Best cameras with touchscreens

We round up some of the best touchscreen digital cameras on the Australian market

Touchscreens are becoming more prevalent in digital cameras on the Australian marketplace as they offer a new way to interact with menu systems and in some cases direct camera functions (such as the shutter).

The first cameras on the market to use a touchscreen were a little hit and miss, but over the last year the technology has improved and the user experience has gotten better. Panasonic's touchscreen cameras, for example, allow you to control the focus point in your shots simply by tapping anywhere on the screen. If you want, you can also tap the screen to take the picture, rather than pressing down on the shutter.

In this roundup we've gathered all the touchscreen cameras we've reviewed over the last year so that you can see what's available and how each camera's quality and features compare. There are models from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony.

Samsung ST600

The Samsung ST600 is a two-screen digital camera that's perfect for self-portraits. Its overall image quality is more than adequate for posting on social media sites and even for printing at relatively large sizes, but it does suffer from some imperfections. We're not fans of the camera's touchscreen and its usability could be better. Overall it's not a bad little compact camera at all.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
