The DMC-FZ1000 incorporates newly developed F2.8-4.0 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with 16x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm). Comprising 15 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lens 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 mould technology.
The 1-inch large 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor dramatically improves S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear image with minimum noise even when shot at ISO25600 Extended. Rich amount of light help produce impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. The Venus Engine is also newly developed to feature 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 DMC-FZ1000 features 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160, 30 fps (NTSC) / 25 fps (PAL) in MP4). It also ushers in a new form of photo creativity by letting you cut out 8-megapixel equivalent images from 4K video footage to capture spur-of-the-moment shots. Powerful 16x optical zoom with 5-step speed control enables smooth zoom control. The 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S+ with Active Mode**, Creative Video mode and High Speed video in full-HD are also available. *As of June 12, 2014. **This function does not work in 4K video recording.
A dedicated linear motor into the focus system and newly combined DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology achieve ultra-high-speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec***. Together with the short release time lag and quick start-up time of approx.0.66 sec, the DMC-FZ1000 never misses fleeting shooting photo opportunities. High speed burst shooting can be shot at 12 fps in 20.1-megapixel full resolution. It also complies with max. 1/4000 (mechanical) and 1/16000 (electronic) high speed shutter speed. *** Based on the CIPA standard, when using Live View Finder.
The DMC-FZ1000 boasts a 2,359k-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) that achieves high speed response with minimum time lag. The 3.0-inch 921k-dot free-angle LCD rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down offers approx. 100% field of view. Operability is also improved on DMC-FZ1000 allowing intuitive control. The zoom lever on the top allows smooth zoom in/out with 5-step speed adjustment. The zoom ring can be used for manual focus control, too. The Drive Mode Dial and AFS/AFC/MF Lever enable direct shooting setting.
