Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 packs a long zoom and an attractive price tag, but omits some of the refinements found on pricier models.

60x zoom lens. 20mm wide-angle coverage. Good image detail at high ISOs. Speedy focus. Integrated EVF and hot shoe. Raw shooting support.

Rear LCD and EVF could be sharper. Very limited burst shooting. No EVF eye sensor. Lacks microphone input. No Wi-Fi. HD video limited to 1080i60 or 1080p30.

The FZ70 doesn't include Wi-Fi or a GPS. The former is integrated into just about every camera released today, and the latter is not uncommon on long zoom cameras that are likely to be utilized for travel. If transferring images on the go is a must,...

Panasonic debuts class-leading 60x zoom Lumix FZ70

 

One more reason to close your curtains, the 16-megapixel FZ70 features an f2.8-5.9 20-1200mm lens and rock-solid image stabilization to back it up.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 (also known as the FZ70) is a digital bridge camera with a 16.1 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor, FullHD video, Power OIS and a 20mm wide-angle lens that telescopes out to an unbelievable 1200mm. That's a 60x zoom and...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 is a very pleasant camera to use. It feels solid in your hands and responds well to commands. The zoom is fast without being too fast that you miss where you want to be. Focusing is super fast, and the start-up time is...

Panasonic FZ70 Review

 

Panasonic appears to have just lapped everyone in the superzoom camera race -- at least in terms of zoom range -- by offering a whopping 60x optical zoom with an equivalent range of 20 to 1,200mm in the just announced Panasonic FZ70. While that's not a...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70

 

Panasonic's bridge camera sacrifices performance for an absurd zoom.

If it seems like I'm a little tough on this camera, it's because it could have been so much more. Though the "bigger is better" mentality would lead you to believe that the lens on this camera was something to behold, it actually isn't. Despite that...

Panasonic Lumix FZ70 / FZ72

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ72, or FZ70 as it's known in North America, is a super-zoom camera with a 16.1 Megapixel compact sensor and a whopping 60x stabilised optical zoom. That's the longest zoom range currently available on a compact camera, so in a...

Massive 60x optical zoom ; Excellent Power O.I.S. stabilisation ; 20mm ultra-wide angle ; Raw mode ; 400 shot battery life ; 3 Programmable Fn buttons

Fixed LCD screen can't be flipped out ; No built-in GPS or Wifi ; Poor 3-frame burst shooting ; Stabilisation artifacts on movies at max zoom

The Panasonic Lumix FZ70 / FZ72 raises the bar once again for super-zooms with a massive 60x optical zoom. Panasonic has stuck with the same 24x zoom lens for several generations of its FZ range, so perhaps it's not surprising that they've leapfrogged...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 is fitted with the most powerful optical zoom built into a digital camera. Its 60X lens covers 20 to 1200mm. While other cameras offer a zoom this long, none has one so wide. This provides a very useful field-of-view for...

Good lens sharpness, Low optical distortion, Quick autofocus in good light, Fast shutter-lag, Quick and responsive, Awesome LCD visibility, Plenty of controls, Good ergonomics, Respectable battery-life

Noise visible at all ISO, Poor color accuracy, Very slow autofocus in low-light near telephoto, Self-timer resets, Modal EC control, Minuscule EVF

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 is a feature-rich ultra-zoom with the widest field-of-view and longest zoom of any fixed-lens camera. Its 60X optical zoom offers dependable image-stabilization and a previously unseen 20-1200mm equivalent range. This...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 Review

 

The 60x zoom runs all the way up to a 35 SLR equivalent of 1200mm but — note this! — it begins from a super wide 20mm equivalent. That means you can shoot close shots of sports players from the sidelines and then cover cramped interiors with the same...
