- 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.
