Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 (Black)
The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 is premium level super-zoom camera featuring a large 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and a fast 16X optical zoom lens.
- 4K video
- Articulating 3.0-inch LCD Screen
- 16x Optical Zoom lens - 25mm Wide angle equivalent
- High resolution electronic viewfinder
- Hybrid OIS - Reduces Blur caused by camera shake
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 manages to incorporate a large 1-inch sensor together with 16x optical zoom which help to create some of the most breathtaking images.
From little birds on tree branches to distant sunsets, The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 never fails to impress with its outstanding image quality.
The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens features 5 aspherical glass lenses – made possible by Panasonics unique lens mould technology. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 also features 4K video recording as well as stereo audio recording.
The DMC-FZ1000 incorporates a newly developed 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS sensor with 20.1-megapixel resolution. The 1-inch sensor is 4x larger than conventional 1/2.3-inch sensors in size. This large sensor results in a dramatic reduction of noise, even when shooting at ISO 12,800. The rich amount of light that it lets in helps to produce impressive defocus with a shallow depth of field.
The Venus Engine quad-core image processor has been newly developed for the DMC-FZ1000 to dramatically boost its performance, especially for the high speed signal processing that is required for 4K video recording. The advanced Multi-processor NR (Noise Reduction) technology applies effective noise reduction and detail processing, and a new Random Filter blends chromatic noise into the image more naturally, resulting in a maximum ISO 25,600 (Extended).
A newly adopted aperture filter is capable of controlling a wider frequency range, adjusting the sharpness according to the frequency level to achieve a true stereoscopic effect. The Venus Engine also improves colour reproduction with accurate evaluation of each colour even if it is similar in colour phase, saturation and luminosity. The accuracy of auto white balance is dramatically improved by metering 12 times for a more precise detection area.
New 25mm Ultra Wide-Angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT Lens
The newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens system (F2.8-F4.0 aperture) with 16x optical zoom (the 35mm equivalent of 25-400mm) is comprised of 15 elements in 11 groups, including four ED lenses and five aspherical lenses with eight aspherical surfaces, resulting in a high MTF value.
Five aspherical glass lenses is a record number in the history of LUMIX digital compact cameras, and is made possible by Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mould technology. This enables the DMC-FZ1000 to achieve beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with an invisible edge line. This first lens group located at the front consists of four lenses to minimise chromatic aberration, especially at the tele-end.
