Comprising the essentials needed to begin shooting, the silver Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 Digital Camera with Accessory Kit from B&H bundles the advanced compact camera with an SDHC memory card and a carrying case.

Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 Digital Camera (Silver)

Built with portability in mind, the silver Lumix DC-ZS200 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a sleek point-and-shoot camera with notable photo and video capabilities. Despite its compact size at only 4.4" in width, the camera manages to incorporate a large 1" High-Sensitivity MOS sensor and a Leica 15x optical zoom lens for shooting high quality 20.1MP photos. Complementing the sensor is a Venus Engine image processor capable of UHD 4K video recording at up to 30 fps and with an extended ISO of 25600 for use in low-light situations.

The Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens incorporated in this camera has a 24-360mm equivalent focal length range that can cover a wide variety of situations. In the video department, a High-Speed mode allows the ZS200 to record Full HD 120 fps footage and play it back at 30 fps, resulting in instant slow motion video. Also available is a 4K Photo Mode that uses the camera's video capabilities to generate 8 MP pictures at 30 fps; regular burst shooting at higher resolutions can reach 10 fps in AF-S and 6 fps in AF-C, thanks to a fast depth-from-defocus (DFD) focusing system. Finally, a 5-axis Hybrid O.I.S image stabilization system is present in all modes except for 4K and high-speed video recording, and helps minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imaging.

The ZS200 is also characterized by its intuitive physical design, with both an electronic viewfinder and a rear LCD screen available. The Live View Finder is a 0.21" 2330k-Dot EVF that allows for comfortable eye-level monitoring, while the large 3.0" 1240k-dot LCD touchscreen is best-suited for image review, menu navigation, and live view shooting. Additional features include in-camera raw file processing, L-monochrome mode for black and white pictures, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

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 10 fps with single-shot AF, 6 fps with continuous AF, or 30 fps at 8MP in the 4K Photo burst mode.
Leica DC Vario-Elmar 15x Zoom Lens
A long-reaching 15x Leica DC Vario-Elmar zoom offers a 24-360mm equivalent focal length range along with a maximum aperture range of f/3.3-6.4. The lens construction incorporates three ED elements, five aspherical elements, and one aspherical ED lens 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 Mb/s. 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.
Live View Finder and Rear LCD Touchscreen
A Live View Finder (LVF) is integrated into the sleek body design to permit comfortable eye-level monitoring. This 0.21" electronic viewfinder has a 2330k-dot resolution and covers 100% of the image frame while shooting.

Alternatively, a rear 3.0" 1240k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor is also available for live view shooting, image review, and intuitive menu navigation. Intuitive touch controls allow you to set focus on the subject simply by touching the screen, as well as release the shutter.
Other Features
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allows you to wirelessly send photos and movies to linked smartphones and tablets for direct sharing online.
  • 4K Photo Auto Marking automatically detects motion on a subject's face and sets a marker, allowing you to quickly skip to that sequence when selecting shots.
  • L.Monochrome mode in Photo Style simulates black and white film, creating impressive monochrome pictures with deep blacks and rich gradations.
  • In-camera raw file processing is possible, allowing you to adjust color space, white balance, exposure compensation, highlights/shadows, saturation, noise reduction, sharpness, and many other settings.
  • The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides you with 370 shots per charge when working with the rear LCD, or 350 pictures with the electronic viewfinder when set to the eco30fps setting.

Panasonic DC-ZS200 Reviews

Top-notch travel camera

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-20

I have owned several previous Panasonic Lumix compact travel cameras, the last being the DC-ZS100. They have been excellent for what I use them for, namely, a means of shooting quality images with the convenience of a small, lightweight camera that fits in a small case and attaches to the shoulder strap of my backpack while hiking, making it instantly accessible. Versatility, customization options, RAW capability, and image quality, not to mention the increased zoom range from 24mm to 360, make this latest model a no brainer for me. The time-lapse feature is nice as well for capturing clouds and their shadows moving across the landscape. If you're an avid hiker who hates lugging heavy, bulky camera equipment on your treks but wishes for better options than a smart phone, this is your ticket.

Difficult to Use

This camera got great reviews but the user manual is very difficult to follow. If you want to take good pictures, you will have to learn to shoot in manual.

Small but packs a punch!

I bought this to be a second camera because I can no longer carry a second set of gear with my mirrorless equipment. It is slightly larger than most compacts, but not much, and is amazing for the price! All of the usual camera settings are there, easy to access, and you can shoot in raw!

Similar to ZS or TZ 100

The main advantage is the extended zoom ( +36%) The disadvantage is the max f/4, the other is 2.8 The other features are mostly similar in both models. Leica optics is excellent.

Amazing alternative to full size SLR camera for traveling

After lost of research I decided to give this Lumix a try. What a great find! I carry a full frame Nikon on my travels, which can be cumbersome. I added this little marvel that gives me lots of control and great resolution in a small package, when I need to leave my camera bag behind, but want to have the option to capture images in restaurants, streets, music festivals, etc. Highly recommended!

Great Travel Camera!

After a recent trip abroad lugging my Canon M50 mirrorless coupled with a 25-250mm zoom I made the decision to downsize to an advanced point and shoot. My sights initially were on the Leica D-Lux but upon further review I learned that the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 is virtually the same camera. The only difference is the red Leica emblem on the front of the camera is replaced with 'Lumix' and the Lumix is significantly less $$ than the Leica. No brainer! I love the Lumix DC-ZS200. It has excellent features similar to my M50 and I really like how the front control ring can be configured to adjust aperture, zoom, etc. The focal length is incredible for this size camera and the images are crisp all around. The viewfinder, for me wearing glasses when I shoot, takes a bit getting used to. I do like that it's offset to the left of the screen because my schnoz doesn't leave an imprint on the screen! I'm really looking forward to traveling with this camera - it'll be easier to pack and carry. BTW I recommend MegaGear's leather case (also purchased from B&H) that's specifically for this Lumix. Great protection, easy to access the camera and best of all looks classy and retro. To top it off B&H is the best for service and selection! I give them 6 Stars!

A reasonable option

This replaced my long-time utility camera and has all the same features I had come to rely on, from portability to excellent zoom optically to 360, and not bad zoom to 720 digitally. To my inexpert eye, the move away from the Zeiss lens is a distinct downgrade in tone, producing a harsher image. The 'free' pouch that came with it is too tight a fit, and can only take a spare Sandisk, not also a spare battery. No biggy but...

Just received ! Great buy

I've had several SLRs and DSLRs but was looking for a fixed lens with reasonable number of features and a solid zoom. I travel a lot and got tired of 'packing extras lenses'. I am NOT a professional photographer but an enthusiast. This camera fits the bill very well and at a good price. Not minor note, if you travel especially overseas, the lack of a GPS feature is the camera is a bit of a disappointment. However, here again Panasonic does include in the manual a 'work around' using your phone.
