Panasonic DUAL I.S. System
Panasonic’s Dual Image Stabilization system is the most advanced technology yet to help photographers get sharp pictures when shooting hand-held across a wide range of situations. Previous image stabilization systems have relied either on in-lens optical technology, or moving the sensor within the camera, to combat image blurring from camera shake. In contrast Panasonic’s Dual I.S. found in the Lumix GX8 and GX80 cameras uses both together simultaneously to give the best possible effect, for both stills photography and video shooting. The system works with a wide range of optically stabilized lenses, from wide-angle to telephoto, giving particular benefits for hand-held photography in low-light conditions.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ100
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ100 is a solidly made, compact travel camera that gives class-leading image quality thanks to its 20.1-million-pixel 1-inch sensor and 25-250mm equivalent f/2.8-5.9 Leica zoom lens. Enthusiast photographers will appreciate its 3-inch touchscreen LCD and 1.166-mlllion-dot electronic viewfinder, Raw recording, 10fps continuous shooting, built-in Wi-Fi and 1/16,000s electronic shutter. The camera also features 4K video recording along with Panasonic’s unique 4K photo mode, which helps capture the most important moments in high quality 8-million-pixel pictures. The icing on the cake is the Post Focus function that allows the photographer to choose the focus point in-camera after shooting.
