Panasonic has just announced their Lumix DMC-FZ70, which is a 16-megapixel shooter that does more than just capture great looking photos – its main selling point would be a 60x optical zoom lens that would make it the longest that one would have ever seen in the market where a fixed-lens camera is concerned, and you can also say that this is longer compared to majority of the other full-sized camcorders out there, too. After all, camcorders tend to have longer zoom lenses than cameras, but with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70, the digital camera is an exception to the rule.
It is said that when the Lumix DMC-FZ70 is zoomed in fully, it is capable of immortalizing such details like the craters that you can find on the moon, or perhaps to shoot the logo on a soccer ball even when you are far out on the sidelines. Not only that, the Lumix DMC-FZ70 also boasts of a lens with an extremely wide-angle capability of 20mm, making it ideal to shoot panoramic-style landscapes as well as capture some great looking group portraits without leaving anyone out. It is tipped that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 will arrive sometime early next month for approximately $400 a pop.
