If you're looking for an uncompromising DSLR Kit 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 all of its natural beauty.
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.
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.
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.
With the new FZ1000 you can capture stunning macro shots with a minimum focusing distance of 3cm. Get close enough to express spectacular details of blooming flowers, colourful insects or unique stones among riverbeds.
Besides its incredibly detailed 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840x2160, 25 fps in MP4)* 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.
* 4K video can be recorded up to 29 minutes 59 second.
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.
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.
With the new FZ1000 you can record high-speed videos at 100fps in Full HD quality and even play them back in dramatic slow motion - 5 times slower than the original recording.
Leave the camera for stationary recording of subjects such as astronomical observation, flowers coming into bloom or scudding clouds. The series of consequent images can be combined in the camera to produce a time lapse video.
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.
*Panasonic in-house examination with FZ200
**CIPA standard for wide-end
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.
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.
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 resolution, as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for superior colour reproduction. A free-angle 921K-dot LCD also enables artistic framing.
Low Light AF makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precisely in -4EV dimly lit situations which is as fark as a starry sky with no other light source.
Pinpoint AF allows you to set magnification from 3x to 10x enlargement in 0.1x steps. It assists, for example, setting focus right on the pupil in an eye.
With the "Panasonic Image App", you can utilize 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.
You can instantly upload and share your images on SNS using the "Panasonic Image App" on a smartphone / tablet.
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.
Creative Control lets you add artistic and original expression to photos and videos. You can also create vertical / horizontal panoramic photos with a unique touch just by swiveling the camera.
The manual ring, which is comfortably operated by the left hand, can also be switched for use in zooming and focusing. It provides natural, intuitive operation.
Focus Peaking visually highights the areas of the picture that is currently in focus - so you can be sure not to be off with your desired focus setting. It is also available in remote photo/video shooting with smartphone/tablet via Wi-Fi.
Highlight and shadow can be adjusted to achieve desired images without the use of image processing software. 3 patterns of settings can be customized in addition to 3 preset patterns (Higher Contrast, Lower Contrast, Brighten Shadow).
The FZ1000 can record RAW-format images inside the camera, to adjust the following settings: Color Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-range Control, Contrast, Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, Noise Reduction, Intelligent Resolution, Sharpness.
I was torn between the RX10 or FZ1000 and I can say I made the right decision! For this price point, if you were buying a low end SLR with kit lenses, then you'd be paying the same and getting far less. If you are ok with 24-400mm reach then this is a great camera. The 1" sensor is perfect balance between sensor size and lens reach. The Leica lens on this is f2.8-4.0 and it reaches f4.0 at around 175mm outward. That's still pretty bright though. I wanted a travel camera so I didn't need to carry my SLR plus lenses. The best camera is the one you actaully carry with you and this weighs about 2 Lbs total and you get wide angle, pretty good zoom, excellent macro, 4k video. The only things missing that I wish it had are built in ND filter (but it has 62mm filter threads so its ok), and weather sealing (just be careful with it). Dedicated aperture ring like on RX10 would be good but not a necessity because once you play with the FZ1000 you realize there are about 5 ways to do any one thing as you can customize everything. I usually leave my LCD on the summary screen (which is pretty much identical to what my canon shows) and use the EVF which I have to say is amazing! I 'almost' can't tell I am looking at a screen! One more thing I wish it had was a headphone jack. But it's not meant as a deciated video camera so I guess that's not a big deal. It does however take an external mic. SO in summary this camera does everything very good (and the photos ARE VERY GOOD!), but it won't do anything perfect. An SLR portrait prime lens will be perfect for prtraits... but that's it. You get the idea... That's the trade off between portability and quality. And this camera is that perfect balance! If you are looking for a lightweight all in one solution to use as a secondary camera or for travelling then take a serious look at the FZ1000!

Report As Inappropriate
This past week I upgraded my Lumix FZ200 to the newer FZ1000. Although I had been happy with the older model I wanted something which would provide me with greater detail, dynamic range. A camera with interchangeable lenses was not an option. I required something for vacation photos where I would be needing a wide angle lens as well as one which could show me architectural details in the distance. And the camera had to be sensitive enough to take pictures in dark European churches in November.
After taking a full memory card full of photos today I can say that my first impressions of this FZ1000 are very positive. Reviews had mentioned that the larger body size could be a handling issue; however, it is precisely the larger size, which has more to hold onto, that makes this larger camera easier to hold for both carrying and taking photos. The view finder is very bright and lets me easily see what I’m photographing, more easily than before. The menus offer more options and there is actually a scrolling brief description in the menu which explains to the uninitiated what various options will do. Switching from auto focus to manual focus is very easy. Zooming can be done either with the conveniently placed toggle switch by the shutter button as in the previous model or by using a manual ring around the barrel of the lens. I found myself using either one or the other without thinking depending on how I was holding the camera at the time. The circular dial for changing the aperture and exposure compensation is larger than on the previous model and more info is displayed in the viewfinder about what settings have changed.
Also, with the encouragement of the very straightforward and helpful sales agent who advised me to try the easy to use Adobe “Lightroom” program to take advantage of the full potential of the capabilities of the larger photo sensor by shooting RAW files, a whole new world has been opened to me.
I have been test the Fiji s1,, Canon sx60 and Lumix fz1000, I really like the fz1000, because the photo is prefect with 16x zoom and 4k video.
