Panasonic Releases Four New Lumix Models
Panasonic might have released some new point-and-shoot cameras at this year’s CES, but they waited a while to release new on four new Lumix camera models. Their new flagship camera is the Lumix ZS20, which the company says is its slimmest 20x zoom camera, coming in at only 1.11” thick. As the flagship model, it features impressive specs like 1080p video recording at 60 frames per second, a 14.1-megapixel MOS sensor, 10fps burst shooting, GPS and geotagging, a 20x optical zoom Leica lens that extends from 24-480mm and lots of manual control. It’s going for $349.99 and will be available come March. Panasonic also dropped its ZS15, which is $70 less than the ZS20 model and features 12.1-megapixels, 1080i60 video recording, 16x zoom while maintaining many of the ZS20’s advanced features.
The company also revamped their rugged camera line with the new Lumix TS4 and TS20. The Lumix TS4 will go for $399.99 and is waterproof to 40 feet, shockproof to 6.6, freezeproof, and dustproof. It comes loaded with 1080i60 video recording, a 28mm, 4.6x zoom lens and a 12.1-megapixel CCD sensor, as well as some cool travel features like GPS, a compass and altimeter. The TS20 is a bit cheaper and priced at $199.99 and features 720p video, 4x zoom, and lots of filters and effects. It’ll be available in February, while the TS4 comes out in March.
