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.
