Re: Low light noise

This 'review' is of no real value. All cameras exhibit 'noise' in low light, with the amount varying and how much can be attenuated in-camera or PP.

And have you actually used the camera under all those test conditions, for example in the studio?

I'm curious why you say that flash photography (social) is only acceptable, especially when the camera has a hot shoe to mount an auxiliary flash. Can you explain what test you conducted to determine this?

No pictures, but if you want to find out what the video-performance looks like then you can find my video test of the LUMIX DMC-FZ72 (European version).

Nice demo. Your FZ-70 did not loose focus during zooming, which cannot be said for some other long zoon bridge camera brand videos I have seen on YouTube.

In New Zealand, the FZ-70 costs 3/4 of the FZ-200 - it's horses for courses.
