Panasonic LUMIX TZ50 Camera with WiFi, HD Features

Panasonic today introduced the LUMIX DMC-TZ50, a 9-megapixel compact with a 28mm wide-angle lens, 10x optical zoom, 3-inch LCD screen and the ability to record HD video.

The new camera also features Wi-Fi and standard 802.11b/g wireless LAN connectivity. With access to T-Mobile HotSpot service, users can upload digital photos taken with the TZ50 directly to Picasa Web Albums, a free online photo-sharing service from Google.

The TZ50 is the latest addition to the LUMIX TZ-Series, known for packing a 28mm wide-angle 10x optical zoom Leica DC lens (equivalent to 28-280mm on a 35mm film camera) into a compact body. The 28mm wide-angle lens captures subjects and scenes wider at the same standpoint than a normal 35mm camera.

Additionally, the new TZ50 integrates the capability of recording 720p HD (high-definition) motion pictures together with its direct output function allowing users to enjoy watching both still and motion pictures in HD quality on a HDTV via an optional component cable or by inserting the SD Memory Card into the SD slot.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 will be available in May 2008 for $450.
