The Lumix FZ1000 II is a hybrid camera that boasts a large 1-inch sensor and 4K PHOTO and 4K video recording capability as the latest member of popular high-zoom FZ series. The 16x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm) is integrated that achieves high descriptiveness in detail and resolution to corners. It also produces stunningly beautiful defocus together with the large-sized MOS Sensor. The minimum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. is extended to f/11. The Lumix FZ1000 II provides the Zoom Compose Assist function which helps to regain the subject quickly when the loose sight of it in telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. shooting. Its large 1-inch 20.1-megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. High Sensitivity MOS Sensor boasts a high S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear image with minimum noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. even when shot at high ISO. L.Monochrome and L.Monochrome D modes are newly added to Photo Style, making it possible to shoot dynamic monochrome photos with emphasized highlights and shadows while preserving the details. The Lumix FZ1000 II records stunningly smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO to capture those unmissable moments at 30 fps and save in 8-megapixel high-resolution photos. 

*The Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lenses are manufactured using measurement instruments and quality assurance systems that have been certified by Leica Camera AG based on the company's quality standards.


16X LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT LENS

The LUMIX FZ1000 II features the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens (f/2.8-f/4) with 16x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm) and achieves beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with invisible edge line. Its minimum aperture is extended from f/8 (FZ1000 prior model) to f/11, achieving f/2.8-f/11 at the wide end and f/4-f/11 at tele end.


1-INCH 20.1MP MOS SENSOR

The Lumix FZ1000 II incorporates 1-inch large High Sensitivity MOS Sensor with 20.1-megapixel high resolution. This large MOS Sensor improves S/N ratio, resulting in a dramatic reduction of noise even in shooting at ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)12800*. The rich amount of light help produces impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. 

*The max. ISO 25600 (Extended).


NEW MONOCHROME MODES

For more creative expression, L.Monochrome and L.Monocheome D modes are newly added to Photo Style, making it possible to shoot dynamic monochrome photos with emphasized highlights and shadows while preserving the details. The user can adjust the grain effect between High/Standard/Low for more creative monochrome photo shooting.


4K VIDEO AND 4K PHOTO

The LUMIX FZ1000 II is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also high-quality videos even in 4K. It features an outstanding 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840x2160, at 30p or 24p in MP4*. With the 4K PHOTO, users can capture the fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution by extracting a frame of the most photogenic timing out of the 4K burst file to save as a photo. Three exclusive functions are integrated to make the 4K photography even easier; 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. The 4K Burst shooting allows consecutive shooting at 30 fps, which can be used just like a photo burst shooting. 

*4K video can be recorded up to 29 minutes 59second. When recording motion pictures in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3. 

*Motion image can be recorded up to 29 min 59 sec depending on the recording format and the camera’s sales area.


AUTO MARKING AND SEQUENCE COMPOSITION FUNCTIONS

Choosing the best shot out of hundreds of frames recorded with 4K PHOTO is now easier with the newly added Auto Marking function. It lets you jump to the nearest frame where the differences are obvious between consecutive frames to minimise the time it takes to choose the best shot. Sequence Composition makes it possible to make a promotion image by synthesising multiple images shot at a fixed frame with 4K PHOTO. A unique image reflecting the subject’s motion can be produced easily in the camera without needing a special retouching process.


POST FOCUS MODE

The Lumix FZ1000 II comes with the Post Focus function that enables users to select the in-focus area even after shooting. It is helpful in situations like macroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. shooting where severe focusing is required or for changing expressions by changing the focused subject. This function has been developed by combining the high-speed, high-precision DFD (Depth From Defocus) autofocus technology and the 4K technology.


FOCUS STACKING MODE

Newly integrated Focus Stacking function enables users to adjust the focus area after shooting by combining multiple images shot with Post Focus function in the camera. Users do not need to establish a focus point during shooting but they can get the image with the defocus as they want or pan-focus image by selecting the focus area after shooting. This is beneficial when shooting macro shots of insects, small accessories and so on.


FOCUSING TECHNOLOGY

For even faster response and higher mobility, the Lumix FZ1000 II integrates a dedicated linear motor into the focus system. The Light Speed AF with an adoption of DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology even shortens the time to set focus. It also boasts high-speed burst shooting in RAW. The Lumix FZ1000 II  is capable of releasing the mechanical shutter at max.1/4000 sec and even at 1/16000 with the electronic shutter, which reduces washouts even under strong sunlight.


VIEWFINDER AND TOUCH DISPLAY

The FZ1000 II boasts high-precision, high-speed OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) LVF (Live View Finder). With 0.39-inch 2,360k-dot high resolution in 4:3 aspect, the new LVF boasts approx 0.74x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification and 100% field of view. With an eyepoint of approximately 20 mm, it offers high visibility with comfort for users wearing glasses. It is always sharp and clear from the centre all the way to the corners. The new 3.0-inch 1,240k-dot free-angle rear monitor adopting touch control rotates 180 degrees to the side and tilts 270 degrees up and down offers approx. 100% of field of view. Adopting a static-type touch control system, it immediately lets users set to focus on the subject simply by touching the screen and releasing the shutter. It is free and easy to enlarge the target point with fingertips to set precise focus.


FRONT AND REAR DIALS

Operability is also improved on Lumix FZ1000 II allowing intuitive control. The front/rear dual dial system enables direct setting over shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. and aperture. For quick access to the target setting menu, the user can assign the frequently-used functions to a total of 13 Fn buttons including 3 new buttons on the lens barrel and 5 on the touch control menu.


WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY

The FZ1000 II integrates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. Once the camera is connected to a smartphone or tablet installed with Panasonic's dedicated application software Panasonic Image App for iOS / Android, users can shoot, browse and share images remotely. Users can choose the picture quality of the photos to transfer using the Image App. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) enables constant connection with a smartphone/tablet with minimum power consumption. This enables the camera to activate by simply using a smartphone/tablet or to add GPS geotag on the photos automatically.

  • Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 16x Zoom LensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example.
