LUMIX by Panasonic is favored by camera enthusiasts because of its high reliability, Leica DC Lenses and the unique, streetwise creative technologies they deliver. The LUMIX ZS200 includes a 24mm ultra wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens offers a powerful 15X optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-360mm) and 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) to provide a versatile angle of view while suppressing hand-shake in both photo and video recording. It also enables stunning macro shots as close as 3cm. For even more creative photography, the LUMIX ZS200 integrates a new L.Monochrome mode in Photo Style, to create an impressive monochrome image with rich gradation like that of black-and-white film.
Adoption of a large 1-inch MOS sensor enables high-quality image recording with stunning details. The combination of a High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and LUMIX Venus Engine achieves maximum ISO 12,800 high-sensitivity recording with stunning image quality that exceeds the limits of ordinary digital compact cameras.
Large 1-inch 20.1MP Sensor
Good low light performance comes from larger sensors. The LUMIX ZS200 features a High-sensitivity 1-inch 20.1 Megapixel MOS sensor capable of 12800 ISO for excellent low-light performance.
LEICA DC Lens
Great lenses make great cameras. The LUMIX ZS200 features a superb 15X LEICA DC Vario-Elmar Lens that covers every scene from wide to telephoto (35mm camera equivalent: 24-360mm). To suppress hand shake, the lens features 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ in both photo and video recording.
Live View Finder
Excellent viewing clarity even in bright light comes from a 0.21-inch 2,330K-dot equiv Live View Finder. This LVF features a high magnification ratio of approximately 1.45x / 0.53x (35mm camera equivalent).
Venus Engine Processor
The LUMIX ZS200 Venus Engine enables the high-quality image capture and high-speed signal processing required for 4K video recording. Enjoy superior noise reduction and high ISO while shooting at max. ISO12800 / Extended ISO25600 with dramatically improved sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and color reproduction.
Extended Battery Life
Enjoy long battery life with approximately 1.23 times* the previous ZS100 battery life with the rear monitor and approximately 1.35 times* the ZS100 with the LVF eco 30fps setting to shoot without hesitation while traveling.
- Rear Monitor: Approximately 370 images
- LVF: Approximately 250 images
- LVF eco30fps setting: Approximately 350 images
4K PHOTO Sequence Composition
Catch the trajectory of a dynamic action in a single photo. Then simply choose the frames that you want from the 4K PHOTO file to compose an action-packed shot.
4K PHOTO Auto Marking
Whether it's a bird taking flight, a balloon bursting or a person glancing backward, the camera detects the motion or your subject's face and automatically sets a marker. When selecting shots, you can quickly skip to that sequence.
High Speed Video in FHD
Record high-speed videos at 100fps in FHD quality. Capture scenes that can't be seen with the naked eye, and play them back in dramatic slow motion.
5-Axis Correction / Tilt Correction
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) detects and compensates for the camera’s 5 types of movement to suppress blurring. The Level Shot Function detects the image's horizontal line and maintains it even if the camera is tilted.
Intuitive Touch Control
The rear monitor with a high resolution of approximately 1,240k-dot features higher visibility even for sunny outdoor shooting. Plus, a touch control immediately lets you set focus on the subject just by touching it on the screen, and you can even release the shutter.
Ultra High-Speed Focusing
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultra-high-speed AF and 6 fps burst shooting with AFC. 10 fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.
L. Monochrome in the Photo Style creates impressive monochrome pictures with deep blacks and rich gradations like that of a B/W film.
RAW Data Development In-Camera
The LUMIX ZS200 can shoot images in RAW-format and even develop them inside the camera to adjust the following settings: Color Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, Contrast, Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, Noise Reduction, Intelligent Resolution and Sharpness.

|*1||Recording conditions by CIPA standard
- Temperature: 23oC (73.4oF) / Humidity: 50%RH when monitor is on.
- Using a Panasonic SDHC Memory Card
- Using the supplied battery.
- Starting recording 30 seconds after the camera is turned on. (When the optical image stabilizer function is set to [ON].)
- Recording once every 30 seconds with full flash every second recording.
- Rotating the zoom lever from Tele to Wide or vice versa in every recording.
- The number of recordable pictures varies depending on the recording interval time.
- If the recording interval time becomes longer, the number of recordable pictures decreases.
- CIPA is an abbreviation of [Camera & Imaging Products Association].
|*2||- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures.
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] [High Speed Video] or [4K PHOTO].
(SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
- Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 29 minutes and 59 seconds with [AVCHD] in [FHD/60p] [FHD/60i].
- Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 15 minutes with [MP4] in [4K].
- When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB,
but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- When using an SDXC memory card: You can record a motion picture in a single file.
- Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 29 minutes and 59 seconds with [MP4] in [FHD/60p] and [High Speed Video].
You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB,
but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD/30p] [HD]: You can continue recording without interruption
even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- These are standard times taken at a temperature of 23 oC (73.4 oF) and a humidity of 50%RH.
- The time available for recording varies depending on the environment, the interval between recordings, and the manner of use.
- Actual recordable time is the time available for recording when repeating actions such as switching the power supply [ON] / [OFF], starting/stopping recording, zoom operation etc.
