|The DC FZ82 was presented by Panasonic in January 2017. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|
In additional DC FZ82 has a Compact CMOS sensor with size of 6 x 5 mm² (0.24" x 0.18").
Also DC FZ82's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 18 megapixel. That's roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.
The Panasonic supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Panasonic's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The DC FZ82 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 1.16 megapixel, an above average value for a viewfinder like this.The magnifcation is c. 0.46x, an average value for an electronic viewfinder.
The DC FZ82's shutter speed varies from 1/2000s to 60s.
The highest shutter speed of the Panasonic is just 1/2000s. That's no longer state of the art and may cause problems in challenging light conditions.
|Max. shutter speed||1/2000s|
|Min. shutter speed||60s|
The DC FZ82's sensitivity goes from 125 ISO und 12800 ISO, a very useful and practical range.
|Min. sensitivity||125 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||12800 ISO|
The DC FZ82 supports all general exposure modes.
The Panasonic allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The DC FZ82's auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).
Manual focus is also possible with the Panasonic, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The DC FZ82 has a built-in flash with a diapason of up to 14m (47 ft.). That range will fit for almost all occasion.
The DC FZ82 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.
Unfortunately, the DC FZ82's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
The DC FZ82's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.
