Panasonic Press Release Intro:
Today Panasonic announces the LUMIX DMC-FZ330, the latest addition to its legendary FZ range of super-zoom compact digital cameras. With a LEICA DC lens boasting an F2.8 aperture throughout its stunning 25-600mm zoom range, the LUMIX DMC-FZ330 allows you to capture the moment in high-speed, even under the harshest conditions with a splash/dustproof rugged design. Newly incorporating Panasonic’s latest 4K photography and videography advances – including 4K Photo – the LUMIX DMC-FZ330 will change how you can capture the most magical moments, from distant wildlife scenes to live sport.
Getting closer to the moment with advanced LEICA DC lens
The LUMIX DMC-FZ330’s 25-600mm LEICA DC Lens with will get you closer to the scene and with an F2.8 aperture lens from wide to tele, in stunning clarity. With this wide zoom ratio, alongside Panasonic’s latest 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S + (Optical Image Stabilisation) technology, the DMC-FZ330 will give you crisp clean images in almost every situation, even when shooting birds in the canopy or your children playing in the sea. The bridge camera’s Light Speed AF means you’ll never miss the shot, while new Depth from Defocus (DFD) technology shortens the focusing time even further by calculating the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels.
Putting 4K within your reach
With the new addition of Panasonic’s latest 4K technologies, the DMC-FZ330 will put 4K shooting in the palm of your hand. 4K video provides four times the resolution and clarity of traditional Full HD, resulting in videos that jump from the screen, bringing scenes to life before your eyes. As a result of these advances, the DMC-FZ330 features new 4K Photo functionality that gives you the potential to totally change your photography. The 4K Pre-Burst, 4K Burst and 4K Burst Start&Stop modes allow you to extract an 8-megapixel still from 4K video footage with total control and precision. This means you can select the perfect image from even the most fleeting moments – such as a bird taking flight or a fish jumping from the water.
