A great starter camera
2 weeks ago
Summary: In spite of my pros and cons, this camera has more plusses than minuses. It's a backup camera, but I still need to produce high-quality images, and overall printouts are very satisfactory. Moon images, in almost total darkness came out crisp, even without a tripod (I still recommend using one, but was curious.
Pros: shoots in both raw and jpeg beautiful colors 60x zoom is very good - even without a tripod great scene options easy to adjust exposure has both live view and a view finder
Cons: slow to recover not tack sharp for motion photos (birds flying) ordered a spare battery - very expensive has trouble locking on subject in ambient light video is great - playback can be temperamental
Excerpt: Even though the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 is a few years old now, It's the only camera that I thought matched all of my needs for my field of work. It's a very affordable camera that comes fairly close to hitting all the marks, especially for its price. As an adventurer/blogger the I usually focus on both near and far shots. I like to have the best zoom I can get without having to carry a bag of lenses, without sacrificing image quality.
Excerpt: I am a professional photographer/videographer, and I shoot with a Canon 7D. My 15 year old daughter has recently caught the photography bug, but like most kids these days, she changes her mind a lot. She asked for a camera for Christmas, and she actually found this Lumix DMC-FZ70 on her own and brought it to my attention.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I bought this camera as a gift for my granddaughter who has developed a very strong interest in photography. She has wanted to expand beyond a simple point and shoot and be more creative and after reading the reviews and specs for the Lumix, I felt it would be a perfect fit for her. When you consider the very wide range of features the camera has that you can learn about at your own pace, together with the price point the camera sells for, well..
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom
Excerpt: I am very happy with my purchase, I love to take pictures and my little point and shoot camera died so I was ready for an upgrade. My manager recommended this camera to me as he is a Professional Photographer. It is a camera I can grow into. Anxious to start using it.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom
Excerpt: I am an avid photographer and I have used Panasonic Lumix cameras for years. Just gave my FZ60 to my daughter so I could get this bad boy. Haven't had a chance to take too many pictures yet, but the zoom and OIS is really great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
