Care Plan
from £1.50 per month


Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Take digital photography to a whole new level of quality, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera offers a high 18.1 megapixel resolution, a vast 20x optical zoom, built-in WiFi and much more!

Perfect photos

At the core of the Panasonic DMC is a highly sensitive 18.1-megapixel MOS image sensor that delivers stunning detail with true-to-life colour reproduction. The image sensor converts the optical image into an electrical signal at rapid speed, ensuring stills and videos are captured in exceptional form.

The high speed Venus Engine processing unit and Edge Smoothing NR feature a noise reduction system, each image has reduced noise and a smoothed edge, even at a high ISO. What's more, the processor engine realises high speed continuous shooting at 10fps, allowing you to shoot a soaring bird or fast moving sports moment at full resolution with lightning fast autofocus, a moment is never missed!

Optical prowess

The advanced Panasonic camera incorporates a 24mm wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with a huge 20x optical zoom range. You can capture distant shots and stunning close-ups with outstanding quality and amazing versatility.

The Intelligent Resolution technology combines the optical zoom and digital zoom to extend the zoom range to 40x with minimum loss in picture quality.

The LEICA lens has been constructed with Nano Surface Coating that ensures striking clarity with minimum flare and ghosting.

Sharing images

With integrated WiFi connectivity and NFC technology you are able to link the Panasonic DMC-TZ40EB camera to a smartphone or tablet device. Upload and share your snaps on your favourite social networking sites in moments.

A "Panasonic Image App" enables remote shooting and effortless SNS upload with instant transfers. You can even playback images wirelessly through a DLNA-compliant VIERA HDTV thanks to Wi-Fi Direct.


You can now save the location information to each image, the nifty GPS technology saves and displays the name of the Country, Region, County, Town, City and worldwide landmark information, wherever you are in the world.

The still and video information is automatically organised for a swift finding. A logging function enables you to view travelling distance on the Google Earth application, thanks to a 3” multi-touch screen you can scale maps by pinching in and out on the touch screen display.

HD video

Enjoy video recording in Full HD (1080p) with dramatic smoothness at 50p in AVCHD Progressive and 25p in MP4. The Hybrid Optical Image Stabiliser Plus and Level Shot uses a 5-axis correction to detect and eliminate the camera's 5 types of movement, resulting in crystal clear videos and stills. You can really up the video quality with 100 fps video speed, allowing you to get creative with your recording. This camera provides a sure-fire way to achieve stunning photographs and videos to cherish

The pocket-friendly size, high image quality and impressive technology make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera a travel-friendly and easy to use camera companion.
