Optics & Focus:
The Lumix ZS80 features a 24mm ultra wide-angle 30x telephoto Leica DC Vario-Elmar 24-720mm (35mm equivalent) lens. When it comes to capturing landscapes, or distant subjects, the ZS80's zoom range makes it easy to capture virtually any subject, in any situation. Its Power Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) feature compensates for hand shake, and minimizes blur, even in telephoto. The Lumix ZS80's Zoom Compose Assist function helps regain your subject quickly when light is lost in telephoto, by zooming out when shooting.
The ZS80 incorporates Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology, which decreases the set focus time, resulting in a high speed AF. Using high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps (AFS) / 5 fps (AFC), the camera is able to capture fast-moving subjects just in-focus, as well as consecutive shots in RAW format.
