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.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clever modern camera. Had this about a month now and really impressed. I'm no professional nor even a particularly competent amateur but very happy with the results so far. Lots of different modes and technological assistance to cope with most situations. Nicely weighted device and not so large that you'll think "can I be bothered to carry that today". Battery life is /so/ much better than my previous compact zoom as well - technology has improved a lot in this respect. Glad I made the decision to upgrade. 07 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant for wildlife This camera is fantastic for wildlife photos the pictures are brilliant. 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 Bridge Camera So far, I'm very pleased with this camera. The bonus of the zoom lens means not having to cart around multiple lens. Bought this for general use but mainly for wildlife shots so zoom should come into its own. For the price, it seems to be a good buy so far. Checked out the professionals opinion and it received good reviews. 15 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lumix DMC-FZ72 I have just started using this camera and am still learning what it can do but so far I love it. The extra zoom is amazing and just what I need for taking pictures of wildlife. The close up works well for flowers. 23 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Love It Having had Lumix previously I wanted to stick to the model and make. This is an upgraded version and I just love it. Totally recommend it for quality and especially ease of use. 16 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great camera Excellent zoom with really sharp photograph. Great movies. Couldn't be better for the price 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic DMC-FZ72 Camera Excellent camera producing great results if properly set up. 60x zoom works reasonably well, really needs to be on a tripod though. Lots of menu options but could be improved by a remote cable release. Also good that it takes 55mm filters and accessories - a lens hood is normally needed if outdoors. 2omm wide angle very useful. 02 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Panasonic Lumix Bridge Camera I am a member of a Camcorder /Camera Club one of my friends in the club recommended this camera and after I read the reviews I decided to purchase it I find it easy to use and handle I have taken some lovely pictures with it and I look forward to having fun with it when I go on holiday I think it is a good buy 12 January 2016
