5 New Panasonic Lumix Digital Cameras For 2010

By Updated on

Panasonic have just announced their 2010 camera lineup to be hitting the stores later on this summer. Included in the new models is the follow on to the Lumix DMC-LX3, the eagerly awaited DMC-LX5.

Tim Moynihan over at PCWorld .com is reporting that Panasonic is also adding to its high-zoom range with the launch of two new 24x-optical-zoom models. The Lumix DMC-FZ100 has an optically stabilized lens that Panasonic claim eliminates wide-angle barrel distortion, off color fringing, and chromatic aberration, and has a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor. An August launch is expected with a $500 price tag.

The lower spec Lumix DMC-FZ40 has similar features to the FZ100, but doesn’t have the full HD video shooting capabilities; the flip and swivel LCD screen, and has a 14-megapixel CCD sensor instead of the FZ100 CMOS sensor. The FZ40 is expected at the same time but for the price of $400.

A pocket sized Lumix FX700 with a 3-inch touch screen is also being added to the lineup, this has the same 14-megapixel CMOS sensor found on the FZ100. With an august launch date and the choice of silver or black for the price of $400.

The rugged Lumix DMC-TS10 is promised to be dustproof, freezeproof, shockproof, and waterproof down to 10ft. This is also 14-megapixel and has the high speed autofocus system found on the LX5.
