We're just cleaning out the rest of our memory cards from CES, and we totally forgot this moment of unintentional hilarity while grabbing a quick hands-on with Panasonic's new point-and-shoot line -- that's the new touchscreen DMC-FP3, asking for the name of our baby. Sadly, we were not able to provide it with one, and it responded by continuing to have a somewhat wonky hybrid touchscreen-and-buttons control scheme. We're assuming some of the lag we saw had to do with an early software build -- we'll see if things are cleared up when this guy ships, since we're big fans of touch-to-focus. As for the rest, well, they're Lumix point-and-shoots -- they all seemed competent and sturdy, and we can't wait for the day when Panasonic hires a design team to clean up that straight-from-1983 all-caps interface. Check out the rest in the gallery!
