Panasonic G

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 21st, September 2008

During a Panasonic Press event, at which the new Micro Four Thirds system was evaluated and further explained, Panasonic also revealed the development in process of a new Micro FourThirds system camera. Panasonic already claims that it will introduce the world's smallest High Definition system camera in 2009. More information will probably be revealed at the upcoming PMA 2009 in Las Vegas. The prototype referred to as Panasonic LUMIX G, seems quite similar to the new Panasonic LUMIX G1 however, at first sight a number of striking features stand out. On top of the body a (stereo) microphone is positioned and on the back, top right side, a red button especially for HD movie capture is placed.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Tuesday 26th, August 2008

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX35 was introduced at the beginning of this year and has been on the market for a while now. The camera belongs to the FX-series of cameras that has been available on the market for many generations. It is striking to see how Panasonic have continued to build up the LUMIX compact camera line at considerable speed, and it seems this progress is far from over. The market segment is growing considerably and this year, for the first time, Panasonic was able to get a number 1 ranking in five European countries. This does not suprise me to be honest, while the clearly rising line cannot escape the consumer and trade market’s attention.

Panasonic Lumix TZ5 review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Tuesday 27th, May 2008

Compact cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix TZ5 are very much appreciated, and that is for a reason. A camera of this format, equipped with a 10x optical zoom is liked by the majority of the consumers. Of course it is very convenient to have a camera with this zoom range at hand. Life is all about ease! Besides the 10x zoom, the Panasonic TZ5 features optical image stabilisation which certainly improves the quality. And have I mentioned the 28mm wide angle yet?

At the press conference in Dublin I was able to shoot with the new stylish Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 compact camera. The Panasonic FX33 is a camera for the photographer who appreciates convenience shooting and a stylish design. The camera is easy to handle and incorporates a range of pre-programmed scenes, it is offering a range of intelligent camera features to make digital photography as simple as possible. I took the Panasonic camera with me to the Dublin area and was able to test the new intelligent camera features in combination with the MEGA O.I.S system. I have to remind you that the images of the Panasonic Lumix FX33 are still a pre-production level, not final level!
