Panasonic Lumix FH27

The Panasonic FH27 is a touchscreen version of the FH25, which is to say that it's a slightly flashier version of an especially well-rounded point-and-shoot: 16 megapixels, 8x optical zoom, 720p HD video, and a 3-inch display. It replaces last yea...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

Panasonic's popular and very good LX5 gets a much-needed facelift in the LX7, which features the same 24-90mm range but a faster f1.4-2.3 aperture. This bests Samsung's new EX2f on the long end and ties it for the fastest aperture found in a compa...

A bargain, the S2 includes optical image stabilization, a 4x zoom, 720p HD video, and a 14.1 megapixel sensor for a cool $100. Don't expect wonders from this little automatic camera, but the price in itself might just qualify as one.
