Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 Review
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is here for all of you who are looking for a pocket sized camera that is functional. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is the 2015 travel zoom camera from Panasonic. This year, the guys at Panasonic headquarters decided to make something different. Instead of increasing the MP count on its sensor, they reduced it and in place made the individual megapixels even bigger. Panasonic did this in order to increase the sensors ability to take in more light and make the camera suitable for low lit areas.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 as you know is an upgrade from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 and as you would expect, there are a few changes. First on the list is the smaller MOS sensor in terms if megapixels. The new sensor is 12.1 MP and in front of it sits a 30x optical zoom lens just like the one found on its predecessor. The camera offers optical image stabilization using five axis correction which is a prerequisite when on maximum zoom.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70’s design is almost the same as its predecessor. There aren’t many changes although you will realize that the grip is now functional unlike in the TZ60 where it was mostly for aesthetic appeal. Except for the new auto sensor which detects when the electronic viewfinder is on, there isn’t much to write home about. However, you should note that the button used to toggle between the LCD and the electronic viewfinder was moved a bit to the right of the camera.
With the new electronic viewfinder, it’s easy to frame shots when outdoors or when the LCD is too bright for your eyes. What’s more, the camera fits in your pocket very well. The camera’s lens telescopes as soon as you switch the camera on to about 35mm and 60mm when on maximum zoom.
With the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70, you are able to control most of your shots as it offers a manual mode, something you wouldn’t expect with this type of camera. If the camera isn’t focusing on what you want when on autofocus, you can switch to manual mode and use the ring around your camera’s lens barrel to focus on a subject manually. You can also manually adjust the shutter speed and the aperture by using a dedicated switch on the camera. The recording menu will assist you when you need to alter the sensitivity. However, altering the ISO range is a bit of a problem.
All in all, this can be a good camera for starters as well as photography enthusiasts. It offers both manual and Auto modes and so you can play around with your camera to get yourself the perfect shot. The best thing is that it’s portable and so you don’t need to pack any photography gear with you when you are out with your family. You just need to slip it into your pocket and only pull it out when you need to take a shot.
