First birds in flight shots with FZ1000
3

I picked up my FZ1000 today and after spending a bit of time trying to do an initial set-up headed off to try it out. My first impression after turning the camera on, was how quickly it focused. It was instantaneous. A great viewfinder, that now gives live view if you are using the 7 fps burst mode, which is much faster than the 5.5 fps in the FZ200. The only way the FZ1000 can match the FZ200 in zoom length is to use digital zoom, which goes out to 1600mm. Both the extra optical zoom and izoom stop at 800mm. The shots below were all taken with the camera set at about 850mm, so they are in the digital zoom range. I'm very happy so far and can't wait to try it out some more. In just over an hour I took about 950 shots.
