The Ultimate All-Rounder

The Panasonic FZ80 is the perfect camera for capturing life's most memorable moments. Its 18.1 megapixel sensor is combined with an extraordinary 60x optical zoom lens and ultra-sharp 4K video recording to make it the ultimate all-rounder.

18.1 Megapixel Sensor

The 18.1 megapixel High-Sensitivity MOS sensor delivers sharp results with excellent clarity, contrast and true-to-life colour reproduction. Paired with the Venus Engine image processor the sensor offers a maximum ISO6400 sensitivity for great results, even when the lighting is less than ideal. The powerful image processor also offers a lightning-fast 10 frames per second burst mode to capture ultra-fast action sequences.

20-1200mm 60x Optical Zoom Lens

A DC Vario 60x optical telephoto zoom lens delivers a 35mm focal range of 20-1200mm making it suitable for landscapes, portraits, macro, sports, wildlife, ceremonies, concerts, festivals and much more.

122x Extra Zoom

Use the 'Extra Optical Zoom' setting to really lock-in on far away subjects. Offering a total magnification of up to 122x, this mode crops into the image to generate a narrower field of view at 84x (9MP) or 122x (4.5MP).

Macro Mode

A macro mode is also available, enabling you focus from as close as 1cm from your subject for ultra-detailed imaging potential.

Detail Rich Images

Six aspherical and three extra-low dispersion elements are used into the construction of the lens to deliver detail rich results with excellent contrast and clarity across the entire zoom range.

POWER Optical Image Stabiliser

Further bolstering its image quality is a POWER OIS Optical Image Stabilisation system that helps minimise camera shake for a sharper, clearer images, especially when shooting in low-light or at the telephoto end of the zoom. The image stabiliser also works when filming video, minimising camera shake and smoothing out handheld footage.

4K Ultra-HD Video Recording

4K Ultra-High Definition recording at your disposal with the push of a button. Capture unexpected moments in 4K quality quickly and easily with the dedicated video record button to ensure fleeting moments aren't missed. No more fumbling with dials and menus, simply hit the record button and start shooting.

Post-Production Versatility

Aside from superior clarity, 4K Video also has other benefits. For more advanced users the 4K video capabilities offer improved post production versatility, allowing you to pan or crop within the 4K frame for ultra-smooth panning and stabilisation effects.

4K Photo @ 30fps

The 4K capabilities of the FZ80 can also be used to capture decisive moments during fast moving action. The 4K Photo mode equips you with the ability to shoot 4K video at 30fps and scroll through each frame during playback to select the exact moment you want to freeze. You can then export that frame as an 8MP JPEG file, ready to be printed or uploaded to your favourite social networking platforms.

Shoot Now, Focus Later

4K also facilitates a Post Focus function, enabling you to capture a scene and decide the focal point later. Once the scene has been captured in post focus mode, simply touch the point that you want to appear in focus and export it as an 8MP JPEG image.

3-inch Touchscreen LCD and 1.166 Million-dot EVF

The rear of the camera houses a bright 3-inch 1.04 million-dot LCD touchscreen that offers intuitive image composition and natural playback and menu navigation. For critical focus or extremely bright environments a 1.166 million-dot electronic viewfinder can be used for a more traditional shooting experience.

Built-in Wi-Fi for Instant Photo Sharing

With integrated WiFi and the ability to connect to the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet,you can remotely operate the camera, geotag location information to photos via GPS and to instantly share images and moments on social media platforms.

Perfect for Travel

The perfect travel companion, the battery for the Panasonic Lumix FZ80 can be charged via USB while inside the camera, adding the ability to charge the camera via a USB power bank while on the road and eliminating the need for bulky battery chargers and adapters when travelling overseas.
