Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 was released in the second quarter of 2015. It is a budget range SLR style bridge digital camera and is ideal for people who like something more powerful than a regular point and shoot but in the price of a digital compact camera. The DMC-FZ300 comes with exclusive 4K PHOTO technology which gives 30 fps 4K Ultra HD video recording that can be used to extract photos. There are 3 4K Photo modes available to you: 4K Burst with 8MP images extracted from 4K movies, 4K Burst Start/Stop with 4K burst recording and image extraction later and 4K Pre Burst which starts recording one second before and after the shutter button is clicked so as to capture memorable unpredictable moments.
This High Speed AF camera features Depth From Defocus technology to capture focused moments quickly. It is equipped with a 12.1 Megapixel effective High Sensitivity MOS image sensor with Venus Engine for flawless image processing. Featuring a 25-600mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens system (14 elements, 11 groups) lens, the camera provides an optical zoom of 24x and digital and intelligent zooms of 4x and 2x respectively along with full range F2.8 low light shooting functionality. Physically speaking, the device offers a sturdy construction with a splashproof and dustproof design for a perfect outdoorsy experience.
Lumix FZ300 has a 5-Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilizer Plus tilt correction system which also removes photo blur and can be turned off if not required. Its autofocus feature provides a variety of pre-programmed scene modes. It flaunts a 3.0-inch OLED free-angle touch LCD with 1,040,000-dot resolution, almost 100% view coverage and Live View Finder with 0.7x magnification.
