Announced in July, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 looks like just another 12 megapixel ultracompact. Looks can be deceiving. The FP8 marks a step into new territory for Panasonic, both in design of the internally-contained lens and the new blazing fast auto focus system. Our preview of the FP8 covers our first impressions and some initial sample images.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 is one of the pioneers of a whole new breed of digital camera. As one of Panasonic's G-Series Micro Four Thirds systems, the GH1 doesn't seem to know or care whether it's a point and shoot on steroids or a compact DSLR with attitude. Our First Thoughts offers a sneak peek at our upcoming full review of the Lumix GH1.
Panasonic offered DCR a few hours with a pre-production Lumix GF1 at a press event in Germany this week. The first images and video emerging from the GF1 offer a glimpse at the performance of Panasonic's latest Micro Four Thirds offering - and European history. Take a look at how the Lumix GF1 fared in and around Berlin's Castle Charlottenburg.
Panasonic announces the Lumix DMC-GF1 today, their smallest interchangeable-lens system yet. The style echoes Panasonic's ultracompact lineup, but the GF1 is Micro Four Thirds all the way. It sports a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 720p HD video recording, and a 3.0 inch LCD. Two new lenses are also announced with the GF1.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580 succeeds the FX500 as the latest model in the Panasonic lineup to feature a touch screen. The FX580 combines trendy touch interface with a new Venus Engine V and retains the 720p HD video recording and 25mm wide angle lens we've come to know and love in its predecessor. Read on for our first impressions.
It's been almost a year since we reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, but that doesn't mean we forgot all about it. This advanced compact is still a cornerstone in Panasonic's lineup and it's the spotlight of our Users Speak Out feature today. Take a look at what everyone's (still) saying about the Lumix LX3.
Panasonic is rolling out a new ultrazoom, the Lumix DMC-FZ35. From the 18x Leica lens to the camera body itself, it shares a lot with its predecessor, the Lumix FZ28. Some light updates, including the addition of AVCHD Lite, keep this model competitive in the ultrazoom market.
Panasonic announces two new slim point-and-shoot cameras this morning, the Lumix DMC-FP8 and DMC-ZR1. The FP8 boasts the sharp style of an ultra-compact and the ZR1 brings a 0.3mm slim aspherical lens to the high-zoom class. Both models promise faster operation and better energy-efficiency.
Panasonic, after some careful deliberation, has decided that certain third party batteries fail to meet the required "rigid safety standards [that] Panasonic uses." While it's certainly heartwarming to think that Panasonic only has your best interests at heart, it would be no surprise to find this become standard operating procedure.
Panasonic has released a firmware update, version 1.3, for its Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera.
If you're shopping for an ultrazoom, chances are you've taken a long look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28. An update to Panasonic's popular FZ18, the FZ28 features a 10.1 megapixel sensor coupled with an 18x, 27-486mm zoom lens, and this camera is so well-liked, in fact, that we couldn't find any reviewer willing to give this model a thumbs down in this month's Users Speak Out feature.
In a press release this morning, Panasonic has spelled out purchasing details for its long-awaited addition to its Micro Four Thirds line. Announced at PMA 2009, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 will be rolling out to retailers in early June. As expected based on previously announced European pricing, the new HD-capable model will command a hefty $1499.95 kit price when it hits stores next month.
