Are you aiming to see the world? Need to capture those moments in superb detail? The best travel camera for the job needs to shoot in 4K for the best quality, while still being affordable. It just so happens the Panasonic Lumix FZ80 fits the bill perfectly, in addition to an incredibly long zoom range.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Panasonic Lumix FZ80 Review\r\nThe Panasonic Lumix FZ80 can shoot videos and photos in 4K, while providing the same kind of quality at 60x zoom range, the longest on our list of the best travel cameras.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nPart of the Panasonic Lumix FZ80\u2019s superb performance is thanks to its 18.1 megapixel MOS image sensor, which is that patented Panasonic image quality, and 6.1 megapixels more than the more expensive. With its optical image stabilizer, you\u2019re capturing exquisite detail, even in low light conditions. What was equally fantastic was the Panasonic Lumix FZ80\u2019s HD video quality. With 4K UHD video quality, you\u2019re capturing the moment in stunning detail. We did notice, however, fully zooming while video recording can be unstable.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Panasonic Lumix FZ80 gets bonus points for being lightweight, compact, and really easy to handle. Like other Panasonic cameras, the Lumix FZ80 has a curved shape for your hand to grip. To keep your grip from slipping, however, the \u201chandle\u201d was given a textured finish. This contrasts greatly from a Canon PowerShot ELPH 180, which doesn\u2019t include a grip and will likely result in you dropping it by accident.\r\n\r\nWe took a point off for the fixed LCD display. Still, it\u2019s nice and large at 3-inches. The FZ80\u2019s sensor size is 1\/2.3-inches. It\u2019s simple to use, while also providing a few buttons to fiddle with such as photo mode, manual mode, and controlling shutter speed. There\u2019s also a memory card slot.\r\nValue\r\nAs a bridge camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ80 fills the void for those wanting the best of a single-lens reflex camera and a point and shoot camera. It\u2019s got an incredibly long zoom range of 60x without the need of a zoom lens\u2014blowing the Nikon Coolpix B500 out of the water with its 40x zoom range. Additional value comes from built-in features such as post focus mode, giving you an opportunity to pick the focal point even after you\u2019ve already taken the image.\r\n\r\nThe Olympus TG-5 is neck and neck in just about every category as a travel camera. If you want what the FZ80 has, and you\u2019re going somewhere wet, pick the TG-5. It\u2019s waterproof up to 50 feet.\r\nPanasonic Lumix FZ80 Review Wrap Up\r\nThe Panasonic Lumix FZ80 is going to be a fantastic companion while you\u2019re out on vacation. Its performance is excellent, even for such a small sensor, capturing memories in high quality 4K UHD. At the same time, it\u2019s light in your hands and compact, making it easy to carry and store. It more than makes up for its instability when fully zoomed.
