The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 is a point-and-shoot digital camera designed to be as easy and intuitive to use as possible. This is nearly identical to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25, but includes Touch-control Shooting mode that allows a subject to be selected for auto-focus without releasing the shutter right away.
