For even greater versatility, switch to manual operation in Creative Video mode and dramatic slow motion in full-HD 120 fps video**.

When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3. * Sold separately. ** The recording format is 30p.

8 Megapixel Hybrid Photo Frame Capture From 4K Video

The DMC-FZ1000 offers a true Hybrid Photography experience for everyone. It combines 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160, 30 fps in MP4)* with the ability to switch easily between video and still capture for the ultimate in image creativity. The FZ1000 also enables in-camera playback screen grabs of (3840 x 2160) 8-megapixel equivalent hybrid photography photos from 4K video footage to capture the spur-of-the-moment shots often missed with ordinary still photos.

* 4K video can be recorded up to 29 minutes 59 seconds. When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.

Express Yourself – Anywhere You Go

The FZ1000 is the Panasonic LUMIX flagship bridge camera with ultimate image quality. The superb images produced with a large 1-inch sensor and all-new lens fully express the limitless depth and sunlit warmth of nature. Its 16x optical zoom brings everything up close, from tiny birds on tree branches to animals crossing the distant horizon. Choose photos or videos in crisp 4K resolution. The DMC-FZ1000 is all you need to capture the world around you, in all its natural beauty.

Large 1-inch 10.1-megapixel MOS Sensor

The newly incorporated 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600. Rich amounts of light help produce impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. The result is truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting conditions.

Bright LEICA DC Lens – F2.8-4.0 25-400mm

The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens is created especially for the DMC-FZ1000. It has an F2.8-4.0 brightness that resists blurring even with telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 25mm wide-angle to 16x optical zoom*. Comprising 15 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses and 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit achieves high MTF value. Adoption of 5 aspherical glass lenses achieves beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with invisible edge line, which is made possible by Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology.

* 35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm.

Light Speed AF with LUMIX DFD Focus Technology

A new linear motor integrated into the focus system achieves approx. 275% faster* focusing, compared to the conventional DMC-FZ200. In addition new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology shortens the time to set the 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. 0.09 sec** (wide-end) / approx. 0.17*/*** sec (tele-end) is achieved.

* Panasonic in-house examination. ** CIPA standard. When using Live View Finder. *** Infinity to 2m shooting time lag.

5-AXIS Correction / Tilt Correction

The HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) + with 5-axis correction* gives you blur-less, one-handed video shooting ability. 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* detects the image's horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted. It takes stable video even in high-angle, blind recording.

* HYBRID O.I.S.+ and Level Shot Function do not work in 4K video recording.

Unwire your Creativity with Remote WIFI Shooting

  • Smartphone Enabled Remote Shooting / Remote View
    With the Panasonic Image App, you can utilize a smartphone or tablet as a remote controller to zoom, set the focus and shoot from a distance.
  • Easy Share
    Instantly upload and share images on social media using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Easy Connection
    Simply touching an NFC-compatible smartphone / tablet to the camera, or scanning the QR code connects to WiFi.
  • Geotagging
    Tag location information to the image by utilizing the GPS log of a smartphone / tablet and share it to the preferred social media.

Macro Photography to 3cm

tunning macro shots can be shot with minimum focusing distance of 3cm. You can enjoy shooting close-up shots with the DMC-FZ1000 only to express spectacular details of flowers, insects and so on.

Multiple Accessory Options to Choose From

For a more rewarding Hybrid Photography experience, add an optional External Flash (DMW-FL580L) with built-in LCD video light.

The FZ1000 videos offer high-quality, highly realistic Dolby® Digital stereo sound from a built-in microphone. A stereo zoom microphone features a zoom noise reduction system, and a Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most of the noise from background wind.

I am fond of taking photos at concerts and auditoriums in low light conditions. So, I required a good quality camera which would allow me to shoot high-quality photos and videos even in low light conditions. One of my friends told me that the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 camera would serve the purpose. So, I read many of this digital camera’s reviews and found it ideal for my requirements. I am now very happy to have bought this superb camera.

I often take pictures outdoors at sporting events so I needed a digital camera that could capture the action accurately without any blurs. I was trying to decide on buying a Canon T5i DSLR or Sony RX10. However, I was not too keen on the idea of changing lenses. While researching, I came across this Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 camera which looks perfect for my needs. I am planning to purchase this digital camera soon.

I had been searching for an excellent bridge camera that would enable me to capture some really good pictures and videos. For this, I read various digital camera reviews and came across the reviews of Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 camera. Even though the selling point of this camera is 4K video, I found that it provides superb still photos which are much better than a DSLR or CSC with a super zoom-type lens. So, I bought this excellent digital camera.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Recently, a friend of mine purchased the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000K camera. I also got to use this high-end digital camera which is considered among the best fixed-lens digital cameras. Apart from its lightweight body, I feel it gives great stills with superb 4K videos. This is an ideal camera for someone like me who doesn’t want the overhead of carrying separate interchangeable lenses.
