January 31, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Those who were lured by the show put up by Panasonic at the CES venue cannot afford to forget the five point-and-shoot cams that were unveiled at the show. Part of the Lumix product line, the rigs had got a lot of acclaim at Las Vegas earlier this month.

Now, the company has updated their shop information by pricing these cute devices. That means you need not wait any longer to get your hands on them.

Panasonic has attached cheaper tags on them, with SZ7 being the most expensive among the five. It costs you $200 while its bro SZ1 comes with a price tag of $180.

The $20 difference comes since the video recording capabilities differ between the models. SZ1 has 720p video recording while SZ7 can record high quality videos at 1080i. Both the models have a 25-250 mm equivalent lens.

Coming to the remaining models, the price tags actually come down considerably. FH8 costs $150, looking for the middle range market. FH6 will do it for $130. Both of the models have a 24-120 mm equivalent lens.

But the difference comes in the sensor capacity and the change in video recording capability. FH6 is capable of recording video in older Motion JPEG and have a 14.1 megapixel sensor only.

Though both the devices have a wide f2.5 aperture, FH8 spots a more efficient MPEG4 video recording. It also sports a dedicated video recording button and a 16.1 megapixel sensor.

The S2 is the cheaper one of the lot with just $110 as its price tag. It packs a 14.1 megapixel sensor with a 28-112mm equivalent lens.

It also allows users to capture live moments of their life in 720p video. Well, that’s about the price tags and Panasonic plans to start shipping in March.
