Panasonic unveils new Lumix DMC-FZ200 camera with 24x superzoom
Panasonic is bound to grab a lot of attention with its latest release, the Lumix DMC-FZ200. In essence a 24x superzoom that includes a constant-F2.8 lens, this latest addition to the Lumix line packs a high-resolution 1.3m dot equivalent electronic viewfinder and is capable of capturing high-quality images using the zoom to its fullest, without having to tweak the ISO settings!
