Panasonic DMC-FZ300 overview

  • 1Description

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 holster-style 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 a dust- and splash-proof 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 min. 59 sec., 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

Lumix DMC-FZ300 Digital Camera with Accessories Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade I have had several of Panasonic's FZ series of super-zoom cameras. The FZ300 is my latest and replaces my FZ200. Although there are a lot of similarities, the FZ300 is the better camera. I'm an engineer, so I run objective tests on my cameras. I would rate the FZ300 as being one full stop better on noise than the FZ200. So ISO 1600 is full printable at 8.5' x 11" if you set the in-camera settings properly. In addition I gained a more comfortable grip, a higher resolution EVF & LCD, and the ability to wirelessly control off-camera flashes. My 52 mm filters and close up lenses work, my LA7 adapter fits, my flashes work, my batteries fit, and my radio trigger works. Pretty much an improved, drop in replacement for the FZ200.
Date published: 2018-02-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, powerful, travel ready I was looking for a light camera that would allow me to replace my Nikon DSLR to travel with less equipment, but without losing manual controls or the ability to solve most of the photographic situations that appeared. The LUMIX FZ300 complies with all that and also is capable of shooting in 4K quality and allows me to go much further with its 600 mm. I'm happy with it.
Date published: 2017-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Long Zoom Point and Shoot for travel I bought this camera for travel, as my SLR gear is getting to be too much for those times. I am still learning about its capabilities, and am looking forward to great photos via its Leica lens. This came highly recommended by a friend.�� Time will tell.
Date published: 2017-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel camera I picked up this camera literally on the way to the airport for a birding trip to Costa Rica, so had no time to read up on or explore all the features and adjustable settings before the trip. I was looking for a long zoom bridge camera for under $500 and B&H had the FZ300 on sale for the price I wanted - perfect timing! The sale included a 32GB memory card and a case - a really good value, and everything you need to start off with. Since I had not read the manual beforehand, I simply set the dial to Intelligent Auto Plus and hoped for the best. Using the combination of the long zoom and the burst mode, the images did not disappoint. I was able to capture hummingbirds in flight in wonderfully crisp detail even when enlarged up to 4X. Resting hummingbirds showed excellent feather detail! Bracketing exposures and adjusting for colour for outdoor shots were quick and easy. As to be expected with a small sensor bridge camera, images did perform poorly in low light - there was a good deal of colour smearing. However, in moderate to bright light, images were super crisp with excellent, fine detail. Close-up images even had nice bokeh. I did not try using the video so can't comment on that. Better image control and quality can be achieved by using a wide variety of settings, including shooting in RAW mode. This camera feels great in the hand, very ergonomic, not too bulky or heavy. Its f2.8 25-600mm lens is perfect for getting close to wildlife, especially birds, and is very versatile. And the fact that it's weather-sealed makes it that much more awesome!�All in all, I am very pleased with the FZ300 and look forward to learning to take advantage of all its features (especially the manual settings!).
