Panasonic Unveils the Lumix DC-ZS70, a Compact with 4K and 30X Zoom


Panasonic today announced the new Lumix DC-ZS70, a “Travel Zoom” compact camera for people on the go.

Inside the camera is a 20.3-megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor that can shoot 4K video.

On the front of the camera is a 24mm ultra wide-angle lens that has 30x optical zoom.

Turn the camera around, and you’ll find a 3-inch, 180-degree-tilting LCD screen with 1.04 million dots, which “allows users enjoy a variety of selfie shots including 4K selfies and panoramic selfies,” Panasonic says. Above the LCD is a 0.2-inch, 1.166-million-dot electronic viewfinder.

Other features and specs of the camera include 4K Photos (8MP stills at 30fps), Post Focus (selecting focus point after shooting), Focus Stacking, an autofocus speed of 0.1 seconds, 10fps burst mode, a Control Ring on the lens barrel, RAW photos, Wi-Fi, and 5-axis Hybrid optical image stabilization.

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 will be available in silver or black in late May 2017 with a price tag of $449.
