Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 Digital Camera, HD 1080p, 18.1MP, 20x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS & GLONASS, 3” Touch Screen

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Fast, powerful and very connected, the Panasonic TZ40 brings Wi-Fi and NFC (near field communication) to GPS and GLONASS tracking functions. Its imaging abilities are impressive too, with an 18.1-megapixel MOS sensor allowing for fine detail and quality enlargements.

Exceptional optical zoom gets you closer to the action and is great for nature photography. Best of all, it’s still compact enough to slip into a pocket or bag. When just one shot won’t do, there’s still Full HD video to capture every moment.

Key benefits:


  • The TZ40 uses a 24mm ultra wide-angle 20x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens. Thanks to Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent 40x Zoom is available with minimum deterioration of picture quality even combining the digital zoom. Nano Surface Coating provides stunning clarity with minimum flare and ghosting.


  • An 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor gives you high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. Noise Reduction in the Venus Engine and Edge Smoothing enable high sensitivity image capture with reduced noise and smooth edges even at high ISO settings. High speed consecutive shooting at 10 fps in full resolution means there are no more missed opportunities either.


  • Integrated Wi-Fi and NFC technology make getting connected more intuitive. NFC lets you connect the camera with a smartphone/tablet by just placing them nearby. With the "Panasonic Image App", you can enjoy remote shooting, easy uploading, and the automatic transfer of data to other devices. Transferring data to a computer is available too using your router.


  • Record in Full HD 1080p with stunning smoothness in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 formats. The POWER OIS includes HYBRID OIS+ for video recording with 5-axis correction that detects and compensates for 5 types of movement.


  • Level Shot detects the horizontal line and keep it, even if the camera is tilted.


  • The GPS works with GLONASS to enhance its accuracy. Photos and videos can be tagged with location names and are automatically sorted for quick reach.


  • With the 3.0-inch large Multi-Touch Screen, maps are scalable by pinching in and out on the touch screen.


  • Includes battery, charger, USB cable, strap and software CD.
