Default Lumix FZ200 -- one year later

Camera was purchased about 10/17/2012 -- Happy Birthday!

Fantastic!! Made in Japan! Love the camera!!! What more could anyone want?

Actually less -- too many setting variations packed in the camera's programming.

Graham H. on youtube has even more videos of the fz200 now.

Besides here on steve's and G.H. on youtube and the FZ200 on flickr,

I'm surprised there aren't more accolades elsewhere on the internet!

Congrats! Glad you enjoy it. I have one waiting for me in the US, to be sent through friends travelling to India. Looks like it will take a little time to reach my hands. In the meantime, let me enjoy your photos!

I watch Graham a lot as I like the camera but an aquaintence has just put a spoke in the wheel for me. She is selling her canon 40d and a lens etc and I am not lsot as to get that or go for the 200 which I do like. I don't want to carry stuff around with me but I am told a dslr gives better pics than a bridge. Oh what to do? HELP.

G'day Eysha

Until you experience an SLR you will never know what suits you 'best'
All I can say is "for me" .... after 40 years of film SLRs I fell in love with the superzoom cameras

I do have a Pentax SLR and it gathers dust: the biggest thing that bothers me with an SLR is being out in the field and the wrong damn lens is on the camera

Eysha.... a DSLR's Image quality will indeed surpass that of any bridge- but much depends on your output- what is your intended use for your images..?
If small to medium size prints or web sharing is your goal,then I'd suggest that maybe the difference in IQ is negligible at such sizes.... and the sheer versatility of the FZ200 can't be beat- and with a "live view" system that actually works...!!

To be honest Simon, i tend to take photos for my artwork as reference photos. They are usually of macro flowers, sports and birds and animals in motion, sometimes family and pets but not for sale, so personal use only.
