The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is Panasonic’s flagship Bridge Camera. Features of the FZ1000 include a large 20.1MP 1-inch MOS sensor for superb image quality, LEICA DC f/2.8-4.0 16x zoom lens (25-400mm equivalent), Wi-Fi/NFC connectivity, 3-inch free-angle LCD and is the worlds first compact camera with 4K video recording.
F2.8-4.0 25-400mm LEICA DC Lens
The newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens features 5 aspherical glass lenses, which are made possible by Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology. In combination with the large 1-inch MOS sensor your photos will get a shallow depth of field with an impressive defocus effect featuring invisible edge lines. Macro Shooting
With the new FZ1000 you can capture stunning macro shots with a minimum focusing distance of 3cm. Get close enough to see details of blooming flowers, colourful insects etc.
Large 1-Inch 20.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor
The FZ1000 captures crisp and clear images with minimum noise even when shooting photos at ISO12800 thanks to the newly incorporated 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor. Because of its large size, the sensor processes a very high amount of light and helps producing impressive defocus shots.
Venus Engine – advanced Image Processing
The newly developed Venus Engine features multiple noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter to achieve high color reproduction and high image quality with natural description. The combination of the High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves stunning picture quality going beyond the traditional limits of digital compact cameras.
4K Video Recording and 8 Megapixel Still Images
Besides its incredibly detailed 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840×2160, 25 fps in MP4)* the new FZ1000 is also proposing a new way of photo creation. By cutting out a 3840×2160 8 Megapixel equivalent still image from the 4K video footage you can photograph the spur-of-the-moment which often missed in still image photography.
Optical Image Stabilisation with Tilt Correction
The incorporated HYBRID O.I.S.+ with 5-axis correction enables blur-free one-handed video recording. It detects and compensates for the camera’s 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. The Level Shot Function of the FZ1000 detects the image’s horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted.
Smooth Electronic Zooming in 5 speed steps
During video recording the 16x optical zoom function is available, too. As an advanced function, the FZ1000 offers controlled zoom operation in five electronic zoom speeds from low to fast to match each shooting situation.
Stereo Zoom Microphone
Videos recorded with the FZ1000 also come with high-quality, highly realistic Dolby® Digital stereo sound. The stereo zoom microphone features a zoom noise reduction system and the Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most of the noise from background wind. With the DMW-MS2* Stereo/Shotgun Microphone, you can adjust the sound gathering characteristics to match the shooting situation.
2.359K-dot OLED Live View Finder & free-angle LCD
The FZ1000 boasts a 2.359K-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) that assures stable framing and superb visibility even at high magnification and under strong sunlight. The OLED display achieves high-speed response with minimum time lag while enhancing the resolution, as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for superior colour reproduction. A free-angle 921K-dot LCD also enables artistic framing.
Linear Motor Focus System and DFD Technology
The FZ1000’s newly integrated liner motor into the focus system achieves approx. 300% faster* focusing. The new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology also shortens the time to set focus. It instantaneously calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating 2 images with different sharpness levels. As a result, ultra high speed AF of approx.0.08 sec is achieved.
12-fps Burst Shooting
High speed burst shooting can be shot at 12fps in 20.1 Megapixel full resolution. Together with the quick start-up of approx. 0.7 sec and short release time lag.
Max. 1/4000 sec Fast Shutter Speed
High shutter speed at max. 1/4000 sec (at wide-end) / 1/3000 sec (at tele-end) enables you to capture spur-of-the-moment of fast moving subject. It also allows you to open the aperture even outdoors. Max. 1/16000 sec with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight.
With the Panasonic Image App, you can utilize a smartphone / tablet as controller to zoom, set the focus and shoot from a distance. You can instantly upload and share your images on SNS using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone / tablet.
Simply touching an NFC-compatible smartphone / tablet to the camera, or scanning the QR code connects Wi-Fi.
You can tag the location information to the image by utilizing the GPS log of a smartphone / tablet and share it to the preferred SNS.
