That's where this Panasonic fits in. I've been looking for a pocketable travel camera that can bridge the gap between an iPhone 6 and my Nikon DSLRs. My requirements were as follows: small camera body, attached lens (so it can be used at concerts), 1" sensor, and a generous zoom range.
What's so important about the sensor size? A camera with a larger 1" sensor is able to capture more photo detail with less noise than the usual 2/3" size. This is most noticeable when taking photos in low light. The Sony RX 100 III and Canon G7x are the benchmarks for the 1" sensor cameras, but I needed a longer zoom in order to shoot concerts, and sports. As far as I can tell, the Panasonic is unique in this price range for the combination of the 1" sensor and longer-than-the-competition zoom.
* Solid Feel
* standard micro-USB cable
* Larger 1" sensor (larger than the majority of point-and-shoot models)
* Longest zoom in this price range amongst its peers
* RAW+JPG option
* 4K Video
* Electronic Viewfinder
* physical lens-ring control
* thumb-wheel control
* Smartphone integration (I can only test the iPhone app) - Live real-time camera controls, transfer photos and videos, GPS tagging
* Fast menus
* Fast focus
* Custom White Balance
* Full manual controls
* Customizable Dials
* Create features such as Post Focus and 4K Photo
Dislikes: (these are really first-world problems)
* no flash hot shoe (but its competitors may not have one either)
* no external microphone option (but its competitors may not have one either)
* It barely fits in my front-jeans pocket. I have to be careful not to scratch it with the metal rivet on the jeans
Panasonic has this very interesting feature called Post Focus. The camera will rapid fire a series of shots using different focal points and let the user choose what to focus on AFTER the picture has been taken. Another unique feature is 4K Photo, the camera will basically take 4K video and let you extract high-quality 4K stills from the stream. I can see this being extremely useful with fast moving kids and pets.
I plan to add more to this review in the future...but for now, I've attached some photos samples. I've also included a size comparison between the iPhone 6 and Panasonic. As well as low-light comparison shots between the iPhone 6 and Panasonic in a poorly lit room. All shots including the low-light shots were hand-held without a tripod.
So far, every camera feature appears to work as advertised. There were comments on another website about wifi problems, I had none. The wireless bridge between the camera and iPhone worked every time. Note: I do have a dual-band router and although the 2.4Ghz channel was found, the 5Ghz was not. That may be why it didn't matter in my place.
Now for the problem: Having the camera for a month, I suddenly received a "System Error Zoom" message. When the camera is turned on, the lens comes out and then automatically retracts into the camera (hence the three stars).
BEWARE of the Panasonic warranty. Panasonic had my camera from June 2nd until now without notifying me at all of the status. When I called both the 956 and toll free numbers and tried to get to repairs, I received the "This number is no longer in service" message. When I finally was able to talk to a human, he emailed me photos of my camera with a small dent on top. He said that the engineer claimed that there was physical damage, the warranty was void, and that I would have to pay $247 to fix it. That camera was never hit or dropped by me which makes me wonder what was going on with it in the 20 days Panasonic had it. If you have some concern that you might have to pay out-of-pocket even if under warranty, then don't buy Panasonic.
The ZS100 could be an ideal camera as long as you do not have a problem that has to be fixed by Panasonic.
This has way more capabilities that I will ever need. I bought an ebook that is excellent to supplement the one you download from Lumix.
I would have liked a tilt screen but for the few times I would have actually used it the size savings is a better decision.
Easy to learn what you need to make great pictures and powerful options if you are so inclined.
The biggest difference between this camera and less expensive ones is the size of the sensor. In lower light I am able to get surprisingly great pictures that are not possible otherwise. Would buy again right away if it was lost or destroyed.
I took the dive, got the camera, and tested in various settings, comparing the pics with those taken by zs40 and a6500 in those settings. The improvements relative to ZS40 were quite impressive + the features, interface, etc. all make the ZS100, at least for me, the perfect travel / family party camera.
