DMC FZ2000 incorporates a 20x optical zoom lens, a 1.0 inch MOS sensor and unlimited 4K video recording in MOV/MP4.
The LUMIX FZ2000 is the perfect device for both semi-professional videographers and photography enthusiasts wishing to experience professional shooting capabilities in a compact device.
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.
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 Motion Animation.
In further response to film production market demands, Panasonic offers a paid software upgrade service for the LUMIX FZ2000 to comply with V-Log L video recording.
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 in 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) / 40 (RAW) images.
An additional 4K PHOTO feature captures fleeting 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 for printing up to A3 size. 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 aperture values, then combine them into one image and select the area to be in focus. Focus Stacking is particularly beneficial for shooting macro images.
The LUMIX FZ2000 offers sleek design and intuitive control
The LUMIX FZ2000 integrates an OLED LVF (Live View Finder) with a 2360K-dot equivalent high resolution in approx. 1.48x / 0.74x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification capability.
The LUMIX FZ2000 also features a well-defined grip for a stable hold with minimum fatigue when consistently using the camera over a longer 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.

^1.^ Use SDXC/SDHC Memory Card compatible with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) when using high bitrate video recording mode of 100 Mbps or greater
^2.^ Setting the HDMI output picture quality:
[4:2:2 10bit]: Users can output the image through the HDMI connection in higher picture quality, but cannot record it as a motion picture or still pictures. Ideal when the HDMI output is to be saved on external devices.
[4:2:2 8bit]: Users can record the image while outputting it through the HDMI connection. Ideal for recording while checking the motion picture on an external monitor. When using 4:2:2 / 8-bit output, video is recorded in 4:2:0 / 8-bit on SDXC/SDHC Memory Card.
