Your SLR has an optical viewfinder which is not able to display an image after it's been recorded - thus the need for the rear LCD panel to display every image, both immediately after shooting and later via pressing the little green / blue review button

ALL cameras with electronic viewfinders offer the user the choice of EVF or LCD use for photo taking, and so the image is returned to that screen after taking. And later on, via the LCD screen when the green/blue review button is used as well

Does this help at all?

Hi Phil.

Yes i get you now , not sure why i thought all cameras acted like my slr . I had it in my head that the picture was always able to be reviewed on the lcd .
Appreciate the help

Here's showing the zoom capability of the FZ70's 60X.

The first image, direct your view over the observatory to the far side of the lake.

The second image is of that area.

Both handheld.

These images were directly out of the camera, no sharpening, etc.

I haven't used the tripod as of yet, but am anxious to see the results.

Thank you so much posting the photo's Carol and Forzahibs.
I am knocked out by the quality of your pics, handheld at full 60x zoom, and straight out of the camera too! Especially the pic from the otherside of the lake.
I am so envious ! My FZ150 at full 24x zoom produces a slight mottled effect to the pics (or perhaps it is the person behind the camera !).
