TRAVEL ZOOM CAMERA
The LUMIX ZS80 features a 24mm ultra-wide angle 30x telephoto LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 24-720mm). From dynamic landscapes to distant subjects, this versatile zoom range makes it easy to capture virtually any subject, in any situation - especially helpful when traveling.
OPTICAL IMAGE STABILIZER
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates for hand shake to minimize blur, even in telephoto. The LUMIX ZS80 provides a Zoom Compose Assist function to help regain the subject quickly when sight is lost in telephoto simply by zooming out when shooting.
The LUMIX ZS80 incorporates 1/2.3-inch MOS Sensor with 20.3MP.
DFD AND FOCUSING
The LUMIX ZS80 integrates DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology*1 to shorten set focus time, resulting in the ultra-high speed AF*2. The LUMIX ZS80 boasts high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps (AFS) / 5 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects just in-focus, and even allows consecutive shots in RAW.
The LUMIX ZS80 records high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4* in addition to Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p video in AVCHD Progressive or MP4 (MPEG-4 / H.264) format with practical full-time AF.
* Max. 15 min.
HIGH SPEED VIDEO RECORDING
High Speed Video mode enables recording subject with fast motion in FHD at 120 fps (60Hz Area) / 120/100 fps (50Hz Area), while Time Lapse /Stop Motion Animation are also available.
4K PHOTO MODE
With 4K PHOTO, the LUMIX ZS80 lets you capture fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8MP equivalent resolution by extracting the most photogenic frame from the 4K burst file to save as a high-res photo. And with the added Auto Marking function, choosing the best shot out of hundreds of frames is easier. Auto Marking lets you jump to the nearest frame where the differences are obvious between consecutive frames to minimize the time it takes to choose your best shot.
SEQUENCE COMPOSITION MODE
Sequence Composition makes it possible to create a stromotion image by synthesizing multiple images shot at a fixed frame with 4K PHOTO. A unique image reflecting the subject's motion can be easily produced in the camera without needing a special retouching process. Post Focus and Focus Stacking functions are available as well.
LIVE VIEW FINDER
The LUMIX ZS80 integrates a new 0.21-inch 2,330K-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder) into a high magnification ratio of approximately 0.53x (35mm camera equivalent). The image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is switched automatically with the eye sensor on the LVF.
The LUMIX ZS80 provides a variety of artistic functions to add fun to your imaging. Selfies can also be shot in panorama, ideal for selfies and group selfies in front of dynamic scenic backgrounds. The popular Creative Control mode features 22 filter options - Expressive / Retro / Old Days / High Key / Low Key / Sepia / Monochrome / Dynamic Monochrome / Rough Monochrome* / Silky Monochrome* / Impressive Art / High Dynamic / Cross Process / Toy Effect / Toy Pop / Bleach Bypass / Miniature Effect** / Soft Focus* / Fantasy / Star Filter* / One Point Color / Sunshine* mode. The effect parameter of each mode is also adjustable. With Creative Panorama function, you can shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture and reflect 18 filter effects.
* For photo only.
** Sound will not be recorded with [MINIATURE EFFECT] in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long.)
3.0-INCH TOUCH AND TILT DISPLAY
The 3.0-inch 1040K-dot static type touch control monitor has a 180-degree tiltable structure. When the monitor is flipped up, the camera automatically activates the Self Shot mode to shoot attractive selfie portraits using Soft Skin or Slimming effects on the face.
After shooting, you can apply virtual makeup to the face in playback mode with the Beauty Retouch function. In Aesthetic Retouch, various effects can be applied to the face, including skin texture enhancement, lifting the face, whitening teeth and so on. In Makeup Retouch, you can also choose the color of the foundation, lips, cheeks and eye shadow.
BLUETOOTH AND WIFI
The LUMIX ZS80 integrates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity for a more flexible shooting experience with instant image sharing. Once connected to a smartphone or tablet installed with the Panasonic Image App for iOS / Android, you can shoot, browse and share images remotely, plus choose the picture quality of the photos you send. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) maintains constant connection to a smartphone/tablet with minimum power consumption, and enables the camera to activate by simply using a smartphone/tablet or to automatically add GPS geotag on your photos.
USB BATTERY CHARGING
The LUMIX ZS80 keeps you shooting with a long battery life for approximately 380 pictures per charge. Thanks to the eco 30 fps mode, you can shoot up to approximately 340 pictures even while using a LVF. The battery can be recharged via AC or USB.
