Product Description

The Lumix FZ200 Digital Camera from Panasonic is Panasonic's latest digital compact camera to offer an f/2.8 aperture across the full range of its zoom. And given that the full range runs to 600mm (in 35mm format), that's saying something. The lens on the FZ200 is a 24x optical zoom lens that starts at the wide angle end as a 25mm and zooms all the way to 600mm. This is an incredible range that encompasses all the focal lengths you could ever need and it offers an f/2.8 aperture at all of those lengths. Normally, this is something that only high end professional lenses offer, but with this Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens, you can have the speed and light collecting ability of an f/2.8 in an easy-to- use, easy-to-hold compact camera. It's hard to understate the improvements your photos will show, especially zoom close-ups, when you are shooting at f/2.8. The f/2.8 will allow you to use faster shutter speeds at full zoom or lower light and get sharp, blur-free images. Add to that, the Light Speed Auto Focus and 12 frames per second burst shooting speed and you have no reason to ever miss a shot. Really. Also, a newly developed 12.1 MP high sensitivity MOS sensor and high performance LSI Venus Engine image processor equal high speed response to match the lens' speed and sensitive, high resolution image quality that will make all those shots you're now able to get, worth getting. In addition to high speed continuous shooting and Auto Focus, the Venus Engine image processor also offers quick start-up time and High Speed Video up to 240 frames per second which will slow down fast-moving subjects for awesome slo-mo.

I'm the previous owner of a Canon Rebel XSi DSLR and a Canon SX20. I loved my Rebel, which I bought to take Photography and Graphic Design classes in college. After owning it for two years (and investing $1500 into it, lenses, and other equipment), it was stolen. Not wanting or able to afford investing into another DSLR, I stuck with the Canon brand and bought an SX20 "superzoom" camera. It worked well, but I ended up using it mostly for video work for my church. Then I let a "friend" borrow it for school and never saw him or the camera again. Notice a pattern here? Now that I'm doing freelance work, photos/video for my church, and wanting to keep up with doing amateur nature photography, I went camera shopping once again.

I've always been a fan of Canon, but I'm also a fan of having the best you can afford, and brand loyalty only goes so far. One of my major gripes with the SX20 was it's crappy low-light abilites. And even though Canon's new SX50 is cheaper than the FZ200 and has a 50X lens, it has a maximum aperature of 3.4 (that goes to 6.5 zoomed all the way in) - not good for low light and for a lens that long. I'd had friends recommend cameras from Sony and Panasonic, and after some research, came across the FZ200. I liked the basic specs - 12.1MP, 24X zoom, full manual controls - plus it shoots RAW, has a hotshoe, a microphone jack and 1080p video (remember, I shoot movies too), and - this sealed the deal for me - an aperture of f2.8 through the entire zoom range.

After having it for a few months and taking trips to parks, DC, and a few zoos, here's what I love about it:

Everything.

There's nothing this camera can't do. Want usable pictures and video in stupid low light? It'll do it. Like to edit RAW? It'll do it.

This is a very capable gem of a camera, and if you're persistent and patient, you'll be able to get some truly terrific images with it. I photograph birds 99% of the time, quite a demanding discipline. In good light, the FZ200 is wonderful. (Though even then, the auto focus could be better.) In lower light, the AF is slow or painfully and practically non-existant for a subject that is usually moving around a lot. For non-moving subjects, you'd fare better.
I have other complaints; for example, the four-way controller is far too easily influenced by my hand when I don't want it to be, as in when I'm simply using the grip to try to take a photo. It's very easy to accidentally influence the "WB" (white balance) when gripping the camera. I've learned to grip the camera in a rather uncomfortable way so as not to turn on the WB, but it should be designed so this is not a problem.
As said, it's not a perfect instrument, but for the price and abilities of the camera, I feel it's quite a bargain. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. (One more item: If you're used to using a DSLR with a big lens, (I also own and use a Nikon D7000 and have a Sigma 150-500mm lens on it,) you'll love the convenience, weight, and size of the Panasonic FZ200. I often use it without a tripod and the image stabilization works very well. (And using it minus the tripod allows far more mobility, meaning you'll get shots you can't get with a tripod.) On the other hand, a tripod has its place.

I have my days of Range cameras, SLR and DSLR. Cano, Nikon, Rollie. . . Really getting tired of carrying heavy load when I travel. Several years ago start using Panasonic TZ1, ZS10, ZS20. When Panasonic came out FZ200 with 25-600 mm F2.8 Leica lenses I just got to have it! Very nicely built with all kinds of useful features, pictures came crispy sharp. Oh, boy, I would never have a shot in a 600mm F2,8 lenses in DSLR. And it's a LEICA!

I, just bought this camera before Christmas. I LOVE IT. I sold my Nikon D-3000 and five lenses. I, was tired of lugging all this equipment around. The Panasonic does more then my older camera did. I also get a video camera.I love the white balance that you can view right in the view finder. There is some other bells and whistle also, that my other camera didn't have. Leica lens is crisp and clear. I recommend this to people who want somethig simple, but still have control of your camera. All the review where right. GET IT!!

Greatest performing camera short of a true DSLR. Maintaining the f2.8 Aperature thru the entire 600mm range is impt for indoor gymnastics photos where light is limited.
Also, as a PGA golf instructor, the 120fps is great to capture slo mo golf swings of my students.
I look forward to years of great photos.

I'm a dedicated Panny shooter. Started with their FZ50 superzoom about 6 years ago and in recent years have stepped up. I own both a GH2 and also the new GH3 4/3 models. Both those have their own great features and strong points, but now that I've had the FZ200 I see they do not have the convenience and light weight that makes it my first choice when I wanna grab a few quick shots.

Image quality is EXCELLENT. I prefer to shoot JPG (tho this'll do RAW) and like to use Photoshop CS6 to enhance every image I post. FZ200 images are a joy to edit requiring less work than those from either GH2 or GH3.

I shoot mostly at the max telephoto end of the zoom with subjects being birds and wildlife or boaters out on the lake. The OIS works great even with my old man's shakes and the f2.8 aperture gives me benefit in low light and for depth of field control.

Find out more in dpReview's Compact Panasonic forum where much discussion and real world sample images can be found.
