What are the differences between the Panasonic Lumix FH20 and the FH22?
FH20/FH22 are the same with the exception of touch screen which is larger at 3" rather than 2.7". The touch screen is visibly much nicer and after getting used to the touch properties the screen really helps the user use all the options available easily, and much more visible for us older folks. Of course the younger crowd would automatically love the touch screen. There is no substitute for time using and experimenting with the options to enjoy the benefits. While learning you can just use IA (Intelligent Auto) or for a fast want to take picture leave on IA before you turn off and when you turn on your ready to go. Use at least a class 6 sdhc card and 10 would be better, for faster, smoother performance.
I'm seeing that the only difference is the FH22 has a 3" touch screen LCD compared to the 2.7 non touch LCD screen on the FH20. Hope this helps. It's about a $50 difference.
I was wondering the same thing, and I found this: "Series name and product number vary depending on the sales area (DMC-FH22 or DMC-FS33, DMC-FH20 or DMC-FS30).
Product design varies depending on the sales area."
I am thinking this means that they are one and the same.
