Great little camera with operational limitations.

  • Summary: Am still getting to know this camera. Bought it for its 48x zoom and small size to use for bird photography. In truth, it is only a 24x optical zoom. Any zooming beyond that is digital and gives you digitized (noisy) pictures. But, it functions as a nature macro pretty nicely (bees on flowers, etc).

  • Summary: The pictures this camara is giving me are wonderful - exactly what I was looking for (speed and zoom). I only point and shoot - so I'm sure it can do much much more and I will have to spend some time learning what it does. This camera is a little heavier than what I am used to. And the only thing I don't like is that I am tied to my computer to learn since they do not provide a hard copy manual.

Great Lightweight Bridge camera!

Adorama
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Easy to carry all day. Great range of zoom and &fnof; stops. Works well in low light and not noisy at 1600 ISO!<br /><br />Would be MUCH BETTER at 16 megapixels, and it needed a closer focus Macro function.<br /><br />16 megapixels and closer focus, OH, and a manual you can READ would have given this a 5 star.<br /><br />Image quality not up to par with Nikon P600 ;~(, even shooting RAW.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Lightweight, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Needs Closer Focus, Needs More Pixels - 16

Very good camera

King, Nebraska Furniture Mart
3 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Casual user hoping to become enthusiast, so learning to use it. Can be complex if you go out of auto mode, but worth the trouble to get better quality photos. Nice constant f/2.8 lens to equivalent 600 mm zoom worth the lower optical zoom (24x). Also, don't have to carry multiple lens as in a DSLR. NFM had it at suggested retail price, but they matched Amazon's price. A bit overpriced compared to other similar cameras, but it does have a better lens.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, High Res Viewfinder, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera back in January 2014 and reviewed it on this site. It's a great camera for those wanting to step up from a pocket Point and Shoot without having to buy a DSLR wit a variety of lenses. The quality is good for a small sensor. I love the added control you have with this camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: Poor Flash

Exceeds my expectations

shot in the dark, B&H Photo
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Needed a camera with a long zoom that works well in low light, is easy to use and not bulky. So far the FZ200 has exceeded my expectations in all categories. Camera is very intuitive and Panasonic even embedded help screens in some menus. The FZ200 is lightweight and can be help with one hand. Grip is rubberized and even has a place to rest your thumb so you don't accidentally push a button. Image quality is excellent.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Small / Compact

A must have camera in your bag

  • Summary: I have 3 Nikon cameras, but I reach for my FZ200 if I need a sure shot. The sloMotion option is the best video option on the market. I'm still learning new things about the camera everyday.
