The lens is not as sharp as I expected. I understand that in putting such a huge zoom lens in this camera that there would be some compromises. Unfortunately, a loss of sharpness is not one that I can abide. If you don't intend to enlarge your photos you should be fine. However if you crop your photos there just isn't much sharpness to work with. I'm sure things would be much sharper with a tripod support, however, for a walk around travel camera who really wants to burden themselves with extra gear? I know this makes me a lazy photographer. However, I have lugged full-frame cameras with huge telephotos and a bag of lenses and flashes all over the place and back and let me tell you, a small camera like this with all its features is a joy. Still, I want a sharp lens.
The lens is too slow for me. While perfectly adequate for static subjects like landscapes or achitecture, you will tear out your hair trying to stop even the most gentle motion. Either you crank up the ISO and suffer increased noise or you can slow the shutter and tempt camera shake.
The viewfinder is very low contrast and seems hazy. Physically, it is clean. However, it just looks hazy and washed out. It is certainly usable, but the poor image quality is annoying. If you have ever used an old-style rangefinder camera with a fingerprint smeared up front glass, it looks just like that.
The battery life is good, a bit better than I expected. Also the camera gives several options for working with reduced power so your mileage might go up by 20% or so from usual. Also, you can charge the battery in the camera. Very nice for travel as you can use the same charger for phone (in most cases) as the camera and have less gear to pack.
The menus are very complete and not too disorganized.
The 4K modes are astonishingly useful and the focus stacking can help you get a usable photo in a difficult situation. This camera lets you exercise your creativity with so many modes and options. Or, if you want simple, just put it in iA mode and let the camera do the work.
The camera is made in China. (Just like the RX100VI)
The wireless features work as expected with my Android phone. Bluetooth location tagging is top notch for travel. On the down side, there is NO airplane mode. You have to wade through the menus and turn all the radios off if you need to go dark.
No "Delete First" option when viewing photos. You always have to press a button to confirm you want to delete. The extra step annoys me especially because I am so used to having this available with Nikon and Sony cameras.
The touch screen is what everybody seems to clamor for these days. I'll say it works as it is supposed to. Unfortunately I grew so tired of touching the screen inadvertently and having annoying things pop up that required attention that I just turned the darn thing off.
Be prepared to read the manual. Even if you consider yourself a photography whiz this camera can baffle you right out of the gate. For example, if the monitor does not work you may have inadvertently pushed the LVF button. Press it a few times to cycle through the options and bring things back to life. Also, what does LVF mean anyway? I finally figured out it means "Live View Finder". It's buried in the big manual online. Just like other things such as "Starlight Mode" and others. The camera has vast capabilites but they are not all laid out in a linear easy to grasp fashion. You have to practically stumble onto each one and then grope for understanding in the manual. Various bizarre icons drove me nuts trying to look them up when they pop up. Stay strong, persevere and you will catch on to it all. (Or, just go to iA mode and wrack your brain some other day.)
I don't like where the movie button is. I keep pressing it to turn on the camera. Perhaps I should say instead that I hate how long it takes me to break old habits but still, that's where the power button should be in my opinion. Generally speaking, all the buttons should be larger and a little bit easier to press. After an all day session with the camera my button pushing finger was pretty sore. On the contrary, the large lens ring is way too easy to turn. This makes it pretty much useless as it takes nothing to bump it and change a setting.
I've made some negative comments but I do find this an acceptable camera for the right user, namely, casual photographers who will not be overly critical of the picture quality and who want the many travel-oriented features.
Drawbacks—the ZS200 is not weatherproofed and the aperture does get small at the high zoom positions, limiting light capture. No camera met all my criteria! This was the best compromise.
Note: It seems that when you pair your phone or ipad w the camera, you should put the camera in playback mode. Otherwise for me the pairing failed.
I was looking for a small travel camera with ample zoom and easy one-handed operation. If I can't manage the camera in my hand ve then I'm not going to get a good picture! My previous Canon G9X Mark I was small and convenient but its microphone crapped out so my videos were useless. For my next camera I wanted to move up in image quality and have 4K video capability (just in case). I tried handling the Sony RX100v and the Canon G7X Mark I but they were tangibly more difficult for me to manage one-handed than the ZS200. The new grip on the ZS200 makes it much easier to handle than the ZS100.
I'm still taking test pictures and fiddling with the controls. I have bluetooth and WiFi setup so my iPhone Lumix app allows for geotagging of every picture and I can review and download pictures to my phone. The ZS200 camera is powerful & complicated. The fully-automatic "Intelligent Auto Mode" does not produce ideal results, often taking pictures with high ISO. This camera really requires a better understanding of and use of its manual controls, e.g. aperture priority and shutter priority. Read the docs and read the DPreview forums for further advice and answers to complicated questions. Many consumer electronics these days are as complicated as computers -- I don't think it's fair to expect generic Panasonic technical support to understand every advanced camera control, just like I wouldn't expect Sony technical support to understand every Android TV setting.
The ZS200 is a compromise: it has an aperture range of 3.3-6.4 so low-light photos are little more of a challenge, but the size and weight are appealing – large enough to make buttons and dials easy to use, but small enough to be unobtrusive at an event or on the street. The zoom is 24-360mm (35mm equivalence), an astonishing range in such a little camera. The 1” sensor and stabilization make sharp photos (a little soft at full zoom). The image quality is very good with everything I’ve tested: full zoom in good light outdoors, macro, action with continuous focus, color testing with cool lights and warm lights, hand-held at 1600 ISO indoors (I try not to go above 1600 but 3200 is still acceptable). I can turn it on, focus in, and take a good shot in about 5 seconds, and that's with me being careful about lining up shots.
The image stabilization is everything I wanted it to be. I loved some of the results I got with a prime lens f/1.8 50mm on the Canon SL2, but it was hard work and lots of blurred images, since the Canon had no image stabilization in the camera or the lens. With the ZS200, I like my no-flash, no-work, handheld museum pictures.
I'm impressed with the video, especially the 4k. It crops the shot so you may need to pan slowly to get a wider view, and I suggest using a tripod if possible. The slow motion works well.
I like: the 1” sensor; the tilting built-in flash for bouncing the light; touchscreen menu and touch focus; 5-axis image stabilization; good size and weight to have it with me all the time; easy customization; the zoom range; the styling and placement of the controls; focus peaking; 49 autofocus points are plenty; the good battery life; the cost compared with an interchangeable lens camera.
I don’t like: the Panasonic app, which is clunky; the fixed screen; the widest aperture is 3.3; it isn’t weather sealed; there’s no hot shoe; the lens ring turns too easily in my opinion; the grip could be deeper and more grippy.
Note: I returned the camera because the shutter delay timer didn't work and there were some glitches with the touchscreen. I'm getting a ZS100, since I've seen other reviews that say the build quality is sometimes unreliable on the ZS200. But regardless of my luck, if you get a good one, I think you'll like it a lot.
