F2.8-4.5 24-480mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens and 20.1MP 1-inch sensor boast high performance for both photos and videos. The lens system features an inner zoom structure with guide-pole mechanism for stable zooming, and suppresses image shift. A coreless DC motor also enables slow constantly zooming from wide to 20x. New actuator for iris control, which is used in professional camcorders, smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness. This assures smooth, seamless iris control even when zooming.
Video creation to meet pro quality
LUMIX FZ2000 further evolves to meet professional quality and standard with the capability of 4K (Cinema 4K: 4096 x 2160 / 24-fps and QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / up to 30-fps) video recording in MOV / MP4 (LPCM / AAC) and ultra high bitrate Full HD video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) / 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording duration limit. Versatile video formats and bit rates prepare the LUMIX FZ2000 for use in a wide range of applications. The system frequency can be selected from 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA).
A variety of practical functions required for professional video recording
Live image output (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit) to the external monitor via an optional micro HDMI cable is suitable for the professional video making that requires serious monitoring of the imageries. SMPTE-compliant Time Code makes it easy to synchronize the multiple video footage or sound source in the post production workflow. LUMIX FZ2000 also complies with V-Log L recording with a purchase of Upgrade Software Key DMW-SFU1. Slow & quick video, variable frame rate video and dolly zoom function are available for cinema-like visual effects.
Freeze moments with 4K PHOTO and ultra-fast AF
You can capture unmissable moments with 4K PHOTO at 30-fps. The DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultrahigh-speed AF and 7-fps burst shooting with AFC (* 12-fps with AFS).
Thanks to the 4K technology, Post Focus and Focus Stacking are equipped with FZ2000. You can get an image with exactly the kind of defocus you want or pan-focus the image by simply selecting the focus area after shooting.
Intuitive control for both photo and video shooting
A 2,360k-dot high-resolution OLED Live View Finder boasts high 0.74x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) and an eyepoint of approx. 20mm. A dual ring control system enables focusing and zooming, just like LUMIX G zoom lenses. Built-in ND filter and three Fn buttons on the lens barrel offer smooth video operation just like professional video cameras. The well-defined grip provides a stable hold with minimum fatigue despite its substantial weight. The front/rear dual dial system enables direct setting of shutter speed and aperture.
