Ultimate Photo and Video Performance

A powerful zoom, outstanding picture quality and pro-level video performance combine to create the ultimate hybrid camera: the Panasonic LUMIX FZ2500. Create stunning photos and movies with smooth tones, crisp detail, lifelike colour and low noise, even in dimly lit conditions, thanks to the FZ2500’s remarkable 1-inch, 20.1MP sensor and advanced Venus Engine image processor.

Powerful Zoom Optimised for Stills and Video

An integrated 24-480mm f/2.8-4.5 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens gives the Panasonic FZ2500 outstanding versatility and performance. As well as a powerful 20x optical zoom perfect for panoramas through to close-ups, the lens boasts superb optics delivering gorgeous bokeh and minimal flare. Its design is optimised for both stills and video capture; with its inner zoom structure, the lens offers smooth, stable zoom and 80% less image shift compared to the earlier FZ1000. A galvanometer drive Iris (used in professional video cameras) ensures smooth exposure transitions, even when zooming.

Pro-Level Video Features

With the LUMIX FZ2500, the opportunities for videographers are endless. This camera has everything you need to create pro-quality footage, from Cinema 4K (4096x2160/24 fps) and QFHD 4K (3840x2160/30 fps) video in MOV/MP4 to ultra-high bitrate Full HD video at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra)/100 Mbps (IPB) with no recording duration limit. Different bitrates, frequencies (NTSC, PAL, CINEMA) and recording formats (AVCHD, MP4, MP4 (LPCM) and MOV) greatly broaden your professional options, as do other practical features like Variable Frame Rate, Dolly Zoom, and live output via HDMI (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit).

Built-In ND Filter

Essential for video, the Panasonic FZ2500’s built-in ND filter allows you to keep your exposure levels consistent while filming with a fixed shutter speed or wide aperture. When shooting stills, you can produce long exposures and/or beautifully shallow depth of field even in bright conditions.

Ultra High-Speed AF

With its ultra high-speed autofocus system, the Panasonic FZ2500 can sharply freeze even the fastest action. Thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and rapid burst speeds of 12 fps (AF single) and 7 fps (AF continuous) you can be sure to capture the crucial moment.

Designed for Comfort and Intuitive Control

With a well-defined grip and thoughtfully included controls, the Panasonic FZ2500 is optimised for comfort and ease of shooting. The 2.36 million-dot OLED Live View Finder features high (0.74x) magnification and 10,000:1 contrast, ensuring high visibility even when your eye is not centred in the finder. Meanwhile, the tilting/swivelling rear monitor provides the ease of touchscreen control as well as the freedom to shoot from different angles.

4K PHOTO

Transform video footage into high res, 8MP-equivalent stills using the LUMIX FZ2500’s 4K PHOTO feature. Simply shoot a video sequence at 30 fps then select and save your favourite frame as a separate, high resolution image.

Post Focus & Focus Stacking

Take advantage of Post Focus and Focus Stacking to easily and precisely control depth of field in your images. Post Focus mode lets you choose or change your focal point after an image has been captured, opening up endless creative possibilities. With Focus Stacking you can combine multiple focal points to keep everything from foreground to background sharply focused – so even if you’re photographing close-ups, macros or at wide apertures, you can create just the level of defocus you’re after.
