The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 Digital Camera is a bridge-style point-and-shoot digital camera that features a 16.1 megapixel High Sensitivity BSI MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video with notable low-light quality. The combination of the processor and sensor enable a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-3200, which can be further expanded to ISO 6400. The processor also affords a wealth of speed to the camera, including the ability to record up to 9 fps in a 3-shot burst, 5 fps with one-shot AF, or 2 fps with continuous AF.

The built-in Lumix DC Vario 60x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 20-1200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives for working in almost any shooting situation. Benefitting this extensive zoom range is POWER O.I.S., which works to minimize the appearance of camera shake when working with greater zoom magnifications and under low-light conditions. This image stabilization system also features an Active Mode that is well-suited to creating steady HD movies by countering the appearance of camera shake in a variety of directions.

Full HD 1080i video at 60 fps is supported in the high quality AVCHD codec and greatly benefits from the inclusion of a Windshield Zoom Microphone and Dolby Digital audio quality. The built-in stereo microphone works to significantly reduce wind noise in order to provide clearer overall audio quality. Its zoom design is also well-paired to the zoom lens to help achieve natural sounding recordings.

For image monitoring and playback, both a 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor and a 0.20" 202k-dot electronic viewfinder are available as bright, clear means for viewing. Also extending the functionality of the FZ70 is a hot shoe to facilitate the use of an external flash and an HDMI port for linking the camera to an HDTV for vivid image playback. A host of creative effects are available too, for enhancing the aesthetic appearance of both still images and movies in-camera.

Lumix DC Vario 60x Optical Zoom Lens
A tremendously long-reaching Lumix DC Vario 60x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 20-1200mm, covering wide-angle to super telephoto lengths to suit shooting from nearly any vantage point. Extending the magnification of this lens even further is Intelligent Resolution technology, which effectively renders the zoom ratio to 120x with minimal image degradation. The maximum f/2.8-5.9 aperture benefits working in low-light conditions at the wide end of the zoom range and also contributes to greater control over focus placement.

The lens construction integrates six aspherical elements, with nine aspherical surfaces, and three extra-low dispersion elements to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness and clarity.
16.1MP High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
A 16.1 megapixel 1/2.3" High Sensitivity MOS sensor utilizes Back Side Illuminated technology to render imagery clearly and well-detailed with notable low-light quality. The sensor works in conjunction with the Venus Engine image processor to minimize visible noise and provide a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-3200, which can be further extended to ISO 6400 when working in High Sensitivity mode. The image processor also affords a wealth of speed and performance throughout the camera system including a fast start-up time of 0.9 sec. and full-resolution continuous shooting rates up to 9 fps (in a 3 frame burst), 5 fps with single-shot AF, or 2 fps with continuous AF.
Full HD Video with Dolby Digital Audio
Full HD 1080i video recording at 60 fps is supported in the high quality AVCHD codec for fluid, well-detailed movies and 1080p video at 30 fps is also available in the Internet-friendly MP4 format. A dedicated movie record button allows for a seamless transition into the recording mode and Creative Video Mode settings offer greater control over the appearance of movies by allowing for the adjustment of shutter speed and aperture settings during recording.

Also contributing to effective movies is the use of Dolby Digital Stereo Creator and the inclusion of a Windshield Zoom Microphone, which is able to substantially reduce the amount of wind in audio recordings to realize notably clear sound with videos. The sealed structure of the microphone works to prevent wind from reaching the microphone directly and the draft structure suppresses the retention of air internally in order to realize unaffected sound quality. Additionally, the microphone has audio zoom capabilities to match the lens' zoom in order to provide a realistic sound quality when recording videos.
POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode
POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) works to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting with longer shutter speeds or greater zoom magnifications in order to realize stable, sharp, and clear imagery. This stabilization system also features Active Mode, which benefits video recording by accounting for different directions of movement in order to steadier movie recordings, even while walking or moving when recording.
Camera Design
The design of this bridge camera incorporates both a 3.0" 460k-dot rear LCD monitor with anti-reflective coating and a 0.20" 202k-dot electronic viewfinder for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation. The EVF is a convenient means for eye-level viewing, which is especially useful in bright lighting, and also provides an additional point of contact between you and the camera to further aid in stabilizing shots when working with greater zoom magnifications or when shooting in low-light conditions. A large ergonomic grip is also integrated into the FZ70's design to further add a measure of stability when shooting.

Additionally, a hot shoe is incorporated into the body to support the use of an optional external flash for greater illumination and flash control beyond that of the built-in pop-up flash.
Other Camera Features
  • iA (Intelligent Auto) mode automatically sets all camera exposure settings to clearly render the scene at hand, allowing you to simply compose and shoot. iA Plus Mode allows for even greater control through adjustment of background focus, exposure compensation, and white balance settings.
  • In-camera HDR works to extend the visible dynamic range of image by recording several images at once with varying exposure settings and then overlaying them into a single image to garner greater shadow and highlight detail.
  • Creative Control provides 15 different filter effects for modifying the appearance of your images: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Star Filter, and One Point Color. Many of these filters can be used during video recording and, additionally, these filters can be applied to images after shooting by using the Creative Retouch mode.
  • Creative Panorama mode automatically stitches together multiple images in order to realize one wide-spanning horizontal or vertical image. A range of filter effects can also be applied to panoramic images, including Retro, Expressive, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Old Days, Cross Process, and One Point Color.
  • RAW file recording renders image files with greater room for post-processing adjustment compared to the standard JPEG file type.
  • An HDMI port is integrated into the camera's design to allow for direct playback of photos and movies to an HDTV.
  • Language support: English and Spanish.

    After having the camera for a month, I need to update my review. Many good features are said of this camera, particularly of the zoom, which can actually go to 520X in extreme digital mode. Easy to use camera in the Auto mode, but can be a bit tricky setting the settings in the M mode. Creative control is nice for various effects, but no variable parameter contols. Go to Lightroom or Photoshop for the final shutter snap. Video is very good and can get the maximum time of 29 minutes 59 seconds. I recommend using 1920 AVCHD format, Now on the downside, and Panasonic should have seen this. No mic input, no ability to use wireless remote shutter control, no swivel out LCD panel, and using an external power adapter, the lid will not close, and no access to change batter or SD card while monted on a tripod or stabalizer. I made a DIY camera mount that works great

    I bought this camera as a backup for my Canon 60D when outdoors hiking and for adventures. I have an older model Panasonic and love it. I even use it for my underwater photography, so I was expecting a bit more after all of the hype. However, Panasonic didn't even get the basics right on this one. The only setting that gets clear, focused pictures right is the "AI" setting. None of the others can zoom and focus in a decent amount of time. That's pretty basic in my book, focusing on each setting. The other disappointment is the new software. This camera shoots raw, and creates a proprietary file that not even Lightroom can read, so you must use their software, only problem is, it isn't compatible with Windows 7. I use both Mac and a PC, and the software isn't compatible with Mac, and after loading on the PC creates an ongoing cycle that doesn't allow you to actually access the program! And yes, I have deleted it and reinstalled it twice just to be sure it was installing properly. So, I now have HDR images taken at Yellowstone and Grand Tetons that I cannot even access. This is such a disappointment! Wait until they get all of this right before purchasing. They have some real work to do!!

        The wide to super-zoom lens (20-1200) capability is great for travel with landscape and some wildlife photography.The shutter speed is very slow, even blurry when capturing a walk-by person in a shot about 15 feet away.Image quality is dramatically reduced in low light and long reach of zoom. I would recommend this only as a fun camera due to the super-zoom capability and video. As it is not at all could replace even your secondary SLR.

            First impression is that I'm glad I bought this even though I did not "need" it, 9 year old FZ20 serves me well. No dislikes after limited use.60x zoom is main reason for purchase and seems great. Best surprise so far is autofocus to macro without having to select it.Uses will be macro, wildlife & racecars. Looking forward to finding more new features.

                When I stepped into digital cameras, I found a nice easy Panasonic FZ5 which made me love it. Then I went higher to FZ60 and love it still. What a camera! Now I'm looking at the FZ70 with love, only for the zoom power.

                I have had all the Canon super zooms since the SX10, the last being the SX50, I will say this Lumix is better. The price makes it much better!!. This camera will fit most everyone's needs and even surpass your wants/needs. I used to shoot SLR's exclusively but now I find these bridge cameras suffice at much lower over all investment. The ultra zoom is also far more fun!!

                  I will use the DMC-FZ70 as a backup to my Canon DSLR. the great things about this camera is the telephoto reach with the 20-1200 mm lense and many of the special features and the 16.1 mp So far I can't come p with anything negative

                    I love taking pictures with my new camera. It is not to heavy, is easy to use & has great range. The buttons are all conveniently located & make sense with their placement. I haven't found anything that I don't like about this camera.

                    I just bought this camera to replace a 7 year old point and shoot camera. Took the new camera with me to Peru and shot some pretty great photos. It has a terrific zoom with great clarity. Lots of bells and whistles (so many it's a bit overwhelming). I personally like the heft (it's not weighty) camera that makes for easy handling.

                          The camera works well however the software does not work and the Service center is the worst. The service center has actually lied to me on more than one occasion and refuses to allow me to talk to a supervisor. I would NEVER buy a Panasonic product again...

                            I love this Lumix. I bought is for the zoom capabilities, digital images, and ability to use to filters (in particular a IR filter). When zoomed in, you do have to hold the camera very, very still (or use a tripod). As with other earlier models, this camera is very easy to use. My biggest complaint is that I have three Panasonic Lumix cameras and each one has a different battery that uses a different recharger. Really? Can't Panasonic make one battery or even one charger? As with all my Lumix cameras, the battery life is great and very long.

                                I really missed the viewfinder on cameras but could not afford a $ camera just for the feature. Thankfully this camera has it and more; LCD display, autofocus, retouch, panoramic view, program modes, flash, and even a hot-shoe. The price was under $. I used it in daylight, lowlight, night shots with and without flash, motion shots, and multiple shots at once. I don't see anything wrong with it except its size which most of my friends and family said was big. This is for those people who appreciate the 35mm body as opposed to the boxie cameras that we see. Pound for pound its worth every penny. It is lighter than the "professional" cameras.

                                  Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 Digital Camera:

                                  I'm a total novice when it comes to photography but decided to upgrade from an Olympus point-and-shoot to the Panasonic Lumix. It takes fantastic photos, is so simple to use, and is very light-weight. So excited to finally be able to take photos that I can be proud of!
