LUMIX DMC-FZ300K Digital Camera w/ 4K Videos, 24x Zoom Lens


4K Video and 4K Photo Modes Capture That Moment


That moment you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again!
4K Photo extracts 8MP Photos out of a 4K Video up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s bandwidth.

4K Photo Modes; Free Your Creativity


The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second:

  • 4K Burst: burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed
  • 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop): 4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later
  • 4K Pre-Burst 4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments

4K Video; More Detail Than Full HD

4K videos (3,840 x 2,160) delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.
Native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels

High Speed Auto Focusing with DFD Technology

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus in one fast, continuous movement. In addition, continuous focus stability is enhanced when shooting video.

5-axis Correction / Tilt Correction

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus)* reduces blur from one-handed video shooting by compensating for 5 types of movement. The Level Shot Function detects the horizon line and maintains it, even if the camera is tilted.
