To kick of the day, and my first article on TechNutty, Panasonic have today revealed their latest fixed lens camera to join the Lumix range, named the LF!, the new camera features a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7 MOS sensor and a fixed zoom Lecia DC Vario Summicron lens with a range of 28-200mm (35mm equivalent).
At the widest angle of the lens, the camera has a maximum aperture of f/2.0, as well as packing the new Venus engine and an ISO sensitivity range of 80-12800.
Panasonic say hat this will result in well-balanced images, with great image quality thanks to Panasonic’s Noise Reduction and Edge Smoothing technologies.
The LF1 can also shoot Full HD video at 50i, in either AVCHD or MP4 formats.
Around the back of the camera you’ll find a 3 inch LCD screen with a 0.2 inch electronic viewfinder, on the lens barrel there’s also a control ring at the base allowing for manual control of the aperture, shutter speed and zoom.
The camera also includes integrated Wi-Fi and NFC technology, as well as a high-speed burst shooting mode at 10fps.
You’ll find the LF1 in various stores from mid-June for around £379.
