What was once TZ is now ZS. That's the news that we expect to come out of a Panasonic press conference later this morning in Miami, where the electronics giant behind the Lumix line of digicams will unveil its latest compact, 12x ultrazooms: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1.
Today's most surprising Panasonic announcement came in the form of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1, the manufacturer's first waterproof/dustproof/shockproof digital camera. HD video capture, a 4.6x optical zoom, and a 2.7 inch LCD provide a solid collection of basic specs for this 12.1 megapixel go-anywhere compact.
Panasonic took the wraps off two new FX cameras this morning: the ultracompact Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580 touch screen model. Both cameras offer 12.1 megapixel resolution, 5x Leica lenses with 25mm wide-angle coverage, HD video shooting, and Panasonic's new Face Recognition system.
Panasonic has rolled out a firmware update for its Lumix DMC-LX3 advanced compact.
We were disappointed that Panasonic didn't have any news to share with the world at last week's Consumer Electronics Show, but the company has rectified that situation this morning with the launch of two new Lumix FS models: the 12.1 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 and 10.1 megapixel DMC-FS7.
Nothing about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS85 is cutting-edge, but combine a very solid list of features that includes optical image stabilization, plenty of resolution, and a 4x zoom lens with a presumed street price hovering near the $100 and the FS85 might just be the entry-level deal of the year.
The folks at Panasonic obviously don't believe the megapixel wars are over: the recently introduced Lumix DMC FX150 generates absolutely mammoth 14.7 megapixel images. But with a 28mm wide-angle lens and manual exposure controls, there's more to Panasonic's latest than extreme resolution.
The list of lens options for the only Micro Four Thirds camera currently on the market, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, got a lot longer today.
Panasonic has provided official pricing and retail release information for its latest interchangeable lens camera, the compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1.
In an effort to iron out one of the big wrinkles in the Four Thirds partnership, Olympus, Panasonic, and Sigma have jointly announced today a new global system for updating Four Thirds lens firmware.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 was officially launched in Europe this week. We took the opportunity during the launch event to do some shooting with a pre-production G1.
