Greetings to all, I have a FZ60 which I use when birding.  One very irritating feature of FZ60 is that spot focus is lost when camera goes to sleep (10 minutes max.).  Does the FZ70 retain spot focus when "awakened"?  I have looked at on-line manual for the FZ70 but would like FZ70 owners comments.  Thanks! Dave

I currently have an FZ7 and like it. I am looking to upgrade to the FZ70 but I would like to have a remote for when I am using the tripod. Looking at the specs and comparisons here at dpreview, it says that there is a remote, the DMW-RSL1.  Having looked over the camera well in the shop I can't find where it plugs in?  I know that the FZ200 has this capability.  Have I missed something or is it a typo? Also, if I jump into an SLR I am considering the Pentax K50.  Any thoughts? With thanks!

I read that the Panasonic FZ70 decreases the pixel count when zoomed out to 1200 mm. If this is true then it looks to me that the maximum zoom is arrived at by cropping the image on the sensor, rather than by optical zooming. If this is true then the lens specifications given by Panasonic are not correct, ie instead of the lens being 3.58-215 mm as claimed, it may be only 3.58-108 mm, with the final 2 times zoom multiplication being provided by cropping. I hope I am wrong, but my suspicion is...

Is it possible to create panorama shots in wide portrait format with a Panasonic FZ70? When I try it, I wind up with useless narrow strips.  Other than that, I am very pleased with the camera. I have a Sony RX-100 that allows me to do that.  Thanks.

I find the Panasonic menu system bizarre and bewildering. For example, “Rec"(with the camera icon on the left) has 6 screens numbered 1-6 on the top. I have no idea how to navigate to scroll thru those 6 screens. It makes sense to me that when it is on #1, using the right arrow key should jump to page 2, not the case since “photo style” is highlighted. If I hit the up arrow it takes me to the last page -- sounds promising. But when I hit the left arrow, it takes me to “clock set”, not page 5....

In trying to improve the burst mode performance of my FZ70, I've been researching speeds of Sandisk memory cards and came across an announcement of Sandisk's SDHC and SDXC Extreme Pro UHSII, Speed Class 3, 280/250 MB/s read/write speed labeled as "the world's fastest memory card."  Does anyone know if the FZ70 can handle this new card or is it restricted to the old Speed Class 1 90MB/s?

Hi all, I am trying to find a camera to use when I go on travels for climbing/travel. I used to have an Olympus XZ-1, as was very happy with it, but it got stolen. So now I am looking for a new one. I am on a limited budget, and have suggested the below cameras as I know I can afford them. TZ60, FZ72, NEX-3N (with 16-50mm), A3000 (with 18-55)mm, LX7.   While reading climbing blogs, I've noticed that alot of people recommend having some wide angle and zoom capabilities, which is why I've...

I found an old Slik 450G tripod, no longer in production, that once belonged to my son and I'd like to use it with my FZ70. But it's missing a head and all the heads sold at B&H and other shops seem to have heads attached with a screw. The top of this tripod has no male or female screws. Is it missing another part?
