Lumix DMC-LS70


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70, announced at the end of January 2007, is a thick-bodied point-and-shoot with a 1/2.5-inch 7.2 megapixel CCD. This moderately-priced camera has a 3x optical zoom lens, 2-inch LCD screen, and optical image stabilization...

Excellent color performance ; Reproduced lots of fine detail (particularly for a budget camera) ; Simple, well-labeled and nicely laid-out controls that could only benefit from being larger in size ; Menus are well-organized, quick, and most carry a...

Poor handling of noise throughout ISO range ; Limited low light shooting capacity ; Slow operation ; Drastic decline in dynamic range beyond ISO 200 ; 2-inch 86k pixel LCD was obsolete 2 years ago ; E Zoom” is a largely absurd and pointless addition...

Pretty good camera especially for it's price


Well this camera is great for a budge shopper, scene modes can really help create a nice pictue but with a only a few cons it is still a good camera

Nice Cheap point and shoot


Taking this Camera on a 120 mile backpack trip and bought it as a decent camera that I wouldn't mind breaking. We will see how it fairs.

Its cheap and it's some what small, and it has stabilization! The pictures come out clean for the most part

It eats up the AA batteries, but so do most other cameras of this type. Its also not as sturdy as some other cameras in the same price range.

Product Specifications

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70 is a digital camera that features an Intelligent Image Stabilization system with MEGA O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO Control. It incorporates superb optical 3x zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm on a 35mm film camera) LUMIX DC VARIO lens. Having the exterior carefully redesigned, the DMC-LS70 offers higher grade profile while pursuing the compactness of the units. The DMC-LS70 incorporates the Intelligent Image Stabilization system. This system comprises two features - Mega O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO Control - that together make it easy to capture beautiful photos every time you shoot. Now recognized as a must-have feature for digital cameras, Mega O.I.S. compensates for the effects of hand-shake, making it possible to capture clear, crisp photos indoors, at night, or when taking macro close-ups - situations in which hand-shake is most likely to be a problem. Even Mega O.I.S., however, cannot suppress the motion blur caused by a subject moving as the photo is being snapped. That's where Intelligent ISO Control comes in. In this system, the camera's Venus Engine III image-processing engine detects whether the subject is moving and, as necessary, raises the ISO setting and shutter speed according to how fast the subject is moving and the light conditions. This happens automatically, so you can shoot without the bother of adjusting settings every time conditions change. Lumix and its powerful Intelligent Image Stabilization system do all the work automatically. You enjoy easy, trouble-free shooting in any situation and get the satisfaction that comes with capturing clear, beautiful images. The DMC-LS70 offers a range of features that enhance usability and add convenience. The Easy Zoom feature shifts the lens instantly to full 3x zoom power at the touch of a dedicated button. The new Quick Setting function lets you quickly and easily access and set the functions used most often. With the new Date Stamp function, you can simply stamp the date on photos or you can take advantage of two original Lumix features. When traveling, you can stamp the day of the trip on the photos you take. Or, if you have a baby, you can stamp his or her age in months on your photos. The stamped information appears on photos that you print yourself at home or have printed at a photo shop. The DMC-LS70 will surely be ideal tool for shooting beautiful pictures easily in any situations thanks to the incorporation of Intelligent Image Stabilization.
