Description

A 20 mm ultra wide-angle 60x optical zoom lens makes it possible to capture dynamic landscape and wild animals distant away. The 20 mm ultra wide-angle lens captures approx. 140% wider angle of view compared with a 24 mm angle of view. The intelligent zoom extends the zoom ratio up to 120x equiv. with minimum deterioration of image quality.

The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration. The angular width that the DMC-FZ72 can compensate is more than 200% wider than the predecessor DMC-FZ62 at the tele-end, which realizes handheld 1200 mm super telephoto shooting. The Active Mode is equipped with DMC-FZ72 that encourages active video recording at wide angle such as shooting while walking without causing deterioration of image quality.

The DMC-FZ72 records 1920 x 1080 Full-HD video in AVCHD/MP4. The sound quality is improved thanks to the newly developed wind shield zoom microphone that minimizes wind noise by approx. 70% compared with the DMC-FZ62. Externally, the special sealed structure prevents wind from hitting the microphone directly and the draft structure suppresses retention of air internally. With a substantial increase in volume by approx. 50%, the microphone boasts better S/N ratio to suppress noise in quiet circumstances to catch the target sound.

The 16.1-megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor is newly integrated in DMC-FZ72. Together with the Venus Engine, it elevates the response, sensitivity and image quality even to the higher level. Integrating the high speed digital signal output technology, the DMC-FZ72 shoot 9 fps in 16.1-megapixel resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF. It also contributes to the light speed AF. Together with the quick start-up time, the DMC-FZ72 never misses the most fleeting shooting opportunities.
