Don’t bother with the sample movie, Windows won’t play it…
Just wasted an hour and a lot of my download quota

The video plays fine for me on Win 8.1 64-bit using both the default Windows video player and also the current version of VLC media player.

Aimed right at the new Sony RX10, the FZ1000 not only beats it in Specifications and has 4K, but it also comes in at $400.00 less.
You gotta love this competition!

It is indeed 400 less expensive, but one can not compare it to the 2,8 constant lens thst Rx10 has. Also respect that video uses just 8 mb of the sensor while Sony’S 1” sensor uses full size readout. Rx10 does no 4k, maybe the pixel count is too high for that, or a heat problem exists. If we consider this camera for stills and decent video, it offers a lot for the price and Leica’s lenses need no publicity, they are able to compete with Zeiss gkass anyway. Let’s now wait for the new compacr Lx8 to show up with the same sensor. What gives Sony a bad point is their overpricing policy,

“955 x 1432 pixels @ 24 bits per pixel”

I would really like to get a real 4k clip from the camera, this clip is MP4 and listed as 3840 not the 4096 and as 25fps (pal). Focus is fast, but seeing lots of fine detail artifacts during movement which may not be there in the real clip.. plus I am seeing in 2k but this system has had good clean conversions with other 4k content so I am more guessing it is the file.

Few are the cameras that plow the essential and fundamental combination of not small sensor size and fast glass so well. The RX10 has a constant f2.8 while the FZ1000 begins at f2.8 and slips only one stop to f4.0 across that enormous 16x zoom range. Constant f-stops are always costly. f2.8 is a TWO stop advantage over any long zoom that stops at f5.6; and it is sitting in front of a sensor with a ONE stop disadvantage compared to m4/3 or APS-C sensors. Net sum, it is a WIN of ONE stop, on a camera/lens combination that CANNOT be touched for the price. In the Olympus, it would take TWO professional zoom lenses and an ego that requires an EM-1, and it would easily set you back $3000. In the APS-C ranges, the professional lenses are borrowed from the full frame line in combinations that make the quoted Olympus look like a fire sale.

I had always wanted an update / upgrade by Fuji for the X-S1.  Amazingly, Panasonic did it.  I can’t fault Fuji for maybe not pursuing this particular avenue while they were busy birthing an entire X-System for interchangeable lenses.

For me the RX was a non-starter.  It’s a)very expensive to me for a 200mm top end, and b) it’s only a 200mm top end.  The dizzying rush in the small sensor bridgecams to 1000mm is silly for me.

What I had hoped Fuji would do was update the X-S to a larger sensor, and with that I could accept a shorter zoom, and I wanted proper video, a swiveling screen, and . . . well Panasonic did it instead.

I think people miss the point of this very small niche in the market.  I want something better and more capable than the SX Canons, the S Fujis, etc., but I want to skip the large kit involving multiple interchangeable lenses.  Essentially build a man-sized camera as capable as a good prosumer DSLR with a large zoom range and a larger sensor.

With my X-S1, I leave the house with the camera, a Fuji dedicated flash, a spare batt, and that’s it.  With this I’m ready for anything from macros
to nature shots at 600mm to bounced-flash indoors, all with a very minimal kit.  This traveling light is the appeal for me.

I shall look forward to the reviews of this camera.

Great samples! Great camera! The movie can be played with Quicktime at many sizes. This is good to see the image quality. But, of corse, you must have a computer with good hardware to play it, like a i7.

The larger sensor / lens comb. is an obvious low light winner against the x-s1 ,but from what I am seeing in the still images posted , the x-s1 has IQ easily as good as the posted pics. I will stay with my x-s1 ,  with it’s longer zoom and of course fuji color. If I need better IQ or better low light , I will look at a x-t1 or x 100s.
  I had a lumix bridge with leica glass , nice camera but I just don’t see them in the ballpark for color saturation or overall IQ. right now , fuji x cameras are being compared to some very expensive dslr kits for IQ . Canon 5dmkiii for example.Many have the fuji superior in IQ up to 1600iso.

Je possède un FZ50 mais je n’ai jamais réussi a prendre une photo d’un oiseau en vol ? A cause de la latence du déclenchement, même si celle-ci était minime. Cela est-il possible avec le le FZ1000 ?

in english :

I have a FZ50 but I never managed to take a picture of a bird in flight? Because of the trigger latency, even if it is minimal. Is it possible with the FZ1000?
