Panasonic has announced its first camera to include built-in Wi-Fi, called the Lumix DMC-TZ50. As the model name hints, the TZ50 is basically the DMC-TZ5 with Wi-Fi. Both are 9-megapixel cameras with optically stabilized 10x optical, 28-280mm equivalent lenses, and can record video at up to 1,280x720 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second. They both also include Panasonic's Advanced Intelligent Auto features, which include Intelligent Exposure, which adjusts brightness after a picture is taken; Digital Red-eye Correction to remove red eye after the image is captured; Intelligent ISO, which determines if a subject is moving and, if so, boosts the camera's sensitivity to allow a faster shutter speed so you can freeze the action; Intelligent Scene Selector, which analyzes what's in frame and tries to choose the best scene mode for the given subject; Face Detection, so the camera can see up to 15 faces and use them to set focus and exposure; and Continuous AF, which can lock on your subject and follow it as it moves through the frame.
