The unreliable touchscreen and edging towards darker tones just prevents the Panasonic FX70 from being an Editor's Choice, but only by a whisker. A top camera, and very impressive in the majority of...

Yes, take away the touch screen, high resolution, brighter than average lens and broader focal range and you have an affordable snapper pure and simple. The fact that it does have all these features however raises the FX70 in the gameOverall Our ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC FX70 does not quite match up to the picture quality I am used to seeing from Panasonic digital cameras. It does have a lot of other plus points, but if you are looking for true clarity in your photos there are better pocket...

There’s a premium price tag with this top end compact from Panasonic, and while it has some standout features – lovely build, neat design, nice touch screen, and a super wide angle lens, it never really hits top spot. There are a number of...

Im Detail erlaubt sich die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 ziemlich viele Fehler – sehr schade, denn eigentlich lebt die Lumix-Baureihe gerade hier einen kompromisslosen Hang zur Perfektion vor. Gemessen am Preis ist das Modell daher keine gute Wahl: Es...

International Review By Digital Life on 60

Lumix FX70 är en liten och elegant fickkamera med touchskärm på tre tum. Den är något lättare än Ixus 1000 HS, men så känns den också något plastigare. På baksidan finns endast två...

International Review By TecnoZoom on 80

La Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 è una buona fotocamera compatta dotata di alcune accortezze che la pongono un gradino sopra le altre. Innanzitutto il display touchscreen e di buone dimensioni, che facilita la vita al fotografo, poi lo stabilizzatore...

Die handliche Style-Kamera Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 punktet mit einem großen Touchscreen, einer lichtstarken Weitwinkel-Optik und HD-Video. Auch die schnelle Auslöseverzögerung beeindruckt. Allerdings: das Bildrauschen...
