Have the power of a professional in your pocket with Panasonic’s super-zoom DMC-TZ80. Boasting 4K video, 18.1MP and extraordinary 30x optical zoom, this tiny package yields massive results. The brand’s crystal-clear LEICA lens is backed by a mighty MOS sensor so the depth-of-field is pin sharp, and the sophisticated Wi-Fi makes wireless control super-easy. With other features like the post-focus, HYBRID optical image stabiliser and intuitive Live View Finder, this camera is a sublime feat of portable photography.
Obscene Compact Power The TZ80’s 1/2-3-type MOS sensor delivers delightful colour and clarity in any light. Filled with 18.1MPs, your snaps will be rich and beautiful from dusk till dawn. All of this power is channelled with rapid speed through the brand’s state-of-the-art Venus image processor. This way, the pocket-sized camera will supply luscious shots in an instant.
Tailor Your Shots With The LEICA Zoom Lens With 30x optical zoom, 60x intelligent zoom and 4x digital zoom, you’ll get a crisp shot of your subject wherever you are. The lens’ f3.3 – 6.4 aperture range gives you space to experiment with background/subject separation too, letting you tailor your shot to landscapes or portraits. It also features the HYBRID Optical Image Stabiliser – using 5-axis correction to deliver crisp, blur-free video. Such super-powered flexibility will let you go as far as your creativity will take you.
Dazzling 4K Video 4K has four-times the pixels of HD and this camera lets you capture your memories in this ultra-crisp resolution. Shoot 4K video at 25fps to give your adventures even more detail and pop-out beauty. There’s even a 4K Photo function so you can give your stills the Ultra-HD treatment.
All-Time Control Before or after you’ve taken your shot, this camera keeps you in the driver’s seat. The innovative Post-Focus mode lets you decide what’s in focus after you’ve taken the photo. This way, you can optimise any part of a picture when you’re reviewing a day’s haul. The 0.2” Live View Finder, which automatically turns on when you hold it up to your eyes, manual control rings and vivid 3” LCD Touch Screen give you complete control as you line up your shots.
Wi-Fi Wonder With built-in Wi-Fi, this camera can connect to your smart phone or tablet wirelessly, letting you share your shots in an instant. You can even download the Panasonic Image App (iOS & Android) to control the TZ80 remotely.
Add Flair With Filters Give your work added art with this camera’s wealth of effects.
