Panasonic Lumix LS80 : Panasonic is pleased to introduce a new Lumix digital camera DMC-LS80 that combines easy-to-use advanced functions and AA-battery operation convenience. Newly developed Lumix DC VARIO lens system with 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 33-100mm on a 35mm film camera) fits in its compact body and renders clear image to edges. The CCD has been upgraded to 8.1-megapixel high resolution to correspond to trimming or prints in larger size. Both external and internal design is re-examined throughout to enhance the ease of operation. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 surely offers entry-level users an ultimate ease and convenience to let them enjoy shooting beautiful pictures and will be available in silver, black & pink.
