The megapixel wars continue to heat up in the digital camera world

If there's one thing that we can always expect in the realm of digital cameras, it's the ever-increasing megapixel count. Panasonic and Casio are aiming to please those obsessed with high megapixel cameras with the Lumix DMC-FX100 and EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1200 respectively.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 features a 12.2MP image sensor and a 3.6x (28-100mm) zoom lens. As is the case with most new high-end digital cameras released today, the DMC-FX100 features onboard image stabilization.

Thanks to its Venus Engine III image processor, the DMC-FX100 provides a maximum ISO of 6400 and features a High-Speed Burst shooting mode which allows the camera to capture 8 images per second. The DMC-FX100 can also capture images in a widescreen 16:9 format in 1920x1080 and 1280x720 resolutions. The camera is also capable of capturing VGA and WVGA movies at 30FPS and WXGA movies at 15FPS.

Not to be outdone, Casio has a 12.1MP digital camera of its own. The Casio EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1200 features a 3x optical zoom lens, image stabilization and a 2.8" LCD screen. The EX-Z1200's onboard EXILIM Engine 2.0 image processor handles face detection and auto tracking to enable clear captures.

Panasonic and Casio haven't yet announced pricing or availability dates for the Lumix DMC-FX100 and EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1200.
