Pro Video Quality

With the LUMIX FZ2500 4K evolves with the variety of practical functions video enthusiasts and professionals want:

  • Cinema 4K: 4096 x 2160 / 24 fps
  • QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / up to 30 fps) video recording in MOV / MP4
  • Ultra-high bitrate Full HD video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) / 100 Mbps (IPB) without a recording duration limit


Everything in the Right Place

A quick-stability grip minimises hand fatigue while well-placed front/rear dual dials enable quick control over shutter speed and aperture. Plus, a supporting button, lever and switch layout provide intuitive, comfortable control for both photo and video shooting.


0.74x Large OLED Live View Finder

The OLED Live View Finder (2,360k-dot) provides exceptional visibility (10,000:1 contrast) for perfect framing in direct sunlight conditions. High 0.74X magnification (35mm camera equivalent) and a wide-viewing angle improve overall visibility. 

A tilt/swivel rear touch feature-enabled monitor adds the freedom to capture unusual perspectives. Just touch to immediately set focus or release the shutter.


Large 1-inch 20.1 MP Sensor

The large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel 4K High Sensitivity MOS Sensor provides impressive details even at high ISOs (ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600), which enables impressive defocus with a shallow depth of field.


The Venus Engine

The LUMIX FZ2500 Venus Engine enables the high-quality image captures and high-speed signal processing required for 4K video recording, while sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction are dramatically improved.


20x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens

A bright LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens (F/2.8-4.5) resists blurring, while its angle of view extends from 24mm wide-angle to 20X optical zoom. This lens meets Leica's stringent standards in the MTF value and in the suppression of ghosts and flaring.


Hybrid Photo / Video Lens

An internal guide-pole mechanism provides smooth, stable zooming, and dramatically suppresses image shift. A galvanometer-drive iris — used in professional video cameras— smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness to assure smooth, seamless iris control, even when zooming.


Ultra High-Speed DFD Focusing

DFD (Depth From Defocus) instantly calculates the distance to the subject to achieve ultra-fast focus lock even at 7 fps burst shooting with AFC or 12 fps burst shooting with AFS.


Macro Photography to 3cm

Stunning macro photos can be shot with a minimum focusing distance of 3cm for flowers, insects and more.


Convenient Lens Barrel Controls

A dual-ring control system enables focusing and zooming. ND filter and three Fn lens barrel buttons offer smooth, convenient video operation. WB colour temperature settings and slow and quick zoom settings can be assigned to the Fn buttons.


Built-in ND Filter

The lens barrel's quick access to ND filters which are essential for creative video shooting to maintain exposure levels with fixed shutter speed or an open aperture in high brightness.


Unmissable Moments With 4K Photo

Panasonic 4K technology lets you turn video into photography with 4K PHOTO. Simply play back a 4K video sequence recorded at the blistering speed of 30fps to select your single best image for truly unmissable moments.


Adjust Focus After Shooting

The unique Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus after shooting by layering and combining multiple images in-camera. Great for macro shots.


Live Output via HDMI

Real-time HDMI output (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit) to an external monitor is possible via an optional micro HDMI cable. A feature highly prized by professional video producers.

  • CINELIKE D and V Gamma: “CINELIKE D” and “CINELIKE V” video for rich, cinema-like gradation.
  • Optional V-Log L Upgrading: An optional Upgrade Software Key (sold separately) enables log video recording (V-Log L) with exceptional flexibility, as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in the post-production process. It boasts a log characteristic with 12 stops, and the same characteristic curve and LUT (Look Up Table) can be used in common.
  • Video-based GUI: Set the GUI to reflect the technical language of video for Shutter Duration/ISO, Angle/ISO, or Shutter Duration/dB.
  • Time Code: An SMPTE-compliant Time Code in either Rec Run or Free Run count-up method makes it easy to synchronise multiple video footage or sound sources in the post-production workflow. Drop Frame or Non-Drop Frame is also selectable in the 59.94Hz or 23.98Hz setting.


Global Video Formats

Built-in global video formats and bit rates are provided in four recording formats: AVCHD and MP4, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for editing ease. Bit rates up to 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB), with no recording duration limit. 

System frequencies: 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA)


Microphone And Headphone Terminals

A variety of connection terminals are available: 3.5mm microphone jack, 3.5mm headphone jacks, and 2.5mm jack for remote control. And with the DMW-MS2 Stereo Shotgun Microphone (sold separately), you can switch these settings on the camera menu: Stereo, Lens Auto, Shotgun, Super Shotgun and Manual.


Slow / Quick Motion

The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record videos with slow or quick motion, such as 120 fps / 5X in 24p playback, all in Full HD. The slow/quick motion function also lets you switch between 1/2X slow and 2X quick motion in a single video while recording.


Dolly Zoom

This technique zooms only the background, without changing the subject's size. A technique often used to express feelings, such as confusion, distress or surprise.
