A lovely piece of equipment

published

This is my first bridge camera, having previously owned medium format equipment and all the associated lenses needed to catch the photo's I wanted which I found to be a pain carting them wherever I went.
The FZ 2500 I have found easy to use without having to carry extra bits and pieces with me. After market publications simplified learning process and I can still capture 99% of the photos that I want. For me the lumix FZ 2500 has been one of my better decisions regarding cameras.

Purchased in October 2017 for A$1,700.00.

Yes there is much more to this model than I could put in this review - amazing camera for sure! .
I use the image app all the time, it's great too and works very well every time I use it.

No worries. If the FZ2500 created proxy files for 4K video I would never have had to have bought the Sony RX10iv. I appreciate your comments.

No it's less.

Less zoom than the FZ80 but a much larger sensor, the FZ80 achieves 60x zoom by using a small sensor meaning the image quality is much lower than the FZ2500, (depth of field is enhanced greatly with the larger sensor in the FZ2500 too) and in low light the FZ80 renders images very grainy/noisy especially when using full zoom in low light.

480mm zoom onto a 1inch sensor is crazy good and makes the FZ2500 a far more capable camera than the FZ80.
The zoom can be extended while maintaining image quality on the FZ2500 by selecting intelligent zoom ( i-zoom ) rather than digital zoom - this doubles the zoom range without compromising quality too much especially when switching i-resolution to high in the main menu.

You get 960mm zoom in this 'i-zoom' mode with a 1 inch sensor rendering good low noise image quailty - incredible!!.

This model represents "quality over quantity" compared to the FZ80 in my opinion having used both.

Thanks my current FZ80 has zoom error and turn off turn on message but with its 60x zoom I can buy two FZ80 for the price of this.
