Panasonic have just released their newsy LUMIX digital camera; the DMC-LS80. This latest edition to their LUMIX line comes with a newly developed LUMIX DC VARIO lens system, 3x optical zoom, 8.1-megapixel high resolution and it is powered by 2 AA batteries (which is always good to have on a camera).
The DMC LS80 also comes with:
MEGA O.I.S – Reduces camera shake with Gyrosensors that detect hand-shake and an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) lens system
Intelligent ISO - determines if the photo subject is moving and changes the ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly; enabling a blur-free photo.
Auto Macro – automatically switches to the Macro setting when in close proximity to the photo subject, ideal for those extreme close-up shots.
The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LS80 will be available in pink, black and silver models in February 2008 for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $149.95.
