-Featuring the latest 4K Photo and 4K Video Recording
Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa (PMMAF) has introduced a new powerful zoom camera DMC-FZ300 with 4K ultra high definition enabling 4K Photo and 4K video recording; and F2.8 aperture for effectively capturing images of moving objects.
“DMC-FZ300 is perfect for outdoor field photography as it captures fleeting photo opportunities with precision,” says Hitesh Ojha, Deputy General Manager, Digital Imaging and Audio Video, PMMAF. “The stunningly fast F2.8 aperture in 600 mm has never been achieved by any digital compact camera except its predecessor DMC-FZ200. The aperture makes it possible to capture moving subjects clearly with fast shutter speed even if they are in far distance. The DMC-FZ300 is the ultimate hybrid bridge camera integrating outstanding optical performance in a splash/dust-proof rugged design.”
The LUMIX’s popular FZ series packs a powerful optical zoom and superior controllability including manual operation over photo and video recording. The DMC-FZ300 newly integrates a large, bright OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) LVF (Live View Finder) with magnification and astonishingly high contrast together with excellent color reproduction.
1. Stunning Image Quality from 25mm Ultra Wide Angle to 600mm Tele End
The camera’s full range F2.8 enables capturing a moving subject which is in far distance clearly with fast shutter speed. The O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration enabling capture of clear, sharp image from wide to tele.
2. 4K Capability Bringing the Evolution in Videography
The DMC-FZ300 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840×2160 at 25p (50Hz) or 24p in MP4 in addition to the full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 50p (50 Hz) videos in AVCHD Progressive or MP4 (MPEG-4 / H.264) format with practical full-time AF.
3. Rugged Design and Better Control
To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the DMC-FZ300 adopts splash / dustproof rugged design passing the stringent test quality standard of DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) flagship cameras despite its structure with a range of moving parts.
The DMC-FZ300 newly integrates a large, bright 1,440K-dot OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) LVF (Live View Finder) with approx.100% field of view in 4:3 aspect. It boasts 0.7x magnification and astonishingly high contrast at 10,000:1. Suppressing both blown highlights and blocked shadows, the LVF in DMC-FZ300 assures outstanding viewability under any circumstances. The display time lag is minimized dramatically compared with the predecessor DMC-FZ200. The image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is switched automatically with the eye sensor on the LVF.
4. High Speed Response and Stunning AF Performance
For even faster response and higher mobility, the DMC-FZ300 newly integrates a dedicated linear motor into the focus system to achieve ultra-high-speed AF. In addition, the Light Speed AF is further enhanced with an adoption of DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology which even shortens the time to set focus. Together with the quick start-up of approx. 0.88 sec, the DMC-FZ300 never lets photographers miss fleeting shooting opportunities.
5. Other Features
The DMC-FZ300 integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity and pairing the camera and the smartphone/tablet is quick and easy. It is capable of shooting images in RAW and develop them in camera. The Panorama Shot function allows shooting horizontal/vertical wide panoramic image by shooting sequent pictures easily.
