Today, Panasonic has outed a new firmware package developed for its LUMIX DC-GF9, DC-GX800, and DC-GX850 cameras, namely version 1.1, which implements support for the new Beauty Retouch feature.
Specifically speaking, this new addition allows users to apply various aesthetic and makeup effects to faces in your pictures.
When Panasonic introduced the Lumix DC-GH5, it made the bold promise that it would release not one, but two firmware updates that would significantly increase the performance of the camera. The first was to arrive in April and the second a bit later in 'Summer 2017.'
True to its word, Panasonic has announced firmware v1.1 for the GH5, bringing 4:2:2 10-bit Full HD video capture and a series of enhanced capture options for anamorphic shooters.
Panasonic has announced its new Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm F2.8-4 ASPH Micro Four Thirds lens. It's one of a series of F2.8-4 lenses that the company teased when it released the Leica 12-60mm during CES in January, with a 50-200mm being next in line.
The 8-18, equivalent to 16-36mm when mounted on Micro Four Thirds bodies, has 15 elements, which include ED and UHR glass and four aspherics (one of which is made from ED glass). The lens also has a Nano Surface coating to reduce flare and ghosting. It's also designed to work with high-speed contrast-detect autofocus systems like those found on modern Panasonic cameras, and its internal STM motor keeps focusing quiet and smooth. Panasonic claims that its optical design reduces 'image shift' and improves tracking performance while zooming.
Panasonic has updated its travel zoom lineup with the introduction of the Lumix DC-ZS70 (TZ90 outside of North America). New features on the compact ZS70 include a 20.3MP MOS sensor, flip-up 3" touchscreen display and Panasonic's Depth-from-Defocus AF system.
It retains the same 30X, 24-720mm equivalent lens, so-so electronic viewfinder (it's small and some may be bothered by the field sequential tech it uses), 4K video capture and all of the photo-related features that taken advantage of it and the useful Post Focus and Focus Stacking tools.
Panasonic Corp developed an angle sensor that is designed for automotive motors and more than 50% smaller than conventional angle sensors.
The rotation angle of a motor can be measured by attaching a magnet to the rotating shaft of a motor and placing the new sensor, "A3MR," near the magnet. The new product is targeted at hybrid systems using generators that function as motors and electric power steerings.
Panasonic has turned out with another 4G LTE-empowered Android 6.0 cell phone to be specific the Eluga Ray Max. Including a unibody metal outline, this mid-end cell phone is outfitted with a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD 2.5D bended glass show with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 assurance, an octa-center Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (4 x 1.2GHz Cortex A53 + 4 x 1.5GHz Cortex A53) 64-bit processor, an Adreno 505 GPU, a 4GB DDR3 RAM and a 32GB/64GB of expandable interior stockpiling (up to 128GB).
Here's the freshest extension to Panasonic's 4G LTE-enabled Android 6.0 mobile phone line-up, the Eluga Pure. Measuring 8.9mm thick and weighing 160g, this budgetary arrangement opposed PDA wears a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 HD 2.5D twisted glass appear, a 1.25GHz quad-focus MediaTek MT6737 64-bit processor, a Mali-T720 GPU, a 2GB RAM and a 16GB of expandable inside stockpiling.
