GPS tagging I can see some use for

But please please please, enough with the 3D gimmick. It adds nothing.

3D gimmick

Depending on the implementation quality, 3D is unlikely to add anything to serious photography. But "snaps" aren't serious photography and I suspect the majority of Lumix owners take more snaps than serious photos. 3D might be just the thing for those baby pictures.

It's different from 3D telly. A typical telly program takes half an hour or more and the silly goggles, restricted viewing angles and headaches start to grate after a while. A snap might be enjoyed in less than 30 seconds before being passed around. I think that makes a difference and Panasonic might be on to something.

Full HD

It's a shame that they've used the "Full HD" label for 1080i. I much prefer 720p over 1080i, and what label are they going to use when they get 1080p?

GPS tagging is not new

The Sony HX5V I've had for over a year has GPS tagging. A great feature that also adds the compass point so you know the shot direction. Most good photo software now responds to geo-tagging, so it's no longer regarded as a new feature.

PS - the HX5V also a fine camera with a terrific 10:1 zoom glass lens.
