GENERAL

The DMC FZ2000 was introduced by Panasonic in September 2016. It belongs to the Superzooms category.

Panasonic is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Panasonic.

SENSOR

The DMC FZ2000 features a CMOS sensor in 1" size that has an area of approximately 13 x 9 mm² (0.52" x 0.35").

This infographic compares the DMC FZ2000's sensor to other common formats:

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The DMC FZ2000's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 20 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.

The Panasonic supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Panasonic's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

VIEWFINDER

The DMC FZ2000 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.

The magnifcation is c. 0.74x, an excellent value for an electronic viewfinder.

AUTO FOCUS

The DMC FZ2000's auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).

Manual focus is also possible with the Panasonic, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The DMC FZ2000 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 13m (44 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Panasonic's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.

DISPLAY
DMC FZ2000 display and touch screen

The DMC FZ2000 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The DMC FZ2000's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the DMC FZ2000, the highest supported resolution is 4096 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Panasonic DMC FZ2000:

The DMC FZ2000 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The DMC FZ2000 features a built-in stabilizer. With a 20x zoom a must-have.

A nice addition is the Panasonic's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Panasonic over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The DMC FZ2000 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

Our rating of the Panasonic DMC FZ2000

A 1" superzoom, the Panasonic FZ2000 (US: FZ2500) brings a useful 20x zoom with a maximum focal length of 480mm. The camera has a very comprehensive feature set with built-in Wifi and support for 4K video recording. Also available is a connector for an external mike. Battery life is acceptable at around 350 shots per charge. The rather large body allows for a very good viewfinder with a resolution of c. 2.4 megapixel and a class-leading magnification of 0.74x. An easy recommendation for travelling, vacation and nature photography.

The more compact and much cheaper sibling FZ82 (US: FZ80) brings a smaller sensor but offers a whopping 60x zoom range.
