Panasonic has shown off its new point and shoot camera today, the FX75, and it sounds like a very good option if you are in the market for a new camera. The camera packs a 14.1 megapixel sensor, a 24mm ultra wide-angle F2.2 lens with 5X optical zoom, and HD video recording capabilities. The HD video is recorded in the AVCHD Lite format though you also have the option to record in Motion JPEG, WVGA, and VGA. The FX75 also has intelligent picture processing options as well to help make the shots the best they can be. On the back you will find a 3 inch touchscreen that has a pretty nifty touch-to-focus function that I hope shows up on more cameras.

No word on pricing or availability was announced at this time but expect more information on that before long.
