I am looking at the cameras Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000. Are they the same camera? What are the features that makes them different, if that is the case.

DMC or no DMC it looks like both cameras are the same camera, so I don't think it's something that you need to be concerned about, same camera = same features.

I did some research and seems like DMC is part of the model number/name that Panasonic uses for this camera.

I found this post on what DMC might stand for - digital media camera:

What does "DMC" mean?

I hope this helps.


This is the same camera. Different sellers sometime name it Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 or Panasonic Lumix FZ-1000 but as far as I know the formal name is Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (as it is on the Panasonic web site)


Absolutely nothing. This is the same camera. All Panasonic "Lumix" still image cameras officially have a "DMC-" prefix ahead of the "marketing" model number.

  • @EricShain Thanks. It does add the information that all Panasonic Lumix still image cameras have a DMC- prefix in their official model number. It also includes a link to a list of Lumix model numbers at the Wikipedia page for 'Lumix.' – Michael C Nov 13 '18 at 21:00
  • I agree with @MichaelClark, for me the answer did add value and shouldn't have been down voted. – Brendan Vogt Nov 14 '18 at 6:32
