Panasonic's Fat FZ1000 Zuperzoomer Shoots 4K Video

By Gary Cutlack on at

The new Lumix DMC-FZ1000 bridge camera from Panasonic has quite a few things to boast about, the key selling point being its ability to shoot 4K video at a solid 30fps -- and letting users pop out the equivalent of 8-Megapixel stills from the footage.

Images in this thing are captured by a 1-inch 20.1Mp High Sensitivity MOS sensor through a 25mm Ultra Wide-Angle Leica lens, with Panasonic's "New Venus Engine" managing the processing and Optical Image Stabilisation there to salvage your blurry moments. Onboard Wi-Fi and NFC are your connectivity options, with £749.99 how much money or credit you need to gather ahead of its July launch. [Panasonic via Techradar]
