Product Description

The 25-600mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens boasts full-range F2.8. Regardless of how distant your subject is, or how fast it is moving, this lens won’t let it get away. And the constant F2.8 capability enhances low light shooting throughout the entire zoom range.

Also, Panasonic’s black box technology Nano Surface Coating boasts extremely low reflectance ratio and it is applied to the LUMIX FZ300 for exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity by minimising flaring and ghosting.

Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and should be captured in the best resolution possible. Now Panasonic's 4K technology is available for everyone. With the introduction of the new LUMIX FZ300, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s).

To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the LUMIX FZ300 adopts a splash / dustproof rugged design. It comes with sealings onto every joint, dial, and button to pass the stringent test quality standards of our flagship DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras. You can trust the LUMIX FZ300 for outdoor photography under harsh weather conditions from marshy jungles to windy deserts.
