The Panasonic LUMIX DMC- FZ82 Digital Camera offers 4K video recording, an impressive 60x optical zoom lens and 4K Photo Mode in a portable, user-friendly body. With its 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and versatile 20-1200mm f2.8-5.9 lens, the FZ72 can capture everything from wide-angle to distant subjects, and everything in between. Additional features include full HD 1080p video recording, 10 fps in full-resolution, 6 fps with continuous AF and full manual control.
The newly integrated 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and advanced image processor Venus Engine achieve high-speed response and high-quality images even in sensitive recording. Perfect for Macro, the LUMIX FZ82 is also capable of 1cm Macro Shooting.
For an even faster response and higher mobility, the LUMIX FZ82 boasts a high-speed, high-precision AF with DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology , which shortens the focusing time. It calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels at a high 240-fps signal exchange speed. As a result, the LUMIX FZ82 achieves an AF of approximately 0.09 sec . This benefit increases as the focal length grows.
The LUMIX FZ82 also offers high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects in sharp focus. Thanks to the touch-control system, users can quickly focus on the subject and even release the shutter with touch operation to capture unmissable photo opportunities.
The LUMIX FZ82 records smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K videos in 3840x2160 resolution at 25p(50Hz Area).The powerful 60x optical zoom and POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode suppresses blurring even in video recording. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO shots and a variety of derivative functions, such as the new Light Composition and 4K Live Cropping. For more creative freedom, Creative Control and Creative Panorama options are available.
The LUMIX FZ82 features the stunningly versatile LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra wide-angle lens with a 60x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm) making it possible to capture dynamic landscapes, wild animals and birds from a distance - both as photos and video footage. The 20mm ultra wide-angle lens captures an approx. 140% wider angle of view compared with a 24mm angle of view. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration both in photo and video recording.
Intelligent Zoom is included with the LUMIX FZ82, which extends the zoom ratio up to 120x equivalent, maintaining high picture quality even when combining a digital zoom. In addition, the zoom ratio can be further extended when combining Intelligent Zoom with the Tele Conversion Lens DMW-LT55 (sold separately), which is able to clearly capture the cratered surface of the moon.
The 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor is newly-integrated into the LUMIX FZ82. Together with the high-performing image processing LSI Venus Engine, it elevates the response, sensitivity and image quality to an even higher level. Incorporating high-speed digital signal output technology, the FZ82 shoots 10 (AFS) / 6 (AFC) fps in full resolution with a mechanical shutter.
Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO shots with the LUMIX FZ82. 4K PHOTO lets the user capture unmissable photo opportunities at 30 fps by extracting the best frame from a 4K burst file to save as a photo. Plus, multiple images can be automatically saved as 4K PHOTO shoots all at once. A maximum of 150 frames in five seconds can be saved following a designated frame.
It also comes with the Post Focus function, which enables users to select the in-focus area after shooting. This is especially helpful in macro shooting where strict focusing is required for changing expressions by changing the focused subject. This function has been developed by combining the high-speed, high-precision auto focus function with 4K technology. Both Post Focus and Focus Stacking can be activated quickly with the dedicated button on the top panel.
The LUMIX FZ82 enables 4K Live Cropping in video recording to achieve stable panning or zooming. Thanks to its digital operation, panning and zooming images are smooth because it does not physically move the zoom lens.
A variety of video recording options are also available for users to choose from - High Speed Video, Time Lapse and Stop Motion Animation. High Speed Video records subjects in fast motion at 100fps (50Hz Area / FHD).
Full manual control is available with LUMIX FZ82 to enjoy more creative photography. The design of the grip has also been re-engineered for stable holding during extended shooting.
