Panasonic has introduced its new ultra-slim, compact and stylish digital camera with 24mm ultra-wide-angle Leica lens – Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX75, which combines 14.1 megapixel resolution, F2.2 LEICA lens with 5x optical zoom, 3″ full touch screen, 11-point autofocus system, AVCHD Lite HD Video recording, Dolby Digital Creator and renowned Panasonic’s iA mode in a single device.

“The Panasonic LUMIX FX75’s 24mm ultra-wide-angle lens is a rare feature to have on a compact camera – especially one this small, so we are packing a lot of value and quality into this slim and stylish digital camera,” commented David Briganti, Senior Product Manager for Imaging at Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “Most consumers value the benefits of a long zoom, but understanding the importance of a wide-angle isn’t as known. With a 24mm ultra-wide angle like the one on the LUMIX FX75, photographers have a wider range of composition possibilities with approximately 213% larger viewing space compared to that of a 35mm camera.”
