Panasonic announces Lumix Club-A cloud-based service that allows consumers to upload photos taken with the Lumix DMC-FX90

Panasonic today announced the launch of Lumix Club, a cloud-based service that is accessible via a smartphone and a computer browser that allows consumers to upload photos taken with the Lumix DMC-FX90 to the following social networks: Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or YouTube. Photos can even be shared with these sites simultaneously, making it easy and quick. Additionally, once a Lumix Club account is acquired, Panasonic will also provide a free, dedicated application called Lumix Link, which will be compatible with iPhone and Android OS smartphones, thus consumers can instantly share photos by connecting the Lumix FX90 just once to their compatible smartphone and then using the carrier network to share photos online. After the initial set-up, sharing photos will be as simple as using the Lumix Link application on the smartphone.

Using the Lumix Link application, users can enter and store all their social network account information and will not have to log-in to individual sites after the initial set-up. At home, users can directly upload the images to the social networks via the access point of a home router or a wireless connection. To make accessing Wi-Fi even easier, the Lumix DMC-FX90 has a convenient dedicated Wi-Fi button that when pressed, directly opens a Wi-Fi Connection mode outside home and gets WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) connection at home. The Wi-Fi module is located on the opposite side of the grip so as not to interfere with the connection signal.
