A dedicated Control Ring gives smooth control of settings such as zoom, aperture and shutter speed, allowing you to concentrate on lining up the prefect shot. Similarly, a 3.0-inch 1040k-dot touch screen makes navigating menus and selecting your preferred setting incredibly quick and easy, even in bright sunlight. The Panasonic compact zoom camera incorporates an 18 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor, allowing you to capture even the finest details of your travels. Whether taking pictures on a sunny beach or during a candlelit dinner for two, the LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s exceptional low light performance ensures crisp, clear and natural results with minimal noise.
Panasonic 4K camera features
Capture those perfect moments in stunning 4K quality with the new LUMIX TZ80. The TZ80’s 4K video capability enables you to record and relive all those special moments in the very highest quality. With four times the resolution of Full HD, videos reproduce the breathtaking colour and detail of every scene, an experience second only to being there in person. The Panasonic camera offers smooth, high quality video recording in 4K 3840x2160 at 25 fps in MP4, as well as high-resolution Full HD 1,920x1,080 50p videos in AVCHD. For the first time in a travel camera, Panasonic’s 4K Photo function allows you to extract an 8-megapixel still from 4K video (30fps) with amazing precision. The feature provides the perfect solution for capturing those fleeting moments, whether it’s timing the kids jumping into a pool or a dolphin breaching the waves.
Another new addition to the 2016 Panasonic LUMIX TZ range is the Post-Focus feature, which allows you to select the focal point of your picture, even after it’s taken. The LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s outstanding autofocus capability calculates the distance between the camera and the subject, capturing the optimal focus for 49 individual areas within each frame. Once the photo is taken, you simply select the precise area you want to focus on - for example your family in the foreground, or the stunning scenery behind them. What’s more, with the option to export multiple photos from a single shot, you’ll never have to choose between the two.
