Panasonic announces new Lumix FX75 AKA FX70

Panasonic just made a standalone announcement of a lone compact camera today. The new Lumix FX75 (AKA the Lumix FX70) is Panasonic’s latest touchscreen camera. The camera doesn’t feature any manual controls (a change from their old FX500 and FX550 touchscreen cameras) but does have a brand new ultra-wide angle lens that starts at 24 mm and with a very “bright” wide-angle aperture value of F2.2.
