Product information

The powerful Panasonic DMC-FZ72 digital bridge camera strikes an ideal balance between versatility and performance. It pairs an advanced processing engine with a precision-engineered 20mm wide-angle lens for faster, sharper shooting. When a picture just won’t do, you can switch to crisp Full HD video capture, and thanks to the 60x optical zoom - you’ll always be in the middle of the action.

 

Key benefits:

  • This camera combines Panasonic’s Venus Engine with a 16.1 megapixel MOS sensor. The result is sharper, more detailed shots, with less noise in low light situations.
  •  

  • A 60x optical zoom ensures that you don’t miss a beat. This can even be pushed to 120x in digitally enhanced Intelligent Zoom mode.
  •  

  • Record Full HD 1080p in the popular AVCHD and MP4 formats and watch your movies back on a monitor or HD TV through the mini HDMI port. Your videos will even boast high quality Dolby Digital sound.
  •  

  • The POWER OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration. In addition, the 60x optical zoom with POWER OIS is available in video recording too
  •  

  • Sound quality is improved thanks to the Wind Shield Zoom Microphone that minimises wind noise.
  •  

  • The DMC-FZ72 is equipped with a 0.2-inch EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) for flawless portraiture. Thanks to the 60fps frame rate, image lag is minimised making it suitable for shooting fast-moving subject under strong sunlight.
  •  

  • Includes charger, battery pack, USB cable, shoulder strap, CD-ROM, lens cap, lens cap string and PHOTOfunSTUDIO software.
