Panasonic launch paparazzi-ready Lumix DMC-FZ48

Cameras, Tech Digest news

Panasonic’s 2011 camera push continues today as they reveal the latest addition to their Lumix range, the DMC-FZ48. Set to be a stonking little shooter, it’s packed full of features to make casual snappers and the paparazzi alike take note.

Top of the features list is a 24x optical zoom, enough to get a close up shot of a paperclip from miles away. This is paired with 12.1MP stills and 1080p video capture, making the DMC-FZ48 the peeping Tom’s new best friend.

Elsewhere you get the usual array of filters and pro-level imaging controls, as well as Intelligent Auto settings for those less well versed in camera wizadry, while the DMC-FZ48 also has the ability to shoot 3D photos providing you’ve got a 3D TV to display them on.

Release date and pricing have yet to be confirmed, but we’ll pass any info on as we recieve it.
