30x Optical Zoom in Ultra Compact Body

Crystallising its optical technologies, Panasonic succeeded in integrating 24mm ultra wide-angle 30x zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 24-720mm) in slim, flat body. It lets you capture a variety of scenes from dynamic landscapes to people or animals distant away.

HYBRID O.I.S.+ and Level Shot Function

The HYBRID O.I.S.+ for video recording with 5-axis correction detects and effectively compensates for the camera’s 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. The Level Shot Function detects the horizontal line of the recording image and keeps it even if the camera is tilted. It lets you take stable video even in blind recording such as shooting from high angle.

Built-in Live View Finder

This camera comes equipped with a 0.2-inch LVF (Live View Finder) with 200K-dot equiv. resolution and 100% field of view. It ensures stable framing and high visibility of live view images even at high magnification and under strong sunlight. As an option, it can be set to 60 fps to smoothly display fast-moving subjects.

Easy Wi-Fi Connection with NFC / QR Code

This camera integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity with NFC technology to enjoy flexible shooting and instant image sharing with easy operation. You can connect the camera with a smartphone / tablet by just placing them nearby and follow the simple guidance. Setting-up is extremely easy and finishes within a few seconds.

Even if a smartphone / tablet is incompatible with NFC, it can be easily connected to the camera by just scanning the QR code displayed on the camera monitor.

*To use this feature, it is recommended to update “Panasonic Image App” to the latest version.

High Speed Response

High speed digital signal output technology is integrated to realize high speed consecutive shooting and full-HD video recording. It lets you shoot 10 fps in 18.1-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF.The actuator for the AF lens motor achieves 240fps high speed AF drive, resulting in higher speed AF by approx. 20% at wide and 30% at tele end*. It also contributes to the quick start-up and Light Speed AF to catch the most fleeting shooting opportunities.

18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor

The 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is integrated in the camera to realize both high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. The superior NR (Noise Reduction) system in the Venus Engine enables noise reduction to take place without missing low-frequency noise in its large detection area. It results in the high sensitivity image recording even at ISO6400 (extended).

RAW Format Recording

This camera complies with recording image in RAW. The software SILKYPIX Developer Studio 4.1 SE allows dramatically higher quality image conversion from RAW to JPEG. Even the images shot at high a ISO setting can be produced sharply with minimum noise.
