(FT5) Confirmed: Panasonic FZ1000 1 inch sensor is from Sony.
The 1 inch sensor of the FZ1000.
One of my very best sources (Thanks You!) confirmed the 1 inch sensor used by the new Panasonic FZ1000 is from Sony. It’s actually the same RX100M3 sensor but unlike Sony Panasonic managed to solve the heating issue to make it record 4K.
The source told me people shouldn’t get confused because Panasonic calls it “MOS”. It’s just a marketing thing. It is the Sony BSI CMOS sensor :)
P.S.: Panasonic FZ-1000 preorders at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here).
