Packing a powerful optical zoom and superior controllability, the new LUMIX FZ82 gives users better manual operation over the photo and video recording. The FZ82 features the LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra-wide-angle lens with 60x optical zoom and comes with USB charging to allow an even quicker charge.

The newly integrated 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and advanced image processor Venus Engine achieve high-speed response and high-quality images even in the sensitive recording. Perfect for Macro, the LUMIX FZ82 is also capable of 1cm Macro Shooting.

For an even faster response and higher mobility, the LUMIX FZ82 boasts a high-speed, high-precision AF with DFD (Depth from Defocus)technology, which shortens the focusing time. It calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels at a high 240-fps signal exchange speed. As a result, the LUMIX FZ82 achieves an AF of approximately 0.09 sec. This benefit increases as the focal length grow.

The LUMIX FZ82 also offers high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects in sharp focus. Thanks to the touch-control system, users can quickly focus on the subject and even release the shutter with touch operation to capture unmissable photo opportunities.

The LUMIX FZ82 records smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K videos in 3840x2160 resolution at 25p(50Hz Area). The powerful 60x optical zoom and POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode suppresses blurring even in video recording. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO shots and a variety of derivative functions, such as the new Light Composition and 4K Live Cropping. For more creative freedom, Creative Control and Creative Panorama options are available.

The LUMIX FZ82 also integrates a 1,040K-dot rear monitor with the touch-control system. Together with the 0.2-inch 1,170K-dot EVF (Electronic View Finder), users can capture subjects in clear focus. It also includes Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. With a hot shoe and compatibility with a variety of optional accessories, the LUMIX FZ82 goes beyond a standard telephoto zoom compact camera whilst providing high-quality photos and an exceptional 4K video recording experience.

Mitigate distances with a powerful 60x optical zoom lens

The LUMIX FZ82 features the stunningly versatile LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra-wide-angle lens with a 60x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm) making it possible to capture dynamic landscapes, wild animals and birds from a distance - both as photos and video footage. The 20mm ultra-wide-angle lens captures an approx. 140% wider angle of view compared with a 24mm angle of view. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active Mode effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration both in the photo and video recording.

Intelligent Zoom is included with the LUMIX FZ82, which extends the zoom ratio up to 120x equivalent, maintaining the high picture quality even when combining a digital zoom.

Capture unmissable moments with high-speed response, 4K PHOTO and 4K video

The 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor is newly-integrated into the LUMIX FZ82. Together with the high-performing image processing LSI Venus Engine, it elevates the response, sensitivity and image quality to an even higher level. Incorporating high-speed digital signal output technology, the FZ82 shoots 10 (AFS) / 6 (AFC) fps in full resolution with a mechanical shutter.

Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO shots with the LUMIX FZ82. 4K PHOTO lets the user capture unmissable photo opportunities at 30 fps by extracting the best frame from a 4K burst file to save as a photo.

Plus, multiple images can be automatically saved as 4K PHOTO shoots all at once. A maximum of 150 frames in five seconds can be saved following a designated frame.

It also comes with the Post Focus function, which enables users to select the in-focus area after shooting. This is especially helpful in macro shooting where strict focusing is required for changing expressions by changing the focused subject. This function has been developed by combining the high-speed, high-precision autofocus function with 4K technology. Both Post Focus and Focus Stacking can be activated quickly with the dedicated button on the top panel.

The LUMIX FZ82 enables 4K Live Cropping in video recording to achieve stable panning or zooming. Thanks to its digital operation, panning and zooming images are smooth because it does not physically move the zoom lens.

A variety of video recording options are also available for users to choose from - High-Speed Video, Time Lapse and Stop Motion Animation. High-Speed Video records subjects in fast motion at 100fps (50Hz Area / FHD).

Full manual control is available with LUMIX FZ82 to enjoy more creative photography. The design of the grip has also been re-engineered for stable holding during extended shooting.

The new Lumix DC-FZ82 replaces the 3 year-old FZ72 as Panasonic's most affordable super-zoom camera, with only the 60x, 20-1200mm F2.8-5.9 zoom lens remaining the same. In most other aspects, the FZ82 clearly benefits from 3 years of camera development, inheriting many trickle-down features from...

I wanted a bridge camera that had the capabilities of being able to reach those hard to see locations in the interior and exterior of churches, it had to shoot RAW and be light enough to carry as a back up camera or a stand alone one, especially on those trips when it's impossible to take a kit-bag.

I really haven't used this for long but overall I am pleased I brought this item. Just one niggle but not too important, if you take pictures at night the camera becomes noisy and the screen is not clear but the pictures come out ok. Lovely pictures of the moon and sunsets.

This is the first time I have used this type of camera and have found my way round it successfully.. tho manual took several readings... I have taken some good pictures and look forward to improving my use by exploring more of the options. UK Digital helpful and efficient.


Very good camera but needs a bit of work to get the best results (automatic mode gives perfectly acceptable photos). I have used a Nikon P510 for many years and the FZ82 matches it in many respects and is better in some areas.

Great camera, easy to use on point and shoot mode, still to learn the rest. Excellent quality picture even on zoom. Had a similar camera for years but nowhere near as good quality as the lumix. Very impressed.

Only just bought it have been out in the garden taking pictures and love it , still learning of course nice to have a movie button to make a small movie. belong to a camera club so hoping to take good pictures for next season.


This is my 2nd Lumix and is a real step up from the previous model. It is simple to use, but has a whole range of features that make it versatile and powerful. The 60x zoom lens is great for wildlife photos and intimate close ups. This is a lot of camara at a reasonable price.

After reading the specifiaction and talking to UK Digital, This camera seemed to be what I wanted. I am an OAP so I didn't want one which was too complicated and heavy. I have only just started using it, The instruction manual is easy to follow with good diagrams. Have only taken a few photos.

Great camera for the price. I love Lumix and wanted an upgrade with a viewfinder from my TZ-30. I chose the FZ82. It needs a lot of tweaking for bird photography, but you can get some decent shots. Auto setting gives good all round clear shots of landscape/people etc. The zoom range is excellent, although the higher you zoom, the more noise (grain) you get and it's extremely grainy at high ISOs. I'm still getting to grips with all the Manual/Aperture/Shutter/P/ settings, but prefer these to Auto, for the subjects I'm shooting. The diopter wheel, tends to alter it's set position easily, so I've had to tape it. I've yet to get any WOW shots out of it, but that may be me!
