PanasonicDuring the CES show in Las Vegas Panasonic presented their new Lumix digital camera line for 2004. Among them are two new digital cameras, the DMC-LC50 and DMC-LC70. Compact and lightweight, models DMC-LC50 and DMC-LC70 are great for both the beginner and experienced photographer. The DMC-LC70 boasts a CCD with an effective pixel count of 4 Megapixels, and the DMC-LC50 has an effective pixel count of 3.2 Megapixels. Each offers 3x optical zoom; Panasonic's high-performance Venus Engine LSI; 8-1/2000 seconds shutter speed; MEGA BURST recording; QuickTime motion image recording and many more advanced features. The DMC-LC50 comes with a video cable while the DMC-LC70 includes an A/V cable.
The DMC-LC70 also features a built-in microphone, enabling users to add audio to their still images and motion recordings, and real-time histogram.

Beside these two new models Panasonic also showcases the DMC-FX5, introduced some months ago, and the already well-known DMC-FZ10 camera.

Model DMC-FX5 features a 1/2.5-inch CCD with a total of 4.23 Megapixels. The camera's Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens system comprises 7 elements in six groups, including three aspherical lenses, and is comparable to a 35 to 105mm lens on a 35mm camera. This small, lightweight lens achieves the fine rendering and vivid colour reproduction for which Leica DC lenses are renowned.

Enhanced features include guide lines to help identify horizontal and vertical reference, and a real-time histogram which indicates the exposure status.

This model also features 9 thumbnail image display; 3x digital zoom and 3x optical zoom; QuickTime motion image recording with audio; MEGA BURST recording for lightning-fast consecutive shots; Optical Image Stabilizer to help prevent jitter, especially convenient for handheld telephoto shots, and many more features.

The three new models feature Panasonic's Venus Engine LSI high-speed image processing system, which delivers both superb image rendering and unmatched processing speed.

Responsive and precise, each new camera features quick start-up and shutter speeds, up to 1/2000 sec, that shatter the myth about digital cameras. Each Lumix camera includes SD Viewer software, a USB driver and ArcSoft photo editing software.
