Key Features: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 Digital Camera
New LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT Photo/Video Hybrid Lens
The LUMIX FZ2000 features the newly-developed LEICA DC VARIO-ELMART lens
system which has a 20x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-480mm)
and F2.8-4.5. Comprising of 16 lenses in 11 groups, the lens system
boasts high optical performance with minimum ghost and flaring and a
guide-pole mechanism commonly used in professional video cameras.
Together with the inner zoom structure, the guide-pole realises
exceptional barycentric stability for smooth, stable zooming. The lens
also incorporates a nine aperture diaphragm to realise soft, rounded
defocus, which effortlessly matches sudden changes of brightness thanks
to the adoption of a galvanometer also used in professional video
High-Quality Video Capability
The LUMIX FZ2000 boasts exceptional video recording performance which
has never been seen in a bridge camera. It is capable of unlimited 4K
video recording (Cinema 4K: 4096x2160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 3840x2160 /
up to 30 fps) in MOV/MP4 and Full HD video at an ultra-high bitrate of
200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB).
Users can freely choose from MOV, MP4, AVCHD Progressive and AVCHD at a
variety of frame rates according to the usage. For professional users,
the system frequency can be flexibly selected between 59.94Hz (23.98Hz)
/ 50.00Hz / 24.00Hz. The LUMIX FZ2000 is also capable of real-time image
output to an external monitor via an optional micro HDMI cable
simultaneously while recording video. In addition, for more unique video
expression, the LUMIX FZ2000 comes with further professional features
such as Dolly Zoom, VFR (Variable Frame Rate), Time Lapse and Stop
In further response to film production market demands, Panasonic offers
an optional paid software upgrade for the LUMIX FZ2000 to comply with
V-Log L video recording.
High Picture Quality
The LUMIX FZ2000 incorporates a 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor with
20.1-megapixel high resolution. This large MOS Sensor improves S/N
ratio, resulting in dramatic reduction of noise – even when shooting at
ISO 12800. The LUMIX FZ2000 also achieves ultra-high speed AF of approx.
0.09 sec and high-speed burst shooting at 12 fps (AFS) / 7 fps (AFC) to
capture fast-moving subjects in-focus up to 100 (JPEG) / 30 (RAW) images.
4K Photo Feature
An additional 4K PHOTO feature captures unmissable photo opportunities
at 30 fps by extracting the most photogenic frame from the 4K burst file
to save as a photo. Users can save pictures in 8-megapixel equivalent
high resolution, which is suitable for printing up to A3 size.
Post Focus Function
The integrated Post Focus function enables the selection of the in-focus
area of a single frame even after shooting, whilst Panasonic’s new Focus
Stacking function enables users to take multiple images of the same
frame with different areas in focus, then combine all or selected focus
areas into one image. Focus Stacking is particularly beneficial for
shooting macro images.
Sleek Design and Intuitive Control
The LUMIX FZ2000 integrates an OLED Live View Finder (LVF) with a
2360K-dot equivalent high resolution in approx. 2.18x / 0.74x (35mm
camera equivalent in 4:3) magnification capability. Adoption of OLED for
the LVF achieves a high-speed response with minimum time lag of less
than 0.01 sec as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for exceptional
visibility. With an eye-point of approximately 20 mm, it also offers
high visibility with comfort for users wearing glasses.
The LUMIX FZ2000 also features a well-defined grip for a stable hold and
minimum fatigue when consistently using the camera over a longer period
of time. The front/rear dual dial system enables direct setting over
shutter speed and aperture, and an optimum layout of dials, buttons,
lever and switch offers intuitive control with comfort for both photo
and video shooting.
For further intuitive control, the 3.0-inch large, approx.1040K-dot rear
vary-angle touchscreen with approximately 100% of field of view enables
shooting in either high or low angle easier.
