DMC-FZ1000EB - Ultimate Hybrid Bridge Camera
If you're looking for an uncompromising DSLR Kit replacement, check out the LUMIX FZ1000. Featuring a large 1-inch sensor and a bright LEICA lens with 16x optical zoom, it brings everything up close with premium image quality. Choose photo or video recording in crisp 4K resolution to capture the world around you in a its natural beauty.
Capture Powerful Impressions
The LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens is created especially for the DMC-FZ1000. It has a bright F2.8- 4.0 lens for sharp images throughout the zoom range, and an angle of view that extends from 25mm wide-angle to a 16x optical zoom of 400mm telephoto. Panasonic's optical technology also offers sharp focusing and exceptional defocus effects. This single lens greatly expands your photo-taking capabilities.
Large 1-Inch 20.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor
The FZ1000 captures crisp and clear images with minimum noise even when shooting photos at ISO12800 thanks to the incorporated 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor. Because of its large size, the sensor processes a very high amount of light and helps producing impressive defocus shots.
Vibrant and Realistic Motion
Experience the world's first* 4K video recording with the FZ1000. Enjoy true-to-life, high-resolution images in smooth, silky motion (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160, 25fps in MP4)** For even greater versatility, switch to manual operation in Creative Video Mode and record dramatic slow motion Full HD video with 100fps. * In a compact camera as of June 12, 2014 ** 4K video recording up to 29 min 59sec
4K Video Recording and 8 Megapixel Still Images
Besides its incredibly detailed 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840x2160, 25 fps in MP4)* the FZ1000 is also proposing another way of photo creation. By cutting out a 3840x2160 8 Megapixel equivalent still image from the 4K video footage you can photograph the spur-of-the-moment which often missed in still image photography. * 4K video can be recorded up to 29 minutes 59second.
High Speed Response
Be ready to grab the next sudden photographic opportunity. Adding the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology to the conventional Light Speed AF has achieved both higher precision and greater speed at approx. 0.09 sec*. Combined with a 0.66 sec quick start-up time* and 12fps burst shooting in full resolution turn those once-in-a-lifetime moments into memories that last forever. * CIPA standard.
Linear Motor Focus System and DFD Technology
The FZ1000's integrated liner motor into the focus system achieves approx. 300% faster* focusing. The DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology also shortens the time to set focus. It instantaneously calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating 2 images with different sharpness levels. As a result, ultra high speed AF of approx. 0.08 sec**is achieved. * Panasonic in-house examination with FZ200. ** CIPA standard for wide-end.
F2.8-4.0 25-400mm LEICA DC Lens
The LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens features 5 aspherical glass lenses, which are made possible by Panasonic's aspherical lens mold technology. In combination with the large 1-inch MOS sensor your photos will get a shallow depth of field with an impressive defocus effect featuring invisible edge lines.
UNWIRE YOUR CREATIVITY with Wi-Fi
Remote Shooting / Remote View With the "Panasonic Image App", you can utilise a smartphone / tablet as controller to zoom, set the focus and shoot from a distance. Easy Connection - Simply touching an NFC-compatible smartphone / tablet to the camera, or scanning the QR code connects Wi-Fi.

The built in flash is not brilliant (no pun intended) but useful for indoor shots when you have forgotten your main flash unit. There are a selection of buttons on the camera, some of which are programmable to your preferences. I did find that I sometimes accidentally pressed the ones on the rear of the camera, particularly when I was putting away/taking out the camera from my camera bag.
The special effects are interesting although probably frowned upon by a purist. I found experimenting with them was fun anyway.
The main dials operate the functions (intelligent auto, program, aperture priority, shutter priority, manual, 2 setting for entering your own options, artistic mode, scene choice, movies, you get the idea). Another dial does the normal photo, burst (variable rate up to 50fps), EV bracket (adjustable), time delay (adjustable).
Add on a stabilizer, time lapse, face recognition, red eye removal and a few hundred other options and you have a camera that will keep you busy for years if you want to play.
Look up the details on Panasonic's web page or, better still, download a copy of the basic operating instructions (basic???, it's 95 pages long!) if you want to know everything about this camera.
Obviously this camera will not be better than a modern hi spec SLR camera using the very best of lenses. However, it is only a fraction of the price and the picture quality is really excellent. For me the ability to shoot in RAW (as well as jpeg) was very important. The construction is reasonably robust but don't be too rough with it (my SLR had a magnesium body which was very sturdy).
I've used the video a few times and undoubtedly the quality is great, but video isn't really my reason for owning the camera. The video/jpeg frame capture facility is brilliant but be aware that you'll need a computer with significant CPU and RAM to do much with videos.
There are plenty of gizmos and effect settings on the camera if that's what you want - but personally I'd rather add those later to the original image. It's comfortable to use (and carry). One minor criticism would be that the battery could and should be better. At a rating of 2 watt hours it does lag behind many of it's competitors, again this isn't an issue for me as I always have a fully charged spare at hand.
The reason I'm writing this review now (2019) after 3.5 years of ownership is that I had noticed there is now a LUMIX FZ2000 available so I wanted to see whether it was worth 'upgrading' from this model. Personally I can't see any significant reason for me to splash out. Yes the 2000 does have a max zoom equivalent of 480mm as against the 1000's 400mm. However the minimum wide angle is only 35mm on the 2000 (25mm on the 1000). So it's down to personal preferences if you're debating between the 1000 and 2000.
To conclude, this camera certainly won't be the best bridge you can buy, however for the price I would certainly say it is a brilliant model for the serious enthusiast.
Only weird quirk is: I like to turn off the camera sound (click!!) but the sound must be turned on to use the panorama feature. All other things about this camera far outweigh that fiddly detail.
Beautiful wide lens depth of color and many features, and auto as well as manual settings.
