Conns Cameras is a family-run business established by Phil Conn in 1968. Bob and Mike Conn together with an excellent team of knowledgeable and helpful staff can guide you through the maze of new technology.
We sell only certified European stock, not grey imports. As well as dealing directly with each brand we stock, or their European distributor, we are a certified professional / premier dealer for Canon, Fuji, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. We also deal directly with the best authorised repair centres for each brand.
Plus we offer unrivalled extra back-up and support services over and above the standard manufacturer's warranty you will receive from other retailers.
Orders are generally dealt with as soon as they are received.
Parcels are picked up from us in the early afternoon, and orders before 2pm will normally be shipped for delivery within Ireland the next working day (delivery to Britain is normally two working days). Please call us on 01-6777179 if you need an item urgently to confirm we can get it packed before the respective courier picks-up.
Items ordered directly from the website or by phone are covered by a seven day cooling off period (under EU Distance Selling regulations) within which you may cancel the item and receive a full refund. If the item has already been dispatched then you are under obligation to return it at your own liability for the cancellation to stand, and you refund will be less our shipping costs. Orders made in person are not covered by any such statutory cooling off period.
In addition to its remarkable optical zoom power of 30x*, this camera features a large number of manual functions to boost your creativity, such as a LVF (Live View Finder), a Control Ring, RAW compatibility, and Focus Peaking, all in an ultra-compact body. This enables highly detailed shooting that covers everything from ordinary snapshots to travel scenes.
* 35mm camera equivalent: 24-720mm
Crystallising its optical technologies, Panasonic succeeded in integrating 24mm ultra wide-angle 30x zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 24-720mm) in slim, flat body. It lets you capture a variety of scenes from dynamic landscapes to people or animals distant away.
This camera comes equipped with a 0.2-inch LVF (Live View Finder) with 200K-dot equiv. resolution and 100% field of view. It ensures stable framing and high visibility of live view images even at high magnification and under strong sunlight. As an option, it can be set to 60 fps to smoothly display fast-moving subjects.
The HYBRID O.I.S.+ for video recording with 5-axis correction detects and effectively compensates for the camera's 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. The Level Shot Function detects the horizontal line of the recording image and keeps it even if the camera is tilted. It lets you take stable video even in blind recording such as shooting from high angle.
This camera integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity with NFC technology to enjoy flexible shooting and instant image sharing with easy operation. You can connect the camera with a smartphone / tablet by just placing them nearby and follow the simple guidance. Setting-up is extremely easy and finishes within a few seconds. Even if a smartphone / tablet is incompatible with NFC, it can be easily connected to the camera by just scanning the QR code displayed on the camera monitor.
• To use this feature, it is recommended to update “Panasonic Image App” to the latest version.
The 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is integrated in the camera to realize both high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. The superior NR (Noise Reduction) system in the Venus Engine enables noise reduction to take place without missing low-frequency noise in its large detection area. It results in the high sensitivity image recording even at ISO6400 (extended).
High speed digital signal output technology is integrated to realize high speed consecutive shooting and full-HD video recording. It lets you shoot 10 fps in 18.1-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF.The actuator for the AF lens motor achieves 240fps high speed AF drive, resulting in higher speed AF by approx. 20% at wide and 30% at tele end*. It also contributes to the quick start-up and Light Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities.

This camera complies with recording image in RAW. The software SILKYPIX Developer Studio 4.1 SE allows dramatically higher quality image conversion from RAW to JPEG. Even the images shot at high a ISO setting can be produced sharply with minimum noise.
• The software to process RAW file on PC is not bundled with DMC-ZS40(TZ60).
To do this, SILKYPIX Developer Studio is available for download at Ichikawa Soft Laboratory's website using PC connected to the Internet.

Manual control is easy to try thanks to the Control Ring, which enables direct, intuitive control over frequently used settings: zooming, aperture, shutter speed, and filter of Creative Control. Manual focusing is also available with smooth Control Ring operation.
For more precise control over focusing, this camera incorporates a Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF mode. You can see the peaking of focus while monitoring the subject in live view. You can also take advantage of this function when controlling the camera with a smartphone / tablet via Wi-Fi® in both photo / video recording.
It is easy to shoot a photo with good composition by just choosing the most suitable pattern of composition from – Rule of Thirds Offset, Diagonal Lines, Tunnel, Radiation1, Radiation2 and S-shape – and framing the subjects along the guided lines. Well-composed image has a stunning perspective and it will dramatically look refined. This function can be used in shooting not only with monitor but also with LVF (Live View Finder).
The level Gauge lets the camera detect the horizontal/ vertical angle of view aiding you to create a level composition.
This camera can record high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (for NTSC area) / 50p (for PAL area) videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. Featuring the progressive full-HD video recording capability, subjects with fast motion or fine details are reproduced even more clearly.
The powerful 30x optical zoom with 2-step Zoom function is available in video recording. The advanced image stabilizer HYBRID O.I.S.+ is integrated to suppress hand-shake vibration effectively even in shooting using high zoom. The Level Shot Function detects the horizontal line of recording image and keeps it even if the camera is tilted. It lets you take stable video even in blind recording such as shooting from high angle.
You can record high-speed videos at 120 (for NTSC area) / 100 (for PAL area) fps in HD quality. You can capture scenes that can't be seen with the naked eye, and play them back in dramatic slow motion.
Incorporating a stereo zoom microphone, the videos also come with the high-quality stereo sound of Dolby® Digital, to offer highly realistic sound to the video. Mechanical noise caused by a zooming operation is suppressed to improve the clearness. Also, the Auto Wind Cut function is available to block out most of the noise from background wind automatically making the human voice to stand out.
One-Touch Connection (NFC)
NFC (Near Field Communication) makes Wi-Fi® connection easier. By just touching a NFC compatible smartphone or tablet to the camera, you can change it to a remote controller or transfer data to it.
On the Go (Shoot & Share)
Take full advantage of Wi-Fi® connectivity using the "Panasonic Image App" even when you are out.
At Home (Save & Playback)
Enjoy Wi-Fi® convenience at home.
The GPS (Global Positioning System) in the camera complies with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to further enhance its detection accuracy for its increased number of satellites. Integrating the GPS function, it shows the name of the Country/Region, State/Prov., County/Township, City/Town/Village and Landmark using the internal data to give you real-time information of the place when taking photos to add fun of photo shooting during travel.
For beginners, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode supports taking beautiful pictures with a variety of shooting-assist functions including i-Food mode and Intelligent Handheld Nightshot. The iA Plus mode lets you adjust defocusing area in the background, exposure compensation and white balance for more flexible control.
The 3.0-inch large 920K-dot monitor assures high visibility in any lighting conditions, which is excellent for both shooting and playing back images.
The camera's battery can be recharged either via AC or via USB according your convenience.
