introduced Monday the next addition to its pocket video camera line -- the PlayTouch, featuring a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen.

The PlayTouch also includes FullHD 1080p video recording, new on-camera editing and a Share Button to simplify sending files to social-networking sites.

Other features include built-in image stabilization, an LCD glare shield and an external microphone jack.

The camcorder also carries over the built-in USB arm to simplify transferring files and changing the unit's battery.

The Share Button lets consumers tag videos and pictures directly on the camera for automatic upload to popular social-networking sites once they connect the camera to the computer.

The PlayTouch also includes the ability to capture 5-megapixel HD still pictures; Smart face-tracking technology; an external stereo microphone jack; SD cart supporting up to 32GB cards; HDMI output; four capture effects, including B&W, sepia, high saturation, and a 1970s film look; and compatibility with PC and Mac iLife products.
