The Ultimate Photo/Video Hybrid Camera

Exceptionally high videographic performance that meets professional needs has been added to a powerful zoom and 1-inch sensor in a camera truly designed for creators.


Newly Developed Photo/Video Hybrid Lens

The new F2.8-4.5 24-480mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens boasts high optical performance for both photos and videos.

This lens system features an inner zoom structure with guide-pole mechanism for smooth, stable zooming, and dramatically suppresses image shift by 80% compared with the predecessor FZ1000. A coreless DC motor also enables slow constantly zooming from wide to 20x tele-end.

A galvanometer drive iris, which is used in professional video cameras, smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness. This assures smooth, seamless iris control even when zooming.


20x Optical Zoom in a Compact Body

The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens has an F2.8-4.5 brightness that resists blurring even for telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 24mm wide-angle to 20x optical zoom* while maintaining the body size.

The lens unit consists of 16 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses, 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, and a UHR lens. This lens meets Leica's stringent standards in the MTF value and in the suppression of ghosts and flaring.

Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology achieves a beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with an invisible edge line.


Built-in ND Filter for Flexible Exposure Control<

Built-in ND filters are essential for creative video shooting. You can record videos while maintaining the exposure level with a fixed shutter speed or with an open aperture even in high brightness. For still photo recording, it also enables beautiful bokeh effects and slow-shutter shooting even under clear skies.


3cm Macro Shooting

Stunning macro photos can be shot with minimum focusing distance of 3cm. You can enjoy shooting close-up shots with the LUMIX FZ2500 only to express spectacular details of flowers, insects and so on.


Video Creation to Meet Pro Quality

The LUMIX FZ2500 further evolves to meet professional quality and standard with the capability of 4K (Cinema 4K: 4096 x 2160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / up to 30 fps) video recording in MOV / MP4 and ultra high bitrate Full HD video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) / 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording duration limit. In addition, a variety of practical functions required for professional video recording are newly integrated.


Live Output via HDMI

The LUMIX FZ2500 is capable of real-time image output (4:2:2/8 bit or 4:2:2/10 bit) to the external monitor via an optional micro HDMI cable*. It is suitable for the professional video making that requires serious monitoring of the imageries. You can choose to output only the recording content or the content with the setting menus individually depending on a display.


Large 1-inch Sensor - Stunning Images Even in Low Light

The large 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor improves the S/N ratio, making it possible to capture clear images with minimum noise even when shot at ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600. The rich amount of light helps to produce an impressive defocus with shallow depth of field. It lets you create truly stunning images in a wide variety of shooting situations.


Advanced Image Processor Venus Engine

The LUMIX FZ2500 incorporates the same Venus Engine as the LUMIX high-end system cameras. It enables the high-quality image captures and high-speed signal processing required for 4K video recording and high bit-rate video recording. The combination of the High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves stunning picture quality even in low-light situations. Sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction are dramatically improved to achieve even higher picture quality.


Ultra High Speed Focusing

Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultra-high-speed AF and 7 fps burst shooting with AFC. 12 fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.
