Anyone in the market for a 4K stills photo and 4K video point and shoot camera with telephoto capabilities should perhaps take a close look at the Panasonic Lumix FZ80 —especially when you consider it will retail for less than $400.
The FZ80 is in fact an update of the company’s existing FZ70 and houses the same 60x DC VARIO superzoom, but includes a new 18.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch High Sensitivity MOS sensor.
The lens itself is capable of 20mm wide-angle for landscapes while the 60x optic equates to a super long 1200mm. The maximum aperture range is f/2.8-5.9.
The array of 4K options is impressive for such a compact (130.2 x 94.3 x 119.2mm / weight 616 grams) and affordable imager. It shoots 8 megapixel JPEGs in multiple burst modes in 4K Photo mode. Switching to video it will capture 4K at 30p with a 100Mbps bitrate or Full-HD 1920x1080 videos at 60p.
