Panasonic FX70 review video

Impressively the FX70 packs 720p HD video, a 14 MP sensor, and a 3” touch screen into a very slight frame.

Annoyingly the touch screen wasn’t very responsive but all the other features worked well.

Image quality was something of a mixed bag with some tones muddied by over-processing and exposure favouring the darker end of the spectrum. Images were sharp though and focus was impressively rapid.

Overall we thought that although the FX70 had some issues with the touch screen and tended to favour the darker tones, some of the images were extremely sharp and it was a very simple camera to use with some superb functions, such as the 720p HD movie mode. As a result we gave it 85% and our Recommended Award.
