Get a First Look from Imaging Expert Mason Resnick
Adorama Learning Center's digital imaging expert Mason Resnick takes a first look at both the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 and Lumix DMC-ZS60 compact digital cameras in his featured article on the ALC site. Of the Lumix DMC-ZS100, he says, "The Lumix DMC-ZS100 is Panasonic's new flagship compact digital pocket camera, houses a big 1-inch MOS sensor, and is the first Panasonic model to feature 'Post-Focus,' which lets you adjust focus after you've taken the picture. The camera captures multiple images with optimal focus for 49 individual areas within each frame. You can then manually select which area you want to focus on. You can even generate multiple versions of the same image with different areas in focus."

Of the Lumix DMC-ZS60, Mason says, "Panasonic also introduced the Lumix DMC-ZS60, an 11-ounce compact camera optimized for travel photography. Featuring a 30x zoom lens and 4k still/video capture, the camera packs an 18MP MOS sensor and a 24-720mm (35mm equivalent) f/3.3-6.4optical zoom range. In addition to capturing 4K video, the ZS60 also lets you extract an 8-MP still from 4K video, and offers the same Post-Focus feature found on the ZS100. Shutter speeds are as fast as 1/16,000 sec."
