POWER Optical Image Stabiliser (O.I.S.) with Active Mode to suppress blur
Shaky hands (or even the vibration shake that happens when you press the shutter button) can turn your favourite moments into blurry mess. This is something you never need to worry about with the DMC-FZ70, because it comes equipped with POWER O.I.S. to ensure stable framing and blur-free shots even at the tele-end setting. The Active Mode setting is also invaluable in this regard as it means you can shoot or record while walking without causing deterioration of image quality.
High speed response means the great moments won’t be missed
The DMC-FZ60 has a 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and an advanced Venus Engine image processor and offers high speed burst shooting at 10 fps in 16.1-megapixel full resolution (max 3 images) and 5 fps with continuous AF. Light Speed AF catches the most fleeting shooting opportunities, with a fast start-up time of approximately 0.9 sec. Battery life has been extended by around 12%, making it possible to shoot 450 pictures per a single charge.
Never miss a picture with Light Speed AF and high-speed burst shooting
It’s true that the best moments are fleeting; time certainly doesn’t wait while you fiddle with a camera hoping to pin it down in the perfect picture. The DMC-FZ70 won’t make time stand still but it is so quick and responsive that you’ll be easily snapping those precious memories no matter how fast they fly. The camera has a fast start-up time of 0.9 seconds, Light Speed AF so you can quickly focus on moving subjects, and it supports burst shooting at 9 fps in 16.1-megapixel full resolution*2 and 5 fps with continuous AF. With such high-speed response you can be sure that every photo opportunity is yours to capture forever.
Create your own movies with professional quality audio
The DMC-FZ70’s photo performance is outstanding and you’ll be pleased to know that its video shooting capabilities are just as strong. The camera records high resolution Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 50i videos in AVCHD and also boasts the highly realistic Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator for superior video sound. The new Windshield Zoom Microphone ensures the audio recording is incredibly clear, supressing wind noise 70% more than the previous model*3.
Enjoy more expressive photography with intuitive control and creative features
Full manual control is available with the DMC-FZ70, so you can experience more creative shooting in both photo and video recording. The camera is also equipped with a hot shoe, allowing you to fit a number of optional accessories, plus the Creative Control and Creative Retouch modes now include 15 different filters for more expressive imagery.
