Worst Service Center

Camera guy, B&H Photo
15 October 2014
  • Excerpt: 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...

Lumix kit not worth it

Robert Harris, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Camera is great. Extra pack isn't worth the additional cost. As example, the tripod sent can be purchased on the net for approx $8.00.

Does not meet the hype, Aviod it completely

J. J. Lawrence "JL13", Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I know this is long-winded, but please bear with me... April 30, 2014 Although I have a fair amount of experience with 35mm SLR photography, this is my first "non-pocket" digital camera. After reading a lot of the reviews on Amazon and other places on the web, as well as watching too many You Tube videos, I came to the conclusion that the FZ70 would be a good, affordable replacement for my aging 35mm Cannon SLR. Now I'm not sure I read and watched enough.

Get the basics right first!!

SongFool, B&H Photo
18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Won't Focus

A Major Mistake by Panasonic

Larry, B&H Photo
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Panasonic provides this sophisticated camera with an incredible zoom range but, for some dumb reason, doesn't include provisions for a remote shutter release. Really? The designers and developers of this camera must, one, stay buried in their back rooms and, two, not be photographers. With the zoom cranked out to 60 power and the camera mounted on a tripod, a remote shutter release is a necessity! Oh well, perhaps someone else will do it right....? I hope.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

pathetic image quality without flash in indoor lighting

Sharad Gupta, amazon.in
14 October 2014
  • Summary: Pouch is too small and impractical. Camera's low light performance is extremely bad. I was unable to get a sharp photo in the evening and even under the indoor light.the images are too noisy even at iso400 with flash.Camera hunted for focus with zoom in low light.
