Excerpt: A FEW OF THE PHOTOS I TOOK WITH THIS CAMERA WERE OF GOOD QUALITY, BUT ONLY AFTER REALLY STUDYING THE MANUAL AND "TWEAKING' THE SETTINGS SUGGESTED BY OTHER LUMIX FZ200 OWNERS. I RAN INTO TROUBLE WHEN TRYING TO DO MACRO AND THE CAMERA WOULD NOT ALWAYS FOCUS.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
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: A bridge camera that is not professional quality as DSLR's go. Don't get your hopes up about quick manual controls. Everything is a menu selection with small wheels and buttons. Good as a complex point and shoot with video function. Don't pay the usual list price of $599.00 for this camera.
Pros: Light weight. good (FUN) point and shoot. BuyDig's price [...]
Cons: Cheap feel. PLASTIC. Telephoto needs digital extender to be impressive Iris and focus manual controls not easily manipulated.
Summary: Bought this camera for my wife. If I had to do it over again, I would buy something else. One big problem is that there is no written manual, it is on a cd so she can't just sit down and read it. That has hindered her in learning to use it. The mode dial does not have a lock.
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.
Pros: Easy To Use, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I just started using it seems to be pretty easy I'm having a little trouble figuring out how to focus but I'm sure once I working a little bit I should probably have a little better luck a rate and see if like it's a pretty good camera doyennes Astarte I'll tell you about it how you about what it...
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
