What is a bridge camera? A bridge camera is a camera that fills the niche between a single-lens reflex camera (SLR’s) and the point and shoot camera.

These cameras look like DSLR cameras, but have built-in lenses, super zooms and are much lighter to carry around. This is why they are so popular with novice and more serious photographers.

Product Description

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera is a bridge-style point-and-shoot camera featuring a large 20.1MP 1″ High Sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor to enable high-resolution 4K QFHD video recording and rich still shooting up to 50 fps.

The image sensor affords notable sensitivity, to an expandable ISO 25600, with a high signal-to-noise ratio for a cleaner image quality with reduced image noise. Designed for effective hybrid photo and video recording performance, the 4K output can also be used to permit in-camera 8MP screen grabs from video files for simplified multimedia output.

Offsetting the imaging performance is a long-reaching 16x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit zoom lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-400mm. Covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, this f/2.8-4 lens incorporates aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements within its construction to realize a sharp, clear image quality with minimal chromatic aberration and distortion. HYBRID O.I.S. image stabilization further benefits working in difficult lighting conditions by minimizing the appearance of camera shake across five distinct axes. The lens also utilizes a linear AF motor, that is benefitted by LUMIX Depth From Defocus technology to achieve fast focusing performance throughout the zoom range.

It has a fairly steep learning curve if you are a beginner, however to many novices like myself, this can be challenging and fun.

Many of my friends are quite impressed with my photographs and videos and ask questions like, ” Where did you take your photography class? “, and ” … these are really great shots …”.

Even though I am very much a novice at photography, I have to admit that the new Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 4K  has definitely set a new fire in my belly – thank you Panasonic!
