Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 / Lumix DMC-TZ15 announcement clippings

The 9.1 effective megapixel DMC-TZ5 incorporates a newly developed easy-to-see 3-inch 460,000-dot super high resolution LCD for comfortable viewing while both monitoring shots in detail and playing back the results even in thumbnails as tiny as 30-split. The Intelligent LCD function detects the light condition and automatically boosts the LCD backlighting by max. 40% when shooting outdoors in bright sunshine, and adjusts the frame rate when shooting in low-lit situations in addition to using the pixel mixed readout method to secure clarity in such situations. Detecting the lighting condition precisely and automatically controlling the brightness with a total of 11 fine steps, this function gives the display the most appropriate clarity in any situation without using extra energy.
