The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ9 is a slim digital compact camera featuring a sixteen-megapixel sensor, 10x optical zoom, 10fps burst shooting and Wi-Fi connectivity. Fitted with a 25-250mm equivalent lens, the SZ9 boasts approx. 0.1-second “Light Speed AF,” integrated GPS and Full HD video recording capabilities. Equipped with 14 creative effects such as soft focus, toy effect and retro, the SZ9 also sports a three-inch LCD screen, while the GPS functionality allows you to record your location and view the map with the associated photos directly on your camera. Also announced today is the Panasonic SZ3, a similar camera that comes with a slightly smaller rear display and 720p video but retains the 16.1-megapixel sensor (CCD rather than CMOS) and 10x optical zoom of the SZ9.
