yeh, I did the same thing in the store. I agree, just awful. With the popularity of the touchscreen phones, I think this may be a permanent feature until things like gesturing, voice recognition or whatever else in the future replaces it. A difference between a phone touch screen, is the camcorder touchscreen is hanging on the side vs. the stable brick-like phone.
Also, when you use the camcorders outside, you have to put on an LCD hood or you can't see anything. It seems that would be awkward with a touchscreen, especially with the LCD hoods that cover all sides. You wouldn't even be able to put your fingers in there.
