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.
At a press conference this morning, Panasonic revealed tech specs for its latest Micro Four Thirds camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 – and though it's hardly surprising, the big news surrounding this camera that shares most of its tech with the Lumix G1 is undoubtedly the new model's video capabilities.
Following up on yesterday's official announcement of the new 10.1 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 compact ultrazoom, Panasonic was gracious enough to give us the afternoon to take a pre-production sample of its latest effort out for some afternoon shooting.
In a forward-looking press conference this morning, Panasonic announced its intent to control 15 percent of the digital camera market worldwide by 2010.
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.

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.

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.
