The LUMIX TZ70 is a compact camera that is ideal for travel, featuring a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR 30x optical zoom lens. You’ll be able to photograph epic landscapes from afar or zoom up close to pick out the finest details and its compact size also makes it ideal for slipping into your pocket.

Composing your perfect shot with precision is made possible with the manual control ring on the front of the camera enabling a smooth operation of the Focus Peaking function. This indicates the area of focus and depth of field so you can concentrate on your composition.

  • Large pixel sized high sensitivity MOS sensor
  • 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens
  • 30x optical zoom
  • Electronic viewfinder with eye-sensor
  • Control ring for Manual Focus and Focus Peaking
  • Full HD movies (60/50p)
  • 5-Axis OIS

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 takes your interest. Its compact size makes it ideal for slipping into a pocket or a bag for easy access. Wherever you’re travelling, make sure the LUMIX TZ70 is there to capture every detail.

Low light conditions can be a challenge but with the LUMIX TZ70's 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. Capture more details when you shoot in RAW format. The image data retains the original colour and light information captured by the sensor, with only minimal processing. Now you can edit these high quality images directly and be amazed by the results.

Wherever your travels take you and whatever the light conditions are, the Live View Finder is an invaluable asset. Perfect for framing the image when light conditions make it difficult to use the LCD 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.

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. The Control ring also 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.

The LUMIX TZ70 lets you record videos in full-HD quality, in AVCHD or map4 format. This results in stunningly smooth high resolution playback when you watch your captured videos on computers or large screen TVs. The HYBRID O.I.S.+ technology ensures your videos are captured with little unwanted movement. The 5-axis correction automatically detects and adjusts, based on the camera’s 5 types of movement, while the Level Shot senses the horizontal line of recording, even when tilted. This leaves you with perfectly levelled videos.
