True to their word, Panasonic has listed the price point of their Lumix DMC-FH7 digital camera which we looked at last month, which makes perfect sense since said shooter is tipped to arrive early next month for $179.99. There isn’t much choice at all when it comes to colors – after all, it will just be black which does seem as though it means business, sporting an intuitive 3″ Smart Touch Screen display that makes its host of features and functions easily accessible instead of just relying on physical buttons to get the job done.


Let us take a closer look at its Smart Touch Screen that allows you to access various functions including Touch Auto Focus (AF), Touch Zoom, Touch Shutter and Intelligent Scene Selector through a simple touch. There is also a trio of modes that lets you access creative control without missing a beat – where you can proceed to edit your photos on the digital camera there and then, without having to transfer the images over to a computer prior. The modes will comprise of Beauty Retouch – allows users to retouch faces;  Esthetic – creates effects on faces such as clearing skin texture and whitening teeth and Makeup – gives color options such as foundation, eye-shadow or coloring for the lips and cheeks.  

With its Leica DC lens, you will be on the receiving end of an impressive 4x optical zoom, High Definition video recording-capabilities which will make short work of 1280 x 720p memories at a smooth 24 fps, and Panasonic’s iA technology enable one to shoot photos and videos intuitively without requiring a rocket science degree. So what are you waiting for, get going! [Press Release]
