Stunning images even in low-light
The large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise, even when shooting at ISO12800 / extended ISO25600. The wide maximum aperture also helps to produce an impressive shallow depth of field. The FZ2000 lets you create truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting situations.
Newly developed photo/video hybrid lens
The new Leica Vario-Elmarit 24-480mm f2.8-4.5 DC lens boasts high optical performance for both stills and moving image. This lens system features an inner zoom structure with guide pole mechanism for smooth, stable zooming, and dramatically suppresses image shift by 80% compared to the FZ2000's predecessor. A coreless DC motor also enables slow constant zooming from wide to 20x tele-end. A galvanometer drive iris, which is used in professional broadcast cameras, smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness. This assures smooth, seamless iris control even when zooming.
20x optical zoom in a compact body
The new Leica Vario-Elmarit 24-480mm lens has an f2.8-4.5 aperture that resists blurring even for telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 24mm wide-angle to 20x optical zoom while still maintaining the body size. The lens unit consists of 16 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses, 5 aspherical surfaces with 8 aspherical surfaces, and a UHR lens. This lens meets leica’s stringent standards in the MTF value and in the suppression of ghosting and flare.
Video creation meets professional quality
The Lumix FZ2000 further evolves to meet professional quality standards with the capability of 4K-video recording MOV/MP4 and ultra-high bitrate full hd video recording at 200mbps. In addition, a variety of practical functions required for professional video capture are also newly integrated.
Everything in the right place
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. The optimum dial, button, lever and switch layout provides intuitive, comfortable control for both photo and video shooting.
