The ideal hybrid camera choice for the advanced 4K video enthusiast and photography enthusiast alike.
Large 1-inch 20.1 Megapixel sensor and bright 20X LEICA VARIO-ELMART F2.8-4.5 lens.
4K Ultra HD video recording plus exclusive LUMIX 4K PHOTO and 4K Post Focus and internal Focus Stacking modes.
“CINELIKE D” and “CINELIKE V” for cinema-like gradation, time code, live HDMI output (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit), and lens ND filter controls.
Optional V-Log L upgradability for purchase, and an out of the box unlimited recording duration.
Recording formats of MP4 (LPCM) and MOV, and bit rates extended up to 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps

Pro Video QualityWith the LUMIX FZ2500 4K evolves with the variety of practical functions video enthusiasts and professionals want:

Cinema 4K: 4096 x 2160 / 24 fps
QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / up to 30 fps) video recording in MOV / MP4
Ultra-high bitrate Full HD video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) / 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording duration limit
 
Everything in the Right PlaceA quick-stability grip minimizes hand fatigue while well-placed front/rear dual dials enable quick control over shutter speed and aperture. Plus, a supporting button, lever and switch layout provide intuitive, comfortable control for both photo and video shooting.
 
0.74x Large OLED Live View FinderThe OLED Live View Finder (2,360k-dot) provides exceptional visibility (10,000:1 contrast) for perfect framing in direct sunlight conditions. High 0.74X magnification (35mm camera equivalent) and a wide-viewing angle improves overall visibility.

A tilt/swivel rear touch feature-enabled monitor adds the freedom to capture unusual perspectives. Just touch to immediately set focus or release the shutter.
 
Large 1-inch 20.1 MP SensorThe large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel 4K High Sensitivity MOS Sensor provides impressive details even at high ISOs (ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600), which enables impressive defocus with a shallow depth of field.

The Venus EngineThe LUMIX FZ2500 Venus Engine enables the high-quality image captures and high-speed signal processing required for 4K video recording, while sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and color reproduction are dramatically improved.
 
20x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit LensA bright LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens (F/2.8-4.5) resists blurring, while its angle of view extends from 24mm wide-angle to 20X optical zoom.

This lens meets Leica's stringent standards in the MTF value and in the suppression of ghosts and flaring.
 
Hybrid Photo / Video LensAn internal guide-pole mechanism provides smooth, stable zooming, and dramatically suppresses image shift. A galvanometer-drive iris — used in professional video cameras— smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness to assure smooth, seamless iris control, even when zooming.
 
Ultra High Speed DFD FocusingDFD (Depth From Defocus) instantly calculates the distance to the subject to achieve ultra-fast focus lock even at 7 fps burst shooting with AFC or 12 fps burst shooting with AFS.
 
Macro Photography to 3cmStunning macro photos can be shot with minimum focusing distance of 3cm for flowers, insects and more.
 
Convenient Lens Barrel ControlsA dual-ring control system enables focusing and zooming. ND filter and three Fn lens barrel buttons offer smooth, convenient video operation. WB color temperature settings and slow and quick zoom settings can be assigned to the Fn buttons.
 
Built-in ND FilterThe lens barrel's quick access to ND filters which are essential for creative video shooting to maintain exposure levels with a fixed shutter speed or an open aperture in high brightness.
 
Unmissable Moments With 4K PhotoPanasonic 4K technology lets you turn video into photography with 4K PHOTO. Simply play back a 4K video sequence recorded at the blistering speed of 30fps to select your single best image for truly unmissable moments.
 
Adjust Focus After ShootingThe unique Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus after shooting by layering and combining multiple images in-camera. Great for macro shots.
 
Live Output via HDMIReal-time HDMI output (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit) to an external monitor is possible via an optional micro HDMI cable.* A feature highly prized by professional video producers.
 
CINELIKE D and V Gamma“CINELIKE D” and “CINELIKE V” video for rich, cinema-like gradation.

Optional V-Log L UpgradingAn optional Upgrade Software Key (sold separately) enables log video recording (V-Log L) with exceptional flexibility, as well as a wider dynamic range for color grading in the post-production process. It boasts a log characteristic with 12 stops, and the same characteristic curve and LUT (Look Up Table) can be used in common.

Video based GUISet the GUI to reflect the technical language of video for Shutter Duration/ISO, Angle/ISO, or Shutter Duration/dB.

Time CodeAn SMPTE-compliant Time Code in either Rec Run or Free Run count-up method makes it easy to synchronize multiple video footage or sound sources in the post-production workflow. Drop Frame or Non-Drop Frame is also selectable in the 59.94Hz or 23.98Hz setting.
 
Global Video FormatsBuilt-in global video formats and bit rates are provided in four recording formats: AVCHD and MP4, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for editing ease. Bit rates up to 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB), with no recording duration limit.

System frequencies: 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA)

Microphone And Headphone TerminalsA variety of connection terminals are available: 3.5mm microphone jack, 3.5mm headphone jacks, and 2.5mm jack for remote control.

And with the DMW-MS2 Stereo Shotgun Microphone (sold separately), you can switch these settings on the camera menu: Stereo, Lens Auto, Shotgun, Super Shotgun and Manual.
 
Slow / Quick MotionThe VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record videos with slow or quick motion, such as 120 fps / 5X in 24p playback, all in Full HD. The slow/quick motion function also lets you switch between 1/2X slow and 2X quick motion in a single video while recording.

Dolly ZoomThis technique zooms only the background, without changing the subject's size. A technique often used to express feelings, such as confusion, distress or surprise.
