The new TZ model manages to pack outstanding performance and a host of practical features into its lightweight chassis. The 18M sensor is ideal for taking high quality photos in all conditions, and its 4K capability means that your favourite travel memories can be recorded in stunning detail. What’s more, the LUMIX DMC-TZ80 also features a 30x Zoom LEICA lens, so you’ll never be out of range for that perfect holiday shot.
Colour, clarity and powerful zoom
The camera incorporates an 18M high sensitivity MOS sensor, allowing you to capture even the finest details of your travels. Whether taking pictures on a sunny beach or during a candlelit dinner for two, the LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s exceptional low light performance ensures crisp, clear and natural results with minimal noise. The sensor complements a powerful Venus engine to reproduce breathtaking colour that remains accurate to the composition you saw through the lens.
The LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s outstanding optical capability is underpinned by a high-end LEICA lens with 30x Zoom (24-720mm), for performance that far outweighs its compact body. The camera allows you to get closer to the action, without disturbing the subject – perfect for pictures and videos of wildlife, or more natural shots of friends and family.
Capture those perfect moments in stunning 4K
The LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s 4K video capability enables you to record and relive all those special moments in the very highest quality. With four times the resolution of Full HD, videos reproduce the breathtaking colour and detail of every scene, an experience second only to being there in person.
The camera offers smooth, high quality video recording in 4K 3840x2160 at 25 fps in MP4, as well as high-resolution Full HD 1,920x1,080 50p videos in AVCHD.
Panasonic has also utilised 4K to help take photo accuracy to a new level. For the first time in a travel camera, Panasonic’s 4K Photo function allows you to extract an 8-megapixel still from 4K video (30fps) with amazing precision. The feature provides the perfect solution for capturing those fleeting moments, whether it’s timing the kids jumping into a pool or a dolphin breaching the waves.
Another new addition to the LUMIX TZ range is the Post-Focus feature, which allows you to select the focal point of your picture, even after it’s taken. The LUMIX DMC-TZ80’s outstanding autofocus capability calculates the distance between the camera and the subject, capturing the optimal focus for 49 individual areas within each frame. Once the photo is taken, you simply select the precise area you want to focus on – for example your family in the foreground, or the stunning scenery behind them. What’s more, with the option to export multiple photos from a single shot, you’ll never have to choose between the two.
Hone your camera skills
If you’re looking to develop your photographic skills, the LUMIX DMC-TZ80 provides extensive and easy-to-use manual settings. A dedicated Control Ring gives smooth control of settings such as zoom, aperture and shutter speed, allowing you to concentrate on lining up the prefect shot. Similarly, a 3.0-inch 1040k-dot touch screen makes navigating menus and selecting your preferred setting incredibly quick and easy, even in bright sunlight.
Share your memories
Once you’ve selected your favourite holiday snaps on the LUMIX DMC-TZ80, you can share them with friends and family with the press of a button. Simply connect to a smartphone or tablet to share your pictures on social media, attach them to an email or view remotely on a bigger screen.
