The new, slim 12.1 megapixel DMC-FX80 features a bright f/2.5, 24mm ultra wide angle lens, 5x optical zoom and the ability to record full HD video. Intelligent Zoom is also available with the DMC-FX80 which can pull subjects 2x closer than the optical zoom.


Intelligent Auto modes include Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure and Auto Focus can be set by touching the camera's 3inch LCD screen. The F80 offers AC/USB power charging so users can connect to an AC outlet or PC for battery recharging.

The new FX80 will be available in black from March 2012.
