Photo Shooting Performance
F2.8 - 4.0 25-400mm LEICA DC Lens
The newly developed Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens features 5 aspherical glass lenses, which are made possible by Panasonic's unqiue ashperical 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.
Large 1 inch 20.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor
The FZ1000 captures crisp and clear images with minimum noise even when shooting photos at ISO 12800 thanks to the newly incorporated 1 inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor. Becuase of its large size, the sensor processes a very high amount of light and helps producing impressive defocus shots.
Venus Engine - Advanced Image Processing
The newly developed Venus Engine features multiple noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter to achieve high colour 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.
Video Shooting Performance
Capturing High-resolution Photos from 4K Video
Cut out magical moments in 8 megapixel equivalent resolution from 4K video footage. Once selecting the 4K Photo Mode, recording set to the optimum parameter for photo shooting. You can also choose either 4:3 or 3:" in addition to 16:9. Each JPEG image cropped out of the video footage complies with EXIF information. Marking function is also avaiable.
Smooth Electronic Zooming in 5 speed steps
During video recording the 16x optical zoom function is available, too. As an advanced function, the FZ1000 offers controlled zoom operation in five elctronic zoom speeds from low to fast to match each shooting situation.
Optical Image Stabilisation with Tilt Correction
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 tpes 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.
High Speed Video in Full HD
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 - 4 times slower than the original recording.
Time Lapse Shot
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.
Response & Mobility
Linear Motor Focus System and DFD Technology
The FZ1000's newly integrated linear motor into the focus system achieves approx. 300% faster focusing. The new DFD (Dept 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.
Max. 1/4000 sec Fast Shutter Speed
High shutter speed at max. 1/4000 sec (at wide-end) 1/3200 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. 1/6000 sec with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight.
12-fps Burst 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.
2.359K-dot OLED Live View Finder & free-angle LCD
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 wjile enhancing the 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
Low Light AF makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precisely in -3 EV dimly lit situations, which is as dark as a starry sky with no other light source.
Pinpoint AF allows you to set magnification from 3x to 10x enlargement in. It assists, for example, setting focus right on the pupil in an eye.
Networking & Control
Unwire your creativity with Wi-Fi
Remote Shooting / Remote View
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.
Creatie Control / Creative Panorama
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.
