12 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30

46% Lighter

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is a 184g digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20. That's 138g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (322g), 156g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (340g) and 97g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (281g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 supports Full HD video, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 do not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

HDMI

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has an HDMI, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

3D

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is 3D, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a GPS, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 do not have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 features multi burst mode, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a built-in flash (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Better Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 scored 76, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 scored 78 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 scored 75.

18 More Awards

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has received 18 awards, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has received no awards, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has received 12 awards, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 has received 10 awards and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has received 1 award.

4 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

CNET.com.au, PhotographyBlog.com, Camera Labs and What Digital Camera all gave the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 a better review score. More ...

CNET.com.au: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 = 81% vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 = 80%

PhotographyBlog.com: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 = 100% vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 = 90%

On average reviewers thought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has better technical features. More than 20 people thought that it had good features and two people thought that it also had a powerful motor.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30

6.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a megapixels of 14.1MP (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 20.3MP digital camera (6.2MP higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both 16MP digital cameras (1.9MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" Image Sensor Size

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, which is half as big image sensor size as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (4/3"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 supports a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 support a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is only 6,400 maximum ISO speed (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), but the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (19,200 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 also supports 1280 x 720 pixels, 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

580,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has a display resolution of 460,000 Pixels (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are all 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (580,000 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

90 Less Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is a digital camera that takes 260 battery life (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 only takes 350 Shots battery life and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 only takes 330 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

$28 More Expensive

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 by $28.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 retailer sell the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, however 2 stores sell the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Two Years Older

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is older than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 by six months, older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 by two years and older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 by two years. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is the same age as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20.

Moderately Lower Expert Review Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 has an average expert rating of 82%, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has an average expert rating of 86% (based on 76 reviews) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 has an average expert rating of 83% (based on 83 reviews).

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20

Lighter

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 supports Full HD video, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 do not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 features multi burst mode, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a built-in flash (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30), but the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Has a Better Design

On average reviewers thought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a better design. Several people thought that it was ergonomic, good-looking and well designed.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20

A Lot Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a megapixels of 14.1MP (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30), but the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 20.3MP digital camera (6.2MP higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both 16MP digital cameras (1.9MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, which is half as big image sensor size as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (4/3"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 supports a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 support a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

19,200 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (19,200 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (9 times higher video resolution) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 also supports 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has a display resolution of 460,000 Pixels (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30), however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are all 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (580,000 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 does not have a GPS (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 do. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

90 Less Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 takes 260 battery life (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 only takes 350 Shots battery life and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 only takes 330 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 has received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 scored 76, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 scored 78 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 scored 81.

$392 More Expensive

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 by $392, more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 by $206 and more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 by $364.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 shop sell the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, but 2 stores sell the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Higher Still Image Resolution

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6

Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is a 281g digital camera. That's 41g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (322g), 59g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (340g) and 97g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 (184g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

22% Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 has a megapixels of 16MP, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 20.3MP digital camera (4.3MP higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a 16.05MP digital camera (0.050000000000001MP higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are both 14.1MP digital cameras (1.9MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 does not have a GPS (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20), but the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 do. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

20 Less Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is a digital camera that takes 330 battery life, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 only takes 350 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70

Higher Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a megapixels of 20.3MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both only 16MP digital cameras (4.3MP lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are both only 14.1MP digital cameras (6.2MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Higher Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 have a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is 1280 x 720 pixels (9 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

HDMI

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has an HDMI, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 do not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

$28 Cheaper

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is $402 cheaper than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, $186 cheaper than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, $28 cheaper than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and $392 cheaper than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70

30% Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 322g digital camera. That's 18g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (340g), 41g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (281g) and 138g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 (184g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, which is half as big image sensor size as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (4/3"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 support a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 support a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

22,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (22,400 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are both 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (3,200 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 scored 78 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 scored 81.

Significantly Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is only 64%, whereas the average overall rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is 87% (based on 77 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is 86% (based on 83 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 is 86% (based on 187 reviews) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is 75% (based on 18 reviews).

Worse Techradar Review Score

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, which is twice as big image sensor size as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 (1/2 to 1/2.5"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 supports a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 support a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

HDMI

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has an HDMI, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

3D

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is 3D, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 features multi burst mode, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 does not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

90 More Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a digital camera that takes 350 battery life, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 only takes 330 Shots battery life and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 only takes 260 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 do not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a better screen or viewfinder. Several people thought that it had a good viewfinder, had a electronic viewfinder and had a superb screen.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6

Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a 340g digital camera. That's 18g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (322g), 59g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 (281g) and 156g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 (184g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

21% Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a megapixels of 16.05MP, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is a 20.3MP digital camera (4.25MP higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is a 16MP digital camera (0.050000000000001MP lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 are both 14.1MP digital cameras (1.95MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 also supports a 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Hugely Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a maximum playback zoom of 4x, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 is a 16x maximum playback zoom digital camera (12x higher). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.
