Two of the new cameras include both Wi-Fi and NFC functionality, "to provide the widest range of remote shooting options, remote viewing and instant sharing on social networks," says Panasonic.
The Lumix DMC ZS30, known as the TZ40 in Europe, is billed as "Panasonic's most advanced photo and video hybrid compact camera to date" and includes an 18.1 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor, 20x optical zoom and 60p full HD video recording capabilities.
"With the addition of integrated Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities, the ZS30 offers the widest shooting, sharing and viewing options," says Panasonic. "You can frame and shoot an image remotely with your smartphone or tablet, share images instantly with your favorite social network, and browse your images and videos via your TV or smartphone."
The Lumix DMC TS5, which will be called the FT5 in Europe, is pitched as "the ultimate tough still and video camera for the adventurous photographer". It is waterproof to a depth of 12 metres, shockproof from a height of two metres, freeze proof down to -10C (14F) and pressure resistant to 100kgs.
