Meet the Panasonic Lumix TZ200 -- a premium pocket sized camera with a 15x Leica DC Vario zoom lens, electronic viewfinder and a large, 20 megapixel 1-inch type CMOS sensor that provides excellent image quality and low noise even at high sensitivities!
**High speed shooting **
The ultra fast autofocus of the TZ200 uses DFD technology (Depth From Defocus) to track moving subjects and is capable of doing so at up to 6 frames per second. Need even more speed? Use the 4K Photo mode and reach an astonishing 30 fps! Combine that with the cameras electronic shutter that can go up to 1/16 000 s and you can freeze just about any action you want.
More cool features? How about Post Focus, that lets you choose where the focus should be AFTER your photo session. Or Focus Stacking that provides extra depth of field, which is great for macro photography.
The TZ200 weighs in at only 340 grams and easily fits in a jacket pocket or small handbag despite its large zoom range. With both a high resolution electronic viewfinder (2 330K pixels) and a 3" touch screen you can choose whatever provides you with most comfort and ease of use for any given moment and subject.
A small, textured grip provides comfortable handling and an efficient 5-axis image stabilizer makes sure your photos and movies are sharp and clear even when using the telephoto end of the zoom. To facilitate handling when shooting with any of the manual exposure modes of the camera, Panasonic has put a control ring around the base of the lens plus an input dial on the top of the camera. These can be used to set shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, AF mode and much more.
Shoot and share!
If you want to share your masterworks with friends, that can be arranged in the blink of an eye. Bluetooth allows the TZ200 to be continuously connected to a smartphone with a minimum of power consumption. Immidiately after shooting, it automatically switches to Wi-Fi for quick wireless transfer of the data to your phone.
Ideal for travel
With its compact size, 15x zoom lens equivalent to 24-360mm (for full-frame), 5-axis image stabilization, high sensitivity sensor, 4K video, all exposures modes normally found in an advanced system camera and the ability to save images in RAW format, the TZ200 is the ideal travel camera for the demanding photographer.
