4K Ultra HD
Besides its incredibly detailed 4K video recording capability the new FZ1000 is also proposing a new way of photo creation. 4K PHOTO allows you to extract a 3840x2160 8 Megapixel equivalent still image from the 4K video footage so you can photograph the spur-of-the-moment which is 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.
