Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS45 Preview

Panasonic has announced the Lumix DMC-ZS45. While it's not the ZS-series flagship, the ZS45 offers up a powerful 16MP High Sensitivity MOS image sensor and a long-reaching 20x optical zoom lens with POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) for vibration-free shots. This camera also features an improved 3.0-inch monitor with added resolution and the ability to tilt, which will be a big help when shooting Full 1080p HD videos and/or selfies.

Lastly, the ZS45 boasts NFC and Wi-Fi technologies, which allow you to connect it to a smartphone or tablet, effectively turning those devices into a remote control (access settings, take a picture, start recording, etc.) or a remote viewfinder (see what your camera is shooting when it's not even in your hand).
