Introduction

The Panasonic DMC-ZS20 (also known as the TZ30 outside North America) is the latest travel-zoom compact camera from the company that practically invented the category. Panasonic claims it is the slimmest camera with a 20x optical zoom, while also sporting a new 14.1-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, 1080/60p video capability, built-in GPS, and 3-inch touchscreen LCD.

The ZS20 replaces last year's ZS10 and will be available in March 2012 for $349.99 in black, silver, brown, red, and white. Panasonic also informs us that they offer a ZS19 model, which doesn't include GPS but is otherwise identical to the ZS20, for $299.99.
