High-spec camera tech packed into a light compact body makes Panasonic's super-zoom DC-TZ90 the ideal travel camera, for a professional quality record of all your holidays and adventures. Boasting 4K Video, 20.3MP and amazingly far-reaching 30x optical zoom, this small package yields superb results. The brand's crystal-clear LEICA lens is backed by a large 1/2.3" MOS sensor for pin-sharp clarity, with built-in Wi-Fi for easy wireless sharing. A fully flippable rear touch screen means it's great for super-quality selfies. And with other features like post-focus, HYBRID optical image stabiliser and intuitive Live View Finder, this camera gives you the power of premium photography ...in your pocket.
Exceptional Compact Power
Far larger than in most compact cameras, the TZ90’s 1/2.3” MOS sensor delivers delightful colour and clarity. It works just as well in low light settings, capturing sharp imagery with minimum visual noise. Filled with 20.3 megapixels, your snaps will be rich and beautiful, from dusk till dawn. All of this power is channelled with rapid speed through the brand’s state-of-the-art Venus image processor, supplying luscious shots in an instant.
Extreme Flexibility with High-Powered LEICA Zoom Lens
The TZ90 features a stunningly powerful zoom for such a small camera. With huge 30x optical zoom, 60x intelligent zoom and 4x digital zoom, you’ll get a crisp shot of your subject wherever you are, zeroing in on far horizons with high detail. The lens’ broad f3.3 – 6.4 aperture range gives you space to experiment with background/subject separation too, letting you tailor your shot to landscapes or portraits. It also features HYBRID Optical Image Stabiliser – using 5-axis correction to deliver crisp, blur-free video. Depth from Defocus technology opens up a world of super-quick autofocus so you can capture fast-moving subjects with reliable accuracy. All this powerful tech combines to let you go as far as your creativity will take you.
Dazzlingly Detailed 4K Video
4K has four times the pixel density of Full HD and this camera lets you capture your memories in this ultra-crisp resolution. Shoot 4K video at 30fps to capture the action in smooth hyper-detail. The 4K Photo function lets you select the perfect split-second moment from your Ultra HD footage to save as an 8MP equivalent still.
Before or after you’ve taken your shot, this camera keeps you in the driver’s seat. The innovative Post-Focus mode lets you decide what’s in focus after you’ve taken the photo. This way, you can optimise any part of a picture when you’re reviewing a day’s haul. The 0.2” Live View Finder is ideal for giving you a perfect view of the frame even in the brightest sunlight. It automatically turns on when you hold it up to your eyes, and with manual control rings and vivid 3” LCD Touch Screen you have complete control as you line up your shots.
With built-in Wi-Fi, this camera can connect to your smart phone or tablet wirelessly, letting you share your shots in an instant. You can even download the Panasonic Image App (available on iOS & Android) to control the TZ90 remotely.
Super Selfie-friendly Screen
The rear LCD touch screen gives you direct fingertip control. And it flips up fully to 180° for super-classy selfies. Whether for a group photo abroad, or yourself looking your best, the TZ90 takes the quality of the self-portrait to the next level.
Add Flair with Filters
Give your work the artistic touch with this camera’s wealth of effects. Use the Creative Control mode to add such filters as Old Days, Retro or Dynamic Monochrome, or adjust the look with such scene setting as Appetizing Food, Silky Skin or Glistening Water. This is only a snippet of the hours of fun you can have experimenting.

- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
