Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS7 digital camera does GPS


Panasonic just introduced the new LUMIX DMC-ZS7 which has a 25mm ultra-wide-angle Leica lens and a powerful 12x optical zoom which can even be used while recording movies. It can capture 12.1MP images but more importantly it has a built-in GPS receiver that can embed exact location of stills and movies which they claim is great when sharing your media online - making things a lot easier for your favorite stalker.

Like we said Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 utilizes GPS which stores latitude and longitude in the EXIF data. Not only that but thanks to location information stored internally this camera knows about the name of the city, country and state, and information for more than 500,000 popular landmarks, while covering 73 countries. Another plus of having a GPS receiver on board is that the LUMIX ZS7 can automatically adjust its internal clock to the local time.

We’re not really digital camera people here at Navigadget but some of the features of DMC-ZS7 include Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus), a short startup time of approximately 1.1 seconds, manual control features, face recognition, intelligent resolution and intelligent zoom, AF Tracking, and finally Intelligent ISO Control and Intelligent Exposure.

It doesn’t end there - LUMIX ZS7 can record AVCHD Lite HD video, and also features Dolby Digital Stereo Creator to record high quality audio. It has a 3.0″, high resolution wide-viewing angle screen.

Panasonic LUMIX ZS7 will be available in silver, black, red and blue models. How much will it cost? We don’t but it better be sub $400.
