Panasonic has won an EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) Award for its Lumix DMC-TZ15 digital still camera. The award recognises this model as the best compact camera for 2008-09.
In awarding Panasonic this honour, EISA released the following statement:
“The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ15 has an extensive zoom range extending from very wide to telephoto angles of view. The 10x Leica DC 28-280mm (equivalent) lens provides focal lengths to suit almost every style and subject, in a single very useful unit. The camera’s compact size, slim profile and high 9-million-pixel image quality make it an ideal travel camera, as well as one you will always want to carry with you every day.”
Talking about the camera, and the award it has received, is Panasonic category marketing manager, mobile AV, Alistair Robins.
“The TZ ‘Traveller’s zoom’ range has been highly awarded, with the TZ-15’s predecessor, the TZ3, also receiving an EISA award last year. The TZ15 incorporates Panasonic’s ‘Intelligent Auto’ (iA) mode which activates simultaneous automatic features for mistake-free photography and is fully equipped for shooting on that overseas trip or weekend away,” said Robins.
The Lumix DMC-TZ15 is available now for RRP $659.
