Photo Shooting Performance
Power O.I.S. with Active Mode
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. The POWER O.I.S. also works for powerful zoom shots, which are especially susceptible to hand-shake. Active mode is effective for video recording.
The newly added focus made AFF (AF Flexible) locks on the focus when shutter button is half-pressed, however, if the subject moves, the focusing is reset to get the best results.
Creative Control / Creative Retouch
You can add different effects by applying one of the filters both in the recording mode (Creative Control) and the playback mode (Creative Retouch)
The Panorama Shot Mode in the Scene Mode make it possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous image.
Video Recording Performance
24x Optical Zoom in Video Recording
The 24x optical zoom will capture highly natural expressions from people and animals and dynamic sports scenes. The side lever makes it smoother to zoom. Focus can also be charged with this lever, which is convenient in video recording.
High-speed Videos in HD Quality
The DMC-FZ200 records high-speed videos at 120 fps (NTSC / HD)* / 100 fps (PAL / HD)* or 240 fps (NTSC / VGA)* / 200 fps (PAL / VGA)* in MP4 format. You can capture scenes that can't be seen with the naked eye, and play them back in dramataic slow motion.
*The recording format is 30p (NTSC) / 25p (PAL)
Creative Video Mode
The Creatie Video Mode lets you adjust the shutter speed and aperture any way you like when shooting videos.
Incorporating a stereo zoom microphone, the videos also come with high-quality stereo sound of the Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, to offer highly realistic sound to the video. Mechanical noise caused by a zooming oeration is suppressed to improve the clearness.
3.0-inch Free-Angle Monitor
A 3.0-inch 3:" 460K-dot free-angle LCD rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down. This monitor enables dynamic, artistic framing with high-angle shots and low-angle shots. It's convenient when shooting with a tripod too.
iA (Intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode
In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots and capture moments in both photo and video recording. In addition, the iA Plus Mode enables you to adjust defocusing area, exposure compensation and white balance by just moving the slider.
Rich Options for Expandability
For more advanced creative freedom, the DMC-FZ200 is equipeed with a hot shoew allowing attachment of various accessories including an optional stereo microphone (DMW-MS1) or and optional external flash (DMW-FL220 / FL360 / FL500). The DMC-FZ200 is also compatible with an optional remote shutter (DMW-RSL1) for advanced expression in photography.
