  • Excerpt: I owned this camera for 2 years, and took less than 2 thousand photos with it. It wasn't fun, there was not enough control, and not enough quality. Good for travel, when you want snapshots, and don't expect miracles. Very nice zoom range and tempting constant f/2.8 aperture in whole range.

  • Excerpt: The FZ200 is a nice all around camera. I carried it around all the time when I didn't feel like carrying my heavy Canon DSLR and it's very heavy L lenses, until I purchased the awesome LF1.

Poor Service

  • Summary: The camera works wonderfully and I am very happy with it. One of the best cameras I have ever owned. I purchased a separate bundle from this same company and had many problems with them. Had I known what I know now, I would have purchased the camera elsewhere.

  • Excerpt: I take a lot of scenic pictures while I'm out hiking. This camera is good for that because it's easy to operate and it works fairly quickly. Am having a little trouble figuring out the zoom part of it, and there is a small bubble crack in the lens.

  • Summary: Good camera, spoilt by the con above.
  • Pros: Does (most) of what it says on the box.
  • Cons: TAKE NOTE: No reviews mention this anywhere but it will NOT take RAW pictures in full auto mode. You are limited to JPEG. Extremely disappointed by this, a huge step back from my previous Panasonic camera

It's limitations really become apparent quickly

  • Summary: My wife bought me this camera recently so I thought I'd share my opinion. This is a very nice superzoom camera but like all of them, the critical element, the sensor, determines just how good the images will be. This camera uses a smallish sensor which has a good bit of noise even at base ISO 100.

Steep learning curve, inadequate documentation

  • Summary: Impressive machine, but I'm still working on mastering its complex, nonintuitive (compared to more standard DSLR) interface. Were it not for online third-party instructions, I'd consider returning for refund.
