Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 / Lumix DMC-TZ7 announcement clippings

The DMC-ZS3 (DMC-TZ7 in Europe) is a powerhouse performer with enormous versatility. It features a new LEICA DC VARIOELMAR lens with 10.1-megapixel resolution. Compared with previous models, it extends the power of the optical zoom from 10x to 12x and expands the wide-angle lens from 28mm to an ultra-wide 25mm while reducing both size and weight of the body, giving it the range for virtually all shooting situations.
The camera is the world's first digital camera that records motion image in AVCHD Lite. The AVCHD Lite realizes long time recording of high-definition motion image. The well-considered operational command ayout including an independent movie recording button makes the camera a true hybrid -- a single model that performs admirably as both camera and camcorder while achieving smooth, easy operation in both modes.
