Item details

The FZ300 is a great all round camera, and replaces the FZ 200 which I used for over a year, and got some great pictures with. The FZ 300/330 improves in several respects, higher definition viewfinder, faster autofocus ( essential for capturing birds ) 4K video, and the ability to capture several frames per second in 4K and select one, to get just the right moment when a bird takes flight.Panasonic's engineers focused on preserving a large f/2.8 aperture all the way through the zoom range to 600mm ! This lets in more light, resulting in sharper images and better low light performance. I think it's great value, as a 600mm f2.8 lens for an interchangeable lens camera will cost thousands of 's, and although the quality is not the same as a "full frame" slr, it's still great and I have many images to prove it. It also will take great extreme close up shots, so when you travel birding, with this one camera you can shoot almost anything and get a great shot.
I think the price is around 400 in UK.
