In this review, we will be comparing ZS80 and ZS70, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Panasonic. Panasonic ZS80 was introduced to market in February 2018 and Panasonic ZS70 was launched in April 2017. There is 14 months difference between ZS80 and ZS70 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger ZS80, especially in sensor tech.
Both cameras have 20.0MP sensors but Panasonic ZS80's sensor is 1/2.3 sized whereas Panasonic ZS70 has a 1/2.3" sensor. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Small Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 244 cameras in this class, Panasonic ZS80 is ranked #5
with an overall score of 64 and Panasonic ZS70 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 65.
