The LUMIX FZ200 is Panasonic's first digital compact camera to offer the incredible advantages of a full range F2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range, a feature usually reserved for very high end professional lenses. The added light collecting ability the F2.8 provides to the FZ200 enables one to capture moving subjects clearly with fast shutter speed, even from a distance. At the heart of this amazing lens is the high-quality of LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT optics.
The LUMIX FZ200's powerful 24x optical zoom can be increased to 48x equivalent with the intelligent zoom function, and takes advantage of intelligent resolution technology to maintain picture quality. The camera's POWER O I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) provides improved correction accuracy to minimize blur, even when zoomed, and active mode effectively suppresses handshake vibration in both still picture and video recording.
The LUMIX FZ200's body has been designed as a full-fledged shooting style digital compact camera with ultimate controllability. The side lever has been redesigned and placed in a convenient location, allowing for smooth zooming control. Focus can also be easily changed with this lever, allowing users to concentrate on shutter operation and get the perfect photographic moment.
With a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and Venus Engine processor, the LUMIX FZ200 ensures top notch quality.
