The Panasonic Lumix FZ2000 (DMC-FZ2000EB-K) is the latest in their "super" bridge camera line-up. It has an incredible mix of advanced photographic capabilities and outstanding video specification, a 20.1MP 1" MOS Sensor and a DCI 4K format video at a true 24.00 fps. The robust body houses a versatile Leica DC Vario-Elmarit f/2.8-4.5 lens with a powerful 20x optical zoom. This optic uses numerous specialised elements to guarantee outstanding, sharp images and offers an 24-480mm equivalent zoom range. Other features of the Lumix FZ2000 include a DSLR-like body design that is very ergonomic, including manual control rings, a 0.74x 2.36million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, and a 3.0" 1.04million-dot articulated touchscreen LCD. Takes Panasonic DMW-BLC12 BLC12E battery.Takes 67mm filters.
New LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT Photo/Video Hybrid Lens
The LUMIX FZ2000 features the newly-developed LEICA DC VARIO-ELMART lens system which has a 20x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm) and F2.8-4.5. Comprising of 16 lenses in 11 groups, the lens system boasts high optical performance with minimum ghost and flaring and a guide-pole mechanism commonly used in professional video cameras. Together with the inner zoom structure, the guide-pole realises exceptional barycentric stability for smooth, stable zooming. The lens also incorporates a nine aperture diaphragm to realise soft, rounded defocus, which effortlessly matches sudden changes of brightness thanks to the adoption of a galvanometer also used in professional video cameras.
High-Quality Video Capability
The LUMIX FZ2000 boasts exceptional video recording performance which has never been seen in a bridge camera. It is capable of unlimited 4K video recording (Cinema 4K: 4096x2160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 3840x2160 / up to 30 fps) in MOV/MP4 and Full HD video at an ultra-high bitrate of 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB).
Users can freely choose from MOV, MP4, AVCHD Progressive and AVCHD at a variety of frame rates according to the usage. For professional users, the system frequency can be flexibly selected between 59.94Hz (23.98Hz) / 50.00Hz / 24.00Hz. The LUMIX FZ2000 is also capable of real-time image output to an external monitor via an optional micro HDMI cable simultaneously while recording video. In addition, for more unique video expression, the LUMIX FZ2000 comes with further professional features such as Dolly Zoom, VFR (Variable Frame Rate), Time Lapse and Stop Motion Animation.
In further response to film production market demands, Panasonic offers an optional paid software upgrade for the LUMIX FZ2000 to comply with V-Log L video recording.
High Picture Quality
The LUMIX FZ2000 incorporates a 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor with 20.1-megapixel high resolution. This large MOS Sensor improves S/N ratio, resulting in dramatic reduction of noise – even when shooting at ISO 12800. The LUMIX FZ2000 also achieves ultra-high speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec and high-speed burst shooting at 12 fps (AFS) / 7 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects in-focus up to 100 (JPEG) / 30 (RAW) images.
4K Photo Feature
An additional 4K PHOTO feature captures unmissable photo opportunities at 30 fps by extracting the most photogenic frame from the 4K burst file to save as a photo. Users can save pictures in 8-megapixel equivalent high resolution, which is suitable for printing up to A3 size.
Post Focus Function
The integrated Post Focus function enables the selection of the in-focus area of a single frame even after shooting, whilst Panasonic’s new Focus Stacking function enables users to take multiple images of the same frame with different areas in focus, then combine all or selected focus areas into one image. Focus Stacking is particularly beneficial for shooting macro images.
Sleek Design and Intuitive Control
The LUMIX FZ2000 integrates an OLED Live View Finder (LVF) with a 2360K-dot equivalent high resolution in approx. 2.18x / 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent in 4:3) magnification capability. Adoption of OLED for the LVF achieves a high-speed response with minimum time lag of less than 0.01 sec as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for exceptional visibility. With an eye-point of approximately 20 mm, it also offers high visibility with comfort for users wearing glasses.
The LUMIX FZ2000 also features a well-defined grip for a stable hold and minimum fatigue when consistently using the camera over a longer period of time. The front/rear dual dial system enables direct setting over shutter speed and aperture, and an optimum layout of dials, buttons, lever and switch offers intuitive control with comfort for both photo and video shooting.
For further intuitive control, the 3.0-inch large, approx.1040K-dot rear vary-angle touchscreen with approximately 100% of field of view enables shooting in either high or low angle easier.
