It’s got a fold out screen now!

Look, fancy DSLRs may get all the attention, and smartphones have largely taken the place of cheaper point-and-shoot cameras for most people, but that’s doesn’t mean there still isn’t a purpose for dedicated budget cameras.

And thus, we have the Panasonic Lumix ZS70 (aka TZ90), a new point and shoot camera from Panasonic that bears a striking resemblance to its numerical predecessor, the the Lumix ZS60. When it comes to new features, the updated ZS70 offers a 20.3-megapixel sensor over the 18-megapixel shooter on last year’s model, and adds a flip-out touchscreen. Otherwise, it’s virtually identical to the older version, with the same 30x optical zoom, 4K video, and built-in Wi-Fi.

The Lumix ZS70 will be available for $449.99 when it launches in May.
