The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a feature packed 12.1-megapixel superzoom hybrid camera perfect for photographing or recording your favourite memories whether you’re out travelling or on a family weekend adventure. The Lumix camera was upgraded from the already powerful 2012 Panasonic DMC-FZ200 with a host of improved features.
Leica Superzoom Lens with Fixed F2.8 Aperture
Featuring an extended 24x superzoom range from 25-600mm, the Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens can photograph wide environmental and landscape photos, close up portraits, macros (as close as 1cm) and distant horizons with ease. The bright maximum aperture of F2.8 is available throughout the entire zoom range, giving users the ability to use shallow depth of field for beautifully isolated subjects.
Powerful Image Stabilisation Technology
5-Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilisation Plus allows users to product photographs and images that are stable and blur free even when shot handheld.
MOS Sensor and Venus Engine Image Processing
A High Sensitivity MOS Sensor is paired with the Venus Engine image processor to provide up to ISO 6400 sensitivity to continue shooting even in low light situations. Images can be captured in either RAW or JPEG formats, giving users SLR-like post-processing flexibility.
Advanced 4K Video and Photo Features
An impressive 4K video offering allows users to record their favourite memories in ultra-high resolution (QFHD 3,840 x 2,160) at a cinematic 24p, 100Mbit/s.
Panasonic’s innovative 4K Photo feature makes it easier than ever to capture the perfect moment. Extract a frame from an ultra-fast 30 frames per second burst sequence on the camera and save it as an 8-megapixel photograph (4K Burst, 4K Burst Start/Stop mode). Where full resolution is required, the camera fires as quickly as 12 frames per second, and is ready to shoot within 0.88 seconds of start-up. Never miss a moment!
4K Pre-Burst records a sequence one second before and after the shutter button is pressed, ensuring even unpredictable shots are easily taken.
Post Focus Function
A revolutionary Post Focus option (may require firmware update) allows photographers to capture a scene and decide the focal point later. The Post Focus combines the camera's existing Depth from Defocus autofocusing and movie capabilities to record roughly one second of MP4 video at 30 frames per second. During this recording, the camera's autofocusing system scans the lens around the subject, moving from the foreground to the background to cover the entire scene. In playback mode the focal point can then be selected by simply touching the point that you want to appear sharp. The camera automatically selects the optimum frame and gives you the option to export it as a 8 megapixel JPEG image.
High Speed Auto Focusing with DFD
Panasonic’s Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology provides lightning fast autofocus speeds down to 0.09 seconds, when used with the electronic viewfinder. Capture even the fastest moving sports and action!
OLED Electronic Viewfinder
A high resolution (1,440k-dot) OLED Live View Finder with 10000:1 contrast helps users compose and frame their images even in strong sunlight. The large 0.7x magnification of the OLED LVF lets users see fine details and assess focus. Featuring a 3.0-inch 1,040k dot rear screen with tilt and swivel movements, users have the freedom to find unique perspectives and angles for their photo and video footage. Touchscreen functionality makes it even easier to control the camera and intuitively take wonderful pictures.
With integrated WiFi and the ability to connect to the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet users gain the ability to remotely operate the camera, geotag location information to photos via GPS and to instantly share images and moments on social media platforms.
Durable and Environment Sealed Design
The rugged splash proof and dust proof design of the Panasonic FZ300 ensures that users can continue shooting even in adverse weather conditions or during outdoor adventures.
