More details on the upcoming Panasonic ZS-7, TS2 cameras

The previously rumored camera model will be called Panasonic ZS-7 (not sure if they will use the same model name in the US). Some more detailed specs emerged today (Google translated - not sure how accurate this translation is):

  • HD video with 720p 30fps
  • Built-in stereo microphone
  • 12x optical enabled zoom
  • New IS system in camera
  • New, dedicated movie mode button
  • New implementation of the exposure button for easier manual settings
  • Built-in GPS: each photo will be tagged with the geo-location and time stamp and those parameters will be searchable
  • SDXC cards compatible
  • HDMI and USB ports
  • New digital zoom solution - it will guarantee high resolution images, without any loss of quality even when using digital zoom

The second expected camera will be the Panasonic TS2 (replacement of the Panasonic TS1). Again, the translation is not easy to understand, but it seems that this camera can survive very deep waters, free fall from substantial height and operate under some extreme weather conditions.

No word on the G model yet.

Expected release: end of January, beginning of February 2010.
