Compact Lumix gets all lacquered up

When in doubt, launch a limited edition

Matsushita

Here we go again--another "limited edition" vanity camera. A few days ago we saw Pentax re-issue its 18k gold SLR to mark its 60th anniversary. Not to be outdone, Matsushita is coming out with its own special Lumix DMC-FX07 edition in five lacquered colors. As Fareastgizmos notes, the compact cameras--limited to 100 per color--are the same as the Panasonic model launched earlier this year, except for the finishes. Oh, and they come in boxes made from paulownia trees that are native to China and cultivated in Japan and Korea. (Who could resist anything that comes in a box made of paulownia wood?)
