Re: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX580 Touch-Screen Digital Camera

Panasonic's newly announced higher-end cameras are bringing touch-screen, wide-angle and advanced processing to the table. If the FX series is out of your wallet's reach, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25 still packs in a significant amount of features, like a 3-inch LCD screen and a wealth of Scene modes.
