Amazingly Clear Zoom Microphone with Dolby® Digital Audio Quality
Recording video with the DMC-FZ70 is easy, but whats really amazing is the cameras ability to capture crisp, clear audio. The videos are accompanied by realistic Dolby® Digital Stereo* Creator. Sound quality is further improved with the DMC-FZ70 and the newly developed Wind Shield Zoom Microphone** that minimizes wind noise by approximately 70% compared to prior models. Externally, the sealed structure prevents wind from hitting the microphone directly, while the draft structure suppresses the retention of air internally. These combined with the mics ability to audio zoom in combination with the optical zoom results in sound that is clear and comfortable to listen to even if it was recorded on a windy day.
