If controlling your Panasonic LUMIX FX90 digital camera from your smartphone is something that you've longed for, today is your lucky day. Panasonic just released LUMIX Remote into the Play Store - an app to let you do just that.

The app connects to the FX90 over a Wi-Fi connection, and allows you to remote view the image on your camera's screen, remote shutter and zoom, and includes a self-shot mode for taking Facebook pics self-portraits.

The app is for Android 2.2+ devices, and requires that you perform a firmware upgrade on your camera before it will connect. While it only supports the FX90 for the time being, we suspect that other Panasonic LUMIX cameras will eventually gain support via firmware update as well.

    does it gives you manual control over exposure? like aperture and shutter speed?

      Nope. It's pretty basic so far as I can tell.

    I really like the Lumix cameras, and this makes them even more awesome.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing a better app for a better camera from their model like (i.e. the GH series).

      I guess we would need a cable for the GH series since there is no wifi. Maybe the Gh3?
