Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Panasonic’s TZ55 is a super zoom camera with the profile of a pocketsize digital compact. Featuring a flip-out screen and easy Full HD shooting it’s always ready to give you a fresh angle on the action. Along with built-in Wi-Fi, backing up and sharing your best shots is simple.

20x optical zoom
A powerful 20x optical zoom in a slimline body gets you closer to your subjects. Easily capture sports scenes, wildlife shots and natural facial expressions at high zooms or get more detail in frame by shooting at 24mm wide-angle.

16MP MOS sensor
The high sensitivity sensor works with advanced image stabilisation for vivid, lifelike results that stay sharp, even at maximum zoom. With burst mode, you can capture high speed sequences at up to 10 frames per second.

Wi-Fi
This camera stands out with remote shooting, wireless image transfer and compatibility with social media sites like Facebook, flickr and Picassa. If you connect the TZ55 to a smartphone or tablet you can even use their inbuilt GPS to geotag your images.

Intelligent auto mode
This mode takes all of the guesswork out of getting professional quality photos. Just press, aim and shoot. The detection and correction functions do the rest.

Artistic filters
Creative control puts a suite of unique filter effects at your fingertips. Step back in time with Old Days, Retro and Sepia or get playful with Toy Effect and more.
