  • "I like how the APS-C gives me a greater "reach" with the 7-200."

    Yeah, I had always wanted one of those neat 7-200mm, 28.5x zoom range zoom lenses, it's just that they are so rare and thus so...

  • Noisy-cam, it would appear. Too bad, really.

  • "....this is a non-issue and in any event most modern TVs display either standard."

    Not so. TV sets hre in Europe do NOT play back 60p, they max out at 50 Hertz, unless you have the 100 Hertz or...

  • Yeah, I agree. If it were at least 5.5 grams lighter and 0.8mm smaller, I would buy it in a jiffy!

  • One has a sensor about 400% larger and a lens with a 200% longer throw than the other one has.

  • Do you replace the card from the bottom or from the side? Seems like the cheap P&S-cams replace cards from the bottom, whilst all the better cameras have card slots mounted on the side or in the...

  • Sounds disappointing, for a $900 device we would like to have some semi-pro "prosumer" types of manual controls of these things (zoom, focus, iirs). Lack of built-in ND filters is a big let-down...

  • "I have a mac and am surprised how well quicktime handles the 4k files."

    Good for you, however OP's comment would seem to indicate that the 100 Mbit per second bitrate for 4K video in MPEG 4 is a...

  • A brand new camera that still uses that old derided AVCHD as a video codec in the Summer of 2014? And where are the intricate details about Panasonic's 100 Mbit 4K odec? We know everything about...

  • So, it would seem that like 80 percent of the FZ1000 copies have this high sound pressure level noise, the rest have the normal OIS related noise. Still, not too good.

    Now, for taking STILL PIX,...

  • How does the wireless remote work in video recording mode, I wonder, and how does the FZ1000's wireless video remote viewing and control work with appliances other than super-overpriced Apple...

  • 4K has been out for about 8 years now. Re. the video samples posted here at the end of the review, the first one by DPR is basically a still shot of two cruise ships moored in the harbor. How this...

  • I was hoping that you lose the 25mm and start WA at maybe 31-32mm, but 37mm? That makes this Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 fixed lens camera a totally non-usable device for recording 4K resolution...

  • 3 strikes against it, though:

    1. There is no headphone jack for monitoring the audio being recorded onto the SD card. Why the heck not?

    2. There is no way to turn the aperture ring smoothly, like...

  • Plenty of Lumix FZ1000 clips as of today (31 July 2014) on YT.

    The motocross clip was superbly edited and the sound mix w. the music and FX track was well done. Too bad that the whole clip was...

  • "Stating F2.8-4.0 25-400mm LEICA DC Lens nicely hides the performance in between!"

    It is a total racket on the part of Panasonic and Leica, I agree. For this reason alone, I would stay the heck...

  • "given the difference one stop slower aperture at 200mm on this camera compared to the Canon."

    Sort of hard to make a valid comparison between a 2.8x zoom range still photography camera, on the...

  • Why would you even WANT this FZ1000 camera, when you are already using a Canon and another Panasonic model?

  • My very first impression on CANON G1XII: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

  • Wow, whoever too this "video" -- if they had waited a bit until it got daylight, they could have captured the same exact footage at ISO 400. All they would have had to do was to poke the fire for a...
