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.

Panasonic Announces Availability and Price of Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH

Wed March 26, 2014

Panasonic announced that the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm/F1.7 ASPH. will be available in the U.S. in May with an MSRP of US $599.99.

PRESS RELEASE

LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH.

High Speed Prime Wide-Angle Lens

NEWARK, NJ (March 26, 2014) – Panasonic is proud to announce the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH interchangeable lens for the Micro Four Thirds format.  (35 mm camera equivalent: 30 mm). The new LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH. allows photographers to capture images with beautiful defocus features produced by F1.7 lens. The SUMMILUX 15mm lens is very compact and lightweight.  The lens will be available in the U.S. at www.shop.panasonic.com and photo specialty retailers.

The new lens system is comprised of nine elements in seven groups and uses three aspherical lenses. The aspherical lenses suppress spherical aberration and distortion effectively while realizing downsizing of the lens unit. Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimize the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in a super clear picture with a dramatic reduction of ghost and flare. The lens incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from close-up to infinity. The inclusion of a newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. Notably the performance of Auto Focus (AF) is by far superior to the phase-difference AF when a fast lens with smaller aperture value is used. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max.240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF when mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G system.
