More new cameras from Panasonic! Now, we'd recommend the Lumix range of compacts to anyone, but we admit they're all about the function over form. Cutting-edge specs and class-leading optics are all well and good, but sometimes we're just about rocking a look, y'feel it? So feast your minces on the Lumix DMC-FP8, with its sliding design, light-up buttons and more colours than Brüno's wardrobe.
The 12.1-megapixel FP8's aluminium frame comes decked in silver, black, red, pink, violet, green, blue or gold. It's a mere 2cm thick with no protruding lens. It's also quick, with Panasonic claiming industry-fastest autofocus and 0.006-second shutter lag.
Despite its svelte form, the FP8 includes a worthy 4.6x optical zoom lens from Leica, widening out to 28mm, equivalent to a 35mm camera. It features Panasonic's new power OIS (optical image stabilisation) system to deal with camera shake from handheld snapping, and shoots 1,280x720-pixel high-definition video with YouTube upload.
