"Plenty of features."

Low Light video is very well done. Secondly the EVF is amazing amazing amazing. The Panasonic DC-FZ80K is an awesome camera as most already know. The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. Switching back and forth between photo and video is cumbersome.

Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"Love this guy."

It is light and easy to carry with you. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. Mirrorless has come into it's own. The Panasonic DC-FZ80K was with me at all times. I will be upgrading to a better lens when finances allow.

"Camera works just fine."

I will update this report once I have used it more. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Excellent two characteristics in a 4k Digital Camera.

Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"It's range is awesome."

I bought this 4k Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

"Now about this Camera."

Best price, fast delivery and good support in case something goes wrong. I've had the Panasonic DC-FZ80K for about two weeks now and it's been great! I use it as a backup camera to my Canon 7D mark II. 5 years I've gotten to know this groundbreaking 4k Digital Camera well. The different modes are useful.

"Work Horse."

No focus peaking, even in live view. Again, slim margins for a lot of money. Very good camera for the size. The read/write speed is seriously blazing fast. Again, slim margins for a lot of money.

In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. What a really unique camera. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Better photos than her XR phone.

"This mode is important."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely.

"Wonderful pictures."

The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.

"That is a bargain."

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. Canon, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. But overall I really liked this bundle and the quality is awesome! Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery.

"Good low light photos."

Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Canon . I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light.

"Good low light photos."

This is the must have 4k Digital Camera for me. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures.

"Has a big LCD display."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.
