Far-reaching: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 / TZ100 hands-on preview
Panasonic Lumix DSC-ZS100 / TZ100 basic specs
Panasonic is using CES 2016 to announce the latest two models in its series of travel zoom cameras (known as the TZ series in most of the world or ZS in North America). While one of them is a logical replacement for the existing models, the TZ100/ZS100 is a genuinely more advanced thing altogether, squeezing a 1"-type sensor into a body only slightly larger than we've become used to from cameras in this category.
Traditionally travel zooms have used small sensors (~29mm2) to allow the inclusion of long lenses in a small overall package. Impressively, the ZS100 fits a much larger sensor (~116mm2) while still offering a useful zoom range and sensibly-sized form factor. The larger sensor offers better image quality, which has prompted Panasonic to offer a maximum ISO of 12800 on the ZS100, with an extended setting of 25600.
