Basically this is a little brother to the GH4 in size/shape that offers some significant advances in features and I believe tips the hand off what Panasonic will offer in the GH5.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 Digital Camera

These superzoom cameras continue to improve and while not at the level of a DSLR with massive zoom lens they do offer excellent image quality, crazy amount of zoom in a reasonable size, weight and priced package.

Depth-From-Defocus AF TechnologyFor accelerated autofocus performance, DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position to benefit continuous shooting and movie recording modes. This contrast-detection type focus method also benefits subject tracking performance for maintaining sharp focus on moving subjects. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance in dim environments.

Assisting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as Touch MF Assist for touch-to-focus operation.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
