This long-zoom camera may just sway you from an entry-level dSLR

 

With a large 1-inch sensor, a versatile lens and a ton of shooting options including 4K video capture, the FZ1000 might just be the only camera you need for photos and video.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 produces excellent photos and video; it has an expansive feature set to satisfy snapshooters and enthusiasts; it offers a lot of direct access to important settings and has a fantastic electronic viewfinder.

Its maximum f/2.8 aperture is only available at its widest focal length. The plastic body and large lens makes it feel a bit off-balance. Controls and shooting options might be intimidating for some.

With excellent photo and video quality and a deep feature set, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is the perfect mix if you want dSLR-like controls and better than point-and-shoot performance with the convenience of a single fixed lens.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a formidable still and video camera thanks to a big 1-inch sensor and 4K recording capability.

Superior image quality at higher ISOs. Very fast autofocus. 11.8fps burst shooting. 1-inch image sensor. 16x zoom range. 4K video capability. Vari-angle LCD. Sharp EVF. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC.

Bulky. Lacks built-in ND filter. Not weather sealed. Physical controls could be better. 4K video is cropped and requires manual exposure control.

Remote control via your iOS or Android phone or tablet is also possible via the free Panasonic Image app. Full manual control is available; you can adjust the lens, control the exposure, tap the phone's screen to choose a focus point, and access the...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review

 

At first glance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 looks a lot like Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 large sensor, long zoom camera, but there's a precedent within the company's own range. It's been eight years since the FZ50 was introduced, so we can't imagine...

The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 is a versatile and more than capable alternative to a dSLR or ILC. Fantastic image quality and performance will draw you in, while a great set of features and creative shooting modes will keep you trying new things. The...

Panasonic FZ1000 Review Lumix DMC-FZ1000 4k Camera with Leica Lens

 

What we're looking at is a terrific 4K camera, and it is a follow-up to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 , the first compact system to have 4K video recording. Often times a company's first foray into a new type of market can come off as clumsy, and yet...

4k Capability ; Special LEICA custom-made lens ; 1-inch sensor, 20.1 Megapixels ; Depth From Focus (DFD) Technology ; HYBRID OIS prevents blurry images ; Macro Photography at 3 inches ; Many artistic filters ; Smartphone/tablet control via app

Not a lot of big zoom features ; No touchscreen ; Many buttons could confuse amateurs ; Unable to access 4K footage frame-by-frame

Like I just said, the biggest flaw is something that is very small (not having a touchscreen). If that is the worst, then all in all, the user’s experience with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is bound to be overwhelmingly positive.

Bridge cameras have often had a bit of a bad reputation in the past, but models such as those found in the FZ range make a lot of sense. They give you the flexibility of multiple focal lengths without the hassle of having to change (or indeed, carry)...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 is the world's first bridge camera to feature 4K video recording. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a super-zoom camera featuring a wide-angle 16x zoom lens equivalent to a focal range of 25-400mm, a 20.1 megapixel 1-inch...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a premium bridge camera for a premium price. And yet, for anyone who requires 4K-video shooting without the need to change lenses, the FZ1000 is a so far unique product within its bridge camera class. But it’s not just...

Panasonic FZ1000 Review

 

In 2013, the Sony RX10 set a very high benchmark for just what a long-zoom camera could be, with a large 1"-type image sensor and generous 8.3x zoom lens. Now, Panasonic puts forth a spectacularly-capable challenger in the 16x zoom Panasonic FZ1000,...

Extremely compact compared to interchangeable-lens camera with similar lenses; Comfortable grip and controls; Bright, far-reaching 16x zoom lens; Excellent electronic viewfinder; Versatile tilt/swivel LCD; Excellent performance; Great image quality

Body materials feel a bit plasticky; Connector compartment door is fiddly; Limited raw buffer depth; Battery life below average for class; No built-in neutral density filter

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 is a DSLR-styled super-zoom camera with a 16x / 25-400mm range, a decent-sized 1in sensor and 4k video recording capabilities. Announced in June 2014, it represents a new premium category in the Lumix super-zoom lineup,...

Excellent image quality and noise performance ; 2359k dot EVF with eye sensor and eye-detect AF ; Fully-articulated screen ; 4K100Mbit/s UHD video ; 100 / 120fps 1080p for slow motion ; Fast 49-area AF with DFD for improved Continuous AF ; 7 frame auto...

No weather-sealing ; Slow zoom controls ; No Auto ISO in movie manual exposure mode ; No silent exposure control for movies ; Screen isn't touch-sensitive ; Can't switch between regional video frame rates ; No built-in ND filter

The Lumix FZ1000 is Panasonic's classiest bridge camera to date and while undoubtedly inspired by Sony's RX10, it takes the concept of a high-end option even further. The use of a 1in sensor allows the FZ1000 to enjoy much better quality than the...
