Gadget: Panasonic unveils new-age 4K-enabled cameras for Indian consumers
New Delhi: At a time when shutterbugs the world over are making a beeline for the 4K technology that provides stunning true-to-life detail pictures, Panasonic has launched two new 4K-enabled compact digital cameras in India.
Panasonic 4K camera
Part of its state-of-the art LUMIX range, the DMC-FZ1000 and DMC-FZ300 cameras will allow professionals as well as amateur photographers to capture breathtaking 4K photos and videos at four times the resolution of full-high definition (HD).
The two new cameras come with a classic compact design with photogenic timing and precision to capture high-resolution images in the blink of an eye. To make things easy and fill the images with details, the cameras come with wide-angle LEICA lens systems.
High-precision OLED live viewfinders give users a higher contrast ratio (than an LCD) in low ambient light conditions. Both devices are equipped with high-sensitivity MOS sensors and Venus Engine image processors, which together capture crystal clear images with superior colour reproduction and minimum noise or grains even in low light environments.
Panasonic's DMC-FZ1000 flagship bridge camera - a camera that fills the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the point-and-shoot camera - has a 4x larger than the conventional MOS sensor of 1-inch 20.1 megapixel. The MOS sensor, exclusively used by Panasonic, Olympus and LEICA in their cameras, can achieve a high quality image while keeping energy consumption at minimal levels.
With a 16x optical zoom, the model produces highly descriptive photographs rich in both detail and resolution. The second 4K technology model DMC-FZ300 is the ultimate hybrid compact camera that comes with a splash- and dust-proof rugged design.
