In this review, we will be comparing ZS70 and ZS80, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Panasonic. Panasonic ZS70 was introduced to market in April 2017 and Panasonic ZS80 was launched in February 2018. There is 14 months difference between ZS70 and ZS80 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 ZS70's sensor is 1/2.3" sized whereas Panasonic ZS80 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 243 cameras in this class, Panasonic ZS70 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 65 and Panasonic ZS80 is ranked #5
