Panasonic devises special-edition Lumix

updated 10:55 am EDT, Fri May 18, 2007

Hamasaki/Hello Kitty Lumix

In a somewhat unusual step, the Japanese division of Panasonic is using two popular figures to promote a special edition of the Lumix DMC-FX30. Not only does the camera bear the ubiquitous image of Hello Kitty, already found on other cameras, it also has an "A" symbol for Ayumi Hamasaki, a Lumix spokeswoman and one of the country's most famous singers.

The camera itself is a 7.2-megapixel model with 3.6x optical zoom, covering a 28-100mm range, with an anti-shake stabilizer to reduce blur. The LCD screen measures 2.5 inches. Though there is only 27MB of internal memory, the camera is one of the few that supports both SD and SDHC cards, which should allow as much as 32GB of removable storage. The special edition is "coming soon" according to the online shop mu-mo. [via Impress Watch]
