Panasonic DMC-FZ200 Lumix Super-Zoom Digital Camera Announced

Panasonic today announced the 12-megapixel LUMIX DMC-FZ200 super-zoom (24x optical zoom) digital camera, featuring a high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 25mm ultra-wide angle lens with full range F2.8 aperture. A newly developed 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and high performance image processing LSI Venus Engine provide the LUMIX FZ200 with high speed response, high sensitivity recording and superb image quality. Light Speed AF (auto focus) combines with the LUMIX FZ200's ability to capture high speed burst shooting at 12 fps (frames per second) in full resolution and a quick start-up time of approximately .95 seconds, so users never miss even the most fleeting shooting opportunities. Furthermore, High Speed Video enables users to record fast-moving subjects at 120 fps (NTSC/HD) or 240 fps (NTSC/VGA).

The LUMIX FZ200's powerful 24x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-600mm) 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. Plus, Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology minimizes light reflection at the entire zoom range (380nm-780nm) resulting in super clear picture with a dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.

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 in the stroke and locating position, smoothing zoom functions. Focus can also be easily changed with this lever, allowing users to concentrate on shutter operation and get the perfect photographic moment.

The LUMIX FZ200's Creative Control mode features 14 filter options including the newly added Soft Focus, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, One Point Color, Cross Process, Low Key, Toy Effect and Star Filter in addition to the conventional Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic and Miniature Effect modes. Photo Style is also available and allows users to create more artistic photographs with Standard, Vivid, Natural, Monochrome, Scenery, Portrait and Custom options.
