|The DMC FZ300 was presented by Panasonic in July 2015. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|
In additional DMC FZ300 has a Compact CMOS sensor with size of 6 x 5 mm² (0.24" x 0.18").
Also DMC FZ300's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 12 megapixel. This resolution is far below average.
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.
