Digital Camera Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a Large Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 12 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to 17" x 12" at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/16000 to 1m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/16000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 features a 49-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Framing on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is performed via a 0.39" Built-in EVF with 1.4 Megapixels. This extra large EVF has 0.70X magnification and shows 100% coverage.
