Its 100Mbps quality is delivered in MP4 format for easy integration and maximum compatibility with existing workflows.
4K Photo Mode
A range of 4K photo features ensures you are equipped to capture any situation. The 4K Photo Mode is a handy alternative to the 10fps full resolution burst mode. It enables you to extract 8 megapixel stills from a 4K video stream equipping you with the ability to shuffle through the frames to pick the decisive moment in time and save it as a separate JPG file.
The Post Focus Mode also utilises the TZ-80s 4K capabilities to deliver the ability to capture a scene and decide the focal point later. It shoots an approximate 1 second video while automatically moving focus from the foreground to the background to cover the entire scene. Once the file is saved it's as simple as touching the area you want in focus during playback and saving the frame as a JPG.
30x Optical Zoom Lens
The wide-angle to telephoto lens delivers a formidable 30x optical zoom that can ramped up to 60x via Intelligent Zoom functionality. Suitable for a broad range of shooting scenarios the lens can handle everything from wide-angle landscapes to selfies, portraits and honing in on distant landmarks.

5-Axis Optical Image Stabiliser
A built-in 5-axis Optical Image Stabiliser complements the powerful zoom, reducing image blur and improving sharpness across the entire focal range. The stabiliser also works when shooting video*, delivering smooth footage even panning or walking.

Built-in WiFi enables easy connection with your compatible smartphone or tablet. Utilising the free Panasonic Image App enables instant sharing to your friends, family and favourite social networks. The app also delivers wireless camera control and transforms your smart device into remote viewfinder and remote control, allowing you to shoot from a distance.
