New additions to the Lumix compact family3rd February 2011     By: Panasonic Media

'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.
