Who's it for? Anyone who wants a decent casual point and shoot with a long zoom. The TZ70 has a huge zoom and a handy electronic viewfinder.
Panasonic has always made good 'travel zooms' and the Lumix TZ70 is no exception. It's a stylish camera with a contemporary look inspired by Panasonic's more expensive micro four thirds cameras like the GX7. It has a nice little hand grip that makes it easy to handle and simple, point and shoot controls.
The highlight is the huge 30x zoom, which retracts neatly to ensure you can still slip the TZ70 easily into a pocket. It'll shoot decent video and has built-in microphones for this as well. It also has a very good electronic viewfinder, which means you can actually see what you're doing in bright sunlight.
All this makes it a great camera for travelling around with as it can take more less any photo, no matter how far from the subject you're standing.
