Panasonic Lumix TZ200

 

A competent pocket camera. Panasonic Lumix TZ200.

Great zoom range for such a small camera ; Very respectable image quality ; Good-sized, very usable electronic viewfinder ; Considerably improved grip compared to TZ100 ; Effective image stabilisation for low-light shooting

Lacklustre out-of-camera JPEG image quality ; Rear LCD screen doesn’t tilt ; Control layout is poor for viewfinder shooting ; Slow maximum-aperture zoom is noticeably soft at telephoto

The Panasonic Lumix TZ200 is a great pocket camera, which can shoot almost anything pretty competently.

Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 marries a long zoom lens to a premium 1-inch image sensor. It's a very good pocket camera, but we wish the screen offered tilt.

15x zoom power. 20MP 1-inch image sensor. 9.4fps burst capture. Raw image support. Touch LCD. Sharp 4K video. Wi-Fi.

Narrow aperture. EVF on the small side. LCD doesn't tilt. Crop limits wide-angle 4K video capture.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS200

 

When the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100 came out nearly two years ago, it helped define the travel zoom camera. Technically, it's still a point-and-shoot, but it has a fixed zoom lens that produces images you previously could only get from an ILC or DLSR lens.

Panasonic Lumix TZ200 review

 

Don't forget your passport - this camera is going to make you want to travel

Long zoom ; high-resolution viewfinder ; 4K video recording w/ 4K photo mode

Fixed screen ; narrow maximum aperture

Not without its compromises, but the TZ200 is small, neat and not dramatically overpriced. It's quite possibly the best travel camera you can buy

Panasonic Lumix ZS200 Bridge Camera Review: The Traveler's Choice

 

The ZS200's broad selection of features and special settings (particularly its post focus and macro settings) combined with the 1-inch MOS sensor and compact size, make this a very versatile and portable camera. Throw in the powerful 15x optical zoom...

Long optical zoom lens ; Helpful features ; Compact ; Sharp electronic viewfinder and touch-screen LCD ; Quick and easy wireless app setup

No hot shoe for an external flash ; Poorly organized controls and settings ; Rigid LCD

Panasonic's advanced bridge camera is relatively pricey but offers a powerful 15x optical zoom and a large 1-inch image sensor in a compact body, which makes it great for traveling.

The Panasonic Lumix TZ200 offers a 20-megapixel 1inch sensor, plus a large optical zoom with a Leica 15x optical zoom lens while still being reasonably compact and lightweight. It's much smaller in size than bridge cameras such as the FZ1000 which...

Test : Panasonic Lumix TZ200, le compact de voyage expert qui a (presque) tout juste

 

Grand capteur 1 pouce efficace, zoom puissant, viseur électronique, format compact... les forces du TZ200 sont nombreuses. Ses limites ? L'absence d'écran orientable et la volonté de pousser le zoom toujours plus loin.

Capteur 1 pouce performant ; Zoom puissant ; Autofocus ultra réactif ; Viseur électronique ; Réactivité générale

Pas d’écran orientable ; Optique peu lumineuse ; Fort recadrage en vidéo

Intégrer un zoom x15 monté sur un grand capteur un pouce dans un format compact ? Pour Panasonic c'est possible, avec son TZ200 qui profite ainsi des bonnes performances du capteur 1 pouce 20 Mpix et de son savoir-faire en matière de zoom. Le TZ200 est...

zoom puissant, boîtier compact, bonne prise en main, belle qualité d’image, modes Photo4K et PostFocus, vidéo 4K UHD, flash intégré, connexion WiFi et Bluetooth.

faible luminosité du zoom, pas de tropicalisation, pas d’écran orientable, viseur petit, trop de réglages sur l’écran.

Son zoom 15x, son capteur 1" de 20 Mpx et sa prise en main agréable sont les principaux atouts de ce compact de voyage qui offre une belle qualité d'image et un autofocus réactif.
