Product information

With an ultra wide-angle lens, powerful optical zoom and superior controllability, Panasonic's Lumix FZ82 is a hugely versatile bridge camera that produces awesome image and movie quality. Zoom in from amazing distances or try up-close macro photography, all kept super-sharp with powerful optical image stabilisation. 4K UHD resolution means your videos are stunningly lush and detailed, and you can select the perfect still from your footage with the 4K Photo feature. With fast autofocus and built for hands-on, manual use, the FZ82 is the ideal camera for capturing amazing moments both near and far.

Superb Sensor
An 18.1 megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor captures the image with incredible detail and sharpness, while the refined Venus Engine processes the data at amazing speed with rich colour, contrast and tone gradation. It ensures the highest quality image, even in sensitive recording, so it's perfect for zooming in on the detail from afar, and for macro photography. And a high ISO sensitivity ensures pictures look just as good when shooting in low light conditions.

Powerful Zoom Lens
The powerful LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra wide-angle lens offers a 60x optical zoom (extendable to 120x with intelligent zoom) so you can hone in the action from an amazing distance. Or if you want to shoot in extreme close up, the FZ82 is brilliant at macro photography, focussing as close as 1cm from the lens. POWER Optical Image Stabilisation ensures your shots are always blur-free, and applies to video too.

4K Video
With a resolution of 3840x2160 (at 25p), your video footage is always reliably smooth and breathtakingly detailed, while various recording options are available for extra adventurous shots, e.g. High Speed, Time Lapse and Stop Motion.

4K Photo
With 4K Photo you can select the perfect shot from a 30 frames per second burst file to save that perfect composition as a high quality still image, or utilise 4K Live Cropping.

Awesome Autofocus
High precision autofocus uses Depth from Defocus technology to calculate the focus point with amazing speed and accuracy. The FZ82's autofocus speed has been refined to just 0.09sec. And the Post Focus feature allows you to choose the in-focus area after shooting, a neat feature in any photo, but especially handy in macro shooting where fine adjustments have a big effect on the overall image.

Wi-Fi Connectivity
With built-in Wi-Fi it's easy to connect wirelessly with your smart device, for easy sharing of your work.

Manual Control
The grip has been re-engineered over the previous model, and the whole camera has been constructed to give full manual control over both still and movie recording, giving a huge range of creative shooting options. The Live Viewfinder allows you to capture subjects in clear focus, and the rear touch screen gives easy hands-on operation and shot preview options.
