Panasonic launches Lumix Phone P-05C with optical stabilization

08 July, 2011

A new cameraphone legend is born as today Panasonic launches its Lumix Phone P-05C. The 13 megapixel handset is the world's first to feature optical image stabilization, proudly carrying the MEGA O.I.S. branding right next to its lens.

The 27mm wide angle lens of the Lumix Phone P-05C is also as wide as it gets on a mobile phone, allowing you to fit more in the frame. Video enthusiasts will also appreciate the 1080p video recording that the latest Panasonic feature phone offers.

Other photography features that the Lumix Phone P-05 borrows from its Panasonic digicam cousins include the iAuto mode for automatic scene recognition with 11 presets and burst mode, which captures 8 consecutive frames and lets you choose one of them.

The Lumix Phone P-05C is built around a 3.3" LCD screen of unconfirmed resolution (though knowing Japan phones FWVGA seems like a safe bet).

Available in white, black and magenta colors, the Lumix Phone P-05C is hitting the Japanese NTT DoCoMo network today. There's no saying if Panasonic plans on bringing an European or American version, though.
