FZ1000 and digital (iZoom) questions???
Jun 24, 2014

I have been following and reading information about the new Panasonic FZ1000 and I have some questions that I could not find anywhere.

  1. Is digital zoom same as iZoom?
  2. Does the digital zoom (iZoom) works on P A S M?
  3. What is the effective focal length when using the digital zoom (iZoom)? From what I read on the specs, it has 16X optical zoom and 4x digital zoom. What does this equates too? Can I get at least the equivalent of 600mm? Will I lose F-stop when using this?
  4. When using the digital zoom (iZoom), will it still record at the maximum resolution of 5472 x 3648?
  5. Can RAW + JPEG be recorded when using digital zoom (iZoom)?
  6. I understand that the one can do a 8 megapixel still frame capture from the 4K video, when using digital zoom (iZoom) will it still use the 8 megapixel capture or the resolution be smaller?
