Bright LEICA DC Lens – F2.8-4.0 25-400mm

The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens is created especially for the DMC-FZ1000. It has an F2.8-4.0 brightness that resists blurring even with telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 25mm wide-angle to 16x optical zoom*. Comprising 15 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses 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 mold technology. * 35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm.

Light Speed AF with LUMIX DFD Focus Technology

A new linear motor integrated into the focus system achieves approx. 275% faster1 focusing, compared to the conventional DMC-FZ200. In addition new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology2 shortens the time to set the 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. 0.09 sec3 (wide-end) / approx. 0.171,4 sec (tele-end) is achieved.

5-AXIS Correction / Tilt Correction

The HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) + with 5-axis correction* gives you blur-less, one-handed video shooting ability. It detects and compensates for the camera’s 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. The Level Shot Function* detects the image’s horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted. It takes stable video even in high-angle, blind recording. *HYBRID O.I.S.+ and Level Shot Function do not work in 4K video recording.

    Without question the best bridge camera I've ever owned or used. The 1-inch sensor definitely makes the difference. The lens is really high quality, and the zoom range is good. Of course you shouldn't expect DSLR-quality images from this camera, but you can get images from this camera that'll look close to images you get from a DSLR. The camera feels good in your hands and feels really sturdy. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. The camera shoots 4K video, and you're able to pull high-quality stills from video footage. The articulating LCD screen is really nice and allows you to use the camera in different positions without having to get low or high yourself. If you're looking for a great bridge camera or a great camera in general, you should seriously consider the FZ1000.

    I am using this camera for those fast action shots when my granddaughters play soccer and run track.Clear images and great colour! I am also impressed with the macro shots!

    I love this camera. For an idea of where I'm coming from, I'm a very amateur photographer. I almost always shoot in Auto, and I almost never do any processing, apart from some cropping. I've owned a few cameras prior to this one; I had the Canon G 15, which was excellent, but I wanted more zoom. I then got the SX50 HS, which was fantastic. I loved the zoom. But I decided I wanted to do better than the small sensor of the SX50, so I bought the D3300 bundle from Best Buy over Christmas. It's a nice camera, but I hate having to switch lenses, and carry all that stuff around. Also (this might not be a big deal for a lot of people), there's no electronic level/digital horizon on the D3300, which is really frustrating for me personally. I like to go hiking, and when I had the SX50, it was very reassuring seeing that level and knowing my shots wouldn't be crooked. So I did some more research, and settled on the FZ1000. I went to the zoo, and got a lot of great, tack sharp pictures. I'm very impressed with it, to the extent that I'm thinking about selling the D3300. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a camera. Good sensor size, plenty of zoom, lots of controls and options, HDR, a panorama mode, a great electronic level, fast autofocus, a fully rotating LCD screen, and a nice viewfinder. The manual focus is a touch clunky, but I do appreciate the focus peaking. As an aside, I also tested the Canon G3 X briefly, and the greater zoom range was basically the only thing I liked about it. It felt crappy in the hand, didn't have a fully rotating LCD screen, etc. I didn't like it at all, especially for the money.I think the only thing I would want the FZ1000 to have is a touch more reach, for wildlife and moon shots. If they could extend it to 600 or 700mm, it'd be perfect for me. But I'm giving it five stars anyway because it's an awesome camera for the money, and an awesome camera in general.Update, 5/16/2016: I mentioned in my original review that if the FZ1000 had a bit more reach, it'd be perfect for me. Enter the Sony RX10 Mark III, which has a 24-600mm equivalent range lens. I bought it on upon its release and I took it to the Jacksonville Zoo to try it out, taking more than 500 pictures. At the end, I concluded that while it has fantastic range, the FZ1000 is superior to it in some ways. I think the autofocus of the Panasonic is faster, and I think its low light performance is superior; I had some issues in the darker reptile house, something which never was an issue with the FZ1000. I also prefer the fully articulating screen of the Panasonic, and of course it's less than half the price. The range is great, but if it's not absolutely critical, I still strongly recommend the FZ1000. It's a heck of a deal and I have no problems retaining the five-star rating I gave it originally.

    How may ways can I sing it's praise!!? A magnitude better image than the best 1 / 2.3 and I own the best of them. And I dumped my interchangeable lens cameras on Ebay. Why bother when you can get the same or better quality in one package?I did my grand daughter's outdoor wedding 3 days ago, 4 hours of video and stills. While I was getting the shots, the official wedding photographer was changing lenses! And lugging around what looked like a shopping cart for equipment. I had it all in one hand!Some of the events, like the “first dance” came after dark, yet I got truly good video and stills with the 4.0 aperture and 6400 ISO. And the images in daylight were great, with plenty of resolution and lack of noise to permit important crops when necessary.This is the best camera for an enthusiast who wants excellent results without a mule to carry the gear. I didn't miss a shot in 4 hours. The camera is fast and highly flexible. I have used the camera for about two months, and am still discovering new possibilities!What isn't it? Well it isn't small or light. And the auto white balance is a little cool for my taste. And I don't think a rank amateur will be able to take advantage of all it's features, even though they will get great photos on the automatic settings and preset scene settings. And they can grow with the camera as they add skills. I am wracking my brain to think of criticism. I wish they provided a wrist strap instead of a neck strap, I'd like a audio output plug to monitor video audio.....all trivial when compared to this great camera's strengths. The only big problem is I don't see how they will top this camera in the future!! :)

    We did a lot of research before deciding to buy this camera. We have two very nice DSLR and a cybershot, a few little purse point and shoots, but I wanted a camera without the fuss of the dslr, but better than the purse cameras. The cybershot is an early one, it's okay but tends to wash out on really bright days.If you're looking for a review that sounds like a technician from Cnet wrote it, don't read this. Honestly, Raw, change this, fix that, no.. I wanted something I can point, zoom, get up close, that takes a good picture or video.Our needs- after analyzing our needs we realized about 75-80% of our shots are nature, beach, outside settings. Mostly daylight. We therefore weren't terribly worried about low light, we did want something that would do well inside, but outside was more important.It had to be fast. I want to shoot a dolphin jumping from the water, a bird flying over head, a butterfly spreading it's wings, Izzy doing cute stuff. Not complicated, jim can play with the fancy settings, special effects etc, I want to be able to turn it on, point, and shoot. Maybe that isn't using this camera to it's potential, but again, this is what I desired.On the camera C1 and C2 are programmable, so I can always have what I want, when I want it.We needed a picture with both good zoom, and good up close..I love the way it turns on and off, silly maybe, but with other cameras I'd turn them off when trying to take a shot because the buttons were in close proximity. This is a little switch that goes back and forth.the camera is a bit bulky, but I'm not taking anything off for that, it's lighter than my dslr cameras and I like the heft in my hands.Another must for us was a viewfinder. More and more cameras seem to be going to LED screens only, I want the option.The screen is excellent, it pulls out, and it also twists for selfies or getting a picture of something behind me.the video quality is amazing.. seriously, like being there in person.some cons other people mention are the lack of head jack and the video shutting off after 30 min, neither of which are of any difference to me. I don't play back on the camera in a situation I would need headphones or ear buds, and I am not using this as a camcorder for long periods of time.I am not a professional photographer, but the picture quality I can get with the fz1000 is everything I wanted.

    Wow!! This is my first camera of this type. Bought it for work. Features galore on this camera. Great images. Relatively shallow learning curve. Bought Rode mic to complete the package. Would buy again without hesitation. Would recommend for casual user that is looking for more professional features than point and shoot.

    If you make your buying decision on image quality, you won't be disappointed in the FZ1000. I bought this to replace my existing travel camera and wanted something that was clearly an IQ upgrade. I shoot a couple of other cameras including a full frame Canon 5DM3, but for travel I wanted something more compact, without interchangeable lenses, with a reasonable amount of focal length range and a wide set of features that would appeal to a manual shooter. It also had to work with my non-TTL speedlights and radio triggers for my studio flashes. All of those things I knew I would get with the FZ1000 before I pushed the "buy" button on Amazon, and although I was impressed with the sample RAW files from other shooters, I was really only interested in how my files would hold up as I processed them.The image quality is excellent and working with the files is a pleasure. I'm not going to play Mr. DXO, but I'm thrilled at the sharpness from the lens. For a superzoom, it is really good. Like every other superzoom, IQ is weakest at its extremes, 25 and 400mm, but even there the images are very good. The faults that pop out are the barrel distortion at the wide end and the minor softness and chromatic aberration way out at 400mm. In between, well, it is impressive. I also like that the images display beautiful tonal gradations. I do a lot of portraiture when I travel and this is really important to me in skin tones. I photographed a political candidate in my home studio this week and grabbed a couple of shots with the FZ1000. The image white balance was more natural than the images from my 5DM3. The dynamic range is another plus and not only do the files have shadow detail, but they don't carry a lot of noise in the shadows either...a common complaint of mine with my earlier travel camera. During editing, I always do some edits at 100%. It is there that any differences between my full frame camera and the FZ1000 in IQ show. What I find fascinating is how well the FZ1000 images hold up in comparison. No, they aren't quite as good, but they are still excellent and they'll easily give me 16X20 prints if not larger.The FZ1000 is a really full featured camera. But, as a manual shooter with a camera on one neck strap and a light meter hanging from another, I'll never use scene modes, digital zoom, or the other features that appeal to the social networking shooters. Here's what I use and this camera does it all: 1. Back button focusing with focus removed from shutter button (this is a deal breaker for me). 2. Manual focus for precision focusing of cityscapes, landscapes, etc. 3. Easy remote control from my tablet using the Panasonic Image App. 4. Pin point focusing (single point) so that the camera focuses on exactly what I want it to. I don't do video, so if you've read this far hoping to learn about that, I'm sorry for your disappointment.The only thing about this camera that is odd for me is how light it is. It does not have that solid, heavy feel that I've grown accustomed to over many years. It isn't flimsy...I think it will be durable, but it's just different. Since it's going traveling, that light weight could be a really good thing.My impression at this point is very favorable. The camera does what I want and does it the way I want it to. The images are stunning and show how much development has been done on small sensors. Highly recommended by me....Edit: I've been running the FZ1000 through it's paces and have come across a feature called "peaking". It's a manual focusing assist for old guys like me who are on their umteenth pair of eye glasses. When you bring a subject into focus manually while using this (easy setup) the item subject becomes illuminated with a corona of light. I can now zoom out to 400mm, manually focus and then shoot with 100% certainty that my subject far away is in perfect focus. I don't know how many other manufacturers offer this in their products, but this feature is invaluable to me.

    A photographer friend remarked on that sunrise photo:> Wow, very nice. What impresses me beyond the aesthetics is that the> sensor has enough sensitivity and dynamic range to capture the birds> without any blur against a fairly dark background and with the sun> in saturation - and that the software balanced all this so well.The size of the camera is a bit large for my hands, but not an issue. If it were lighter in weight that would be nice too. These minuses are tiny in comparison to how amazing the camera is at delivering feelings of delight at some of the images that I am able to capture with it.

    The Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 is such an amazing bridge camera, it eclipses entry level DSLRs! It is a 1 inch sensor, has good zoom range, decent aperture size, image stabilization (you only get this on the Nikon D3200 with $700+ lenses), 4k Video, 4k Photo screen grabs, and RAW. Best of all is the fast autofocus, which is the best in its class and even some DSLRs. If you are not looking to spend thousands on extra lenses, then seriously consider this option instead. You will not be disappointed!I had purchased a Nikon D3200 a couple years ago to take my photography to the next level. I just shoot family stuff like sports, events, and outdoor scenery when we go hiking or something. I was displeased with the auto focus speed of photo mode, and the focus always taking forever to adjust in video. Don't get me wrong, the Nikon with the kit lens and a prime 1.8 can take amazing photos! However, it was not getting the job done for sports and video. I decided to check out bridge cameras more, as my coworker showed me his new FZ1000. I was immediately amazed by the zoom, optical image stabilization, and auto focus speed! To top it all off, it shot 4k and videos 10 mins longer. Nikon was limited to 20 mins.I am loving my decision to drop down to a bridge camera so far, as the FZ1000 can take just as amazing photos. However, the catch is that it can be a challenge to get the right settings. I have had issues with hi levels of noise for low light photos. I am sure that it is my fault, as I did not adjust the corrects settings. Furthermore, some of the pictures taken at 400mm seemed a little blurry to me. Again, I am sure that it is due to operator error. So be warned that it can take some getting use to. I feel that I was able to get achieve competency faster on the Nikon platform, than the Panasonic.

    Having been the owner of a Nikon p900 superzoom I was disappointed with the image quality with the small sensor. With the one-inch sensor on this camera and up to 400 millimeter lens you still have the digital Zoom capability, maybe not as far-reaching as the Nikon but gives you a well extended super zoom with better image quality in this camera. I find the switches and the sound but especially the quickness of the zoom to auto focus is what makes this a great bridge camera.
