The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera offers a true Hybrid Photography experience for everyone with 4K video recording capability (QFHD4K: 3840 x 2160, 30 fps in MP4) and the ability to switch easily between video and still capture for the ultimate in image creativity. The Lumix FZ1000 also features in-camera playback screen grabs of (3840 x 2160) 8-megapixel equivalent hybrid photography photos from 4K video footage to capture the spur-of-the-moment shots often missed with ordinary still photos.

  • Experience the ultimate in 4K QFHD/HD hybrid photography
  • 4K QFHD 30p video with hybrid 8MP post capture
  • Large 1-inch 20.1MP MOS sensor for amazing defocus control
  • Bright Leica DC Lens 25-400mm F2.8-4.0
  • Super-fast LUMIX DFD focusing technology
  • Integrated smartphone WiFi for remote imaging control
The newly incorporated 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N (Signal to Noise) ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600. Rich amounts of light help produce impressive defocus with shallow depth of field.  The result is truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting conditions. The FZ1000 videos offer high-quality, highly realistic Dolby® Digital stereo sound from a built-in microphone. A stereo zoom microphone features a zoom noise reduction system, and a Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most of the noise from background wind. With the optional DMW-MS2 Stereo/Shotgun Microphone, you can adjust the sound gathering characteristics to match the shooting situation. The impressive flexibility of DMC-FZ1000 goes far beyond the limit of conventional bridge camera.

Experience the world of 4K video capture and Enjoy true-to-life, ultra high-resolution images in smooth motion in addition to the realistic ambience of audio recording with the optional Stereo / Shotgun Microphone (DMW-MS2) with the ability to adjust sound gathering characteristics to match any shooting situation. For even greater versatility, switch to manual operation in Creative Video mode and dramatic slow motion in full-HD 120 fps video. 

The DMC-FZ1000 is supported with the new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens, especially made to get best imaging results for the unforgettable moments of your life. It has an F2.8-4.0 brightness that resists blurring even with telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 25mm wide-angle to 16x optical zoom. Comprising 15 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses and 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit achieves high MTF value. Adoption of 5 aspherical glass lenses achieves beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with invisible edge line, which is made possible by Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology.

A new linear motor integrated into the focus system achieves approx. 275% faster focusing, compared to the conventional DMC-FZ200. In addition new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology shortens the time to set the 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. 0.09 sec (wide-end) / approx. 0.17/sec (tele-end) is achieved.

The HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) + with 5-axis correction gives you blur-less, one-handed video shooting ability. 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 detects the image's horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted. It takes stable video even in high-angle, blind recording.

Stunning macro shots can be shot with minimum focusing distance of 3cm. You can enjoy shooting close-up shots with the DMC-FZ1000 only to express spectacular details of flowers, insects and so on. In-camera Creative Control adds artistic and original expression to your photos and videos. Plus, create vertical / horizontal panoramic photos with a unique touch just by swiveling the camera.

Love it for the features and the low light capability. A good bit heavier than my FZ-40
