The DMC-FZ200 is one of the latest digital cameras in Panasonic's FZ series. The spotlight shines on the camera's ability to capture 12 frames-per-second, as well as a start-up time of less than a second; making the LUMIX FZ200 the perfect camera for shooting live events like a football game or really anything with lots of action. This is partly due to the 12.1-Megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor that uses a redesigned Venus Engine for processing both video and stills at high speeds.
In addition to a high volume of photos per second, the Panasonic FZ200 can record high speed video at a sensor output of 100 fps in 720p as well as a sensor output of 200fps at 640 by 480 resolution. It can also record 1080p video in the standard video mode. Along with a 24x optical zoom, the camera comes equipped with a crisp, 1.3M dot electronic viewfinder and a 3-inch, 460K dot LCD on the back of the camera. In addition to JPEG, the camera also offers the option of shooting in the RAW format.
