First DSLR with Face Detection

 

Panasonic has announced its second DSLR, the Lumix DMC-L10 with an interchangeable Leica lens.

The camera features a 10.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor, 2.5 inch live view rotating LCD, and Supersonic Wave Filter technology for dust protection. Powered by Panasonic's Venus Engine III, the camera is the first DSLR on the market to feature Face Detection, and the engine can detect up to 15 faces simultaneously.

Another first is the hybrid auto focus system. TTL phase difference detection is used when shooting through the viewfinder, while contrast AF is used when shooting using the live view screen.

However, the new contrast AF system is currently supported with two Leica lenses. One of them, the optically stabilized LEICA  D VARIO-ELMAR 14-50mm / F3.8-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S, ships with the camera.

The Lumix DMC-L10 will be available from October 2007. Its price has not yet been disclosed.
