Panasonic DC-FZ80 to have 4K Video


Well 1/2.3″ sensors might have been useable with 1080P in adequate lighting, this size of sensor has not fared well with 4K.  The level of detail just has not been there and we’ve only utilized 1″ and up sensors.  So it will be interesting to see the video results produced by this camera.


  • 4K video
  • 18MP
  • 1/2.3″ MOS sensor
  • $400
  • 20-1200mm zoom lens
  • Built in WiFi
  • 3″ touchscreen monitor

We will post a video sample once we have one.
