  • Excerpt: I mainly use this machine for concert and video clip video shooting. I still use my old hacked GH2s with some very nice lens, as well as 5 and 6Ds. The thing is, all I use now is the FZ1000. Not that it is better then any of the others, but it is all I need in a single very comfortable body.The image is fantastic, slow motion is fantastic, image stabilization is fantastic, lens range and quality is faaaaaantastic.If you are used to pro Lumix controls, you will have no...
  • Pros: 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

Fast and sharp and clear!

  • Excerpt: My review is based on prior ownership of a Lumix DMC FZ150. EVF is superb, like having a DSLR. Manual focus is superior to the old way. Autofocus is quick and spot-on. ISO is great, noise is low. Color is accurate and need for exposure compensation is minimal. Worried a bit about macro depth of field, but not enough experience yet.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Short Lag Time

Small sensor? Have no fear...

  • Excerpt: I really hesitated with this purchase due to sensor size, and way too much reading opinions online. I have a D7100 which takes incredibly detailed pictures and thought I couldn't live with less.Like many things in life, you are the best judge of what is good for you...in the end, it was just what I was looking for;flexible, zoom range, great image quality, excellent video, fast performance and focus.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

  • Summary: This Panasonic Lumix is a formidable for taking pictures and video thanks to a big 1-inch sensor and 4K recording capability. Pro's are: - Very fast autofocus. - 11.8fps burst shooting. - 1-inch image sensor. - Sharp EVF. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC Con's are: - A tad Bulky - Lacks built-in ND filter - Not weather sealed. - 4K video is cropped and requires manual exposure control.

Disappointed with performance

  • Summary: Disappointed with performance. The reviews were much better than my experience. The Sony RX10 is much more user friendly with excellent pictures. I am still getting used to the FZ1000.

User Review

cgarrard, DP Review

  • Excerpt: I dare anyone to name a fixed lens camera more versatile than the FZ1000. Not only does it have just about everything in one package, but its well organized and easy to shoot with. It does not get in your way. It's fast, responsive, it's got an excellent lens, excellent sensor, and lots of video and time lapse features. If you need the FZ1000 to do a task, it can do just about anything and most importantly do it very well.

9 or other aspects and now including them into the HD or UHD video I shot on the camera is a great advantage.

Roger S., Amazon

  • Summary: This is an outstanding camera, and I was shooting a Canon 7D. One of the unsung specialities is to allow you to shoot/save your jpegs as 16:9 or other aspects and now including them into the HD or UHD video I shot on the camera is a great advantage.. despite its size it is light and easy to use and I have found the buttons easy to reach and adjust.. The slow mo is smooth the UHD is sharp and works well with my editor..

  • Summary: If u plan on getting for the 4k video to then convert it to 1080p I say go for it. Had it for about a month takes nice pics and the video is awesome. If ur a professional you wouldn't be considering it. But as an ametour, five stars. Ps. Focus is really nice as well.
