The Lumix DMC-ZS5 is a 12.1 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera from Panasonic, set to be released in early 2010. While similar to the Lumix DMC-ZS7, this camera has a smaller screen at 2.7”, lacks a built-in GPS, AVCHD Lite and a mini-HDMI port. The DMC-ZS5 features the “Venus Engine VI,” which is a step down from the DMC-ZS7’s Venus Engine HD II. With a 12x optical zoom and an ultra-wide-angle lens, average users should find enough flexibility with this Lumix to perfect their shots. More experienced photographers will likely enjoy the manual control options and RAW support. Casual photographers will likely enjoy the ‘Happy Mode” option, which automatically applies a vivid color filter to photos and video. Up to 720p resolution movies can be recorded in M-JPEG format. The DMC-ZS5 is compatible with both SD and SDXC memory cards. Color options include silver and black.
