Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

 

The Panasonic FZ2000 is a bridge camera, but perhaps not in a form you'd expect. It's designed to be an all-in-one solution for those who don't want the hassle and expense of carrying around multiple different lenses.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 Review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ2000 (also known as the Panasonic FZ2500) is a super-zoom camera featuring a 20x zoom lens equivalent to a focal range of 24-480mm, 20.1 megapixel 1-inch MOS sensor, 3-inch 1040K-pixel rotating LCD touchscreen, 2,359k OLED...

Panasonic FZ2500 Review

 

Panasonic brought the heat up against Sony's premium RX10-series camera back in 2014 with the FZ1000, its own enthusiast-class long-zoom camera with a 20MP 1-inch-type sensor. Now, they're back with the FZ2500, sporting even more upgrades and features,...

The Panasonic FZ2500 is expected to ship in the US market from December 2016. Pricing is set at around US$1,200, which is about US$400 more than was the FZ1000, but is still some $300 more affordable than the competing Sony RX10 III.

Panasonic Lumix FZ2000 / FZ2500 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ2000, or FZ2500 as it's called in North America, is a high-end DSLR-styled super-zoom camera with a 20x / 24-480mm range, 1inch 20 Megapixel sensor, large EVF, fully-articulated touchscreen and a wealth of pro movie options...

20x lens range with internal zooming ; Built-in 2, 4 and 6 stop ND filter ; 5-speed smooth, stable, slow zooming ; Articulated touch-screen ; C4k or UHD movies, unlimited recording (within battery / card) ; Mic and headphone jacks. HDMI with 10 bit...

Poor battery life and can't be charged in-camera over USB ; No weather sealing ; 4k movies and 4k Photo employ a fairly tight crop ; Results not as crisp as Sony RX10 III

The Lumix FZ2000 / FZ2500 is Panasonic's flagship super-zoom, or if you prefer the term, 'bridge camera'. It's an update to the still available Lumix FZ1000 and like that model is based around a 1 inch sensor for better quality than the tiny sensors in...
