Panasonic has today announced their latest premium superzoom camera, the Lumix FZ1000, which features some of the best specs in the Lumix range, including a 1-inch 20.1 megapixel sensor, and a 24-400mm f/2.8-4.0 equivalent lens, which allows the camera to zoom at with both a wide-angle offering and a medium-zoom range.
Inside there’s also a 49-area autofocus system, which allows for a pinpoint focus across the entire screen of the camera, allowing for maximum accuracy.
The camera also has a built-in 2,395k-dot OLED viewfinder, with a 3-inch 921k dot tilt-angle screen, that allows users to view their shoots from almost any angle. On the top you will also find a range of function buttons, alongside mode dials which allow for quick switching between the cameras included modes.
On the lens itself there’s also a ring that can be used to control the zoom of the camera, as well as the manual focus if the user so wishes.
In terms of video capture, the FZ1000 offers up 4K video capture at 30fps, with the ability to extract 8MP stills from captured footage. If the user prefers they can also select a 1080p shooting mode which shoots at 100fps.
And to finish the spec list off, the FZ1000 will also feature both Wi-Fi and GPS technology in-built, with 12fps burst shooting at full resolution, 1/4000th sec mechanical shutter, or a 1/16,000 sec electronic shutter time.
The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 will be available from mid-July for £750, those who pre-order will also receive a free additional battery and a carrying case.
