This camera is a beast! There's no other way to describe it. For all those out there looking for a high-quality shooter, but don't want to lug around a DSLR - or pay for one, here is your camera. I am amazed at the quality and versatility that Panasonic has created here. All for $299 and it's a steal! Outfitted with an f2.8 Leica lens with 24x optical zoom (35-600mm), this light (1.29lbs) shooter delivers excellent results. Take a look at the zoom capabilities in the video below.
Surprisingly, with image stabilization on, you can shoot very sharp images without a tripod. On top of this, the FZ200 also shoots full 1080p HD video, opening up a world of creative opportunities. Those new to photography will be able to take great pictures right out of the box. The automatic settings allow anyone to just start snapping. Those who are accustomed to more manual options will not be disappointed either. There are plenty of menus and options to get lost in. You have all the manual settings you'd expect to find on a high-end DSLR allowing infinite adjustments.
Perfect for the weekend shooter and an excellent piece of kit for your next vacation. Everyone will be stunned by the quality of images and ease of use of the Panasonic DMC-FZ200.
