The 20mm ultra wide angle lens captures approx 140% wider angle of view compared with a 24mm angle of view.

  • IA (intelligent Auto)/iA Plus Mode
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range)

POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration. The angular width that the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) can compensate is more than 200% wider than the predecessor DMC-FZ60 (FZ62) at the tele-end, which realizes handheld 1200mm super telephoto shooting. The Active Mode is equipped with DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) that encourages active video recording at wide angle such as shooting while walking without causing deterioration of image quality.


Full-HD Video Recording in AVCHD and MP4 Format
The DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) records high-resolution full-HD 1920 x 1080 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL)* videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. Alternately, you can choose MP4 at 30p (NTSC) / 25p (PAL) for video recording. A special, separate button on the top lets you instantly start recording videos while shooting photos without having to make any extra settings.


Clear Sound Recording with Windshield Zoom Microphone
The recorded videos come with the highly realistic Dolby® Digital and its sound quality is further improved with the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) thanks to the newly developed Windshield Zoom Microphone that minimizes wind noise by approx. 70% compared with the predecessor DMC-FZ60 (FZ62). Externally, the special sealed structure prevents wind from hitting the microphone directly and the draft structure suppresses retention of air internally. As a result, the sound is clear, comfortable to listen even it was recorded on a windy day.


16.1-Megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
The 16.1-Megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is newly integrated in the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72). Together with the high performance image processing LSI Venus Engine, it elevates the response, sensitivity and image quality of the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) even to the higher level.


High Speed Response
Integrating the high speed digital signal output technology, the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) shoot 9fps in 16.1-Megapixel full resolution* with mechanical shutter and 5fps with continuous AF. It also contributes to the Light Speed AF. Together with the quick start-up time, the DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) never misses the most fleeting shooting opportunities.


60X Optical Zoom in Video Recording
The powerful 60X optical zoom with POWER O.I.S. is available in video recording, too. The Active Mode is equipped with DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) that encourages active video recording at wide angle such as shooting while walking without causing deterioration of image quality.


Creative Video Mode
The Creative Video Mode lets you adjust the shutter speed and aperture any way you like when shooting videos.
