Panasonic has announced a couple new cameras into its Lumix series today, the FZ150 and FX90.

Focusing on the higher-end FX150 first up, this is quite the zoom happy contender with its 24x optical zoom capabilities. It uses a 25mm ultra wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens and is capable of recording 1080 60p video.

Looking closer at the specs, it's got a 12.1-megapixel MOS sensor, a Venus Engine processor, Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), a stereo zoom microphone, 3-inch LCD and sports a 3D Photo mode which works by taking 20 panning shots and selecting two images to synthesize a 3D composite.

Panasonic mentions a late September release for the FX150, at a price tag of right around $500.

Shifting focus to the FX90, this camera is quite the feature packed little point and shoot number with its 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD sensor, 1080 60i video recording capability and the ability to easily transfer photos from the camera to a smartphone or PC via the embedded 802.11b/g/n WiFi support.

Panasonic also offers up the Lumix Link app designed for iOS and Android devices to enable people an easy means of shifting their images to their smartphone or tablet and then chucking said images onto social networks, or perhaps Panasonic's own Lumix Club cloud-based service.

Other functions of the FX90 include a 5x optical zoom, Venus Engine processor, O.I.S., AF point and white balance and a 3-inch LCD that is touchscreen.

A release date nor pricing has been mentioned on this model, though Panasonic said their will be another announcement coming about 30 days prior to shipping.
