      Product information
      You'll be able to stay closer to the action with the impressive 60x zoom on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72EB-K Bridge Camera. This 16 mp camera also offers high quality image stabilisation to help to capture clear shots, and even allows you to record Full HD videos.

      The perfect photo every time

      Ideal for capturing photos of dynamic landscapes or of animals, the 60x optical zoom boasted by the Lumix FZ72 lets you get closer to your subject so you can record all the detail and take fantastic shots of far-away subjects. The ultra wide-angle lens is ideal for capturing wide landscape photos or fitting everyone into your photo.

      You can be sure of clear images thanks to the Power Optical Image Stabiliser (O.I.S). The O.I.S technology helps to eliminate the effects of hand-shake vibration and zooming, providing blur-free images even if you are zooming in on your subject.

      The combination of the MOS sensor and Venus Engine means that you can expect a fast response and high image quality. You can take photos quickly thanks to the rapid start up time and variable shutter speeds, so you'll never miss a moment.

      High definition video

      The DMCFZ72EB-K Bridge Camera allows you to record Full HD 1080p video so you can capture special moments in full detail, whether it's wildlife on the move or your child's birthday party. It records in AVCHD/MP4 format.

      It will record videos with high quality sound thanks to the improved Wind Shield Zoom Microphone, which helps to minimise the effects of wind noise by around 70% compared with other cameras. This means that you can record high quality sound on your videos, helping you to capture every word.

      You can also make the most of Power O.I.S technology, which is ideal when recording video on the move, helping to reduce the amount of blur in your videos.

      3" viewfinder

      It is easy to line up your shot using the 3.0" LCD viewfinder on the Lumix DMC-FZ72 Bridge Camera. Running at up to 60 fps, it helps to reduce image lag, ideal when you're recording fast-moving videos or subjects under strong sunlight.

      The Intelligent LCD technology has an AR coating and a wide viewing angle which makes it easy for everyone to see your photos in any condition.

      The choice is yours

      You can bring your own style to your photos thanks to the range of white balance and effect options on the Lumix FZ 72. White balance settings include daylight and cloudy, as well as an automatic mode, and you can choose from a range of effects modes, including happy, bringing warm tones to your photos, or the timeless black and white effect for a stylish image.

      Don't miss a moment with the combination of a powerful 60x zoom and Power O.I.S technology on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72EB-K Bridge Camera.

      Zoom is incredible! Wide angle very useful. Nice feel to hold. Raw option increases processing possibilities.
      Overall image quality might be best in class.
