Small enough to slip into your pocket, the Panasonic DMC-TZ80 is the ideal digital camera to carry with you on your travels. With a zoom capable of 30 times magnification, you’ll be able to capture details even from a long distance. Think of the expansive landscapes you can seize and the detail you can take in on far-away subjects. This camera makes it so easy to capture everything that catches your eye on your travels, whether close or far away.
Equipped with a powerful 18.1 megapixel MOS sensor combined with the Venus Engine, you’ll be able to capture stunning images, from far-away landscapes to up-close people shots and bustling street scenes. The Venus Engine is the same processor used in LUMIX's high-end cameras, resulting in great image quality even in dimly lit circumstances.
The LUMIX TZ80 is kitted out with a 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens featuring a 30 times optical zoom, giving you the opportunity to capture even the smallest details. With a 24-720mm zoom range in 35mm camera equivalent, you’ll be able to capture those wide landscapes with exceptional detail.
Capture the perfect moment with precision with 4K photo capability. Enabling 30 frames per second, you can select your best photo after shooting. The 4K photo feature in the LUMIX TZ80 ensures you won’t miss a moment – simply shoot, select and save. Shooting in 4K video gives you the ability to record your journey in up to four times the resolution of full high definition quality. Your videos will be able to capture all the excitement in clear detail.
With the incredible ability to pinpoint exactly the section in your frame you want to focus in on even after you've taken the photo, the post-focus function in this camera gives you more chances to capture the perfect shot. Simply capture the scene, review the image and touch the part of the photo you'd like to be in focus.
It can be tough to see your shots in detail when you’re out shooting in daylight. The benefit of the live viewfinder is being able to see your shots clearly even when there’s glare. The viewfinder turns on automatically when you bring the camera up to your face, so there is no mucking around with settings. At 1.44m-dotm the OLED live viewfinder allows you to view your images clearly. The 3-inch 1.04m-dot LCD screen gives you full view of your shots from a wide-screen which also has touchscreen capability to easily swipe through your images.
The 5-axis image stabilisation correction in this Panasonic DMC-TZ80 digital camera assists to combat camera shake from handheld shooting to ensure exceptionally clear images. You won’t need to worry about slight camera movements when you’re snapping action shots or far-away landscapes, even in dim light. The O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabiliser Plus) removes all types of movement, including horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation for perfect images.

While the camera comes with one battery and a charging cable for in-camera battery charging, it doesn’t come with a battery charger. We recommend Panasonic BLG10E battery and charger kit, so you can charge the camera battery in an external charger.
If you want to capture long exposures, we suggest using a small tripod such as the Joby Gorillapod. It can also be handy for helping make sure your video content is beautifully smooth.
As this camera is so small, we recommend storing it in a case such as the Peak Design Field Pouch. That way the camera will be protected when you put it inside your backpack and offers extra protection when you're carrying it around.
