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.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX75

Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-FX75 has an intuitive touchscreen and can take clear images for the most part. However, its images do look very muddy when viewed at their full size and they also suffer from noise if you use a high ISO. We like the wide 24mm lens, but it does suffer from a lot of distortion. Perhaps the best aspects of this camera are its macro mode and very easy touchscreen focusing function.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
