Panasonic Bares Pricing for 2011 Lumix Cameras


It’s $400 for the Lumix ZS10 and Lumix TS3, $350 for the Lumix FX78 and $300 for the Lumix ZS8. All four new cameras feature Leica lenses, High Definition video recording-capabilities and Panasonic’s iA technology. They will be available in late March.

The LUMIX ZS10, LUMIX TS3 and LUMIX FX78 also include the new Panasonic 3D Photo mode, which promises realistic 3D photos by taking 20 consecutive photos and overlaying the two best images to provide a 3D image that can then be played on a Panasonic VIERA 3D HDTV. The format of the 3D image is compatible with MPO, and can also be played back on other MPO-compatible equipment such as a televisions, digital photo frames and printers.

The LUMIX ZS10 (shown above) and ZS8, both 14.1 megapixels, have a 16x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with a wide angle at 24mm. The ZS10 adds GPS.
