Panasonic is beefing up its Lumix FS-series today with the introduction of two new shooters. The 12.1 megapixel DMC-FS15 with 29mm wide-angle 5x zoom lens with Mega OIS (optical image stabilization), intelligent ISO and exposure, face detection, and AF tracking to lock onto moving subjects. A dedicated iA button on the top of the camera allows for quick access to the Intelligent Auto Mode (iA) without getting lost in the menu. The 10.1 megapixel DMC-FS7 dials the zoom back to 4x and loses the auto exposure and AF tracking. Both cameras feature the Venus Engine IV image processor, auto-adjusting LCD, and the ability to record WVGA (848 x 480) video at 30fps in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Expect both models to land in March -- the $200 FS15 in silver, black and blue or the $160 FS7 in the additional colors of pink and green.

Update: While Panny doesn't include them on its site, dpreview lists a new DMC-FS6 (like the FS7 only with 8.1 megapixel sensor) and budget-minded 8.1 megapixel DMC-LS85 with Mega OIS and AA battery power source.
