4K Video and 4K Photo — Capture THAT MOMENT

THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.

• • 4K Photo feature extracts 8-megapixel photo out of a 4K video sequence up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s.


4K Photo Modes — Free Your Creativity

The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second:

4K Burst - burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.

4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - 4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.

4K Pre-Burst - 4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.


4K Video — More Detail Than Full HD

4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger* than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

* Native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
** When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.

25-600mm Zoom with Full-Range F2.8 Aperture

The 25-600mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens features full-range F2.8.for enhanced low light shooting throughout the entire zoom range.

Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design

The LUMIX FZ300 features a splashproof / dustproof rugged design with tight seals on every joint, dial and button, so it stands up to harsh weather conditions and challenging environments—from a marshy jungle to a windy desert.

High Speed Auto Focusing with DFD Technology

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus in one fast, continuous movement. In addition, continuous focus stability is enhanced when shooting video.

5-axis Correction / Tilt Correction

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus)* reduces blur from one-handed video shooting by compensating for 5 types of movement. The Level Shot Function detects the horizon line and maintains it, even if the camera is tilted.

* 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. works in video recording except for 4K video recording.

High Image Quality—Even in Low Light Conditions

The 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor in combination with the Venus Engine excels in diffraction compensation, yielding images that are crisp and free from artifacts associated with small aperture settings.

* Eight buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.

Everything in the Right Place

The LUMIX FZ300 features a snug, hand-fitting grip and an intuitive level of operation. The rear/side dials control the main aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to four function buttons.* In addition, a side lever on the left side of the lens barrel improves lens control.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by overall happy with camera very good quality, a little of a handful and rather large for anyone used to just the one-click cameras. February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Camera I found this camera relatively easy to use and take great photos, though I do wish there were more tips and tricks for people who aren't comfortable with all the usual photographer settings - would help me get 100% out of the camera. Occasional issues with the lens cover popping off, but overall I'm extremely happy with this camera. I have had no issues with this at all - no need for repair or anything else, battery life is good, and really cannot complain at all. February 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome cameras! These are great starter cameras for someone wanting to get into photography for a hobby but doesn't want to lay out 2 -3 thousand dollars for a slr system of cameras and lenses. The camera is user friendly. I don't photograph weddings anymore but someone experienced and with some extra lighting would be able to use one of these and provide the customer with an awesome completed album without hauling around a bunch of lenses. It makes a great travel camera without having to lug around a heavy body and extra lenses. While it's focusing isn't as fast as some of the higher priced slrs, it's more than adequate for the beginner or casual user. My biggest disappointment is that it doesn't have the 60x zoom like the older FZ70 which isn't available anymore. February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by FZ300K Camera Took this camera on our vacation to Europe. It has many, many features but is still easy to use. I never had to use the flash but still all pictures came out well developed and clear even when filming at night. I purchased this camera specifically for the long zoom and my wife wanted "point & shoot". We like the view finder to frame the pictures. The zoom focuses quickly at all distances. All controls are located where they are easy to find and use. The only difficulty so far is using the editing software supplied with the camera. We took all pictures in raw format. We are still trying to figure out how to edit the pictures and arrange them in a viewable, story telling fashion. December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality and versatile camera I'm an old SLR guy and wasn't sure I would like a "point and shoot." This camera can do almost everything I need. The pictures come out great too -- though the attached flash isn't powerful. December 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Camera for Personal Use_Travel Companion Rating after a few test shoots. I may update after longer use, but only on still photography use. The video on one test fire is clean, but not totally stable handheld. Photo quality (not including 4K photo grab...haven't tested) isn't going to win any awards, but it's fine for social media postings. Keep in mind, it is a small sensor so this is expected. The range of the lens is great, and the camera is light. Battery life was fine, didn't switch out to my spare, as after shooting just under 2,000 photos my first battery was still above 50 percent. Shot mostly using the LCD for these shots. The shutter was very responsive, fired when I wanted the shot, no lag. Used the pinpoint focus and multi-area focus, both were pretty good, with only a few times where I had to refocus on a subject. It was sprinkling for a football game, and when I got home there were water drops in the battery compartment. On a nature shoot, after 1 hour, and 42 degrees, the internal elements of the lens fogged up...that was irritating as it halted my shooting. Therefore it is not "WEATHERPROOF." Don't compare this to an SLR...its not an SLR. It does fine for what it is though. A good travel companion for personal use. December 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you are a casual user, this camera is great. This camera is only good if you aren't looking for superb quality in low light, or aren't too concerned with the world's sharpest photos. Cons- ...Low light 1080 60p the noise reduction will smudge the world out of your picture and make the footage look very bad. ...The in camera jpeg processor makes colors look unnatural and gelled with edge color. I was not able to test the RAW image quality, though I'd expect it to be much better provided you have the necessary software. ...Small sensor Pros- ...The Image stabilization - So good! ...The zoom - Amazing, actually useful even at full zoom thanks to the aforementioned stabilization. ...Really good in-body mic, but does have a mic port for even better quality if wanted. ...Splashproof - seriously, why do companies even make hand held electronics that aren't at least water resistant; it's so dumb not to. Splashproof makes sure you never have to worry about water.. unless you drop it. ...Great controls - the focus wheel might take some getting used to, but with the right technique, it can be altered during video with gradual change. ...Fully articulate screen - Seriously, take pictures above your head, below your knees, landscape and profile orientations are easy to do with the screen being usable at any angle. Conclusion - I ended up returning the one I bought, I was wanting usable 1080 60p video, and in low-ish light, the video was just unacceptable for me. 4k was fine in low light, but would create some ghosting and was also only 30fps. However, with the camera that I ended up with, I do miss having that fully articulated screen very much. December 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Lumix I've owned yet! I've owned the FZ100, 200, 1000 and now the 300. Pro 25-600MM in a nice size body WITH constant 2.8 !! This is a major plus for me The size and weight are good Fully articulated LCD that seems larger without the wide plastic frame With the 11.25.15 firmware update the focus after the fact or post focus is simple awesome and I can't wait to try it for focus stacking. I can use all my fz200 52mm filters and close up glass Finally the battery door hinges so that I can leave my tripod plate on and still get to the battery and card. That's a biggie. Metal tripod screw is nice and even nicer now that I can open the battery door with it still on the tripod RGB mode Just like the fz1000 I like the focus peaking I also like that again like the fz1000 is has multiple image, time lapse and some fun settings Not quite like the big focus ring on the fz1000 but the new MF roll control is easy to use Focus wheel is easier and more precise than the toggle on the fz200 LIke the 1000 I like the Zebra Pattern so if you're clipping highlights before you shoot 7 step auto bracket is a plus I don't use 4K video but 4K photo is awesome RGB lots of custom Fn buttons Can now use external wireless flashes Pano button is easier to get to Con Just like the fz1000- I just can't get the wi-fi to work w. my PC. I get to where it seems my computer then ask for a user name and password to who knows what. I've tried the computer user name, the modem, the workgroup all in combo with passwords and I've never gotten it right. Also you do have to turn on file sharing and turn off password protection of you PC to even get that far. To note They changed the lens hood some by making it shorter- not sure why. Flash/vignetting? I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the touch screen. I mean I use it on my laptop and phone and found on this camera it's kind of necessary. On the older push and rotate control dial you could push in and get to your setting then roll the dial to adjust. Now you have to know your Fn buttons or use the Q. Menu, then roll the dial. Being able to touch for focus here and pinch and pull is a nice touch (pun intended) So the post focus is totally cool and I'm glad to have it but a few things I've noticed in playing with it. It's not something to just leave on. It's something to turn on when you'll know you want it because there's a delay as it process the photo. Also on most of my photos the LCD doesn't show an in focus shot at time of capture. However it will focus in camera on whatever you tell it to afterward. It doesn't do as well on birds if they move and I think the 4K photo will be better for fast moving subjects. Still it IS great for photo stacking and works best on a tripod. I found it a little tough without going back to the full manual as to why a setting would be grayed out and had to search for what I was trying to set to on and couldn't because I'd turned something else off or on that affected what I was trying to do. I'm used to the fz200 and fz1000 and keep trying to depress the top control button to make my selection before rolling it- that's going to take some getting used to. I read online about starry night photos and guess I thought it was a custom scenery selection but the same night options were there as before. I came back in to read about 'starlight' and it's the camera in low light seeing stars and adjusting automatically. (pg 128 of the full manual) Not sure I'll notice it.... but their was a sensor change from CMOS to back-lit. They moved the mic - that might be nice on video Again a nice feature if you need it is that it's weather sealed December 1, 2015
