Panasonic has today introduced the TZ70, TZ57, SZ10 and FT30 cameras to its LUMIX compact range. 

The LUMIX TZ70 features a 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor, ultra-wide-angle 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens and 30x optical zoom. Images can be recorded in RAW format and Full HD video can be captured in an AVCHD Progressive format.  A control ring is located on the lens barrel and the LUMIX TZ70 also sports a 0.2-inch Live View Finder (LVF) with an eye-sensor. Panasonic has also incorporated a 240fps Auto Focus (AF) sensor drive into the LUMIX TZ70 which also boasts a Focus Peaking function and a Level Shot Function which detects the horizontal line of the recording image and keeps it level even if the camera is tilted. Various creative filters are included, plus Wi-Fi connectivity and NFC are integrated along with one-touch geo-tagging. By connecting a smartphone or tablet, users can also remotely control the camera which also features a newly added 'Jump Shot' function which uses a connected devices accelerometer to recognise when a user reaches the top of their jump and takes a picture at this point.
