- 12.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor
- 4x optical zoom lens, 25-100mm equivalent
- Full HD video recording, with stereo sound and optical zoom
- Video and Photo Shooting at the same time
- 8fps Continuous Shooting
- 3.5inch touch screen

The camera is switched on/off using the front sliding cover, revealing two lenses, built in flash, and focus assist lamp.
On top in a traditional on/off button, stereo microphones, speaker, shutter release with zoom control, and dedicated video button.
The back is dominated by the large 3.5 inch touch screen, and looking at this you'd think it was just a normal compact camera with a large screen - but instead they've managed to fit 2 lenses and sensors in the camera to enable 3D shooting.
The camera will be available in December, for more information have a look at the full Panasonic Lumix 3D1 announcement.
