The DMC-FZ20 is a 5 megapixel consumer digital camera with a 12x optical zoom. Plus, its F2.8 brightness across the entire 12x zoom range provides extraordinary image-rendering performance and puts you in control over a wide variety of shooting techniques. The Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens combines a comfortably small size with superb image rendering and the Venus Engine LSI ensures that you will capture rich, expressive images. Furthermore, the MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer offsets unintentional hand movement to give you clear, sharp images even when taking handheld telephoto shots or shooting at night. The DMC-FZ20 is versatile while still easy to use. It stores images on Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMediaCards (MMC) which combine high storage capacity, rapid data transfer, and flexibility - all in a card about the size of a postage stamp. A Motion Image Recording mode with Audio records moving images with audio at a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels with no limit on segment length save for the available card capacity.
