Panasonic is set to release Post Focus mode, enabling users to select the subject they wish to be in focus after a photo has been taken, for its Lumix DMC-GX8 and DMC-G7 G Series cameras and DMC-FZ300 compact super-zoom later this month.

PanasonicPost Focus mode captures all possible focus points from foreground to background with each shutter press, with Panasonic stating it is "ideal for situations such as macro or food photography", with the ability to refine the image post-shot providing for sharp and accurate focus on a precise area.

"Post Focus is designed for macro shooting, food or portraiture where perfect focus is a must in achieving that great creative shot," Scott Mellish, Panasonic business manager, G Series, commented.

"When the moment is fleeting, you can use this mode to capture your image, with flexibility in deciding on the absolutely ideal focus point after the event. You can take your shot and then review and select your preferred focus point so it is pin-sharp.

"An added benefit in this mode is access to adjustment tools such as Focus Peaking and 5x magnification to really fine-tune your image to the smallest of details and achieve stunning
results."

Post Focus is available by updating the firmware to version 2.0., with Australian consumers able to
download the upgrade from November 26.
