Panasonic has introduced the LUMIX DMC-ZS10 as the newest member of its LUMIX ZS-Series of digital cameras. It sports a 24mm ultra-wide-angle and 16x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmar and features full-High Definition 1920×1080 video recording capability, a newly-adopted large 3.0-inch, 460,000-dot Smart Touch Intelligent LCD –which allows for Touch Zoom, Touch Auto Focus (AF), Touch Shutter, and Touch Playback.
The LUMIX ZS10 also features a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) function allowing geotagged images to be pinpointed via online maps and shared with friends and families. The camera also features the new Panasonic 3D Photo mode, which produces a realistic 3D photo by taking 20 consecutive photos and overlaying the two best images that provide a 3D image that can then be played on a Panasonic VIERA 3D HDTV, according to David Briganti, Senior Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company.
The format of the 3D image is compatible with MPO, and can also be played back on other MPO-compatible equipment such as a televisions, digital photo frame and printers. Panasonic also adds the LUMIX Image Uploader for sharing via Facebook (for digital photos) or YouTube (for videos).
The LUMIX ZS10 will be available in March 2011 and pricing will be announced approximately 30 days prior to the shipping date. The LUMIX ZS10 will be available in black, red, blue, silver, and brown. For more info go to http://www.panasonic.com/lumix .
