Panasonic introduces four new compact cameras


Panasonic just announced new compact cameras (Source: Dpreview):
1) The ZS10 and ZS8 compact superzooms.
2) The TS3 (FT3 in Europe) rugged compact camera
3) The FX78 ultra-compact with an F2.5-5.9 5x zoom lens starting at 24mm.

That’s it ;)

    Are these (m)4/3 cameras? If not, why on this website?

  • Seriously, who cares?

      Hi, just skip the news if you are not interested. I added this for the few of you that are also interested in compact cameras :)

  • Really….

    Who cares?

    Panasonic has ( finally ) started copying stacking modes that Sony introduced more than a year ago. They are used for Handheld Night Shot and 3D scene modes on these cameras. Still no in-camera panorama or HDR though.

    Sony copied these modes to their NEX and SLT cameras, so hopefully Panasonic will introduce them in the G series as well. That’s why the news is here, more useful info than that of Fuji X100…

      Well, this is just as opinionated as the comment you’re commenting… As or me I care A LOT about what’s happening on Fuji X100’s side…

    For this blog to be alive, I think Admin is trying to post at least 2 or 3 news items a day. I agree that these are not m43 stuff, but well, Panasonic seems to use the same kind of bodies and interfaces for all its cameras, so I guess by following the other stuff they are working on we might get a cue as to what novelties are to be expected for their next m43 camera.

  • “The LUMIX ZS10 shoots 10 fps in 14-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF.”

    Good call putting this here Admin, geotagging and waterproofing are things we want in m43’s. But some folks got nothin’ better to do but whine…

    The TS/FT cameras are great little cameras, I have had a camera die due to getting wet (while in a “waterproof” pocket). One of these little beauts might just come on my next snorkelling trip. Just gotta put it on a headstrap for video!

    Jeez, a compass, barometer, altimeter & GPS locator on a 12 MP camera with a 28-128mm zoom that can go down to 12m and is only the size of a pack of UNO cards isn’t interesting? All they have do do is put a phone in it now and they’ll have every outdoor enthusiast in the world at their door! Well done Panasonic!

    Wow, I remember when I bought my ZS3 less than two years ago, it was the newest Panasonic compact camera out there. Now it’s already going to be outdated by 4 models.

    On another note, people need to stop complaining about articles they don’t care about. It’s simple, if you don’t like it, don’t click on the article. “Who cares?” Well you obviously cared enough to click on this article and comment on it.
