The 10-megapixel Panasonic Lumix FX500 features a 25-125mm Leica 5x optical zoom and a touchscreen display, which at three inches, is big and bright enough to view in most lighting conditions and allows easy access to the camera's shooting modes. The camera has almost no lag time after pressing the shutter and--combined with its quick, accurate autofocus and exposure--it's very satisfying to shoot with and a solid choice for $400. PC World's Amber Bouman takes a look.
