Touchscreens seem to be showing up everywhere these days and the realm of digital cameras is no exception. The Panasonic Lumix Fx500 isn’t the first digital camera to feature a touchscreen display and it most certainly won’t be the last. It’s probably only a matter of time before we get multi-touch with haptic feedback or something too.
Featuring a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, the FX500 comes with a 10.1 megapixel sensor, 25mm ultra wide angel Leica DC lens, intelligent ISO, and face recognition. This is nearly identical to the FX35, except that this camera has a touchscreen interface. Whoop-dee-doo! Rounding out the specs are 5x optical zoom, 720p HD video recording, and the ability to take 16:9 widescreen stills.
Look for this touchy-feely camera to hit stores this May with an asking price of $399.95.
