The TZ70 falls into the category of travel zoom compact camera that fits in a pocket, yet provides a large zoom range and is therefore ideal for holidays. The camera can be set in many ways, including full manual M mode. And of course you may also work in raw, so you can perfect pictures afterwards even better.

TZ70 in the hand

If you look superficially at the new Panasonic Lumix TZ70, there seems little changed compared to predecessor TZ60. The camera still has 30x optical zoom, an electronic viewfinder, and support for raw and manual settings. However, regarding components is everything changed.

Remarkably, the number of megapixels is significantly lowered. Counted the TZ60 18 megapixels on its 1 / 2.3 “sensor, the Panasonic TZ70 has reduced that number to 12.1. That is a resolution that is much lower than average, but there is something to say for . The pixel diodes are larger and that should yield better noise performance. The built-in electronic viewfinder has improved. He is still quite small, but now with 1.2 million dots instead 200,000. The image is thereby noticeably sharper.
