Panasonic FZ200

Imaging Resource
4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Panasonic has a long-standing legacy for producing quality long-zoom bridge cameras, including the FZ150 superzoom which we reviewed and heartily recommended a little more than a year ago.
  • Pros: Leica-branded 24x optical zoom lens (25-600mm equivalent) with constant f/2.8 max aperture, Effective Power O.I.S. image stabilization, Full-res burst shooting at 12 frames per second, Fast autofocus and very low prefocused shutter lag, Excellent low-light AF, A ton of creative modes and filters,...
  • Cons: A bit pricey for a moderate superzoom / bridge camera, UI relies heavily on use of rear thumb dial, which some may find frustrating, EVF doesn't automatically switch on when you look through it, AF struggles somewhat at longer tele lengths (a common problem with hand-held long zooms), LCD monitor...

Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Review

What Digital Camera
13 December 2012
  • Summary: On the whole, the standard of images produced by the FZ200 is high. Images display a good, even tone with a respectable tonal range with detail maintained in both shadow and highlights.
  • Pros: Contact maximum aperture of f/2.8 is a real welcome feature, excellent build quality, good handling, solid image quality
  • Cons: Lack of an eye sensor on the viewfinder, viewfinder itself could do with being larger, LCD screen not the highest resolution

PC Magazine
18 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The 24x Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 doesn't have the most ambitious zoom ratio, but a sharp f/2.8 aperture lens and speedy performance make up for it.
  • Pros: Fast f/2.8 zoom lens. Speedy performance. Sharp images. Excellent EVF. Hot shoe and mic input. Raw support.
  • Cons: Expensive. Rear LCD could be sharper. Not the longest zoom in class. No GPS.

  • Summary: While other manufacturers have concentrated on making their super-zoom cameras bigger in terms of their focal range, most notably Canon with the 50x zoom PowerShot SX50 HS camera, Panasonic have bucked the trend with the new FZ200 by making the lens faster.

10 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The FZ200 has its f/2.8 aperture trump card to play, which will beat any other superzoom competitor out there, even the larger-sensor versions. Now that’s quite a statement, but this is quite a camera.
  • Pros: An f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range, 24-600mm equivalent range is significant, vari-angle screen, decent battery life, raw file capture available
  • Cons: It’s big, at more than £500 it is pricey, no touchscreen, viewfinder refresh rate on the low side (makes it a bit juddery), no display of AF/MF on rear screen, mic input is 2.5mm not 3.5mm

  • Conclusion: In der Praxis kann die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 weitestgehend überzeugen. Wie sie bei der Bildqualität und der Geschwindigkeit abschneidet, klären unsere Laborergebnisse. Die Bildaufnahme übernimmt bei der Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 (Datenblatt) ein High Sensitivity-MOS-Sensor mit 12,0 Megapixel...
  • Pros: Klassenübliche Bildqualität, 24-fach Zoomobjektiv mit 25 bis 600mm KB-Brennweite, Mit 25mm sehr brauchbarer Weitwinkelbereich, Durchgängiges lichtstarkes Objektiv (durchgehend F2,8), Noch relativ kompakte und nicht zu schwere Kamera trotz großem Brennweitenbereich, Die Digitalkamera liegt dank Ha...
  • Cons: Verarbeitung des Kameragehäuses könnte hochwertiger sein, Elektronischer Sucher klein und schaltet nicht automatisch bei Bedarf um, Display mit "nur" durchschnittlicher Auflösung (460.000 Subpixel), Keine Liveview-Ausgabe über HDMI möglich
