Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Digital Camera Review$599.00
The FZ200 is equipped with a full sized mode dial, including all the "PASM" settings, as well as two custom modes, dedicated modes for scenes and digital effects, plus a manual movie mode.
A cluster of manual and semi-manual controls resides on the left side of the lens barrel. These include the puzzlingly redundant secondary zoom lever, which offers no advantages over the zoom lever surrounding the shutter release, as well as a focus mode switch and dedicated focus button which, again, is made somewhat redundant by the AF/AE Lock button.
21 different shooting resolutions are available, in widely-varying levels of quality and size. JPEG compression may be set to Normal or Fine, and the camera even shoots RAW for the best possible image quality.
