CNET UK has tested a new digital camera from Panasonic. The Panasonic camera is called Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 (Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX75 in some markets) and has over 14 megapixels combined with a nice Leica branded wide angle zoom lens that starts at F2.2.

Some key features for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 / FX75:
-14.1 megapixel image sensor
-5x optical zoom lens (24-120mm, F2.2-5.9)
-Optical image stabilization
-AVCHD Lite 720p video
-3″ LCD touchscreen

CNET UK ends up giving the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 a total score of 3.5 stars out of 5 possible. On the positive side we find a useful zoom range, good build quality and the touchscreen works well. On the negative side the reviewer find aspects such as expensive price tag, sensor limitations and the new technologies are confusing. The Panasonic camera is good, but it is not excellent so it does not really justify the high price. The so called “intelligent technologies” also seem a bit redundant.
