Panasonic pops out pair of snappers

Super-zoom and compact sibling

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Panasonic has unwrapped a couple of new cameras today: the FZ48, a super-zoom model and the LS5 compact, both under its Lumix brand.

The latter's a typical compact. A 14.1Mp sensor sits behind a 26mm wide-angle lens with a 5x optical zoom. It'll shoot video at 30fps 720p HD.

It's designed to run off AA batteries - handy if you find you've left your charger at home.

The DMC-FZ48 is a beefier boy with a 25mm Leica lens that'll give you a 24x optical zoom. Its 12.1Mp sensor and image processor are good for shooting 1080p HD video. It'll take 3D pics too. Gosh.

Alas, there's no word yet on when either of these cameras will be out - the Autumn, probably - or how much they'll cost when they are. ®
