How about a pocket cam that shoots 1280/720 today?

Panasonic (DMC-FX100) has today unveiled the latest addition to its popular and acclaimed Lumix range of digital cameras, boasting a world's first in its combination of 12.2 megapixels and a 28mm wideangle lens. Also able to capture HD video the dinky Panasonic certainly is bang up to date specification-wise, let's hope it's not a step too far in terms of pixel density.

With the FX100, you can shoot hi-definition 1920 x 1080 pixel photos that are ideal for full-screen viewing on a wide-screen (16:9) TV. Not only can you capture beautiful still images – these new models also record stunning wide aspect VGA (640 x 480) and WVGA (848 x 480) motion images at 30 frames per second. If this wasn’t enough, the FX100 can also record stunning wide-aspect HD (1280 x 720) motion images at 15 frames per second. This enables you to view them on a widescreen HDTV television perfectly.

There is already the Sanyo that shoots 720p at 30p, and the new Aiptek that uses H264, and the Canon TX1, that uses around 36mb/s. I think they need to do better than 15fps.
