Manufacturer’s Description

Powerful 20x Optical Zoom

The DMC-ZS20's powerful 20x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm) draws your subjects right up close, and lets you freely capture decisive sports scenes, along with the natural expressions of people and animals, and details that you can't even see with your bare eyes

In addition, this single camera lets you record 20x zoom in video recording. It makes the DMC-ZS20 twice as attractive.
