Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000: Best New Cameras for 2015


Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

The FZ1000 is the world’s first compact cam to shoot 30 frames per second of 4K video — the same resolution as on those expensive ultra-high-definition TVs. It also has a 1-inch sensor, which is bigger than that of nearly every other camera this size. Its 16X zoom lens is most impressive unzoomed, when it captures sharp portraits with artfully blurred backgrounds. [$900;]
