (Near Field Communication) connection, new Creative Panorama, and Red Colour reproduction for improved underwater shooting.

The LIMIX compact range has a camera that is perfect for every type of budding photographer. For the traveler, the DMC-TZ40 is the ideal companion with 20x optical zoom in a compact body plus GPS and Wi-Fi. The DMC-FT25 is the everyday tough camera for those who never know what today will bring. For fashionable users, the super slim DMC-XS1 will never look out of place and the DMC-SZ9 is the perfect match for those wanting a connected lifestyle with Wi-Fi functionality paired with 10x optical zoom.

LUMIX DMC-TZ40: Super Zoom

The world’s slimmest in its class*1; this highly pocketable 20x zoom camera has everything the modern globetrotter needs in this latest model in the popular TZ Series of Travel Zoom cameras.

Near Field Communication (NFC) technology connects a smartphone device at a touch, and still and movie shooting can be controlled from the smartphone screen.
The ‘Panasonic Image App’ for iOS and Android™ smartphones can monitor what the camera lens is seeing live from their smartphone at 30 frames per second and set zoom, focus, shutter release, shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation, as well as shoot video remotely.


This new rugged LUMIX camera is ideal for everyday family use – whether you are capturing the school swimming carnival or a beach holiday with the kids.

The versatile new LUMIX DMC-FT25 has an airtight body protected against water immersion, dust and sand and offers higher water resistance than its predecessors. Its wide range of shooting functions includes Underwater Mode with Red Colour Reproduction; a feature that compensates for the red colour easily lost in underwater shooting to help capture the natural colour of subjects.

LUMIX DMC-XS1: Compact

This new range of compact LUMIX cameras has the world’s slimmest body profile in its class*2 and features an eye-catching two-tone design.

The slim and stylish design of the LUMIX DMC-XS1 houses a host of features that provide amazing results.  Creative Panorama makes it possible to create a dramatic horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots, overlaying the images and adding from a wide range of filters.

LUMIX DMC-SZ9: Stylish

This latest addition to the slim and stylish SZ Series of compact cameras makes capturing and sharing quality images a breeze with 10x optical zoom, 1920 x 1080 Full HD video recording and Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows convenient shooting and sharing of photos using the Panasonic Image App and your smartphone.

The DMC-SZ9 captures high-quality images with ease thanks to a 25mm ultra wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens and powerful 10x optical zoom while MEGA OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) suppresses any handshake which can occur when shooting with high zoom.
