The technical details behind this camera
The LUMIX DC-TZ220, the latest flagship in its popular ‘Travel Zoom’ series. The ultimate in travel compacts, this premium camera delivers impressive performance and versatility with 15x zoom LEICA lens, 1-inch MOS sensor, and 2.3 million-dot Live View Finder with 0.53x magnification. Other convenient and creative capabilities offered by the sleek TZ220 include Panasonic’s latest suite of 4K features; Bluetooth for a quick, low energy connection to smartphones; customisable aperture and focus bracketing which combines a series of shots such as landscapes or macros for the best image; and L-Monochrome Mode to create film-like black and white shots. High-resolution viewfinder
A high-resolution viewfinder is key to ensuring once-in-a-lifetime shots are precisely framed and in sharp focus. Panasonic has equipped the TZ220 with a high quality 0.21-inch 2,330K-dot equiv. Live View Finder (LVF), with a high magnification ratio of approximately 1.45x / 0.53x (35mm camera equivalent). Image output between the LVF and the 1,240K-dot rear monitor is automatic, using an eye sensor on the LVF. The LVF and the 3-inch monitor provide approximately 100% field of view. 4K video recording
The camera also incorporates the latest updates to Panasonic’s trademark suite of powerful 4K Video and 4K Photo capabilities to capture the decisive moment with impressive clarity and total precision. It captures smooth 4K Video in 3840 x 2160 at 25p. For still shooting, 4K Photo with 4K Pre-burst mode shoots 30 frames per second before and after the shutter is released to capture the defining shot. Batch Save stores an entire burst sequence of up to 150 frames at just one press of a button. On this new model, Panasonic has made it easier to select the best shot from hundreds on a reel with Auto Marking, which highlights images that contain movement or faces.

Our expert’s opinion
- Versatile camera
- 4K video recording
- Size and weight
Panasonic bills this as the ‘Ultimate Travel Companion’, and as far as cameras go it’s hard to argue. It represents good value to for money, produces high-quality images and films in 4K, packs a zoom lens that is the equivalent of 24-360mm, and does this while weighing 340 grams and being palm sized. The five-axis hybrid optical image stabilisation and ultra-high-speed focusing, put you in the best position to capture the perfect shot. It contains a long list of features, but basically is just a great compact camera to take with you on the road to capture beautiful images without too much thought. Why Camera House?
