Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 4K Point and Shoot Camera

CNET review:

“With excellent photo and video quality and a deep feature set, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is the perfect mix if you want dSLR-like controls and better than point-and-shoot performance with the convenience of a single fixed lens.”

Featured in CNET’s Best Digital Cameras.

Digital Photography review:

“It’s been eight years since the FZ50 was introduced, so we can’t imagine too many people are still waiting, but in some respects it appears Panasonic has finally created a replacement for that much-missed model. Taken as a whole, the FZ1000 can almost be seen as a synthesis between the two cameras.”

TechRadar review:

“Although it’s large for a bridge camera the FZ1000 has lots going for it including a versatile focal length range, a 1-inch sensor, raw and JPEG image recording and the ability to produce high-quality images in many situations.”
