Panasonic has extended its range of cameras with a quartet of point-and-shoot snappers, including two that use GPS to ensure that users will never forget where they took their pictures.

Panasonic DMC-TZ20

The company has two new additions to the Lumix TZ range, with the 14.1Mp DMC-TZ18 and DMC-TZ20. Both feature a 24mm wide-angle lenses, a 16x optical zoom, HD video recording and a 3in touchscreen. The TZ20 takes it up a notch with built-in GPS to geotag your shots, as well as 1080i AVCHD recording - the TZ18 does 720p.

Panasonic DMC-FX77
