The Lumix DMC-FZ300 from Panasonic is a multi-faceted point-and-shoot optimized for the multimedia image-maker. the 24x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens covers a 25-600mm equivalent focal length range and has a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture for consistent performance from wide-angle to super-telephoto. Able to handle nearly any image-related task, the FZ300 is a versatile camera well-suited to advanced photo and movie recording applications. Benefitting both stills and movies, Panasonic's DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) AF system helps to quicken focusing speeds while a Starlight AF feature maintains focusing accuracy in low-light conditions. And benefitting both sharing and shooting control, Wi-Fi connectivity allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from smartphones and tablets. The sensor and processor combination help to compensate for diffraction to realize sharper, clearer imagery at smaller apertures as well as a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 to suit working in difficult lighting conditions. This processing engine also contributes to a fast 12-fps shooting rate at full-resolution with the mechanical shutter, 60 fps shooting with an electronic shutter, and 30-fps shooting at 8MP using the 4K Photo modes. the FZ300 also supports recording 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100 Mbps in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p/60 is also supported, as well as slow-motion 720p/120 and 480p/240 recording settings. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions, especially at the longer focal lengths. Five aspherical elements, with a total of nine aspherical surfaces, as well as three extra-low dispersion elements, help to control chromatic aberrations and produce sharp, clear imagery while a Nano Surface Coating helps to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast. The built-in Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offers a truly expansive 24x, wide-angle to a super-telephoto range of perspectives with a 25-600mm equivalent focal length. Standard digital zoom can be applied as well too, again, increase the effective zoom range by 4x. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance in dim environments. Creative Panorama mode allows you to create seamless panoramic imagery by simply panning about the scene to capture wide-field views. The included lithium-ion battery provides approximately 380 shots per charge when using the rear LCD monitor, or 360 shots per charge with the electronic viewfinder.
