The Lumix DMC-ZS7 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-ZS5, this camera has a larger screen at 3 inches, includes a built-in GPS, AVCHD Lite support and a mini-HDMI port. The DMC-ZS7 features the “Venus Engine HD II,” which is a step up from the DMC-ZS5’s Venus Engine VI. 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 AVCHD Lite format. The DMC-ZS7 is compatible with both SD and SDXC memory cards.
