Panasonic today revealed pricing for its HD still and video cameras introduced at CES, including the 3MOS HD camcorders and FH-series point and shoots, among others. The 3MOS sensor-equipped HDC-HS900 will have a $1,400 price tag, the TM900 $1,100 and the SD800 $850. The three have the ability to record 1080p60 video and can create 3D videos when paired with an optional, $350 conversion lens.

The TM900 and HS900 get a manual control ring, a 20x zoom and a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD. While all can record onto SDXC/SDHC/SD memory cards, the TM900 has 32GB of built-in memory and the HS900 has a 220GB hard drive onboard.

As for the 1MOS 1080p camcorders, the HDC-TM90 and HDC-HS80 will cost the same $600, the HDC-SD90 $550, the HDC-TM80 $500, the HDC-SD80 $450, the HDC-TM40 $400 and the HDC-SD40 $350. Each of these has a wide-angle lens but the TM90 and SD90 alone can shoot 1080p60 video and can accommodate the optional 3D lens. The TM80 and HS80 have a 42X Intelligent Zoom function, while the TM40 and SD40 weigh just 0.39lbs, making them the lightest Panasonic camcorders. All have SDXC/SDHC/SD memory card slots, with the TM90, TM80 and TM50 getting 16GB of internal memory and the HS80 adding a 120GB hard drive.

The standard definition camcorders will cost $350, $270 and $250, respectively, for the SDR-H100, SDR-T70 and SDR-S70. The H100 carries an 80GB hard drive, the T70 has 4GB of flash memory built-in and all get SDXC card slots.

The eight new Lumix point-and-shoot cameras have also been priced, with all capable of recording video in HD, using optical image stabilization and shooting in Panasonic’s scene-detecting iA mode. The ultra-slim FP7 will cost $230 and the FP5 $200. A 4X optical zoom lens is retractable and the FP7 has a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD.

The FH27 and FH25, which share a 28mm wide angle lens, will cost $230 and $200, respectively. The former gets a three-inch touchscreen and 16.1-megapixel sensor and the latter has a 14.1-megapixel sensor.

The 16.1-megapixel FH5 will carry a $150 price, with the 14.1-megapixel FH2 priced at $140. Both get a 4X optical zoom and a new retractable lens.

The entry-level, 14.1-megapixel S3 and 12.1-megapixel S1 will cost $130 and $120, respectively, with either getting a 28mm wide-angle lens with 4X optical zoom.

All 13 camcorders and the VW-CLT1 3D conversion lens ship in March, as do the new Lumix cameras.
