Rich amounts of light help produce impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. The result is truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting conditions.
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.
Light Speed AF with LUMIX DFD Focus Technology
A new linear motor integrated into the focus system achieves approx. 275% faster focusing, compared to the conventional DMC-FZ200. In addition new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology shortens the time to set the focus. It instantaneously calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating 2 images with different sharp ness levels. As a result, ultra high-speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec (wide-end) / approx. 0.17 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.
