Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 Digital 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.


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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Versatile video formats and bit rates prepare the LUMIX FZ2500 for use in a wide range of applications. You can select from four recording formats: AVCHD and MP4 for playback ease, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for editing ease. Bit rates extend to a maximum of 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB), with no recording duration limit, for video recording performance that meets the needs of imaging professionals.

The system frequency can be selected from 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA).

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.

When using 4:2:2/10-bit output, simultaneous video recording on SDXC/SDHC Memory Card in the camera is not possible. When using 4:2:2/8-bit output, video is recorded in 4:2:0/8-bit on SDXC/SDHC Memory Card in the camera.

The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record videos with slow or quick motion, such as 120 fps / 5x, all in Full HD. The slow/quick motion function also lets you switch between 1/2x slow and 2x quick motion in a single video while recording. (In 24p playbac)

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.

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.

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.

A high-resolution 2,360k-dot OLED Live View Finder allows high visibility thanks to 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. High 0.74x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) and a wide-viewing angle make it easy to see image details even when the eye is moved away from the centre of the viewfinder.

The rear monitor with tilt/swivel capability gives you the freedom to find unusual perspectives while maintaining easy operation and full image control. Plus, touch control lets you immediately set focus on the subject by simply touching it on the screen, and even lets you release the shutter with a single touch.

A dual ring control system enables focusing and zooming, just like LUMIX G zoom lenses. ND filter and three Fn buttons on the lens barrel offer smooth video operation just like professional video cameras. WB colour temperature setting and slow & quick zoom setting can be allocated to the Fn buttons to enhance video operation.

The LUMIX FZ2500 comes with a variety of connection terminals: a 3.5mm microphone jack, 3.5mm headphone jacks, and 2.5mm jack for remote control.

In combination with the DMW-MS2 Stereo Shotgun Microphone (sold separately), you can switch the following settings on the camera menu: Stereo, Lens Auto, Shotgun, Super Shotgun and Manual.

Imagine being able to decide exactly what you want in focus, even after you've taken the photo. The Post Focus function gives you the power to do just that. Simply capture the scene, review the image and touch the part of the photo you'd like to be pin sharp. It's simple, stunning and all inside the camera.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 Hybrid Digital Camera comes with a full Australian warranty.
