A powerful optical zoom is always a useful addition on your camera if you need to get a shot from a distance in a pinch, but this is ridiculous: get a load of Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FZ72, a brand super-shooter that’s equipped with a massive 60x optical zoom and a 16.1-megapixel sensor that turns any photographer into a paparazzo or a wildlife snapper.
Panasonic’s all new bridge shooter doesn’t just boast a jaw-dropping 60x zoom: it’s also equipped with a super wide-angle lens, meaning you’ll be capturing everything and anything you point it at. Shaky hands won’t get in the way of your pursuit of the perfect image either, as you’ll find the DMC-FZ72 equipped with optical image stabilisation so even when you’re zoomed all the way in, the sensor can still banish the blurry.
Behind the lens, you’ll find the 16.1-megapixel high sensitivity sensor that provides the guts of the camera, joined by super fast autofocus giving you responsive and quick focus, even on fast moving subjects. The camera itself starts up ready to shoot in less than a second, so you’ll never miss a snap again.
