Panasonics announced a pair of new digital cameras today in a new line called the FS-series. The Lumix FS-20 and FS5 cameras both have a 30mm wide-angle lens with 4x optical zoom along with intelligent auto mode, face detection, quick autofocus intelligent ISO control and intelligent scene selector.

“Panasonic added the FS-Series to our LUMIX line of digital cameras to address the needs of consumers who want a point-and-shoot camera that is not only affordable, intuitive and easy-to-use, but also stylish and small enough that they slip it in their pocket or into a small purse,” said Alex Fried, National Marketing Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “The FS-line packages Leica lenses, Intelligent Auto Mode, powerful image processing and superior memory power in a small, sleek design. We want our LUMIX digital cameras to have features that enable great digital photos regardless of the level of the photographer.”

Mega OIS uses gyrosensors to detect hand-shake and shifts the lens to keep images blur free. The FS20 will have a 3-inch LCD and the FS5 will use a 2.5-inch LCD. The FS20 will sell for $299.95 and the FS5 will go for $249.95. Both cameras will be available in February.
