The Panasonic DMC-ZS20 (also known as the TZ30 outside North America) is the latest travel-zoom compact camera from the company that practically invented the category. Panasonic claims it is the slimmest camera with a 20x optical zoom, while also sporting a new 14.1-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, 1080/60p video capability, built-in GPS, and 3-inch touchscreen LCD. The ZS20 replaces last year’s ZS10 (a ZS15 model has also been announced with a different lens and sensor) and will be available in March 2012 for $349.99 in black, silver, brown, red, and white.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 ($349) is a compact travel zoom camera with a pretty elaborate GPS setup. Not only does the ZS20 log your location, it also has a database of a million landmarks and maps of ninety countries. The ZS20 also packs a new 20X zoom lens, 14.1 Megapixel MOS sensor (which Panasonic says has less noise than the one on the ZS10), super-fast autofocus, 10 frame/second continuous shooting, a great auto mode, in-camera panorama stitching, and Full HD 1080/60p video recording.
