Those who love taking panoramic shots or photos of beautiful sceneries are sure to take advantage of its powerful 20x long zoom and Panoramic Mode.

Things We Like

The amazing 20x optical zoom of the Panasonic LUMIX ZS45 is just the tip of the iceberg. Sure, the fact that it lets you take pictures with sharpness and clarity, even when taken from a distance, is already a good enough reason to invest in this camera. But wait until you try its other features. Now you no longer have to settle for plain pictures, or perform complicated post-processing procedures just to make the photos you have taken come out more creatively. Thanks to this camera’s Creative Control function, you can make use of the various unique filter effects and add more character to your photos. Choose from modes such as Expressive, Old Days, Sepia, Impressive Art, Toy Effect, and One Point Color, among others.

And who doesn’t want to take self-portraits, or selfies, from time to time? The 460K-dot LCD monitor of the ZS45 can be tilted up to 180 degrees, and since the screen is large – at 3.0 inches diagonally – you and a group of friends can take self-portraits together. Sharing and transferring images can be quite a pain, but with the Panasonic LUMIX ZS45, it becomes painless and easy. As long as you have the Panasonic Image App on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily upload your images and share them on SNS. The Instant Transfer feature is also very handy when it comes to wirelessly and instantly transferring images that you’ve taken using the camera.
