Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 digital camera with 4K video shooting

 

If a digital SLR isn't your thing, grab the next best thing, which is this thing

Big zoom ; Fast focusing ; 4K video and plenty of other features

SD card is in the battery compartment ; Switching to 4K video takes a few steps ; EVF is a little small

This is a camera for those of you who want a shooter than can perform well for both still shots and video recordings. It has a long zoom, plenty of speed, and can capture pictures with great clarity. It's a great alternative to a digital SLR, and a...

FIRST LOOK: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

 

A sophisticated 16x optical zoom digicam with SLR-like styling, a relatively large sensor and support for 4K video recording.

With so many common features, potential purchasers are likely to ask whether the cheaper FZ1000 can deliver the same performance as the acclaimed Panasonic DMC-GH4, which has been reviewed by some specialists and judged to be 'the sharpest video...

[REVIEW—PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-FZ1000]

 

This 20 megapixel camera has a 24—400mm Leica-branded lens with an aperture range of f2.8—f4. There is 5 axis optical stabilisation. It is called a “compact” but it is larger than a full frame Sony mirrorless camera. The very high resolution viewfinder...

Jpeg image quality is excellent. Even at full zoom extension and high ISO pictures are sharp and clean. This lens is impressive. And its superb electronic viewfinder is a standout. We couldn’t test the 4K video but we can report that using full high...

The size of this camera is perplexing. It is as big and heavy as some DSLRs and much bulkier than most mirrorless system cameras. It has been suggested that this is a marketing ploy to appeal to people who think that DSLR bigness is a guarantee of...

If the bulk is no deterrent and you want an all-in-one fixed lens camera that produces good images then you can’t go wrong with the FZ1000. We couldn’t check RAW image quality because the only converter available was the useless SilkyPix included in...

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Exceptional.

 

Have now owned this for 6 months, and it's taken most of that time to get my head round it, but I conclude it is exceptional, the best camera I have ever owned ( including low end film slrs and dslrs) and amazing value. It has introduced me to RAW...

ticks the boxes

 

Needing to upgrade my camera, I very nearly bought a DSLR. However this camera caught my attention because of its 1 inch CMOS. Initially I missed the 42x zoom of my previous camera, but tight cropping is usually very successful. Manual focusing is...

unbelieveable

 

Now owning this camera for a couple of months, i had a huge shoot on the weekend (4-5/10/14) at the Adelaide International Raceway, Spring Nationals. I shot over 2,200 photos using different modes from manual to AI mode. With high speed of the drag...
