A better bird watcher

Little Buddha, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I am a huge nature fan and bird watcher and I really wanted a camera with a bigger zoom than what I was using (Panasonic FH25). I did some research and found the Panasonic FZ720. I LOVE the 60X zoom! I have been able to get some great bird/critter shots without getting so close and scaring them off. I also enjoy using the macro mode to get real close up to natures patterns. The only thing that isn't so great, is the amount of time it takes to take the picture.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom

Fantastic Camera, Great Value

PlevensonLAc, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am not an experienced photographer and really wanted a camera that was easy to use right out of the box. The Lumix DMC-FZ70 was that camera! What I love about this camera is that I was able to take some really beautiful shots using the fully automatic mode and I can experiment and learn in the manual mode. I am also looking forward to using my Lumix to make short educational videos. I have not yet done that so stay tuned!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom

Great bridge camera with multiple features

kanehi, Panasonic

  • Summary: First of all the camera is a tad larger than my Canon SX50 which is a plus because I can hold it more comfortably and steadily and yet surprisingly about the same weight. As any camera there is a learning curve on how to operate it and some people just don't want to learn. Yes it does have a lot of bells and whistles and once you learnt it it's actually a cool camera.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, great zoom range, built quality, good battery life
  • Cons: Poor documentation

Very useful take anywhere super zoom

Murphys Man, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Bought the FZ70 when I noticed that I was often attaching a teleconverter to my failing, but not quite dead, FZ100. I have APSC equipment, with lenses up to 500mm, but was using the FZ as my "walking in the woods" camera almost exclusively for the convienience and weight. I figured that the extra zoom range would be welcome, but worried about hand holding a 1200mm equivalent lens in the less than perfect light that comes with shooting birds and wildlife.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
  • Cons: Fixed Rear Screen, No Cable Release Port, No lens hood

Great Camera For The Price

Wayne, B&H Photo
6 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera as a low-cost solution for covering events as I do for companies ever so often. I'm saving to buy a GH3/4 early next year so I didn't wanna get anything too expensive in the interim. I'm loving it so far. The low-light / nighttime video performance is what really stands out for me, does a really good job at the nighttime events I go to, with the occasional help of external lights sometimes.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

  • Summary: The pictures look good... Not great! Could be the screen on the camera but pictures on mobile phones sometimes seem more clear and crisp.

The perfect vacation camera.

Mike, B&H Photo
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a holiday coming up and did not want to take my best camera for fear of damage or theft. I purchased the Lumix DMC FZ70 for its extraordinary range of focal lengths in a fixed lens. At max telephoto it is 1200 mm. There are other bridge-style cameras which offer this, but only the FZ70 offers a max wide angle of 20 mm - ideal for landscapes and for up-close group shots. It's light, just the right size, and the controls are easy and intuitive.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
