Panasonic is proud to introduce the new DMC-FZ70(FZ72) from the LUMIX's popular FZ series that packs a powerful optical zoom and superior controllability including manual operation over photo and full HD video recording. The DMC-FZ70(FZ72) features exceptionally versatile LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra wide-angle lens with a 60x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm) making it possible to capture dynamic landscape and wild animals or birds distant away. The powerful 60x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm) can be increased its power to 120x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function taking advantage of the Intelligent Resolution technology maintaining the picture quality even using digital zoom. Furthermore, the Tele Conversion Lens (sold separately) extends the zoom ratio to 1.7x to pull the subject far off even closer with minimum deterioration of image quality.
Newly integrated 16.1 megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and the advanced image processor Venus Engine feature high speed response and high quality image even in high sensitivity recording. It contributes to the high speed burst shooting at 9 fps in full resolution* and the Light Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities together with the quick start-up time of approx. 0.9 sec.
The DMC-FZ70(FZ72) records 1,920 x 1,080 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) full-HD video recording** in AVCHD / MP4 with highly realistic stereo sound. The sound quality is dramatically improved thanks to the newly developed Windshield Zoom Microphone that minimizes wind noise by approx.70%*** compared with the predecessor. The powerful 60x optical zoom and the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode powerfully suppresses blur even in video recording.
