After release of the first Panasonic’s digital camera with touch screen, shortly after they are presenting us a new digital camera TZ50 – first Panasonic’s digital camera with a Wi-Fi wireless.
Other manufacturers had had a similar experiments, Canon with it’s PowerShot SD430 Digital Elph Wireless (Digital Ixus Wireless) released in 2005, Nikon also with Coolpix P1 and P2 also in 2005. It’s quite obvious, cause there where no new digital cameras with Wireless adapters from 2005 that that kind of concept was not accepted by the market.
What’s the difference tween 2005 and now with Panasonic new TZ50 wifi camera. First the timing, blogging and photo sharing has become not just normal thing but a must. It is not enough to make a photo but you have to share it with your friends fast – right away. Panasonic is offering one year use of T-Mobile’s Hot-spot service in the US. So basically you can make photos and share it this instant, via T-Mobile hot-spot using your Picassa gallery.
So maybe we are on the beginning of the new renesanse for digital cameras with Wi-Fi options.
Other that WiFi options, Panasonic’s new TZ50 digital camera is no diferent from previous TZ5 camera.
It’s brighest point are great 28-280mm equivivalent 10x zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens. A bit more megapixels ( comparing to the predecessor TZ3) now wit 9.1 megapixel optica sensor. This camera also implements Panasonics MEGA OIS image stabilization.
After WiFi experiments from two largest digital cameras manufacturers nobody else was brave enough to try. Panasonic is determined to gain bigger cut of the market, or at least media attention with their extraordinary digital cameras.
