MediaDigitalVideo: I love to see from FZ-1000 users if the zoom is strait when using the zoom/focus ring (zoommode).

No you will not because in 1080/120p slow motion mode you cannot use the zoom when the recording is running. It's sad. Neither the stabi works and the control generally is limited.

Not quite continuous. I made some tests

I have more I can upload eventually.
If you use iZoom then there is a stop between the optical and digital part. Otherwise the speed is not even and smooth so for video it might be tricky to zoom nicely. If you learn to use the slowest speed and zoom only about 2x in a case then it can be ok.

They opened a new center in China at the same time.

mpgxsvcd: Everyone thinks that youtube is always the culprit for compression. In this case it wasn't. This video wasn't rendered to a high enough bit rate or resolution. That was probably because it was so long and would have taken forever to upload.

To still shooters the compression probably was just something they tend to accept. For someone who knows that Youtube doesn't have to have compression artifacts it was very distracting.

Scaling this video to 1440p or 4K would cause YouTube to allocate a much higher bit rate to the video. 4K is actually easier to compress than 1080p @ 60 FPS would be. Therefore, up-scaling this video probably would have produced a much cleaner result.

Yes, if I have e.g. a 480p footage to upload I convert it to 1080p first and upload it as a HD. The bandwidth of 1080p for private users is about 8Mbps. (It might be more now?)

But it's Austrian. They should give a Sacher-Torte to each buyer.

Biological_Viewfinder: I hate Panasonic. I hate their cameras, their TVs, everything.
I have never owned a good Panasonic anything.

Now there's another camera, with new samples, and another high rating (seems like all cameras get high ratings nowadays). But I've been fooled before by Panasonic, and then again when I thought they changed their ways. Every single Panasonic camera I have owned quickly became a reason to buy a different camera. Horrible noise! Horrible color! Horrible camera!

Careful with that axe!
You might get hurt.

In reply to:

iae aa eia: I would prefer to have seen a 1" sensor with a lens with the same aperture of the LX7 (even if the tele end was as short as the LX100). That aperture range was a trademark. At least for me, it was like, "Man, I have a 1.4 Leica lens. Wow!" I know this isn't all, but it was quite an appeal. It really was a surprise to see an even larger sensor, though, but I miss this step lighter aperture range. I think I also miss the cleaner but catchy design of the LX3/7 and that less matte metal housing. But, well, aside these sentimental issues, it's quite an update.

The problem is that the F-stop for small and M43 cameras is given according to their real focal length and NOT for the equivalent advertised focal length.
LX7 : real focal length 4.7..17.7 mm
eq focal length : 24-90 mm
The F-Stop: 1.4..2.3 is calculated with the real focal length.

A bigger sensor if the technology is exactly the same will gather more light with a given F-Stop. What is the problem?

F-stop = focal length (real) / diameter of the entrance pupil
