Life is more than a single moment captured in time. Panasonic understands that and delivers advanced multimedia technology in the Lumix DMC-FZ70 Digital Camera. 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.

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.

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.

Steve B. from Ferndale, WA on September 16, 2013:
The right tool for someone wishing to photograph wildlife without spending or carrying very much. It works. 1200mm EFL is usable for handheld shots due to the very effective IS. Pull back a bit on the zoom, set AF to AFC, change from a single focus box to a multipoint pattern, turn up the ISO, and you can take BIF shots, something I've never been able to do before with a superzppm. Of course there's another end to the zoom, 20mm EFL and that makes the camera immensely versatile.
