The LUMIX TZ70 brings you right up against the action. The 24mm Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens has a 30x optical zoom so you will always have an intimate view, and captured picture, of what piques your interest.
Stunning in Low Light - High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
Low light conditions can be a challenge but with the LUMIX TZ70s new larger pixel-sized High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor, you can take stunning pictures even in dimly lit environments. Pictures taken in low light will contain clearer details and less image noise
See Clearer With The Live View Finder
Wherever your travels take you and whatever the light conditions are, the Live View Finder is an invaluable gem. Perfect for framing the image when light conditions make it difficult to use the LED screen, the eye sensor automatically detects your viewing preference and switches image display to the Live View Finder. Its high 1.166k-dot resolution with approx. 100% colour reproduction provides stable framing and superb visibility, in any light conditions, so you can take stunning photos with ease.
Be In Control - Control Ring
The Control Ring now provides smoother manual control of the exposure, zoom, and focus; leaving you free to concentrate on shutter operation with your other hand. Its intuitive design, precise focusing plus smooth and silent operation gives you total control over every picture and video taken.
Precision Is Key - Manual Focus Peaking
Compose your perfect shot with precision. The manual control ring enables smooth operation of the Focus Peaking function. It indicates the area of focus and depth of field so you can concentrate on your composition.
Experience The Action - High Speed Response
Take perfect pictures or videos, of even the fastest moving action with the LUMIX TZ70s Light Speed Auto Focus and 10fps High Speed Burst Shooting. No matter how fast your subject is, the camera shoots just as fast, capturing perfectly focused images every time.
RAW Format Recording

Be in awe of the natural drama such as a rising sun over an epic horizon, with your time-lapse recording. Simply input the start time, shooting interval and the number of images needed and the camera takes care of the rest. The LUMIX TZ70 even records your time-lapse moments in amazing Full HD quality.
High Speed Video
The LUMIX TZ70 now records with 100fps in High Definition resolution and 200fps in VGA. This lets you keep up with any fast moving action so you can later enjoy in crystal clear slow motion.
Stay Steady With HYBRID O.I.S.
The HYBRID O.I.S. technology ensures your images or videos are captured with little unwanted movement. The 5-axis correction automatically detects and adjusts, based on the cameras 5 types of movement, while the Level Shot senses the horizontal line of recording, even when tilted. This not only leaves you with perfectly levelled videos, but also reassuringly crisp and steady photos as well.
Showtime in Full HD
The LUMIX TZ70 lets you record videos in Full HD quality, in AVCHD or MP4 format. This results in stunningly smooth high resolution playback when you watch your captured videos on computers or large screen TVs.
