The DMC-FZ1000 offers a true Hybrid Photography experience for everyone. It combines 4K video recording capability (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160, 30 fps in MP4)* with the ability to switch easily between video and still capture for the ultimate in image creativity. The FZ1000 also enables in-camera playback screen grabs of (3840 x 2160) 8-megapixel equivalent hybrid photography photos from 4K video footage to capture the spur-of-the-moment shots often missed with ordinary still photos.
Express Yourself – Anywhere You Go
The FZ1000 is the Panasonic LUMIX flagship bridge camera with ultimate image quality. The superb images produced with a large 1-inch sensor and all-new lens fully express the limitless depth and sunlit warmth of nature. Its 16x optical zoom brings everything up close, from tiny birds on tree branches to animals crossing the distant horizon. Choose photos or videos in crisp 4K resolution. The DMC-FZ1000 is all you need to capture the world around you, in all its natural beauty.
Large 1-inch 10.1-megapixel MOS Sensor
The newly incorporated 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600. Rich amounts of light help produce impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. The result is truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting conditions.
Bright LEICA DC Lens – F2.8-4.0 25-400mm
The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens is created especially for the DMC-FZ1000. It has an F2.8-4.0 brightness that resists blurring even with telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 25mm wide-angle to 16x optical zoom*. Comprising 15 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses and 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit achieves high MTF value. Adoption of 5 aspherical glass lenses achieves beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with invisible edge line, which is made possible by Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology.
* 35mm camera equivalent: 25-400mm.
Light Speed AF with LUMIX DFD Focus Technology
A new linear motor integrated into the focus system achieves approx. 275% faster1 focusing, compared to the conventional DMC-FZ200. In addition new DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology2 shortens the time to set the focus. It instantaneously calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating 2 images with different sharpness levels. As a result, ultra high-speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec3 (wide-end) / approx. 0.171,4 sec (tele-end) is achieved.
5-AXIS Correction / Tilt Correction
The HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) + with 5-axis correction* gives you blur-less, one-handed video shooting ability. It detects and compensates for the camera's 5 types of movement – horizontal, vertical, axis of rotation, vertical rotation and horizontal rotation. The Level Shot Function* detects the image's horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted. It takes stable video even in high-angle, blind recording.
*HYBRID O.I.S.+ and Level Shot Function do not work in 4K video recording.

I think the only thing I would want the FZ1000 to have is a touch more reach, for wildlife and moon shots. If they could extend it to 600 or 700mm, it'd be perfect for me. But I'm giving it five stars anyway because it's an awesome camera for the money, and an awesome camera in general.
Update, 5/16/2016: I mentioned in my original review that if the FZ1000 had a bit more reach, it'd be perfect for me. Enter the Sony RX10 Mark III, which has a 24-600mm equivalent range lens. I bought it on upon its release and I took it to the Jacksonville Zoo to try it out, taking more than 500 pictures. At the end, I concluded that while it has fantastic range, the FZ1000 is superior to it in some ways. I think the autofocus of the Panasonic is faster, and I think its low light performance is superior; I had some issues in the darker reptile house, something which never was an issue with the FZ1000. I also prefer the fully articulating screen of the Panasonic, and of course it's less than half the price. The range is great, but if it's not absolutely critical, I still strongly recommend the FZ1000. It's a heck of a deal and I have no problems retaining the five-star rating I gave it originally.
I thought I would love the constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the entire focal range (25-600mm) of the 300, assuming it would render nicer bokeh and would be better in low lighting. Turns out the bokeh rendered by the 1000 at f/4 was as nice…in some instances NICER, than what the 300’s f/2.8 rendered. Even in instances where bokeh was similar, shading in the blurred areas was blown out on the 300’s shots, but not the 1000’s.
And that constant f/2.8 low light advantage? No. Not compared to the much more light sensitive sensor of the 1000. Even with the larger constant aperture, the 300 struggled in low light, forcing a much higher ISO, and the noise that accompanied these ISO speeds was horrendous. The 1000 handled the same lighting conditions with much lower ISOs and NO noise!
I thought I’d prefer the 300’s 25-600mm focal length over the 1000’s 25-400. In comparison shots, turns out the difference between 400mm and 600mm is not really all that much. BUT, the 1000 has an extra setting (iZoom) that can be used when shooting in jpg format that extends the 400mm zoom to an 800mm, and the 800mm rendering is virtually equal in quality to the 300’s 600mm rendering. I did not experiment with the 'digital zooms on either camera…I have a dreadful aversion to digital zooms…they are normally quite hideous.
How much difference does the much larger sensor on the 1000 really make with regard to overall image quality and detail? HUGE. MUCH greater than I actually expected. Hands down NO COMPARISON straight out of camera. When shooting RAW, it was possible to pull out similar details in the 300’s files by adjusting exposure, white balance and highlights (details that seemed to be altogether missing when viewed straight out of camera) during processing, but who really needs more steps from downloading shots to final product?
If you’re in the market for a bridge camera that can offer the convenience of a huge focal length without the cumbersome inconvenience of multiple bodies and heavy lenses, plus image quality comparable to many DSLRs, this FZ1000 LUMIX has no competitors in this price range. Both the 300 and the 1000 are HIGHLY customizable. I set both up to many of the same custom settings as my full frame DSLR systems. If you’ve read this far through this review, you’re no doubt serious...just go ahead and buy this thing…you won’t be sorry!
