Panasonic outs new DMC-ZS10 digital camera

Panasonic expanded its digital camera line up for 2011 today with the addition of the new Lumix DMC-ZS10 digital camera. The camera has a versatile lens that can shoot ultra wide-angle to long zoom shots. The total optical zoom range of the camera is 16x and the lens has 24mm wide angle as well.

The ZS10 is crammed with features that will make the camera interesting to many people like a 3-inch rear LCD that allows touch zoom, touch autofocus, touch shutter, and touch playback. That means you can just touch the screen rather than wading through deep menus and lots of buttons.

The camera is also 3D image compatible and it has a 14.1MP resolution. Video recording in 1080p resolution is supported and the camera uses the Panasonic Venus Engine FHD. The cam has integrated GPS for geo tagging images and uses internal data to tag the photos with information on landmarks and the city or town the photo was taken in. Pricing is unannounced at this time but the camera will land in March.
