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.

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.
* The recording format is 30p.
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.
* Excluding 4K video recording and high-speed video recording.
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.
