When I first bought the FZ1000 back in October of 2014 I wrote a two page review on it for my students in the digital photography class I teach at Emeritus College in Santa Monica, California. I titled the review” My first 5 days with the Panasonic FZ1000”- Now that I have been using that camera for six months I am even more impressed. I noted in that original review that the FZ1000 used the same battery as the FZ200 which I had and so did about a half-dozen of my photo students. I didn’t ha...

Awesome camera and outstanding photographs

By Photoguy

I have been a Canon fan for many years so making a change to a Panasonic camera was a challenge. I read several reviews on the FZ1000 and it sounded great. My current Canon SX40HS was not doing the job right for me so I took a chance and bought the FZ1000. Very glad I made the purchase because I am very happy with it! The camera is easy to use, very intuitive, takes awesome clear photos and has more than ample zoom and wide angle for all my needs. I was drawn to the super zooms of higher magn...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera offers a true Hybrid Photography experience for everyone. It combines 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K - 3840 x 2160, 30 fps in MP4) with the ability to switch easily between video and still capture for the ultimate in image creativity. The FZ1000 also enables in-camera playback screen grabs of (3840 x 2160) 8-megapixel equivalent hybrid photography photos from 4K video footage to capture the spur-of-the-moment shots often missed with ordinary still photos.

4K QFHD Video - Vibrant, Realistic Motion
Experience the world of 4K video capture. Enjoy true-to-life, ultra high-resolution images in smooth motion. Plus, the realistic ambience of audio recording with the optional Stereo / Shotgun Microphone (DMW-MS2) with the ability to adjust sound gathering characteristics to match any shooting situation. For even greater versatility, switch to manual operation in Creative Video mode and dramatic slow motion in full-HD 120 fps video.

Express Yourself - Anywhere You Go
The FZ1000 is the Panasonic LUMIX flagship bridge camera with ultimate image quality. The superb images produced with a large 1-inch sensor and all-new lens fully express the limitless depth and sunlit warmth of nature. Its 16x optical zoom brings everything up close, from tiny birds on tree branches to animals crossing the distant horizon. Choose photos or videos in crisp 4K resolution. The DMC-FZ1000 is all you need to capture the world around you, in all its natural beauty.

Large 1-inch 20 megapixel MOS Sensor
The newly incorporated 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600. 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.

Smartphone Enabled Remote Shooting / Remote View
With the Panasonic Image App, you can utilize a smartphone or tablet as a remote controller to zoom, set the focus and shoot from a distance.

Easy Share
Instantly upload and share images on social media using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet.

Easy Connection
Simply touching an NFC-compatible smartphone / tablet to the camera, or scanning the QR code connects to Wi-Fi.

Tag location information to the image by utilizing the GPS log of a smartphone / tablet and share it to the preferred social media.

Macro Photography to 3cm
Stunning macro shots can be shot with minimum focusing distance of 3cm. You can enjoy shooting close-up shots with the DMC-FZ1000 only to express spectacular details of flowers, insects and so on.

In-camera Creative Control / Creative Panorama
In-camera Creative Control adds artistic and original expression to your photos and videos. Plus, create vertical / horizontal panoramic photos with a unique touch just by swiveling the camera.

Multiple Accessory Options to Choose From
For a more rewarding Hybrid Photography experience, add an optional External Flash (DMW-FL580L) with built-in LCD video light. The FZ1000 videos offer high-quality, highly realistic Dolby Digital stereo sound from a built-in microphone. A stereo zoom microphone features a zoom noise reduction system and a Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most of the noise from background wind. With the optional DMW-MS2 Stereo/Shotgun Microphone, you can adjust the sound gathering characteristics to match the shooting situation. The impressive flexibility of DMC-FZ1000 goes far beyond the limit of conventional bridge camera.

Looses wide angle images in 4k mode crops sides

Looses wide angle images in 4k mode crops sides off thus the beautiful wide angle image feature is lost in the 4k photo and video modes. It is present and not cropped off at the 1080 and below modes.

Really good all arounder

By Sandy

Sharp, packed with very good useful features. I am mostly still shooter but the video features are more than adequate for my infrequent use. Stills are great and shooting raw works especially well. I'm not a fan of lumix jpegs, prefer to shoot raw and convert to my liking.


Wonderful Camera Fabulous Price

By Jerry H.

This camera does everything the Adorama says ad it will ! Purchased on line and really saved . I had a few questions got real live help with little wait time...Amazing! Straight Up answers ! Purchased the camera the next morning and recommend it if you want a low cost investment with a Leica lens , Manual and Auto Settings ! P.S. Did I mention i also does 4k Video capture :)


Best all-in-one point and shoot I could find.


I'm a Canon DSLR user and my wife complained that she couldn't possibly get the photos I was getting with her point little Nikon point and shoot - so I did the research and bought this for her. Now she's out-shooting me on occasions! Fabulous camera and fabulous range.


Panasonic Lumix FZ1000

By Carolyn B.

This is the second FZ1000 I've owned and I love it. The pictures are sharp, the colors vivid. There are many options for settings. The only thing I wish is that it weighed less. It is a little heavy to carry around.



By Jesse

I realize a lot of professional guys may look down on a bridge camera... it's only because they haven't used it! I originally purchased the FZ-1000 as a "back-up" rig. It's so light and easy to use, it has quickly become the one I usually grab to use! I don't care if it's on location work, pics at a local sporting event, quick grab shots or hurry-up cheap advertising work... it's never let me down, PLUS I don't have to walk around looking like a PACK MULE carrying all my equipment! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR -- GET ONE!


Love this camera!

By Cathryn W.

Generally, when I go out, I grab my FZ1000. It takes great macro/closeups and landscapes. It's only when I have something specific in mind that I take one of my Nikon DSLR's. I highly recommend the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000, a wonderful camera!


Awesome camera

I take pictures, man!


Remarkably good


I bought the FZ1000 to use for air travel instead of my DSLR kit. It turned out to be sharper than any of my DSLR lenses, and low enough noise to be quite useful at ISO 1600 for a letter sized print. I ended up selling off the Canon 70D DSLR and using the FZ1000 for both home use and travel. One caution. The images from the FZ1000 look soft at the factory default settings. I prefer to print my travel photos straight out of the camera with as little post processing as I can. So I tweaked the internal settings for sharpening, saturation, and noise reduction, and the results are spectacular. The FZ1000 has a setting for pixel count called the EZ settings. I set the EZ10 MP setting on the C (custom setting) on the mode dial. This gives a very good quality 565 mm equivalent focal length range, and still at f/2.8-4. An excellent all round camera.


Lumix FZ 1000 camera


This is a really wonderful camera at a very affordable price. I would recommend it to almost anybody.


Recently purchased Lumix FZ1000

By Michael S.

I had an FZ200 that I loved, and mistakenly moved away from the Lumix brand to buy a Nikon P900. It was more of a lens than I needed. I went back to Lumix for an FZ1000 and am very happy. I never should have left the line.

I rented the camera to try on a trip to the desert. On the way home from returning it to the rental place, I bought one. I absolutely love it. It's easy to use, although finding some of the settings takes a little bit of searching. It's very light (a huge benefit to me). I love the wide angle - good zoom all in one. I love not having to carry extra lenses. The photos are consistant and always well exposed on all of the program modes. I also use it on manual a lot, since i shoot in some crazy bad lighting. This is the perfect camera for traveling, since it's light, compact and does a great job. Thank you for such an amazing piece of equipment. My one complaint is that it goes through batteries very quickly, even though I rarely use it for video (which it also does a great job with, BTW).


The glass is superb!

By Ex-Pro P.

I've only had the camera for about 3 weeks so still putting it through all the test I can think of. Love the options. Haven't figured them all out yet, but so far so good. I have a another brands very expensive camera that does it all, but is just to expensive to take everywhere, not to mention to heavy and needed something that would still do it, but be a little less cumbersome and little less loss should something happen. This fits the bill perfectly! I really like it. The glass is superb!

great camera

i have been using DSLRs (photo and video use) for many years but finally decided that i did not want to haul all of my lenses and cameras around with me anymore. I went in search of the perfect one stop camera to use. After much investigation i chose the fz-1000. the good is that it is light, takes great photos, offers the fastest autofocus i have ever used, offers 4k video (very nice by the way), has good sound for video, offers a 400mm zoom lens (need to be sure you have the OIS on when using), lots of built in options for shooting, the ability to zoom like a video camera and allows you to use manual mode and make the same adjustments you would in a DSLR. One big good for me is that i can adjust the picture style for video (offering a very flat look) so i can do color correction afterward. The not so good (and so far i have not seen any bad) is that the body feels a bit cheap and plastic-like, it is not weather sealed and the batteries tend to go quickly (I always have several with me). My take on this camera is that i am going to enjoy using it for years to come.

This is my 3rd Panasonic camera. Each one has gotten better. The battery last all day if you stick wit the view finder rather than the screen. The pictures are excellent and the zoom great. It sure is great to get long distance shots without carrying and constantly changing lenses. Some say the quality is not as good as other cameras. but with the eye and not a microscope you can't tell the difference. Great camera at a very reasonable cost. I hope Panasonic keeps making this version of the camera without interchangeable lenses. A Very Happy Owner
