Panasonic announces Lumix FH7 ultracompact

The manufacturer's tiny wide-angle FH5 point-and-shoot gets a touch screen.


If the only thing stopping you from buying a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH5 was its lack of a touch screen, you're in luck. Along with the announcement of the considerably more interesting Lumix DMC-G3, Panasonic announced the FH7, a 16-megapixel ultracompact with a 3-inch touch screen.

The photo above spells out all its features for you, but if you want to read more about it, you can hit up Panasonic's global site (which is ridiculously better than the U.S. site).

No release date or pricing was announced, but since the FH5 is $150, I'd put the FH7 at $170.
