The lens consists of 14 elements in 12 groups, including aspherical elements with 6 aspherical surfaces 9 and 3ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses. The modern design suppresses distortion at the wide-angle range and critical fringing at long focal lengths highly effective. The 20mm wide-angle setting brings a 140 percent wider angle of view compared with a 24mm wide-angle lens. Especially in extended telephoto range, the effective POWER OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) with its suppression of possible camera shake when shooting off-hand the possibilities. With its longest focal length of the FZ72 distant subjects can double as close to pick up as the previous model FZ62.
Image stabilizer and auto focus
The high-performance Image Stabilizer Power OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) with Active mode for video suppresses blur in photos and videos very effective. The new high-sensitivity MOS sensor with 16.1 megapixels and the further developed Venus Engine image processor guarantee fast camera response and excellent image quality even at higher sensitivities. Also thanks to the lightning fast autofocus with the FZ72 series of images at a maximum of 5 frames / s feasible with AF tracking at full resolution. After switching on the FZ72 in less than 1s is ready.

Secure Image control in any situation on the viewfinder or LCD monitor
Picture control the LUMIX FZ72 is done via the electronic viewfinder or the LCD monitor. The 0.2 inch EVF (Electronic View Finder) shows a sharp image with 202,000 pixels and 100 percent field of view. Its increased from 30 frames / sec to 60 frames / sec frame rate produces a sharp image even with swivels and fast-moving subjects. The 7.5 inch LCD monitor, as an alternative to the viewfinder has a resolution of 460,000 pixels, anti-reflection coating, automatic brightness control and a wide viewing angle.
