Panasonic Lumix FZ200 review

What Digital Camera
14 December 2012
  • Summary: The headline feature of the FZ200 is its 'world's first' constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the focal range, so there's no doubt that the optical capability of the camera is going to be the main focus for many photographers. The good news is that the camera performs particularly well in this area, producing some excellent images with very few flaws.

  • 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.

Panasonic's Lumix FZ200 is across-the-board excellent

CNET
12 June 2012
  • Summary: If you're searching for a long-zoom camera that falls in between a point-and-shoot and digital SLR experience, look no further than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.
  • Cons: The FZ200 is expensive, especially if all you're after is a long zoom lens. It doesn't have built-in GPS or Wi-Fi, or a proximity sensor for switching from the LCD to EVF. The SD card slot and battery compartment can't be accessed when the camera is on a tripod.

  • Conclusion: If you want a superzoom cam then, we'd recommend the Lumix FZ200 which wipes the floor with rival snoopy snappers. A small and solid build coupled with 24x optical zoom and that excellent Auto mode make it a winner but remember, video can be a mixed bag. As an overall package, it's our superzoom of choice in Stuff's best compact cameras line-up .
  • Pros: Sublime picture quality, Built well, Movable display
  • Cons: Video not so good

  • Excerpt: Superzoom cameras have been stretching zoom capacities for years, but it looks as though Panasonic’s latest Lumix FZ200 has taken a different approach: it’s opted to maintain its predecessor’s 24-600mm equivalent zoom, but now offers an f/2.8 aperture throughout the whole range. Yep, you read that right: f/2.8 across the entire zoom. Yoiks, could the Lumix FZ200 be what the superzoom fold has been missing?
  • 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

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200

PhotoReview
5 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The DMC-FZ200 replaces the FZ150 at the top of Panasonic's fixed-lens, ultra-zoom line-up, introducing a new zoom lens and image sensor. The Leica-branded 24x zoom lens is the first of its type to support a maximum aperture of f/2.8 across its entire zoom range, which is revolutionary for this type of camera and places the FZ200 in a class of its own. Faster lenses always require more glass, making them larger, heavier and more costly to produce.
  • Pros: You want an all-in-one camera with P, A, S and M shooting modes plus a useful range of functions., You require effective image stabilisation., You like shooting close-ups of flowers and other small objects., You'd like good performance for shooting both still pictures and HD video clips. Don't buy this camera if:, You're looking for a pocketable camera., You do a lot of low-light shooting and need noise-free images at high ISO settings.Image sensor: 6.17 x 4.55 mm sen...
