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...

  • 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 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

Panasonic Lumix FZ200 review

  • 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.
  • Pros: Sublime picture quality, Built well, Movable display
  • Cons: Video not so good

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 review

30 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 was our favourite ultra-zoom camera of 2011, but this year's FZ200 ups the stakes yet again. It keeps its predecessor's relatively modest 24x zoom but now maintains an f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range.

  • 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.

Pocket Lint
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

  • Excerpt: FZ200 imponerar – inte tack vare sina specifikationer, utan tack vare de faktiska bilderna. Medan man med de andra kamerorna verkligen måste kämpa från bild till bild för att få bra exponeringar, levererar Panasonic bra bilder ...
