Default New Lumix LC50 and LC70?

Panasonic Bob, how do the new Lumix LC50 and LC70 differ from the old (1 year?) LC33 and LC43 apart from model numbers that look more like Canon model numbers? I have a Lumix LC33.

Regards,
Russell

I have samples of both and for "pocket" cameras I'm impressed. Took an early sample to NYC over the Xmas holidays and shot about 200 photos. Had several printed (at Costco) to 11 x14 and all who saw them were generally equally impressed.

Compared to the previous generation these are a more rounded case. They fin in the shirt pocket very nicely and should do very well as a family camera. They also add an "economy mode" that turns off the LCP panel just a few seconds after taking a picture.

Hi there,
I had recently bought a LC33. After studying the features, I think apart from the live histogram and 30fps moviemode, LC50 has lesser features than LC33. For eg: audio dubbing and audio playback to television.

As a digital still cam, the image quality on the LC50 and LC70 is pretty impressive. I have some 11 x14's I shot on the LC50 (3.2 MP). Even at ISO 200 they were crisp with no objectionable noise.
