New touchscreen cameras

These nine cameras impressed us with their unique features (including unusual designs, wireless connectivity, and resilience against the elements) and their worthy touchscreens.

Samsung CL80

The Samsung CL80 is one of the first cameras to exhibit a near-unibody design created by means of the hydroforming process. This 14-megapixel camera offers a gigantic 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen that controls nearly all of its functions. It also packs a 7X optical zoom lens, dual optical/digital image stabilization, and 720p high-def video capture at 30 frames per second.

The CL80's gesture-based controls enable users to toggle between menu options by tilting the camera, to delete an image by drawing an X on the screen, or to rotate a photo by swiping in a circular motion. Aside from being fun to use, the CL80 has impressive Wi-Fi capabilities, Bluetooth 2.0 support, and direct-from-camera upload features for Facebook, Picasa, and YouTube.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
