THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high-resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.
• •4K Photo feature extracts 8-megapixel photo out of a 4K video sequence up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s.
The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames/photos per second:
•4K Burst - burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from the 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.
•4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - 4K burst recording as the 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame/photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.
•4K Pre-Burst - 4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.
4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger* than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

The built-in Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offers a truly expansive 24x, wide-angle to a super telephoto range of perspectives with a 25-600mm equivalent focal length. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions, especially at the longer focal lengths. Five aspherical elements, with a total of nine aspherical surfaces, as well as three extra-low dispersion elements, help to control chromatic aberrations and produce sharp, clear imagery while a Nano Surface Coating helps to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast.
The lens' already impressive optical zoom range can be effectively doubled through the use of Intelligent Zoom, to achieve a total magnification of 48x. Extra Optical Zoom (EZ) settings are also available, which crop into the image to generate a narrower field of view, in order to produce 29.4x and 46.9x zoom magnifications at 8MP and 3MP resolutions, respectively. Standard digital zoom can be applied as well too, again, increase the effective zoom range by 4x.
