New Panasonic FX700 has HD movies and impressive optical quality

The new Panasonic FX700 has the ability to shoot high def movies and take wide angle stills in a pocketable body. With a 5x optical zoom and optical image stabilization the FX700 sounds like the perfect compact for a day out.

The slim, stylish looking FX700 offers the kind of specs that belie the size, managing to pack in a 14MP sensor and 1080 HD movie capabilities into a body around 23mm thick. There’s also a 3″ LCD screen, which takes up a fair portion of the rear of the camera, and full manual controls for aspiring amateur photographers. The F2.2, 24mm Leica lens should capture bright, sharp images and the added versatility of the 5x optical zoom will give anyone wanted a closer crop a degree of control.

The FX700 is certainly a feature-packed, stylish-looking camera with plenty of potential. Check or for more details
