Digital Camera Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 is a Large Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 12 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 1m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. Framing on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 is performed via a 0.21" Built-in EVF with 1.3 Megapixels. This EVF shows 100% coverage.
