Product information

If you're looking for an uncompromising DSLR replacement, check out the Lumix FZ1000. Featuring a large 1-inch sensor and a new bright LEICA lens with 16x optical zoom, it brings everything up close with premium image quality. Choose photo or video recording in crisp 4K resolution to capture the world around you in a its natural beauty.

4K Ultra HD
Besides its incredibly detailed 4K video recording capability the new FZ1000 is also proposing a new way of photo creation. By cutting out a 3840x2160 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.

Sharper pictures
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.

OLED viewfinder
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 color reproduction. A free-angle 921K-dot LCD also enables artistic framing.

Wi-Fi & NFC
With the Panasonic Image App, you can utilise a smartphone / tablet as controller to zoom, set the focus and shoot from a distance. Simply touching an NFC-compatible smartphone / tablet to the camera, or scanning the QR code connects Wi-Fi.

High speed 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, the FZ1000 never lets photographers miss fleeting photographic opportunities.

Q & As

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Bridge Camera, 4K Ultra HD, 20.1MP, 16x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, NFC, OLED Viewfinder, 3" Screen 5 5 1 1
A new benchmark for consumer photography The Killer selling point for me was the 25mm to 400mm lens. However in addition there is a switchable digital zoom option in two stages, either increasing the range to 800mm (really high quality images as well) or then up to 1600mm. ISO ranges from 100 to beyond 12,000. So far I have found no discernible noise at 3200 iso which allows for very dim light shooting handheld photography. The Lumix has a 20 mega-pixel sensor and the lens quality is simply stunning with an aperture range of f2.8 to f8. The controls are intuitive and come to hand easily. Another feature that has bowled me over is the "Panoramic Image" setting. Pan slowly in the set direction (You can set the direction in the menu), the camera then shoots multiple images and stitches them together. The finished picture is a seriously impressive Panorama. It looks like one shot taken with a specialist lens, amazing. Then comes the Video, 4K Ultra HD. I set the camera to shoot in the MP4 format and the quality of picture is fantastic. I would say broadcast quality. I have now come to think that this is the finest camera i have ever purchased, i predict this model will be a world beater, it has set a new benchmark for consumer photography. If you want a high end bridge camera I cannot think there is a better model out there. Especially at this price. 13 August 2014
