With excellent photo and video quality and a deep feature set, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is the perfect mix if you want dSLR-like controls and better than point-and-shoot performance with the convenience of a single fixed lens.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 produces excellent photos and video; it has an expansive feature set to satisfy snapshooters and enthusiasts; it offers a lot of direct access to important settings and has a fantastic electronic viewfinder.
Its maximum f/2.8 aperture is only available at its widest focal length. The plastic body and large lens makes it feel a bit off-balance. Controls and shooting options might be intimidating for some.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a very impressive superzoom camera with an F2.8-4, 25-400mm lens and a one-inch sensor. Both photo and video quality are impressive, and support for 4K videos make the camera futureproof. The FZ1000 has a beautiful XGA EVF and a fully articulating LCD.
1"-type sensor produces excellent image quality, Bright F2.8-4 lens covers 25-400mm equiv. range, Best-in-class autofocus performance, Zoom/focus ring around lens, Future-proof 4K video recording with 100Mbps bit rate, High quality 8MP stills can be extracted from 4K video, Large grip makes camera...
Bulky, Easy to accidentally rotate focus/zoom ring, Single dial operation adds extra step when adjusting exposure, Use of rear dial during video recording can be picked up by microphone, No Auto ISO in movie mode, Lacks built-in ND filter, 1080/24p only available using AVCHD codec at 24Mbps bit rate
The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 is a versatile and more than capable alternative to a dSLR or ILC. Fantastic image quality and performance will draw you in, while a great set of features and creative shooting modes will keep you trying new things.
iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations allowing anyone to use the camera, Image quality is excellent in all shooting modes, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, 12x optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent of 25-400mm) is very versatile, 5-axis image stabilization...
The body could use a second control dial for adjusting shooting settings, Battery life is very short when using the convenience features on the camera like WiFi., On the more expensive end for a point-n-shoot camera, Larger than most ILCs (some may like this)
This lens is coupled with a state-of-the-art 16 MP CMOS sensor with fast 9 FPS drive and full 1080p HD video capability with stereo sound. Manual-controls, including manual-focus and custom white-balance are also provided in a body with plenty of external controls.
Extreme wide-angle, 20mm-equivalent, Good lens sharpness, Low optical distortion, Quick autofocus in good light, Fast shutter-lag, Quick and responsive, Awesome LCD visibility, Usable video framing overlay mask, Plenty of controls, Good ergonomics, Respectable battery-life

In 2013, the Sony RX10 set a very high benchmark for just what a long-zoom camera could be, with a large 1"-type image sensor and generous 8.3x zoom lens. Now, Panasonic puts forth a spectacularly-capable challenger in the 16x zoom Panasonic FZ1000, and despite the same sensor size and an even more...

by Michael ReichmannA Bridge to Somewhere...Oh yes, and this time with a number of very meaningful differences. So-called Bridge cameras are one of the categories of cameras that are doing well.
Panasonic takes on the RX10 with the FZ1000...and wins
A stunning all-rounder that'll appeal to both enthusiasts and newbies
Superb image and video quality, Huge zoom range adds to versatility, Large, crisp viewfinder
Somewhat bulky for a bridge camera
A good sensor, reliable autofocus and 4K video shooting make this one of the most capable bridge cameras to date, if you can handle its large body.
Relatively large sensor, Good image quality, Decent handling
Quite large, Limited zoom ring
Bigger isn't always better, but if you want a premium superzoom camera then physical size is an inevitable part of the package. In the case of the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 it also means a jumbo feature set, including a 25-400mm f/2.8-4.0 equivalent zoom lens paired with large 1-inch sensor.
Great image quality, stacks of physical controls, ample zoom and fast aperture, 4K video capture on board, 12fps burst mode, silent electronic shutter options up to 1/16,000th sec
It’s big, expensive, pinpoint autofocus accuracy seems to lack, no physical aperture ring, f/4.0 maximum begins at 175mm, no built-in ND filter, less premium than Sony RX10
I'm new to the DSLR world having come from film. I was going on vacation and tried to find film and couldn't find any, so I decided to buy a digital one. First stop I found a camera shop (I know, right??) and the guy sold me on a PMC-FZ200 (this one's predecessor).
photo quality, zoom, macro, display
trying to figure out controls on the fly - not intuitive, no printed manual
Bought this camera 4 months before a trip to Iceland. Took the time to learn many of the features and to get comfortable with the capabilities of the camera. Good thing I did, because the camera has so many settings, it takes a while to learn where to change the settings.
Fantastic camera. The 1" sensor makes a big difference in the quality of the pictures and prints. Excellent lens with a good zoom range. The faster lens is also a plus (f2.8 - 4). Lots and lots of features to play with and I haven't explored all of them yet.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this camera! I was considering this camera and the fz72 with the 60x zoom. I decided on this camera for the blurred background effect. After taking this on vacation to Ft Myers Beach, I have no doubts I made the right decision. It's super simple to use.
Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Large, Short Battery Life
I got this as a temporary, compromise replacement for a Sony a77 Mk II that started losing images. So I went from a $1,700 camera (with zoom lens) to this $700 camera -- and WAS I IMPRESSED.
1. Good zoom. 2. Great Electronic Viewfinder. 3. Very good JPEG images without any need for post-processing 4. Easy to customize 5. Lots of high-end features like peaking, HDR, zebra.
1. 1" sensor. 2. Focus motor is noisy and is on a lot. 3. Getting it setup to do what you would like can be difficult and frustrating. 4. Flash isn't great. 5. Tends to get 'grainy' (i.e., noisy) at high zoom.
This is a great camera. Outstanding lens, great zooming ability, beautiful 4k video (which is why I bought it) and you can either set it on fully automatic (and it does a great job) or make it as customizable as you desire.
UNBOXING Videos are DUMB!!! Here is MY unboxing video of the Brand new $899 Panasonic low end version of the GH4 came out. CRITICAL UPDATE: Problem with recording in 4K continued with UHS-3 card. SOLUTION: The 4K option ONLY appears when you have MODE DIAL in MOVIE mode.
- at $899 it is HALF the price of the $1999 Sony AX-100 - EXCELLENT still camera
- 30 Minute recording limit in ALL video modes. So [when i record 2.5 hour poetry slams] i will have to constantly monitor and start and stop camera. This makes it unusable for primary sound camera in multi-cam shoots.
I'll keep this simple. This camera is amazing. I've owned several long zoom enthusiast cameras, but all had a 2/3 sensor. The 1" sensor plus an excellent quality zoom lens and superior auto focus make this camera a real winner.
My purchase went great. i am a happy customer
Convenient, great leica designed lens
Difficult to use
