Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 overview

  • 1Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera is a bridge-style point-and-shoot camera featuring a large 20.1MP 1" High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor to enable high-resolution 4K QFHD video recording and rich still shooting up to 50 fps. The image sensor affords notable sensitivity, to an expandable ISO 25600, with a high signal-to-noise ratio for a cleaner image quality with reduced image noise. Designed for effective hybrid photo and video recording performance, the 4K output can also be used to permit in-camera 8MP screen grabs from video files for simplified multimedia output.

Complementing the imaging performance is a long-reaching 16x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit zoom lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-400mm. Covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, this f/2.8-4 lens incorporates aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements within its construction to realize a sharp, clear image quality with minimal chromatic aberration and distortion. HYBRID O.I.S. image stabilization further benefits working in difficult lighting conditions by minimizing the appearance of camera shake across five distinct axes. The lens also utilizes a linear AF motor, that is benefitted by Lumix Depth From Defocus technology to achieve fast focusing performance throughout the zoom range.

The bridge-style design of this camera features both an electronic viewfinder and rear LCD monitor for easier viewing in an array of working situations. The 0.39" 2,359k-dot OLED Live View Finder provides 100% frame coverage with 35mm-equivalent 0.7x magnification while the 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor features a free-angle, articulating design to facilitate working from high and low angles. Additionally, the camera also features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to support direct image transfer to, as well as remote control and monitoring capabilities from, linked smartphones and tablets.

20.1MP 1" High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
The large 20.1MP 1" High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and refined Venus Engine image processor enable high-resolution still image and 4K video recording with native sensitivity to ISO 12800, which can be further expanded to ISO 25600. The two technologies also contribute to a marked reduction in noise through the use of Multi Process NR, Random Filter, and Aperture Filter systems to realize consistent color fidelity and image clarity. The sensor and processor combination also avail notable speed throughout the camera, including the ability to record up to 50 fps using an electronic shutter, 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, or 7 fps with a mechanical shutter and continuous AF.

Benefitting a hybrid workflow, users can switch between recording 4K movies and still imagery instantly and there is also the ability to make in-camera 8MP screen grabs from 4K movies.
Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 16x Zoom Lens
Benefitting the image capabilities of the FZ1000, an expansive 16x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens is built-in, and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-400mm with a maximum f/2.8-4 maximum aperture. The optical design comprises 15 elements in 11 groups, which includes five aspherical elements with eight aspherical surfaces and four extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. To further extend the effective range of the zoom lens, both Extra Optical Zoom (EZ) and Intelligent Zoom technologies work to increase the reach with minimal image degradation. Additionally, benefitting filmmakers, the speed of electronic zoom can be control within five different settings to better match the scene and recording needs.

Helping to maintain steady handling with the long zoom lens when recording Full HD and HD movies, HYBRID O.I.S. image stabilization is available and minimizes the appearance of camera shake. This image stabilization system compensates for camera movement across five different axes-horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation, and horizontal rotation-to benefit handheld recording. Additionally, a Level Shot Function works to detect an image's horizon line and maintain it even if the camera is tilted.
4K QFHD Video Recording
Benefitting from the 1" MOS image sensor, The FZ1000 is able to record 4K QFHD (3840 x 2160) video at 30p with a high bit rate of 100Mbps in the MP4 file format. Full HD 1080 video can also be recorded-at 60p, 30p, 24p, or 60i-in the AVCHD format, as well as Full HD, HD, and SD formats in the MP4 format. Additionally, high speed video recording is possible at 1080p, 720p, and 480p with sensor output frame rates of 120 fps, 240 fps, and 360 fps, respectively. When recording 4K video, use of a UHS-3 memory card is recommended and continuous recording up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds is possible.

A built-in stereo zoom microphone records audio in either AAC or Dolby formats and a zoom noise reduction system, as well as an Auto Wind Cut function, helps to reduce background and internal camera noise during recording. Furthermore, a 3.5mm microphone input is available for utilizing an optional external mic to garner even high quality, more controlled sound.
Light Speed AF with Lumix DFD Technology
Incorporated within the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens is a linear AF motor, which works to achieve fast and precise focusing performance utilizing Lumix DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. This high speed focusing system shortens overall focusing time by comparing two images with different sharpness levels and then determines accurate subject distance information. At the wide end of the zoom range, AF times up to 0.09 sec. are possible and at the telephoto end, an AF time of 0.17 sec. is achieved.

When using autofocus, both Face and Eye Detection functions can be used to base focus on recognized aspects of a subject, and general subject Tracking AF can also be used to maintain sharpness on moving subjects. Furthermore, 49-area focus, with flexible and scalable single area settings, and Pinpoint AF can also to determine focus across the image. Low Light AF helps to set focus in dim lighting, as low as -4 EV, and, when working with manual focus, Focus Peaking is available to more objectively determine critical focus by highlighting sharp edges of contrast.
Camera Design
Characterized by a large ergonomic grip, manual zoom/focus ring, eye-level viewfinder, and rear LCD monitor, this bridge-style camera features a familiar form factor that affords notable stability while shooting. The 0.39" 2,359k-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) provides 100% framing accuracy and has a 35mm-equivalent magnification of 0.7x for a bright, easy to view image that is especially well-suited to use in bright conditions. Alternatively, a rear 3.0" 921k-dot Free-Angle LCD screen is also available, which is ideally suited to working from high and low viewing angles. It, too, has 100% framing accuracy and an anti-reflective coating and wide viewing angle further enable its use in an array of lighting conditions. An eye sensor is also incorporated into the viewfinder's design to automatically detect when a user's eye is up to the finder and to switch between viewing methods.
Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless transferring of imagery from the FZ1000 to smartphones and tablets through the use of the Panasonic Image App, which also permits direct sharing to social media sites. Connection between devices is possible using a QR code system or through the use of NFC (Near Field Communication), which allows compatible devices to tap to connect. Linked mobile devices can also be used to geotag imagery in-camera, for plotting to interactive maps, and to remotely monitor and control the camera's zoom, focus, and shutter release from a distance.

    Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 reviews

    Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 213.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions in the 1st three days So far so good... Fast enough Lens and good quality images. The EVF is as good as I have used with the Sony A6000, Fuji X-T1 and Olympus OM-D. Nice and Bright and No Image Tearing! I just wish it had built-in GPS tagging like some of the P&S's. The image quality seems as good as my micro four thirds Panasonic and Olympus cameras without changing lenses. I have decided that I like Larger Mirrorless cameras. The Sony RX100iii was just too small and fiddly. I like the menus on the Panasonic cameras much better than my Olympus Pens & OMD's. So... for the cost, this is true value and I will stick with it for the foreseeable future as my G0-TO Walk Around Camera.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The image quality is good, but I experienced the black out. The 4 k is very nice, and the images has very low noise even in very poor lighting, I compare it with Canon D Mark III, in High ISO, not too bad on this 1 inch sensor. But I had couple times the view finder and back viewing screen totally black, and the camera is not doing anything, I check the battery is all right, but can't figure out what has happening. I got it only a week, still try to figure out how to using it, I had handle all kinds of cameras, but this time still try to make sense of this total blackness. Hopefully, it just some setting, otherwise, I have to return it. I got the feeling it maybe the bad apple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridge Camera I purchased the FZ1000 about a week ago. The photo quality and 4K video is fantastic. The camera is big but not too heavy. It is easy to hold because it has a very nice grip. There are many menus so you have to read the manual to get the best from this camera. Image stabilization is very good. I got some clear sharp hand held photos at full zoom. EVF is very good for a bridge camera. Battery life is a little short but I always carry an extra battery or two. LCD is sharp and clear. Camera is expensive but in my opinion its worth the price. This is not a 50X super zoom but the 16X with intelligent zoom is just right for me. Low light photos also look very good. Photos are very good up to ISO1600.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very practical and capable digital camera Reading other reviews and looking at other photographs made me make the jump to this camera. Through out the years I have owned many cameras and lenses 35mm an digital . This camera is all those years compressed into one camera. Well built and very light....with a fantastic reach and 4K video how sweet is that. It wasn't that long ago that I was carrying around my Nikon & Canon 35mm cameras and lenses and my shoulder mounted vhs video camera. Now it fits in my hand with unbelievable quality and clarity. Great photo video quality. I'm leaving my other cameras home from now on. FZ 1000 is my prime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW.... This cam is GREAT... I'm lovin' Don't listen to the few people that, obviously, can't read a owner's manual and complain about too many settings... They need to drop back down to the $99.00 point-and-shoot cam that they would be able to operate and stop leaving one star reviews...:) This camera ROCKS... I shoor live events and web promos. I bought it as a 'B' cam, for video production, to go with my GH4 'A' ca, It's so close to the GH4 and its really a breeze to operate. I can set in in 'auto' and walk away... Just have to stroll back every 30 mins and hit record again. I would HIGHLY recomment this, it's a thing of beauty... I'm lovin' it...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, but totally upgradeable!!! There are many things about the Panasonic FZ1000 that I love. The one thing I hate is the fact that the internal mic picks up all of the image stabilization noises. So I thought I would give an external mic a try!!! I love Rode shotgun microphones, and I was worried that the FZ1000 would not supply the needed power to the mic jack. However, rest assured that this microphone, the Rode Videomic Go, works brilliantly well with this camera, and provides a tremendous improvement to the quality of video captured. 100% satisfied! One thing to not is that you may have to turn your audio sensitivity down, I have mine set at -12dBi... Hope this helps someone...! In other words, if you have an FZ1000, buy a Rode Videomic Go now!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audio & HDMI is an afterthought I rented this camera for a week to put it through its pace--focusing primarily on its video capabilities. I was very impressed by the still/video image quality, as well as its very good sound quality with external mics (as many have stated in detail here). But there are two serious feature shortcomings if you plan to use this heavily for video:-There is no headphone jack to monitor audio.-The HDMI output works with an external monitor, but cuts off the moment you hit the Record button on the camera. Of course, you can't have everything at the FZ1000's pricepoint, but the question is what you are willing to compromise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise I resisted ordering this simply because of that old prejudice, It has to be a Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Olympus. However, I was growing tired of the noise on the 1/2.3 sensors that the megazooms carry, and discovered that the minimum focus distance on my new Nikon P900 precluded a lot of close in shots of butterflies and dragonflies. (I'm primarily a nature photographer.) So I bought this just because of the 1 sensor and 400mm capability, and couldn't be happier. Nice, clean pictures. I use this camera for insects and reptiles, and my Nikon P900 for distant birds and mammals. If you're used to the Nikon and Canon software, as I am, it will take some getting used to, but overall, this is a fine camera.
