4K video has now spread from TVs to other imaging products, such as camcorders and LUMIX digital cameras. Quadruple the resolution of Full HD, it promises superb image quality. Also, 4K offers exciting editing possibilities -- by cropping parts equivalent to Full HD from 4K images, you can create zoom shots and panning from a single shot. The 4K Photo function allows you to capture a still image with 8 Mpx equivalent resolution from 4K video. Use of this function makes it easy to crop individual video frames as high-resolution still images. In addition, using the newly incorporated 4K Photo Mode, you can easily make picture quality setting to the optimum parameter for photo shooting.
