Panasonic Lumix 16.1 MP Digital Camera With 60X Super Long Zoom And Dobly Digital Sound, Model DMCFZ70K

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70: See and Hear What You've Been Missing
Life is more than a single moment captured in time. Panasonic understands that and delivers advanced multimedia technology in the LUMIX DMC-FZ70. Bring the action in super close with a 60X optical zoom. Discover the optical performance of the DMC-FZ70 with an amazing 20mm wide-angle to 1200mm (60X) long zoom, making it a category class leader*. Video and photos appear bright in low-lit conditions with the F2.8-5.9 lens. Combined with optical image stabilization, both long zoom photos and videos are sharp and blur free. Experience Full 1080/60i HD Panasonic Video recording with auto focus from the DMC-FZ70. Achieve crystal clear audio utilizing a unique microphone that eliminates ambient noise and wind sound with the stunning clarity of Dolby® Digital. This amazing microphone even zooms with the camera to precisely zero in on the audio coming from your subject.

Features:

  • Super Long Zoom Lens From 20mm Ultra Wide-Angle To 60x Optical Zoom
    At 60X optical zoom (20mm-1200mm), the DMC-FZ70 lens is the widest and longest zoom in its class*. Discover stunning versatility from ultra-wide 20mm to an incredible 1200mm range making it possible to capture dynamic landscapes, wildlife, and almost any scene when traveling. At 20mm the lens captures nearly 140% wider angle of view compared with a 24mm lens. Capture a little extra zoom with Intelligent Resolution technology. The DMC-FZ70 can extend the zoom ratio up to 120X equivalent while maintaining superior picture quality. An optional optical lens adapter can even further extend the FZ70 range.
  • Amazingly Clear Zoom Microphone with Dolby® Digital Audio Quality
    Recording video with the DMC-FZ70 is easy, but what's really amazing is the camera's ability to capture crisp, clear audio. The videos are accompanied by realistic Dolby® Digital Stereo* Creator. Sound quality is further improved with the DMC-FZ70 and the newly developed Wind Shield Zoom Microphone** that minimizes wind noise by approximately 70% compared to prior models. Externally, the sealed structure prevents wind from hitting the microphone directly, while the draft structure suppresses the retention of air internally. These combined with the mics ability to audio zoom in combination with the optical zoom results in sound that is clear and comfortable to listen to even if it was recorded on a windy day.
  • Create Stunning Movies With Full HD Video Recording
    The DMC-FZ70 records Full-HD 1920 x 1080 videos in both AVCHD and MP4 format. A separate button on the top of the camera lets you instantly start recording videos while simultaneously shooting a photo without changing settings. The Creative Video Mode empowers you to adjust the shutter speed and aperture when shooting videos to get the creative effect you are looking for.
  • Power Optical Image Stabilization with Active Mode Delivers Sharp, Clear Images
    The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively suppresses hand-shake that causes blurred photos. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected and compensated for to produce sharp, clear images. POWER O.I.S. delivers beautiful images even in low light, or shooting handheld at 1200mm super telephoto. The Active Mode in the DMC-FZ70 performs beautifully when recording wide-angle video at such as shooting while walking. The resulting videos are stable and clear.
  • Be Inspired With In Camera Creative Controls and Creative Retouch
    Creative Control and Creative Retouch modes feature 15 filter effects – 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. The Creative Control mode lets you shoot with a filter while checking how it looks on the picture. Certain filters can be used for video recording as well. The Creative Retouch mode lets you apply a filter on a picture, in camera, even after shooting.
  • Expand Your Vision With Creative Panoramic Effects
    With the Creative Panorama function, you can shoot a horizontal/vertical panoramic image with consecutive shots by overlaying the previous picture. The multiple images are stitched together in the camera to create one single-wide image capturing your scene. After you've captured your image, you can get creative with one of these panoramic filter effects – Retro, Expressive, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Old Days, Cross Process and One Point Color.
  • Never Miss A Shot Even With Action Photography
    The DMC-FZ70 takes your photography to the next level with blazing fast speeds of up to 5 fames per second (fps) AF or 2fps with continuous AF Tracking, keeping your subject in focus even while it moves. An even faster 3 frame burst at 9 fps helps lock in those fast moving, once in a lifetime moments.
  • Amazing Low Light 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
    Combine the DMC-FZ70's bright F2.8-5.9 lens with the new 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and you've got a camera that delivers phenomenal image quality in high-sensitivity shooting scenes. The sensor cuts noise by 10-15% and dramatically improves image quality vs. previous models. Together with the Venus Engine, this superb sensor elevates the response, sensitivity, and image quality of the DMC-FZ70 to even higher levels.
  • Shoot Impressive Pictures With iA (Intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode
    For beginners, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode helps you make beautiful pictures with a variety of shooting-assist functions. The camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots and capture moments in both photo and video recording. The iA Plus mode lets you adjust background focus, exposure compensation, and white balance for even more flexible control by simply moving the slider.

    I have owned several Panasonic cameras and they all have met my expectations, including this one. I am using this camera for real estate and nature photography. It takes great interior photos that I convert to virtual tours. For the nature photography the zoom lens works great for that. I am amazed that this gives me that capability all in one camera. The other thing that I find is that I do not have to do a lot of PhotoShoping to enhance the pictures, as the quality of the original photo is very good. Unlike a couple of other reviews, I thoroughly checked out this camera before my purchase to make sure it had and did the things that I needed and expected it to do, and I am totally happy with my purchase of this camera and the quality of the pictures. I found it easy to learn some of the new features and find that it is going to be great to incorporate into one of my hobbies, graphic art.

    Well - there's been a fan fare hasn't there? I rushed out and bought one. Then the fun started - couldn't buy the accesories, MACRO enhancer DMW-LC55 and Lens adaptor DMW-LC55. Nasty shock. Then I found a major design flaw - the LED screen does not hinge up or down thereby eliminating many of those macro shots taken from side on. Nor could I use a tripod to photograph the moon, it would take an expert contortionist to achieve that. I didn't check this feauture because I never thought it would be excluded from a camera of this type. I wouldn't have bought it had I known and besides all this, other than the 60X zoom (Grainy), this is an altogether unremarkable camera. Forget the hype and fanfare - it is a LEMON!

            I know this sounds strange, but this camera was the one I used to create such gorgeous pictures that it started me on my way to becoming a professional nature photographer. So easy to learn on, crisp, colorful, amazing shots were generated by this camera. Incredible micro close up and zoom images. I was even able to get great shots of the blood moon!!! People seeing my shots were asking me what kind of camera I used thinking it was some mega/multi lense thousand dollar camera. Others requests for copies of my pics was amazing to me. Okay, you can read the specs here on line, these comments come straight from someone who experiences using this awesome camera.

                This is a very good camera for not being a DSLR. I was tired of carrying all the extra lenses and large bag I needed for DSLR. This is a great camera for vacations. The zoom is very good, and the auto takes very good pictures. Many modes and scene modes to experiment with. Not a DSLR but a great sub for one. Picture quality is excellent.

                  I was a Nikon man for 45 years. Just before the last Christmas, I bought a Nikon Coolpix L830 but I couldn't hold it still due to the weight of camera with 4 AA batteries and no viewfinder. I returne it and bought a LUMIX DMC-FZ70. With the viewfinder I can hold it steady. (Battery life is much longer using viewfinder.) I shoot almost every day and am trying all the features it gives. Lots of fun! This has given me a fun and joy to my retired life. Thank you, Panasonic.

                    This camera's zoom has exceeded my expectations. While the auto focus might not be what you are needing... and it could use a simpler interface.... It is by all means the best camera I have ever owned (Nikon d300 is now on shelf). I shoot wildlfe photos and this thing is so portable... I used to have to carry a bag that weighed 10lbs full of 3grand in lenses to have what I get from this.. which goes into my edc bag and give me better zoom.

                        I purchased this camera for my trip to Italy and I absolutely love it! The zoom on this thing is fantastic. I was able to shoot from far away and the pictures still came out clear. It is super easy to use and the in camera creative controls allowed me to retouch the pictures right on my camera.

                          Loved the zoom on this. Saw it in NYC and wanted to bite but the price was too high. I bought it once I found a promo because it takes amazing pics. Especially panorama

                          Know what features you want before purchase. Zoom

                              I researched super-zoom cameras extensively. I am very happy with an earlier DMC-FZ150 with a 24X zoom. When a sale on a refurb FZ70 came along I bought it just for the long 60X zoom and the wide 20mm end. If I could have only one bridge camera, I would want a tilting LCD (though my FZ150 malfunctions), and a mic input. For the price it can be a fun camera.

                                I LOVE THE LIGHTWEIGHTNESS OF THIS CAMERA, so much lighter than my canon with additional lenses. The only problem I have is I can't take pictures on a tripod with a plug-in shutter and I am not the steadiest hand, especially at 60x magnification. I really like the lowlight ability, and all the other features.

                                    Either it is stolen or lost, but trying to replace the battery charger for this camera has been far too hard! Not available every where I ask. I like the zoom and resolution; better than my older model Panasonic Lumix. Not sure if operator error, but I liked the features of my old Lumix (Z28?) better.
