There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The reviews are quite mixed.. some give it a 5 star rating whilst others are very critical. So I was expecting a decent camera which gets the job done without excelling. Fired off a few shots after waiting a couple of hours for a full battery charge and I could not believe the outstanding photo quality. Now I do have a Canon 7D (with an f 2,8 70-200) plus half a dozen other cameras, so I am not new to digital photography.
Considering such a small sensor, it is hard to see how Panasonic managed to come up with a camera which sets a new benchmark. Most possibly they did strike the right balance between sensor size and pixel density. Having the Leica V Lux 2 aka Panny FZ 100, this camera shines in comparison. Photos are pin sharp, with vibrant colours thanks to the high quality Leica lens. The 2.8 aperture produces great bokeh, placing this camera in uncharted territory for a non dSLR camera.
The lens thread means that polarizer and macro filters can be used, and being a widely used 52mm standard, means that you will be spoilt for choice in finding the right filter which fits your budget.
It is not a first (as many claim) that Panasonic have made a 2.8 fixed aperture bridge camera. I have the DMC FZ-20 for nearly a decade and it is 2.8 throughout its 12X zoom.
Now back to the FZ-200.... Once you have a peep through the EVF there's no turning back. I think that it is one of the best on the market, and you could shoot through a whole day using it to compose your pics... and yes a whole day, considering the long battery life on this camera. I am not here to speak about the specs of this camera, as the fact you are reading this means you are familiar with what this camera can do. What I can say is that the FZ 200 takes awesome photos.
After all what's the use of having a camera which can even do a cappuccino yet lacks the photo quality !! (aka GPS tagging and wifi, which this camera does not have)
If I had to go on holiday I would carry this camera instead of the 7d with 4 different lenses to make up for the 25-600mm, not to mention 2.8 aperture!!. Add a video camera to that...
Is it a worthy upgrade to the FZ100 - Definitely
Is it a worthy upgrade to the FZ150 - It depends whether you really want he bright f 2.8 lens and slow motion capture. IQ is on par IMHO
Noise levels and smearing - I have seen no smearing (as one review site suggests). Noise levels are much less than most reviews suggest. If you're pixel peeping than you can see them even on top end DSLRs. Yet don't get me wrong this is no DSLR, yet its not that far off either. I still carry the 7D for airshows as nothing beats a dSLR for super-fast focusing accuracy and cleanest (noise free) possible photos thanks to larger sensor.
Panasonic have really nailed it with the FZ200:
-Outstanding Image quality.
-Bright Leica F2.8 aperture throughout entire 24X zoom range, producing DSLR style bokeh (Blurred background) ideal for portraits.
-48X iA zoom with minimal loss in quality.
-Stunning EVF with unprecedented 1,300,000 dots resolution,
-Fully Articulated Screen. Comes in very handy when shooting awkward angles, or self portrait.
-Intuitive button placement, with 3 customizable function buttons.
-Zoom rocker on lens barrel comes in very handy when shooting ground level.
-Can shoot 1080p 50fps to high speed video, with up to 200Fps (VGA mp4), yet 100 fps at 720p
-Loads of program modes and special effects in the likes of HDR, Panorama assist, Toy effect, Miniature, Star effect... to mention a few.
-RAW, RAW + Jpeg image capture.
-plus so many other features make this camera a clear "Best Buy".
I hope that this review can help you in choosing your next camera.
Happy shooting :)
