Unmissable moments with 4K PHOTO
Thanks to 4K technology inside the LUMIX TZ80, 4K PHOTO allows you to capture the perfect moment in 30fps, and select your best photo after shooting. Shoot, select and save. With 4K PHOTO mode on the LUMIX TZ80, make moments, truly unmissable.
4K Video. Life in vivid detail
With the stunning power of 4K Video, the LUMIX TZ80 allows you to record your journey in up to 4x the quality of Full HD. More excitement, more detail and even more memories to look back on; again and again.
• When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.
Light Composition function synthesises the images by choosing and saving a brighter pixel. This makes it possible to produce more luxurious, dramatic image of situations such as fireworks or night scenery in camera with ease.
4K Live Cropping
4K Live Cropping enables unique video expressions that were previously difficult to record. Only the recording frame moves while the camera maintains a fixed position. This allows stable panning, and lets you zoom in on a subject that is not in the image's center position.
Shoot now, focus later
Imagine being able to decide exactly what you want in focus, even after you've taken the photo. The Post Focus function on the LUMIX TZ80 gives you the power to do just that. Simply capture the scene, review the image and touch the part of the photo you'd like to be pin sharp. It's simple, stunning and all inside the LUMIX TZ80.
Sometimes, harsh sunlight makes even the brightest camera screens difficult to see. The LUMIX TZ80 features a Live View Finder which automatically turns on when you lift the camera to your eye, so you can see every detail and capture the shot you're looking for.
The Control Ring also provides comfortable control.
In addition to giving you smooth manual control of the aperture, shutter speed, zoom and focus, it can be customised to handle your favourite settings.
High speed auto-focusing with DFD technology
Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between the items inside the frame and drives the focus of the lens in one fast, continuous movement. This system results in faster AF speeds up to 0.1 seconds and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 5 fps. It also increases the stability of continuous focusing when shooting video.
Focusing in low light conditions — Star Light AF
Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to set focus on the subject in low-light conditions such as moonlight even without AF assist lamp. Furthermore, the LUMIX TZ80 newly integrates the Starlight AF to let you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus by accurate calculation of the contrast value in a smaller AF zone.
5-axis correction / Tilt correction
The HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) + with 5-axis correction* gives you blur-less one-handed video shooting.
It detects and compensates for the camera's 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation.
The Level Shot Function* detects the image's horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted. It takes stable video even in high-angle, blind recording.
* HYBRID O.I.S.+ and Level Shot Function do not work in 4K video recording.
