Special offer

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.


  • 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

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Bridge Camera, HD 1080p, 12.1MP, 24x Optical Zoom, 3" LCD Flip Screen, Black 5 5 14 14
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
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
great camera Have had the Lumix for a few weeks now and have not been disappointed with any aspects of the camera. Great product. 19 August 2014
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Bridge Camera, Bought the FZ200 to replace a Fuji X-S1 which was stolen during a burglary.. The specifications of the two cameras are very similar, except that the FZ200 has the great advantage of a faster lens with a constant 2.8 aperture from 25 to 600 mm focal length, I like taking bird photos and have used several cameras with 10 to 26x zoom - the bright lens of the Panasonic allows fast shutter speeds/lower ISO settings to give sharp images. Degree of customisation for saved settings is very good, and there are several buttons for quick access to ISO, focusing mode, White Balance, etc. Early days, but I haven't found any shortcomings so far, and the image quality in reasonable light compares well with my Nikon DSLR. Video is supposed to be very good, but I haven't tried it yet. Recommend the User's Manual produced by Graham Houghton and its worth watching some of his videos.. (Links in the manual or search on YouTube). 05 August 2014
Lumix FZ200 must hav bridge camera Does all a large bulky camera can do without the need for extra lenses. Easy to carry and superb definition. More than complex enough for the serious photographer and easy auto set for the amateur. 24X adequate for most and can do digitally enhanced to 48x without definition loss for A4 printing. Tele zoom whilst shooting movies a boon as can do at max 2.8 aperture which few cameras appear able to do. 14 May 2014
FZ 200 Camera Just love it. Fits my hand just as I like. Still getting to grip with all of the modes. have one gripe however in-sofar as opening the flip screen which could be easier.;maybe I have yet to find the best technique. 29 April 2014
Bridge camera Having purchased this camera for my husband for Christmas, and seeing what excellent photos it produced I decided to treat myself as well. Absolutely brilliant reproduction and so easy to move around all the features 12 March 2014
Excellent Camera I purchased the FZ200 after Christmas. I migrated from using a Lumix compact camera TZ8. I wanted to explore the manual settings using a more powerful camera with further scope. The FZ200 camera is absolutely amazing, the aperture pf f2.8 allows one to capture scenes in motion and scenes in low light, the optical zoom lens gives crisp and well detailed images. In conclusion an excellent bridge camera, probably better than many entry DSLR cameras 07 March 2014
