Editor's Review

The FZ200 marks a return to the series' vaunted past, with this latest addition boasting an incredible nano coated 25-600mm f2.8 constant zoom. While other manufacturers are piling on the megapixels (Sony) or the zoom range (Nikon and Canon), Panasonic is clearly carving themselves a niche in the high-performance segment of the market. The new 12.1 megapixel sensor coupled with that constant f2.8 and the new "lightspeed" autofocus make the FZ200 a real functional alternative to a DSLR with bulky telephoto lens. The FZ200 actually bests the mirrorless G5's burst numbers at 5.5fps with full-time autofocus (12fps single focus) and high speed 720p recording at 120fps. These performance numbers are supported by a 1 second start-up time and 540-shot battery life. At an initial asking price of $599 only those who really need such performance will bite, but we're glad to see a high-end option like the FZ200 now exists. Reviews are overwhelmingly positive so far, with few finding any real faults in the camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Reviews

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Panasonic produces cameras that provide both a longer zoom range and image stabilization at a price that's relatively cheap. For photographers that need versatility in a small package, Panasonic digital cameras can provide many selections that are suitable. Having something for amateurs and serious enthusiasts at the same time, Panasonic offers a great selection of digital cameras, from ultra compacts to mirrorless cameras. They can be hard to compare since every camera has its own distinctive features and traits.

Users who prefer to use automatic modes will find Panasonic digital cameras very useful. The camera will automatically select the perfect scene mode for a certain subject through use of the iAuto feature, which is standard for nearly all Panasonic cameras made today. This tool, in combination with image stabilization will make it very easy for inexperienced photographers to take photos they can be proud of.

By giving users easy access to settings, reviews are correct in pointing out that Panasonic cameras are made for maximum user friendliness. When you opt for a Panasonic camera, you will find that it possesses an LCD screen, a versatile optical zoom lens, and is both lightweight and fairly compact.

The Panasonic Lumix ZS20 is one of the many notably excellent choices among Panasonic cameras. A GPS tracker, a 20x optical zoom lens, and image stabilization that will make sure your pictures are steady even when you're using maximum zoom are several of the features that make this camera a popular choice. The iAuto feature makes this a perfect choice for amateur photographers while it still includes manual modes as well. Although the image quality is not the best on the market, it still holds its own in regards to many competitors and that in combination with its other features makes it a great deal.
