CCD), 26x wide-angle optical zoom (22.5-585mm equiv.), Optical Image Stabilization, 3.0-in. LCD (921k-dot), P, Easy AUTO, Scene Modes, Smart Portrait System, 3D still image photography, and 720p HD Movie 1280×720 @ 30fps with stereo sound.
Imaging Resource has published their review of the Nikon Coolpix P510, an ultra zoom digital camera with 16.1MP resolution (1/2.3-in. CMOS), 42x ultra wide-angle optical zoom (24-1000mm equiv.), 3.0-in. Vari-angle LCD (921k-dot), Optical Image Stabilization, PASM, Scene Modes, Continuous Shooting 5fps, Easy Panorama (seamless 180° or 360° image), built-in GPS and geotagging features, and Full HD 1080p video 1920×1080 @ 30fps with stereo sound.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 is Panasonic’s top-of-the-line super zoom camera. It features 12.1MP resolution (1/2.3-inch High Sensitivity MOS sensor), a 24x ultra wide-angle optical zoom (25-600mm equiv.), a 3.0-in. (460k-dot) Free-angle LCD, Continuous Shooting at 12fps, and Full HD Movie 1920 x 1080/60p. Point-and-Shoot users will choose to leave the camera on Intelligent AUTO mode while beginners and more advanced users have access to all the semi-auto and manual modes with PASM shooting modes and RAW file format.
The 24x optical zoom lens is a Leica DC starting at an ultra wide angle 25mm (equiv.), perfect for taking group shots or wide vistas. The tele ends at 600mm (equiv.) and built-in optical image stabilization helps stabilize the camera at the long focal lengths.
The impressive feature of the FZ200 is the F2.8 aperture that is available throughout the full range, even at 600 mm, which should help tremendously with being able to use a fast shutter speed — and hence prevent camera shake — at the long focal lengths. The FZ200 also features optical image stabilization to help further reduce camera shake when using slow shutter speeds.
Get creative with Creative Control, Photo Style, and 3D Photo Mode. Continuous Shooting is 12fps at full resolution, 5.5fps/2fps with AF Tracking, 40fps at 5M and 60fps at 2.5M.
A 3.0-in. 460k-dot Free-Angle LCD rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down, making it very convenient when shooting at low-angle, high-angle and on a tripod. The 0.2-in. EVF features a 100% field of view, 1,312K-dot equivalent with a 60fps frame rate.
The DMC-FZ200 shoots Full HD Movie 1920 x 1080/60p for progressive recording. Sound is recorded by a stereo zoom microphone using the high-quality Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator. Mechanical noise caused by zooming during movie recording is suppressed to improve the clearness. The Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most of the noise from background wind to help make the human voice to stand out. Active Mode suppresses blur in video recording especially at wide angle while walking. You can select your preferred shooting mode: iA, PASM or Scene mode for movie recording. High-speed videos at 120 fps/240 fps allows slow motion playback. You can also take still images (3.5-megapixel at 16:9) without interrupting video recording. An optional Stereo Microphone DMW-MS1 clearly captures distant sounds in superb quality.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 is for those who desire an all-in-one high quality and powerful camera with a super zoom and full manual control. It’s perfect for photography students and as a travel camera.
