Expanding on the innovation of the FZ200, the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is also capable of 4K ultra high definition which enables 4K Photo and 4K video recording. The stunningly fast f/2.8 aperture with 24x optical zoom (the equivalent of a 25-600mm in 35mm) makes it possible to clearly capture moving subjects at a high shutter speed even at a great distance, all in a splash/dust-proof rugged design. The 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and the new Venus Engine image processor enable users to shoot high quality images even at higher sensitivity, recording up to ISO 6400 with higher resolution and superior color reproduction.
The LUMIX FZ300 integrates a large, bright 1,440K-dot OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Live View Finder (LVF) with approx.100% field of view in 4:3 aspect ratio. It boasts 0.7x magnification and astonishingly high contrast at 10,000:1 together with excellent color reproduction. Adopting a static-type touch control system, the 3.0-in free-angle LCD features approx.100% field of view. The touch-control system immediately lets users set focus on the subject simply by touching the screen and releasing the shutter.
For even faster response and higher mobility, the LUMIX FZ300 integrates the Depth From Defocus technology (DFD) to achieve ultra-high-speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec. It contributes to high speed burst shooting at 12 fps. With Wi-Fi connectivity, users can connect the camera to their smartphone / tablet to expand the flexibility in shooting / storing / sharing images. (less)
