The DMC-ZS25 (TZ35) boasts a 20x optical zoom lens* that fits in a slim, pocket-sized profile. The powerful 20x optical zoom lens draws your subjects right up close, and lets you freely capture decisive sports scenes, along with the natural expressions of people and animals.
* 35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm.
The 24mm ultra wide-angle lens* – rare on a compact camera – gives you a wider range of composition possibilities with approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to that of 35mm camera. The high-quality LEICA DC lens minimizes distortion at the wide end.
* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.
The Intelligent Zoom is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. The 20x optical can virtually extend to 40x equivalent.
The DMC-ZS25(TZ35) boasts 24mm ultra wide angle 20x optical zoom LEICA DC lens. Adoption of ultra-thin lens for its optical system makes the unit’s overall length short to fit in the slim body. Passing Leica's stringent standards, this lens boasts exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity with minimum distortion and flare.
The Panasonic's black box technology Nano Surface Coating boasts extremely low reflectance ratio and it is applied to DMC-ZS25(TZ35) for exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity by minimizing flaring and ghosts.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. The O.I.S. also works for powerful zoom shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. Plus, the Active Mode is effective for video recording.

The DMC-ZS25(TZ35) features the 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor that boasts high-speed signal output and high-sensitivity image recording for making many advanced features possible. It also allows shooting images up to ISO3200 in full resolution.
The DMC-ZS25(TZ35)'s Venus Engine processes large amount of full HD data at high-speed. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time.
The excellent S/N ratio of the MOS sensor and the Intelligent Noise Reduction system in the Venus Engine make both photos and videos shot at any sensitivity from low to high and boast outstanding clearness.
Resolution is prioritized at edge area.
Noise reduction is prioritized in soft gradation area.
The Multi-process Noise Reduction applies optimum noise reduction according to the brightness of the part of the image. Images recorded in low-lit situations are now dramatically clear.
High frequency noise that occurs in the dark part is suppressed.
Low frequency noise in the light part is suppressed.
You can snap off consecutive shots at approx. 5 fps or 2 fps with AF Tracking.
10 fps burst shooting is possible in High-Speed Burst Mode*. You can take a series of shots, then choose the ones you like the best and delete the rest.
* Recorded in 3M (4:3), 2.5M (3:2), 2M (16:9) or 2.5M (1:1). The number of burst recording pictures may increase when you use a card with fast writing speed or card is formatted. The focus, zoom, exposure, white balance, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity are all fixed to the settings for the first picture
With the industry’s first Creative Panorama, 12 filter effects make panorama images more impressive, and expand your expressive abilities.
The Creative Control (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch (in the playback mode) give you the expressive power to turn ordinary situations into highly special scenes.
