Since its beginnings, photo and video enthusiasts have been very fond of the GH4 camera. Now, as it looks to broaden its Lumix portfolio, Panasonic is introducing the FZ1000, a compact shooter that offers 4K (30fps) video-shooting capabilities to folks who may not want to spend too much money. Inside, there is a 1-inch, 20.1-megapixel "high-sensitivity" MOS sensor, paired with a 16x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit optical zoom lens. For $900, you'll also get a 3-inch articulating LCD, WiFi features, a top ISO of 12,800 and a newly minted AF system which promises to "extremely fast focusing." Panasonic says its Lumix FZ1000 is aimed at those wanting to shoot great pictures and video, but perhaps don't have the need (or bank balance) for something as powerful as its $1,700 GH4. If you're interested, the FZ1000 is set to go on sale late July.
