PANASONIC CANADA ANNOUNCES THE NEW LUMIX DC-ZS200 TRAVEL ZOOM CAMERA
This New Addition to the Popular Travel Zoom Series Boasts Powerful 15x Optical Zoom in a Compact Body
Mississauga, ON (February 13, 2018) – Panasonic Canada is proud to introduce the LUMIX DC-ZS200, the newest flagship camera of the popular Travel Zoom series. The compact LUMIX DC-ZS200 is equipped with a 24mm ultra-wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens and enhanced 15x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 24-360mm). The camera also includes 5-Axis HYBRID Optical Image Stabilizer Plus*1 to suppress hand-shake in both photo and video recording. For added creativity the LUMIX DC-ZS200 integrates a new L.Monochrome mode in Photo Style for monochrome images with rich B/W film gradation.
The Panasonic LUMIX DC-ZS200 will be available at select Canadian retailers and on the Panasonic eStore in April with an MSRP of $1099.99 (CDN).
The camera’s 1-inch MOS sensor produces high-quality images with stunning details
The combination of a High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine delivers up to ISO 12,800 for high sensitivity quality beyond the reach of most other digital compacts. And, an upgraded Live View Finder (LVF) integrates a new 0.21-inch, 2,330K-dot equivalent LVF to provide a high magnification ratio of approximately 1.45x/0.53x (35mm camera equivalent). Both LVF and a 3-in. touchscreen display provide approximately 100 per cent field of view. The LUMIX DC-ZS200 boasts exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity with minimum distortion and flare. This new lens system also enables stunning close-up shots with its 3cm macro capability.
4K video recording is every bit as stunning with high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840×2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4
The LUMIX DC-ZS200 features 4K PHOTO which allows users to capture memorable moments by extracting single frames from 4K burst files shot at 30 fps to save as 8-megapixel equivalent images. Auto-Marking and Sequence Composition, included in addition to Post-Focus and Focus-Stacking, make 4K PHOTO even easier to use.
High-speed and high-precision AF
The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology*2 and excels in both speed and accuracy for ultra-fast auto focusing in approximately 0.1 sec*3.
Intuitive design to capture creative vision
The independent dials and Control Ring located on the lens barrel provide an intuitive way to capture creative vision. Smoother control of exposure and zoom allows users to concentrate on framing the perfect picture and press the shutter at the perfect moment. It also provides easier access to frequently-used settings such as aperture, shutter speed, focus, filter effect and scene mode. For even more precise control over focusing, the LUMIX DC-ZS200 also boasts a Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in manual focus mode to ensure users know exactly where the focus is.
Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 2.4GHz (IEEE802.11b/g/n)
The LUMIX DC-ZS200 integrates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. Once the camera is connected to a smartphone or tablet installed with the Panasonic Image App for iOS / Android, users can shoot, browse and share images remotely. They can also choose the quality of images to transfer using the Image App. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) enables a constant connection with a smartphone/tablet with minimum power consumption. This activates the camera by simply using a smartphone/tablet or to automatically add GPS geotags on the photos.
- Long battery life and AC/USB Power Charging
Thanks to a newly adopted eco30fps mode, the LUMIX DC-ZS200 provides long battery life for approximately 370 pictures (when using a rear monitor) per charge. The battery is recharged via AC or USB according to user convenience.
- Exposure / WB / Focus / Aperture Bracket
Focus Bracket and Aperture Bracket are new additions to the conventional Exposure Bracket and WB Bracket to let users choose their best shots later. In Focus Bracket, a maximum 999 images can be shot with different focus points. The Aperture Bracket enables multiple shots with different depths of field.
- In-Camera RAW Data Development
The LUMIX DC-ZS200 can shoot images in RAW and develop them in-camera.
