It looks like if you were in the market for a new compact camera, you might be spoilt for choice thanks to Panasonic taking the wraps off a host of new compact cameras. We had previously reported on the Lumix ZS20, and the Lumix TS4 and TS20 rugged compact cameras, and adding to that list of compact cameras from Panasonic will be the Lumix FX80.
The FX80 features a 12.1MP camera sensor, a 24mm f2.5 wide angle lens, 5x optical zoom, a 3” LCD touchscreen display that features touch autofocus (much like how you would focus with smartphone cameras), and the ability to record Full HD videos. Additional features that customers can expect from the FX80 include a variety of filter effects, such as Expressive, Retro, High Dynamic, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, High Key, Low Key, Miniature Effect, Toy Effect and Soft Focus.
Pricing and availability of the Panasonic Lumix FX80 has yet to be determined, but stay tuned as we will keep you informed when more information has been made available.
