In this review, we will be comparing the FZ80 and the SX70 HS, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras from Panasonic and Canon. Panasonic FZ80 was introduced to the market in January 2017 and Canon SX70 HS was launched in September 2018. There is 21 months difference between FZ80 and SX70 HS so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger SX70 HS, especially in sensor tech.
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 245 cameras in this class, Panasonic FZ80 is ranked #8
with an overall score of 59 and Canon SX70 HS is ranked #7
with an overall score of 59.
Here is a brief look at the main features of the Panasonic FZ80 and Canon SX70 HS before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on in the following sections in order to better understand in detail how the Panasonic FZ80 and Canon SX70 HS compare and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
