Our advice: From our own experience, we recommend SanDisk memory cards. The SanDisk Extreme Pro is fast enough for high-speed image sequences and 4K video:

Memory card for DMC TZ101 and PowerShot SX70 HS

The 64 GB Extreme will take up to 90 minutes of super high-res 4K video. For Full HD video we recommend the SanDisk Ultra.

DMC TZ101 vs PowerShot SX70 HS: The sensors

The DMC TZ101 features a 1" sized sensor, while the PowerShot SX70 HS uses a Compact sensor.

Boasting an area of 116mm² (0.19 sq.in.) the sensor of the DMC TZ101 is a lot larger than the PowerShot SX70 HS's chip at 28mm² (0.04 sq.in.). In most cases a larger sensor will yield better results in low light, a considerable advantage in many situations (think: interior images, dusk or dawn etc.), a clear disadvantage of the Compact format.

Advantage: Panasonic DMC TZ101

Our rating of the Panasonic DMC TZ101

Panasonic'c TZ101 (US: ZS100, UK: TZ100) is a portable superzoom with a 10x lens and a 1"-sized sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixel. The camera has a very comprehensive feature set: Wifi, five axis image stabilizer, 4K video. Panasonic also furnished an electronic viewfinder although the magnification stands at a mediocre 0.46x, a result of the small camera body. Continuous drive stands at up to thirty photos in 4K photo mode. The camera supports creating time-lapses and features a dedicated mode for panoramas.

For a longer zoom (30x) coupled with a compact sensor, see the Panasonic TZ91 (US: ZS70, UK: TZ90).
