Could the new Panasonic FZ-1000 be all the camera you need?

Share

As a system camera user it’s hard to get excited about fixed lens compact cameras. But the Panasonic FZ-1000 announced today really shake up the premium compact and fixed lens market. First of all it’s priced much lower ($400 less!) than the only competitor to date: The Sony RX10. You can check the price and preorder the Panasonic FZ-1000 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here). Here are a list of reasons why that camera is very intriguing:

1) 25-400mm f/2.8-4.0 lens. It has a damn useful zoom (and aperture) range that covers almost all the possible needs you could have when travelling.
2) The lens has no orion-ring effect on the bokeh just like the $1499 Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 lens! (Source: DC.watch).
3) It uses the same Sony 20.1 MP 1 inch large sensor of the new RX100M3. But the FZ-1000 seems to have a better performance at 1600 ISO (see Studio Scene comparison at Dpreview).
4) Has an optical 5 axis stabilization.
5) Unlike Sony’s RX10/Rx100M3 Panasonic fully unlocked the sensors 4K recording potential. Now we have 4K at 30fps and 100mbit/s!
6) It has the same Panasonic GH4 processor engine.
7) The EVF doesn’t appear to be a field-sequential panel, meaning it’s free from the RGB ‘tearing’ that undermined that model’s shooting experience (for some people).

This is really a great camera! So here is the short question:

Are you considering to buy the FZ-1000?

The FZ1000 has been announced and you can already preorder it at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). While this is not a MTF camera it’s going to be a very popular camera for travellers. It has a super useful 25-400mm F/2.8-4.0 lens with a large 1 inch sensor and 4K video recording. And it costs $400 less than the Sony RX10!
