Japan Gets Panasonic Lumix Disney Camera

Panasonic Japan announced [JP] a special Lumix camera yesterday, the LUMIX DMC-FP7D (where the “D” stands for Disney). Unlike many other cute special edition cameras from Japan, the design on this model is rather subtle.

Technically, the Disney camera is based on the LUMIX DMC-FP7, a point-and-shoot device with a 16MP CCD sensor, Motion JPEG video recording at 1,280×720/24fps, a touch control UI, and a 3.5-inch TFT display.

Panasonic also throws in Micky Mouse on/off screens, icons, and photo frames.

The Lumix Disney camera is scheduled to hit Japan on June 10 (for about $370). Ask specialized online stores like Rinkya or Flutterscape if you want one but don’t live in Japan.
