Photographers that travel frequently and want a powerful camera with advanced GPS geo-tagging abilities are well served to check out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30. The Lumix DMC-ZS30 is a smallish travel camera that takes over where the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 left off. The ZS-30 is equipped with a whopping 20x zoom lens that gives field of views that almost rival full size DSLR cameras.
As far as budget-saving, consumer-friendly cameras go, Panasonic has been putting out a wide range of cameras that have great appeal to the amateur audience. The Lumix DMC-ZS15 falls into this same category. It has a 12 megapixel sensor, 16X zoom lens, a very simplistic movie mode, and no GPS capabilities.
On July 18 Panasonic introduced three new cameras, the DMC- LX7, DMC-G5, and the DMC-Z200. The FZ200 is a versatile, powerful camera that will come on the market in September, 2012 and is an upgrade to the Lumix FZ- series that was introduced back in mid 2004 with the FZ3, FZ15, and FZ20 boasting at the time the less powerful 12x zoom.
July 18 Panasonic announced the release of the LX5’s replacement, the Lumix DMC- LX7 into the compact camera market. They incorporated a 1/1.7 inch CMOS sensor. Even though their lens covers the same focal range as its predecessor, it is two stops faster and has a decent speed throughout the entire 24-90 mm zoom range.
Panasonic’s newest release to the realm of the mid range DSLR is the Lumix DMC-G5. Normally we have seen some pretty positive things from Panasonic and the Lumix range, catering for all budgets and level of enthusiasm for photography. Now the DMC-G5 is set to compete with cameras such as the Fuji X10, Nikon 3200 as well as the new Canon EOS M set to release in September.
