Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50S Wi-Fi: First Japan, Then USA
Come June, Americans can get their hands on this little wi-fi gem. (Japan gets a hold of it in May.) We expect this to be one great little camera, like its other Lumix cousins. The wi-fi feature allows you connect to the web via any wireless network or T-Mobile HotSpot and access a photo-sharing site to upload, organize and delete. Pretty cool, hm? The best part is that the camera is set up to work with Picasa (Google's free photo-sharing service) -- hopefully the days of manufacturer-exclusive photo services are over.
Amazon's got it for $449.95 on pre-order. Comes in silver only. Here are the stats:
- 9.1 megapixel
- 28mm wide-angle Lecia lens, 10x optical zoom
- 3-inch Intelligent LCD
- HD output (for TV, computer monitor)
- Wi-Fi connects to wireless networks and hotspots
- Mega IOS (Panasonic for "reduces hand-shake")
- Intelligent ISO, Continuous Auto-Focus, Red-eye correction
- Face recognition, Scene selection
