Talk about ending the week with a bang. HP on Friday announced five point-and-shoot digital cameras and three camcorders, all eight of which are aimed at the mainstream crowd and priced no higher than $199. What's most remarkable about this is that half the new models sport a touchscreen display.
Of particular interest are the V5061u and V5560u camcorders. Both come with 3-inch touchscreen LCD displays and are some of the least expensive touch-enabled camcorders around capable of shooting in 1080p. The V5560 adds 5X optical zoom to the mix and runs $199, while the V5061u is priced at $169.
On the point-and-shoot front, the CW450t ($109) and PW460t ($149) boast 2.7-inch and 3-inch touchscreen displays, respectively, along with a newly designed touch interface for viewing photos with a swipe of a finger. Both also boast 4X optical zoom and support up to 32GB SD/SDHC memory.
