MISSISSAUGA, ON (June 12, 2014) – Panasonic Canada Inc. is proud to introduce the new DMC-FZ1000 – with a one-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and 4K video recording capability – as the latest member of the popular LUMIX FZ series. In addition, this camera features a newly developed 16x optical zoom LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens, which produces stunning detail and edge-to-edge resolution, while also delivering beautiful quality defocus together with the large-sized MOS Sensor.
The one-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor dramatically improves S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at high ISO. The newly developed Venus Engine features multiple noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter, to achieve high colour reproduction and superb image quality.
The DMC-FZ1000 incorporates 4K (3840×2160, at 30 fps in MP4) video recording capability for the first time in a digital compact camera*1. Panasonic is also promoting a new method of photo creation by cutting out a 3840×2160 8-megapixel equivalent image from the 4K video footage, for capturing spur-of-the-moment shots often missed in still image photography. Videos can be recorded in Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format or MP4 at 60p*2. The powerful 16x optical zoom with 5-step speed enables smooth zoom control even when recording video, while the 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)+ with Active Mode effectively compensates for any handshake motion*3. Additional video features include Creative Video mode, High Speed video in Full-HD at 120fps, Time Lapse Shot、and Stop Motion Animation.
