Excerpt: This camera was recommended to me by a friend. I was looking for a camera that would take a great picture and video but would not cost an arm and a leg. This camera is fantastic for my neads! Highly recommended.
Summary: I have had nothing but good experiences with Panasonic LUMIX Cameras and after only a few test shots this easy to use 60X zoom is already impressing me. I live on an animal reserve in Panama and I am looking forward to using this camera when I get home.
Excerpt: Im blown away by the telephoto shots this puppy can make. CONTRARY to what the lens says Panasonic got back to me via email and assured me that its still using LEICA lens but renaming them. as you can see by the pictures it took.
Excerpt: Photo enthusiast stepping down from a SLR camera after 10+ years of taking sports photos of the grand kids and wildlife, using multiples lenses and settings. Very pleased with the ease of use of this DMC-FZ70. I like having a choice to use the viewfinder. It helps me stabilize zoom shots!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
Summary: It has worked out well. The kit was shipped USPS, and on the day it was scheduled to be delivered, it was actually in a post office 160 miles to the south, so it was late arriving. In my work, I need the date and time (Time Stamp) to appear on the print.
