Panasonic unveils FZ1000 II bridge camera and TZ95




Panasonic unveils FZ1000 II bridge camera and TZ95 compact camera
Panasonic has announced the successor of the FZ1000 released in 2014. The Japanese manufacturer also announced the smaller TZ95 camera. Both cameras are largely similar to their predecessors.

Panasonic has not made any major changes to the FZ1000 II . The bridge camera still has a 1 “sensor with a 20.1 megapixel resolution and a lens with a zoom range of 25 to 400mm in a full frame equivalent, with a variable aperture of f / 2.8 to 4.0, and the 4k movie function with maximum 30 fps is unchanged.

Furthermore, the 4k photo function has been added. This function, which is already included in the G7 system camera, makes it possible to retrieve individual frames from a short film recording and save them as a photo. Users are also given the opportunity to choose the focal point afterwards.

The viewfinder still has an OLED screen with a resolution of 2.4 million pixels, but the magnification has increased from 0.70 to 0.74x. The 3 “LCD on the back has a slightly higher resolution, from 921,000 to 1.25 million points, and this screen can still be fully rotated and folded forward using a hinge on the side, but Panasonic now also has it touch-sensitive.

Also the maximum shooting speed of twelve images per second while retaining autofocus is unchanged and the FZ1000 II again has image stabilization that has to compensate up to five stops. The new version now also supports Bluetooth in addition to WiFi and the battery can be charged via USB.

Panasonic also comes with the FZ95 , the successor of the FZ90. The new compact camera still has a 1 / 2.3 “sensor with a 20.3 megapixel resolution and an objective with a range of 24-720mm in full frame equivalent, and the variable aperture is unchanged with f / 3.3 to f / 6.4. Panasonic has added the so-called Zoom Composition Assistant feature to the new camera, which allows users to follow a subject with a push of a button when zooming out quickly.

The electronic viewfinder has twice the resolution: 2.33 million pixels. The fold up for self-making, touch-sensitive 3 “LCD on the back still has a resolution of 1.04 million pixels, the TZ95 now has bluetooth as a new addition and the battery can be charged via usb. GPS tagging is possible, although the camera does not seem to have its own GPS chip for this, Panasonic also added the 4k photo function to the new compact camera.

The FZ1000 II is on the market somewhere in early April for 849 euros. The Panasonic FZ95 will be available for 449 euros at the end of April.
