4K video is a huge part of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 experience. 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. With Lumix FZ300, you can record 4K/UHD (3840 x 2160) video at 30p or 24p with full-time AF, manual controls, zebra stripes, ‘cinelike’ gamma, and much more – all at a bit rate of 100Mbps. If that’s a bit too much, 1080/60p and lower resolution modes are also available. If you want to produce slow motion clips, there’s a mode which records at 120 fps (1280 x 720).
