  • Wait they're making a FZ1000 II? After making an FZ2500 that was the successor? Isn't this like releasing a G7 II after the G85?

    Strange so strange, I guess the one good news from this is if anybody wants to buy a FS1000 mk1 on eBay then the mk2 should help hurry up the price drops on eBay if the FZ2500 hadn't already pushed it done enough for you to buy a FZ1000

  • have to eat my words....panasonic are complete dumbaxxes. Sony still rules the 1"sensor world....

  • @Vitaliy unbelievably they didn't shoot in 4k. But as far as I can tell, there's one major upgrade for video on this camera, at least according to specs at pany uk, and that is it doesn't crop in 4k, which both the mk i and the fz2500 both unfortunately do crop...to about 34mm or there abouts. And it supposedly has improved it's zooming as well. And the additions of the b&w modes might? make it a worth while improvement over the mk i.

    At the heart of the camera is a large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which boasts a high signal to noise ratio – in other words, it’s the ideal choice for capturing clear images, even in low light conditions. The 16x optical LEICA zoom lens gives you a 35mm camera equivalent of 25-400mm, making it perfect for everything from scenic photography to distant subjects.

Additional specifications include the following:

    LUMIX’s famous 4K Photo capabilities help you get the shot in difficult situations. Fleeting moments can be captured at a stunning 30 frames per second, giving you the option to choose the best frame later. A newly added Auto Marking feature helps you to find the right shot quickly and easily.

    Other exciting 4K Photo functions include Post Focus, Focus Stacking and the ability to combine multiple images for a fun “stromotion” effect.

    Video enthusiasts can record stunningly smooth, high-resolution QFHD in 3840x2160 pixel resolution at 30/25/24p.

A high-speed and high-precision 0.39-inch OLED Live View Finder has a 2,360k-dot resolution and 0.74x magnification. The eyepoint of 20mm allows for high visibility – even for photographers wearing glasses.

    Info is 100% reliable, both from Nokishita and from my source.

  • Wait they're making a FZ1000 II? After making an FZ2500 that was the successor? Isn't this like releasing a G7 II after the G85?

  • Features are consequences of internal reorganization where all resources and top developers are transferred into premium FF line.
