Comprising the essentials needed to begin shooting, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 Digital Camera with Accessories Kit from B&H bundles the 4K-capable, long zoom camera with a memory card and a camera bag to carry and protect your gear.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 Digital Camera

Blending an all-in-one zoom, 4K video recording, and versatile still shooting capabilities, the Lumix DMC-FZ300 from Panasonic is a multi-faceted point-and-shoot optimized for the multimedia image maker. Featuring a 12.1MP High-Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor, the FZ300 is capable of recording up to 60 fps with an electronic shutter, 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, or 30 fps using the unique 4K Photo Modes. Working in low-light is benefitted by a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 along with 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ image stabilization to minimize camera shake during HD video recording. The 24x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens covers a 25-600mm equivalent focal length range and has a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture for consistent performance from wide-angle to super telephoto. For composing imagery, configuring shooting settings, and reviewing your photos and movies, a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot free-angle touchscreen LCD is available, as well as a 1.44m-dot OLED Live View Finder for eye-level monitoring. Able to handle nearly any image-related task, the FZ300 is a versatile camera well-suited to advanced photo and movie recording applications.

The body design features an ergonomic right-hand grip for added support when working with longer focal lengths, as well as dust and splashproof construction to suit working in inclement conditions. Benefitting both stills and movies, Panasonic's DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) AF system helps to quicken focusing speeds while a Starlight AF feature maintains focusing accuracy in low-light conditions. And benefitting both sharing and shooting control, Wi-Fi connectivity allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from smartphones and tablets.

12.1MP High-Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
A 12.1MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity MOS sensor pairs with the Venus Engine image processor to deliver fast overall performance and notable image quality to suit working in a wide variety of conditions. The sensor and processor combination help to compensate for diffraction to realize sharper, clearer imagery at smaller apertures as well as a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 to suit working in difficult lighting conditions. This processing engine also contributes to a fast 12-fps shooting rate at full-resolution with the mechanical shutter, 60 fps shooting with an electronic shutter, and 30-fps shooting at 8MP using the 4K Photo modes.
4K UHD Video Recording
In addition to the versatile still shooting modes, the FZ300 also supports recording 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100 Mbps in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p/60 is also supported, as well as slow-motion 720p/120 and 480p/240 recording settings.

A built-in stereo microphone can be used during recordings or an optional external microphone can be utilized via the 3.5mm jack for even clearer sound.
4K Photo Modes
Utilizing the 4K video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8MP stills at a 30-fps shooting rate:
  • 4K Burst: Just as with video recording, this mode will allow you to continuously record 8MP images at 30 fps for up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • 4K Pre-Burst: This mode is suitable for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record 8MP images at 30 fps one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • 4K Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the 4K video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8MP frame.

 

Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 24x Zoom Lens
The built-in Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offers a truly expansive 24x, wide-angle to super telephoto range of perspectives with a 25-600mm equivalent focal length. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions, especially at the longer focal lengths. Five aspherical elements, with a total of nine aspherical surfaces, as well as three extra-low dispersion elements help to control chromatic aberrations and produce sharp, clear imagery while a Nano Surface Coating helps to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast.

The lens' already impressive optical zoom range can be effectively doubled through the use of Intelligent Zoom, to achieve a total magnification of 48x. Extra Optical Zoom (EZ) settings are also available, which crop into the image to generate a narrower field of view, in order to produce 29.4x and 46.9x zoom magnifications at 8MP and 3MP resolutions, respectively. Standard digital zoom can be applied as well to, again, increase the effective zoom range by 4x.
5-Axis HYBRID Optical Image Stabilization+ and Level Shot
Helping to compensate for camera shake when recording HD movies, 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ is an advanced image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of blur when shooting one-handed video. It corrects for five types of camera shake that commonly affect more dynamic movement types that occur while moving when recording.

Also benefitting from the image stabilization system, a Level Shot Function detects the horizon line within scenes and helps to keep it level even if the camera is tilted.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • A 0.39" OLED Live View Finder features has an impressive 1.44m-dot resolution, 0.7x magnification, and 10,000:1 contrast ratio. An eye sensor is also incorporated into its design to activate the EVF, and deactivate the rear LCD, during use.
  • A larger means for image composition and playback, the 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear OLED monitor has a free angle, tilt and swivel design to support viewing from a variety of angles. It is also a touchscreen, which permits intuitive menu navigation and settings control.
  • The FZ300 features a durable design that incorporates extensive sealing at each joint, dial, and button to render it both splash- and dust-proof.
  • The ergonomic body design features a large right-hand grip, rear and side dials for shutter speed and aperture settings control, and four assignable function buttons for quick access to your most frequently used settings. Additionally, the lens features a two-speed zoom design and a left-handed lever for balanced overall handling.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to pair the FZ300 with smartphones or tablets running the Panasonic Image App for wireless image transferring and remote camera control.
Depth-from-Defocus AF Technology
For accelerated autofocus performance, DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position to benefit continuous shooting and movie recording modes. This contrast-detection type focus method also benefits subject tracking performance for maintaining sharp focus on moving subjects. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance in dim environments.

Benefitting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as Touch MF Assist for touch-to-focus operation.
Other Camera Features
  • A dedicated macro mode allows you to focus on subjects as close as 0.4" / 1cm away.
  • Raw image files can be processed in-camera for a more streamlined post-production workflow.
  • A mechanical shutter enables a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. and an electronic shutter function avails a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec. to better enable working in bright conditions and with wider aperture settings.
  • Creative Panorama mode allows you to create seamless panoramic imagery by simply panning about the scene to capture wide-field views.
  • A built-in pop-up flash can be used to provide additional illumination to scenes.
  • The included lithium-ion battery provides approximately 380 shots per charge when using the rear LCD monitor, or 360 shots per charge with the electronic viewfinder.
  • Create Control modes: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color, and Sunshine.

Panasonic DMC-FZ300 Reviews

New Camera

By Charles R
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-24

My trusty (but more than 10 year old) Sony SLT-A55V appeared to be on it's last legs, so I went looking for a replacement. At first I shied away from non-interchangeable lens cameras, but the 25mm to 600mm zoom on the Lumix DMC-FZ300 convinced me. And, of course, the excellent price didn't hurt. I am still learning about this camera, but already I am quite pleased. It is smaller, lighter and more capable than the old Sony. Surprisingly, the memory card provided will hold 10,000 photos at the resolution I normally shoot at. I still bought 2 more. This is an EXCELLENT camera for the non-professional but serious photographer.

I really like the lens, but camera not user friendly.

Since I am somewhat inept at photography terminology, the printed manual is somewhat over my head. The camera is complicated to figure out. It is not user friendly. I have made photos on automatic, that turned out well. I do like the lens. I haven't watched the CD manual as of yet. I sure hope it is easier to understand.

Excellent Bridge Camera

I love the zoom range on this camera and the fixed 2.8 focal length. More important than the camera for this review is that I bought it marked open box and it showed up with everything in the box and still in the plastic bags. Thanks, B&H!

FZ-300 - excellent camera

By Lars
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-01

The FZ-300 is a very impressive camera from the build quality, zoom range, flexibility and most importantly the resulting photos. The first photos taken were of a spider web covered with rain drops. In macro mode the camera delivered a photo with an amazing level of detail that that could not be observed with the naked eye. The results at full telephoto are great as well.

this is my 3rd Lumix DMC-FZ300

good bridge camera with a great lens moving 'down' to a bridge for travel and casual snaps takes some getting used to as with all new items, the instruction manual sb read carefully

Favorite for Versatility and Image Quality

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-26

I own three FZ series and several Olympus M43 cameras and the FZ300 is my favorite by far. The diopter adjustment slips out of focus on my FZ80, the max aperture drops 2 f-stops when zooming, increasing ISO and grain, LCD screen does not zoom or swivel and there is noticeable chromatic aberration. I don't even like the ELV with no manual switching, and a grainy image that doesn't fill viewfinder. I completely stopped using the FZ80 after buying the FZ300! I took the FZ300 to Costa Rica and had great results even in the rain and low light conditions. I never know what unexpected photo opportunities might arise, and this camera never fails to capture the moment. I'm over 80 years old and have no problem with camera's complexity which gives me the versatility I demand.
