Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 Digital Camera (Black)

Built with travel in mind, the black Lumix DMC-ZS100 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a versatile point-and-shoot marrying both form and function. Designed to be as sleek as possible, the ZS100 still manages to incorporate a large 1-inch 20.1MP High-Sensitivity MOS sensor and 10x optical zoom lens. The sensor pairs with a Venus Engine image processor to realize clear, clean image quality with low noise and high sensitivity to an expanded ISO 25600. This processor and sensor also permit quick continuous shooting, up to 50 fps with an electronic shutter or 10 fps with a mechanical shutter, as well as 4K UHD video recording at 30p and 24p frame rates. The 4K capabilities are extended to stills applications, too, and allow for 30 fps shooting at 8MP as well as the ability to use Post Focus for choosing your specific point of focus after shooting. Complementing these imaging attributes is a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens, which provides a 25-250mm equivalent focal length range, along with 5-axis Hybrid O.I.S. to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Featuring more than your average pocket-sized point-and-shoot, the ZS100 is a capable camera for photographers and videographers on the move.

Equally as important as the stills and video components, the ZS100 is also characterized by its intuitive physical design and inclusion of both an electronic viewfinder and rear LCD screen. The Live View Finder is a 1166k-dot EVF that affords comfortable eye-level monitoring, and is especially well-suited to working in bright conditions. Contrasting this is the large rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen, which is best-suited for clear image review, menu navigation, and live view shooting. The camera body is also accentuated by a range of manual control dials, such as a lens-surrounding configurable control ring for direct control over zoom, focus, or exposure settings. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi allows you to pair the ZS100 with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing and remote camera control via the Panasonic Image app.

20.1MP 1" MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
A large 1" 20.1MP High-Sensitivity MOS sensor pairs with a Venus Engine image processor to realize rich image quality with reduced noise and high sensitivity to an expanded ISO 25600. The sensor and processor combination also avails continuous shooting rates of 50 fps when working with the electronic shutter, 10 fps with a mechanical shutter and single-shot AF, 6 fps with continuous AF, or 30 fps at 8MP in the 4K Photo modes.
Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 10x Zoom Lens
A long-reaching 10x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit zoom offers a 25-250mm equivalent focal length range along with a maximum aperture range of f/2.8-5.9. The lens construction incorporates five double-sided aspherical elements to minimize spherical aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range for increased image clarity and sharpness.

Benefitting the reach of the lens is a powerful 5-axis Hybrid O.I.S. system that compensates for a variety of camera movements for sharper handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. This image stabilization system also enables a unique Level Shot function that automatically detects the horizontal line of the recording image and keeps it level during shooting, regardless of camera tilt, helping to achieve greater shooting stability.
4K Video and Photo Modes
The sensor and processor combination also enables 4K video recording at both 30p and 24p frame rates in the MP4 format at 100 Mbps. Full HD 1080p and HD 720p recording is also possible, as well as high-speed Full HD recording with 120 fps slow-motion playback.
 

  • Besides video, the 4K capabilities also permit recording 8MP stills at 30 fps in a trio of ways:
  • 4K Burst: Just as with video recording, this mode will allow you to continuously record 8MP images at 30 fps for up to 15 minutes, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • 4K Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record 8MP images at 30 fps one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • 4K Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the 4K video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8MP frame.
Post Focus and Light Speed AF
Another attribute of the 4K capabilities is a unique focusing method called Post Focus. Working in conjunction with the 49-area contrast-detection focusing system, called Light Speed AF, and the intelligent Depth from Defocus (DFD) technology, Post Focus records imagery as a 4K MP4 file at 30 fps and shifts the specific point of focus throughout the burst shooting in order to offer a range of distinct focusing ranges to choose from. During playback, via the camera's touchscreen, you can then tap the specific region of the image you wish to be in focus and an 8MP JPEG file will be created. Multiple individual files with different points of focus can be created from the original burst, and focusing assist functions can also be used to gain even more precise control over the specific in-focus region.

The DFD technology also provides quick focusing performance when working in low-light conditions via the Starlight AF feature, which is specifically tuned to acquiring accurate focus during nighttime shooting.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • A Live View Finder (LVF) is integrated into the sleek body design to permit comfortable eye-level monitoring. This electronic viewfinder has a 1,166k-dot resolution and covers 100% of the image frame while shooting.
  • Alternatively, a rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD monitor is also available for live view shooting, image review, and intuitive menu navigation.
  • A host of manual controls offer simple, direct control over a variety of oft-used camera settings, including a control ring surrounding the lens that can be configured to adjust zoom, shutter speed, manual focus, and ISO sensitivity.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly share photos and movies to linked smartphones and tablets for direct sharing online. A QR code system of pairing makes it simple to link mobile devices and, once paired, the device can also be used to remotely control the camera via the Panasonic Image app.
Other Camera Features
  • Light Composition is a dedicated processing mode that selects and recovers information from brighter regions in the image in order to produce more dramatic, yet controlled imagery in high-contrast situations, such as when photographing fireworks or nighttime scenery.
  • 4K Live Cropping is dedicated to UHD video recording and allows the recording frame to move while the camera retains a fixed position in order to provide greater stability when panning or zoom during recording.
  • In-camera raw file processing is possible, allowing you to adjust color space (Adobe RGB/sRGB), white balance, exposure compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, contrast, highlight/shadow values, saturation, noise reduction, Intelligent Resolution, and sharpness.
  • The Light Speed AF and DFD systems afford precise face- and eye-tracking for maintaining critical focus on moving subjects.
  • Focus peaking is available for easier, more accurate manual focusing control.
  • The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides you with 300 shots per charge when working with the rear LCD or 240 shots per charge with the electronic viewfinder.
  • Wide Panorama lets you generate panoramic images in-camera by simply panning about the scene to record a broad field of view.
  • Creative Control modes: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color, and Sunshine.

  • Photo Style modes: Standard, Vivid, Natural, Monochrome, Scenery, Portrait, and Custom, as well as Cinelike D and Cinelike V when Creative Video mode is selected.
  • Picture Adjustment settings: Contrast, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, Saturation, Color Tone, and Filter Effect.

Panasonic DMC-ZS100 Reviews

Great small travel point and shoot camera

By Rhina
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-23

I am very happy with my purchase. The Panasonic Lumix ZS-100 is a small and easy to use point & shoot travel camera. I like that it has a digital view finder. I wish it would have a better grip to hold. I am planning on using a strap all the time as the camera is small and easy to drop. Great price for this type of cameras. I bought from B&H as their customer service was excellent. Prior to buying this camera, I returned another camera that was not right for me, and the return process was excellent. That is the reason I went back to B&H to buy this camera.

I really wanted to like this camera

I purchased this camera for work and for travel and use it heavily. I try real hard to get good pictures from it but just can't. I use it mainly to shoot interiors and exteriors of homes. Due to the inconsistent quality, I have given up using it for travel. Auto focus is iffy with about 25% of the interior shots slightly out of focus. Metering is wildly inconsistent, particularly if there is any back lighting. I have tried spot metering, matrix metering, center weighted and nothing improves it. I have used Ai setting, and Aperture priority with the same result. It is handy to carry around and seems to be well built, but image quality is no better than my i phone. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I would not risk taking it on trips due to the inconsistent quality of the images.

A real high quality camera you can always take with you when you can't carry a full size one, once you go into the menu and turn off features that degrade the images you will be impressed with how sharp and crisp your photo's will be. I went into the menu and turned off the noise reduction, minus 5, sharpness +5, contrast +5, color saturation +1. the photo's here were taken at 250mm you can see the crispness of the images, also the eye level finder makes the manual focusing easy when outside in the sun with the peaking function turned on.

Screen turns off & function buttons too easily pressed

Date: 2022-09-05

I bought this in hopes of replacing an older Panasonic camera, but I have returned to using the older camera. Several times, I accidentally pressed a function button while trying to do something else. I also had difficulty with the screen turning off when I was shooting in tight spaces and dim light. When everything went well, the camera is very good but all too often something went wrong. I read some suggestions online, but none of them solved screen turning off problem. It seems to only happen when the lighting is dim and I am holding the camera at unusual angles or in tight places, but unfortunately for me that happened too often.

Asked by: Harvey
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 Digital Camera (Black) (B&H# PADMCZS100B) has image quality that is comparable to the best among other cameras with a 1" sensor. However, its 25-250mm lens allows it to outclass other such cameras of its type and price category when it comes to its ability to capture detail in objects that are far away. The autofocus system is best suited for subjects that are not moving toward nor away from the camera speedily.
