Panasonic has this week added a new addition to their range of cameras, in the form of the newly launched Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 which is equipped with a 16.1 megapixel sensor.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 comes fitted with a 20mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens with a Super Telephoto 60x Optical Zoom providing a 35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm.
Panasonic says they have packed their new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 camera with “the best multimedia technologies Panasonic makes” and it includes a F2.8-5.9 lens brightness allows users to capture both video and photos in low-light conditions.
Other features of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 camera include optical image stabilisation, together with an Intelligent Resolution technology, enabling the FZ70 to extend the zoom ratio up to 120X equivalent while maintaining the picture quality.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 camera also features in-camera creative controls and retouch with Creative Panorama (13 effects), Creative Control (15 effects) and Creative Retouch (15 effects)
“The Creative Control and Creative Retouch feature a total of 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 lets users shoot with a filter effect while evaluating how it makes a difference in the picture: this can be used for video recording, as well*. The Creative Retouch enables applying a filter effect on the picture even after shooting in camera.”
