Product information

Bridging the gap between high-end compacts and digital SLRs, Panasonic's DMC-FZ200 offers a level of control close to that of an SLR, but without the hassle of lens changing and complicated settings. Integrated optical image stabilisation and a sharp electronic viewfinder even take the guesswork out of composing show stopping shots.

Highlights:

  • The DMC-FZ200 is equipped with the world’s first 25-600mm LEICA DC lens featuring a full range f2.8 aperture. Capable of capturing 12.1 megapixels of detail, this precision-engineered lens gives you sharper images and less distortion in conditions ranging from wide-angle shots to macro close-ups.
  • The powerful 24x optical zoom can be used in photo and video recording. This is extendable to a stunning 48x using Pansonic’s ‘Intelligent Zoom’ technology. The lens also features nano surface coating to cut down on ghosts and flaring.
  • The High Sensitivity MOS sensor boasts excellent S/N ratio resulting in super clear image with less noise even during high sensitivity recording. Intelligent noise reduction and multi-process noise reduction combine to reduce noise and render dramatically clear images, even in low light.
  • The DMC-FZ200 has a 0.2-inch electronic viewfinder that features a 1,312,000-dot equivalent high resolution, 100% field of view. Thanks to the increased 30 - 60fps frame rate, screen freeze is reduced, making it suitable for shooting fast-moving subjects.
  • A vibrant 3-inch colour screen lets you review your pictures and compose perfect shots.
  • Power Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) creates sharper images whether you’re shooting or filming. Move into position or shoot off-the-cuff with confidence - the FZ200 always delivers rock solid results.
  • You can also record high quality 1920 x 1080 full HD movies in AVCHD for playback on your HD TV via the mini HDMI connection.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great camera Can be used as fully automatic and manual aperture/shutter speed etc. Very good optical quality of lens, with zoom . Not too heavy to carry about all the time. Very pleased with the photos. Recommended as a step up from a compact for those not wanting the weight and lenses (and cost) of a DSLR. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Camera. After much deliberation , I finally bought an FZ200. Great camera . As previous reviewer stated , the supplied manual & CD advanced features manual are not great. You Tube has many guides by Graham Houghton on the use and features of the camera . He also does a free E book manual online . Totally invaluable . 08 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product bad service I bought this product full of hope that I would be able to use it at once. No handbook supplied for low computer intellect users. No connection cable supplied (and not available from John Lewis either) Certainly not a manufacturer interested in non technical customers. 07 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bridge camera A pleasure to use and great results from rhe few features (of many) that I've managed to use so far - stabilisation works well at maximum optical zoom. Compact and light - really pleased. 02 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by a real camera This camera has an excellent lens so that the pictures are really clear. Can be used fully automatically with great results and the video is also very easy to use. The viewfinder makes it easy to frame your shots and the screen can be closed down when not in use. 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great camera Bought for a safari and got great results. Wanted a better camera than an I phone without lugging round telephoto lenses and it performed beautifully. haven't scratched the surface yet but automatic setting is so easy. Good movies too. Recommended. 11 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning bridge camera I am absolutely delighted with my purchase of a Lumix FZ200 camera. I bought it to take with me on a three week trip to the USA from which I have just returned. I was visiting the canyon lands of Utah and Arizona - an area with its own very particular light, heat and altitude demands and was restricted by weight and size but wanted more adaptability than was available on a simple compact camera. The camera was highly recommended to me by a keen photographer friend and it has thoroughly lived up to his billing. It is small, light, and compact and fits into a small canvas bag that I always take on holiday with me making it an excellent, practical, easy to use travel camera. The lens is wonderful for the size and price of camera and, as I had hoped, meant that I certainly did not need bulky extra lenses to cope with wide angle or zoom. I particularly liked the inclusion of a view finder - vital in the bright light of the Grand Canyon, etc - and the fold out screen on the back which made reviewing my photos as I went along very easy. Initially I was using it at the point and shoot level but as I became more familiar with it, I became aware of the wealth of features more usually found on a more expensive dSLR camera. I am aware that there is a great deal still to learn about its many sophisticated and advanced features and am looking forward to exploring it further. Most highly recommended - the best camera of this sort that I have ever had. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great camera at a fair price! This camera does all it says - takes great photos, both indoors and out. It has an excellent lens which gives pinpoint clarity in photos. The zoom works well and I have taken several great shots of bird life! 19 August 2014
