'Point and shoot' cameras do so much more than that these days
that it's almost a fallacy to use this term, even for the cheaper
models available. Following on from the continued success of the
Panasonic Lumix digital camera
range, we have launched a raft of new cameras and thought we'd
walk you through some of the coolest new features available on the
various new products.
First up we have new additions to the FH series, all four of which
feature Leica lenses. The DMC-FH25 and DMC-FH27 offer
better mega pixel and zoom quality, but perhaps the more important
thing to look at is the Intelligent Auto mode. This makes it even
easier to get the settings that match your location and the image
you want to achieve.
In addition, we have the DMC-FH2 and DMC-FH5. The mega
optical image stabilization, face detection and intelligent scene
selector functions mean better reaction times when you're trying to
capture that perfect shot. Perhaps the coolest feature though, is
the Lumix Image Uploader, which enables you to share photos via the
web without having to install any software.
At the entry level end of the range we have the newly introduced S
series, with the DMC-S1 and DMC-S3. These are simple, but stylish
cameras that have all the functionality needed for basic
photography, including optical image stabilization. They also have
720p HD movie recording that goes to show the increasing
availability of quality video for consumers.
More details soon, but you can expect
to see these new Lumix digital
cameras in store early March 2011.
