Panasonic FZ1000 Uses a Sony Sensor

Panasonic has announced the new FZ1000 bridge camera which features a 20.1 megapixel 1-inch MOS sensor.

It is also mentioned that unlike Sony, Panasonic managed to solve the heating issue to make it record 4K video.

Panasonic FZ1000 features a super useful 25-400mm 16x optical zoom lens which has an F2.8-4.0 aperture range, 0.09 second auto-focusing speed, a 2,359k OLED Live View Finder (LVF) and a 3-inch 921-K dot LCD display.
