About Panasonic Lumix Cameras - What's in the name?
It was a flash of brilliance. When Leica optical technologies converged with Panasonic digital technologies, a bright new light – Lumix - was illuminated in the camera world. We coined the Lumix name from the words "luminance" and "mix," as in mixing different things together. Lumix represents the crystallization of technologies from two entirely different companies, each a leader in its field. These great forces - optical technologies from Leica and digital imaging technologies from Panasonic - transcended the barriers of culture and experience to create something new. What drew them together was a common goal: to give people the ability to create photographs that, like the finest works of art, touch us on a deep emotional level. This goal serves as the foundation of a collaborative partnership between Leica and Panasonic that is helping to revolutionize the world of digital camera lenses.

A Fusion of Leading Panasonic Technologies
Each of the two companies that together created the Lumix lens is a world leader in its field. The Leica name is nothing short of legendary. Leica's history is closely interwoven with the history of the camera itself. Favored by top photographers all around the world, Leica cameras have captured some of the most memorable, emotionally rich photos ever recorded. Panasonic is a pioneer and industry leader in a different branch of the image-producing world. The company has developed and introduced a great many new technologies in broadcast equipment and video cameras, among other products. In their collaboration, these two technological giants not only complemented each other's strengths, they also merged their vast technical resources to create something that neither could have created on its own. Synergy in image creation - that's the significance of their partnership. That's the beauty of Lumix.

The Uniqueness of Panasonc Lumix Digital Still Cameras
The meshing of Leica and Panasonic technologies has achieved the unique capabilities that distinguish Lumnix lenses from all other digital camera lenses. The Leica DC lens system captures even the most delicate and subtle nuances. The Mega OIS prevents blurry images caused by shaky hands. The Venus Engine LSI dramatically improves both image resolution and camera response time. These are just a few of the original technologies that make Lumix the most expressive and responsive digital camera the world has yet seen. There is a revolution in photography under way, and its name is Lumix.

The Limitless World of Digital Photography
Lumix does not seek to follow in the footsteps of film cameras. Nor does it seek to be like other digital cameras. Lumix carves out its own world. It is a photographic tool capable of capturing deep emotion, of creating soul-stirring art. It is a perfect harmony of the digital camera's three key elements - the lens, image processing engine, and responsive functions. It invites the user to explore new possibilities in image creativity. And Lumix is still evolving. Panasonic is making Lumix cameras even more functional by allowing them to connect easily to products such as televisions and Diga DVD recorders. With Lumix and Panasonic's many network-connectable products, the door has opened wide to photographic, creative, and entertainment possibilities that were unimaginable even a few years ago.

Panasonic USA - PMA 2006 Orlando
Campbell said. “With technological capabilities that are outpacing those of more traditional imaging companies, Panasonic is poised to bring a new level of consumer-friendly digital cameras to the market.” Campbell is currently overseeing the launch of the 2006 line and directing the company’s plans for exhibiting at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) Show in Orlando, Fla., February 26-March 1.
