Panasonic releases two new LUMIX consumer cameras – the LUMIX FZ1000 II and the LUMIX TZ95. The FZ1000 II is a 1-inch sensor bridge camera with a 16x telephoto zoom lens and a flip-out touchscreen. The LUMIX TZ95 is a new compact travel zoom camera with a very small body, 1/2.3-inch sensor, 30x zoom telephoto lens and a tilting LCD. Both cameras record 4K UHD video at up to 30fps. Ready for pre-order now.

Panasonic LUMIX FZ1000 II

The first generation FZ1000 was introduced already five years ago. Now the time has come to release its successor – the FZ1000 II. It is a bridge camera, meaning it has a rather bulky form with an ergonomic grip and a built-in long range lens. In other words – it is a fixed lens ultrazoom camera that looks like a DSLR.

The camera incorporates a 1-inch 20.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with 5-axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ (optical image stabilizer). The sensor should have improved lowlight capabilities, thanks to its high signal-to-noise ratio. Video recording is possible in 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution at 30/25/24p. In the official press release, there was no information about 1080p modes, codec or bitrate. There is a 4K photo function, which can help users choose the best photo (frame) from a 30fps burst. Other 4K photo functions include Post Focus, Focus Stacking and the ability to combine multiple images for a “stromotion” effect.

Since its introduction, Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service has been playing fast-follower to Netflix. Not long after Netflix announced it was diving into producing original series, Amazon said it was doing the same; Netflix barreled into 4K UHD resolution, and shortly thereafter, Amazon did too. Today we see that trend continuing as Amazon announces that its original series will soon be the first titles from the service to be offered up in High Dynamic Range.

But what does that even mean?

For those unfamiliar, High Dynamic Range is one of the latest buzzwords to hit TV tech — some even say it is a more visually impressive evolution of TV picture quality than 4K resolution. Often referred to as HDR, this new feature in video imagery is designed to allow striking contrast between light and dark images, creating a dazzling picture that aims to model what we see in the natural world under the illumination of sunlight.

I hope this rumor is true! I have been wondering for some time when Apple would create a 4k or better display. I am hopeful that there will soon be separate 4k Apple display as well!
