60x optical zoom and 18.1-megapixel in Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ82
The new Lumix FZ82 gives users better manual operation over photo and video recording. The FZ82 features the Lumix DC Vario 20mm ultra wide-angle lens with a 60x optical zoom and comes with USB charging to allow an even quicker charge. The newly integrated 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and advanced image processor Venus Engine achieve high-speed response and high-quality images even in sensitive recording. Perfect for Macro, the Lumix FZ82 is also capable of 1cm Macro Shooting.
For an even faster response and higher mobility, the Lumix FZ82 boasts a high-speed, high-precision AF with DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology,which shortens the focusing time. It calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels at a high 240-fps signal exchange speed. As a result, the Lumix FZ82 achieves an AF of approximately 0.09sec. This benefit increases as the focal length grows.
The Lumix FZ82 also offers high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects in sharp focus. Thanks to the touch-control system, users can quickly focus on the subject and even release the shutter with touch operation to capture unmissable photo opportunities. The Lumix FZ82 records smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K videos in 3840x2160 resolution at 25p (50Hz Area). The powerful 60x optical zoom and POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode suppresses blurring even in video recording.
Users can enjoy 4K PHOTO shots and a variety of derivative functions, such as the new Light Composition and 4K Live Cropping. The Lumix FZ82 also integrates a 1,040K-dot rear monitor with touch-control system. Together with the 0.2-inch 1,170K-dot EVF (Electronic View Finder), users can capture subjects in clear focus. It also includes Wi-Fi connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image-sharing with easy operation. ■
