Honestly, my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 does not have these lovely colors at default settings. What else to say about the FZ70? Its sensor has surprisingly good dynamic range. Oh, the shutter release lag is minimal. There is none of that cheapy point and shoot lag. No waiting for a photo to be captured. After locking the focus by half-pressing the button, the picture is taken as soon as you press it fully. As soon as I took the first picture, I smiled so wide, because I was not expecting such DSLR-like behavior. Click. Sharp picture. Click. Another sharp picture. And that was in low light. SO SATISFYING.
I'm telling you, it's a FUN camera and I NEVER felt the desire or even thought, "I wish I had my DSLR with me." I would be content having just this camera for a day without anything else. The zoom is not super fast in terms of speed, but come on...for less than $300, that would be too much to ask. The lens is SUPER WIDE, and it is respectably sharp even when zoomed fully, and I did not see chromatic aberrations when shooting a sunset. Ah, funny thing: even in VGA mode, the video quality is impressive. The camera has like 200 MB internal memory, so it can only record VGA. But it looks so good in camera, my sister and me started laughing. This is coming from me, a guy used to fast DSLRs and who would not be caught dead with a point and shoot. But not anymore, because this FZ70 is AWESOME. It even records RAW files if you happen to be allergic to JPEGs. How cool is that? Enclosed are snapshots testing the colors...and handheld moonshots...one at max zoom and one at less zoom. All are on Sunset scene setting. Thanks for reading. God bless you greatly!
The zoom is truly awesome in this. No SLR lens can compare. It's great for birdwatching, zooming in on a face in the crowd, wildlife shots, and even just cool stuff that's a long way away.
4k video is great. I'm a Canon SLR person and they don't have 4k in the low or mid-range for an SLR, so that's why I got this and it is great.
Fast FPS. The camera can take 4k video, which is 8mp at 30fps. It claims it will do it in 4k Burst mode, which really means it takes a 4k video and will show you frame by frame and let you select ones to make photos. Horrible to do on the camera's screen, I wound up getting software that would do it on my PC and just pulling all the images out. Which you can do from any video, so this is an ineffective feature (at least for me). I wanted something that would create 30 images/second, which I could go through on a real screen and post quickly. As this feature is why I chose the Lumix over a Nikon, I'm a little annoyed at their implementation.
Low light conditions for moving subjects are awful. To the point that you will have low light issues in places you didn't realize were low light, and there is no "action" choice on the selector. The F2.8 for the lens in wide isn't matched by a very sensitive sensor, or it's not automatically upping the sensitivity as needed. I have a ton of blurry shots of my kids because of this. I've played with the light levels and it is cludgey at best, completely ineffective at worst. I've hit a sweet spot a couple of times by setting it to 1/60th of a second, but it still has issues (and my kids aren't that fast). This is an AMAZING outdoor daytime camera, but for kids in a bounce house it doesn't work for me.
No Focus Ring, so obstructed zoom is hit or miss. Generally, zoom and autofocus are fantastic and FAST. This means that taking a picture of wildlife that is partially obstructed by a branch means that you may get a fantastic shot of a leaf instead of the Pileated Woodpecker you were trying for. Also, since the aperture only goes to F-8, there's a limit to how much depth you can get so that crystal clear leaf may only be 6 inches closer than the woodpecker, but, oh well.
Very limited options on the selection wheel. They've got the fab 5 (auto, P, A, S, M), then Expressive (for filters), Portrait, Panoramic, C? (maybe custom, but defaults to 1080p/60fps), and then Video (for adjusting settings in video mode)
My last complaint is the smallest, the features (like C above) are poorly explained on screen (aperture is only "A", which isn't useful to noobs), which means that Panasonic style features are not understandable to people with more experience. I accidentally turned on the feature of take 3 shots and merge them which doesn't work for kids moving (but would be great for landscape shots). Missed 1/2 of my kids' Karate class trying to fix it instead of taking pictures.
Overall, this is an AWESOME camera if you are taking zoomed pictures or videos in sunlight, or of non-moving subjects. The autofocusing on a leaf can be annoying, but survivable. The wifi, etc. is nice but not particularly useful for me. I have tested it and it'd be great to put on a monopod and use your phone to selection shots in a crowd. And for $300, no SLR can compare on value. However, once Canon comes out with the T8i, if the 4k is good, I'll likely put this on craigslist. Because of the crappy low light, I still use my Canon T4i if I'm going somewhere like the Baltimore Aquarium or Natural History Museum with my boys, and this camera should have put my T4i to bed.
Top international reviews
That said - I'm not a professional photographer, and the photo quality from this camera is exceptionally adequate for my purposes. I chose this particular camera after a lot of research because the length of the telephoto zoom vs the price was unbeatable. I do a lot of hiking, and end up taking pictures of a lot of wildlife - and often you're a great distance away from these animals. A more typical zoom wouldn't allow you to get some of those shots. People have remarked that the photos I've shown them are amazing, and that I must have 'quite the professional camera to get shots like that.' There's definitely nothing wrong with the quality of the photos you'll get from this camera - as long as you keep some things in mind (lighting, bracing the camera for a steady shot when using the long zoom, etc).
- Super-long 60x zoom (1200mm equiv)
- Optical Image stabilization (great for those super-long handheld shots)
- Automatic HDR using multiple images with back-lit subjects - ever taken a picture of a group of people with the sun in the background, only to find the pictures shows a silhouette of the people as they're too dark to see given the light behind them? This automatically fixes that.
-Great video quality too - and the microphone seems to work really well even in the wind
- Enough controls to do a lot manually if you want - control shutter speed, aperture, etc. - or leave it in auto and let the camera decide
- Build in creative effects if you're into that
- Not water resistant or dust/sand resistant at all - makes me nervous to take it some places
- Hard to tell how much battery you have left on the screen or in the viewfinder before it gets to low battery
- This is sort of a pro and a con - but it has some internal memory - so you can actually take a number of photos without a memory card in it. This is great until you forget to put your memory card in. I typically turn on my camera and snap a pic of the wall on the way out the door just to ensure came is charged, memory card in place, etc - but it got me with this one.
I took all of the photos here with this camera, and all were taken hand-held, no tripod. I think amazon scales down the images for the review - so obviously these aren't at full resolution, but I think they show what you can do...
- small and lightweight for the huge zoom range.
-relatively inexpensive compared to other cameras of its type.
-good battery life.
-lots of handy features, like the built in wifi, USB charging, and the smartphone app.
-extremely disappointing image quality is its worst feature. It can not produce an acceptable image in any conditions. The noise produced by the sensor is unacceptable even at iso 80. For this reason it is useless to me. I thought it would have been at least as good as my entry level dslr (Nikon d40), that’s 10 years old, but it’s much worse.
- video mode is also very disappointing and did not live up to my expectations. It struggles to produce noise free video in most situations, but it is slightly better than in stills mode.
- the image stabilization is very loud, and does not work very well. Also when handheld or even sitting on a solid surface it jitters horizontally for no reason.
- when moving from areas of different temperature of humidity, the lens fogs up (which is normal I know), but it takes and incredibly long time for it to recover and become clear again.
-the auto focus works well at wide angles, but struggles at any telephoto focal length...and if it’s raining or snowing, I wan not able to get the camera to focus at all past the closest snowflakes. It would lock onto the snow but not the subject.
Overall the thing that made me decide to return this camera was the sub-par image quality...the most important thing in a camera to me.
Best bridge camera ive ever used and I own a Nikon p900.
Having used this camera extensively for around 6 weeks in a variety of lighting conditions, in cities and in the country, I can say that it does not disappoint. The build quality feels solid and it can easily be carried around for a few hours without too much effort.
The Intelligent Auto + (iA+), which the camera is set to by default, does a good job at recognizing particular scene types and adjusting the exposure accordingly. In this mode, you still have control of a number of parameters, including exposure value compensation ( which effectively changes the aperture) and white balance. Image stabilization is smooth even at the longer end of the telephoto range, providing you use the electronic viewfinder and cradle the lens barrel as you take the shot. Telephoto image quality can be improved considerably with the use of a tripod. The lens itself extends and retracts quickly and smoothly, while autofocus easily finds the subject. You can also select the focus point yourself using the touchscreen if you are not satisfied.
There are times, for example in low light conditions or indoors, where the camera may select the wrong scene type and completely muck up the exposure. In these cases I would select either Program Auto or Manual modes to get more control over shutter speed and aperture. Bearing in mind the small sensor, the camera's handheld performance in low light is passable. If you anticipate doing a decent amount of low light photography, I would suggest buying a cheap but stable tripod and using Manual modes to adjust exposure. Just remember to turn image stabilization off to prevent unwanted artifacts smearing the image.
Those looking for creative control over depth of field similar to what a DSLR can offer will be disappointed. This is not a fixed aperture lens. The camera's aperture range at 20mm EFL is F/2.8- F8, but at 100mm is only F/5.9 to F8. this makes it hard to achieve shallow depth of field at the lower focal lengths, although it is still possible at longer focal lengths providing you use a smaller aperture such as F/2.8 or F4 and correspondingly faster shutter speeds. Having said that, depth of field at the wide angle setting does not change significantly between F/4 and F8. I would argue that F/4 is a better setting for landscapes as you get less softening of the image.
You can see some of the images below this review which I have taken using this camera. The resolution, sharpness and detail are more than adequate for the amateur enthusiast. One great feature is the built-in WiFi, which makes transferring images to your smartphone a doddle.
One of the great strengths of this camera is the 4K video, which is not generally found at this price range. While 4K only shoots for 15 minutes at a time due to the risk of overheating, you can still shoot in 1080p for as long as you want.
In conclusion, this is a great camera for this price and can easily adapt to any situation and help you build your photography skills for years to come. Would I buy it again? Absolutely.
Unfortunately the OIS makes a constant noise, louder when zoomed, and the zoom itself is even louder, which is audible on any video recording, thus making it useless for recording something like a bird singing.
Liked the camera, but returned it for this reason. What good is great video capability spoiled by loud background noise.
