Overview

4K Video and 4K Photo — Capture THAT MOMENT

THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.

** 4K Photo feature extracts 8-megapixel photo out of a 4K video sequence up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s.

4K Photo Modes — Free Your Creativity

The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second:

4K Burst
Burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.

4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop)
4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.

4K Pre-Burst
4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.

4K Video — More Detail Than Full HD

4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger* than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

* Native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
** When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.

25-600mm Zoom with Full-Range F2.8 Aperture

Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design

The LUMIX FZ300 features a splashproof / dustproof rugged design with tight seals on every joint, dial and button, so it stands up to harsh weather conditions and challenging environments—from a marshy jungle to a windy desert.

High Speed Auto Focusing with DFD Technology

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus in one fast, continuous movement. In addition, continuous focus stability is enhanced when shooting video.

5-axis Correction / Tilt Correction

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus)* reduces blur from one-handed video shooting by compensating for 5 types of movement. The Level Shot Function detects the horizon line and maintains it, even if the camera is tilted.

* 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. works in video recording except for 4K video recording.

High Image Quality—Even in Low Light Conditions

The 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor in combination with the Venus Engine excels in diffraction compensation, yielding images that are crisp and free from artifacts associated with small aperture settings.

* Eight buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.

Everything in the Right Place

The LUMIX FZ300 features a snug, hand-fitting grip and an intuitive level of operation. The rear/side dials control the main aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to four function buttons.* In addition, a side lever on the left side of the lens barrel improves lens control.

* Four buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.
