Panasonic DMC-LS70s Reviews
DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70 and writes;
“The camera handles like a small brick, which should come as no surprise considering the bulky rectangular frame and lack of any real grip or textured areas. Many competing cameras are designed with a bulging right side hand-grip for added comfort and control. The LS70 has a small ridge in the upper right corner of the camera’s back face and eight inset dots that, due to their design and positioning, do nothing to aid in grip and handling.”
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70 and writes;
” Image quality was good. Our sample images are nice and sharp, with no visible edge softness, and the exposure and color balance are very pleasing. Noise is present at even ISO 100, however, you have to be viewing an image at 100% to see this and it is very unlikely you will see it in your photos…”
LaptopMag reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70 and writes;
“The image of our colleague appeared undersaturated, however. Startup time and the time between shots were both speedy, taking less than two seconds for each. The Lumix DMC-LS70S also captures 30-fps VGA video, which is suitable for online applications.”

Panasonic DMC-LS70s Press Release
SECAUCUS, N.J., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ — Panasonic today announced the Lumix DMC-LS70 digital camera, to its 2007 digital camera line. The 7.2 megapixel Lumix DMC-LS70 features Intelligent Image Stabilization with MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Intelligent ISO Control, superb optical 3x zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm on a 35mm film camera), and a LUMIX DC VARIO lens. Panasonic is committed to bringing top line features — like Intelligent Image Stabilization — to all their digital cameras, making superior imaging a priority.
Panasonic’s multi-tasking Intelligent Image Stabilization system makes it easy to capture beautiful photos every time. Today, MEGA O.I.S., which is a standard feature across the entire line of Lumix cameras, compensates for the effects of hand-shake, making it possible to capture clear, crisp photos indoors, at night, or when taking macro close-ups. However, MEGA O.I.S. cannot suppress the motion blur caused by a subject moving as the photo is being snapped. In this case, the camera’s Venus Engine III image-processing engine — detects whether the subject is moving and, as necessary, raises the ISO setting and shutter speed according to how fast the subject is moving and the light conditions.
“Panasonic is committed to bringing a variety of cameras to our users to match their digital lifestyle,” said Alex Fried, National Marketing Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Corporation of North America. “The DMC-LS70 is leading the charge for our 2007 Lumix line as the ideal compact camera that offers more than a consumer would expect for its features and size.”
The DMC-LS70 is powered by two simple AA batteries, which can be purchased anywhere. Each camera comes with two Panasonic Oxyride AA batteries, which lets users take approximately 60 percent more shots than available with ordinary alkaline batteries — approximately 250 images with the DMC-LS70. The camera also accepts large-capacity SDHC memory cards, giving users more flexibility in shooting and recording.
