Panasonic FZ200

12.1 megapixel, EVF, 24.00x Zoom

It's a rare superzoom camera that features an f/2.8 lens -- especially a Leica-branded 24x zoom lens that maintains that constant max aperture throughout its range. But that's exactly what the Panasonic FZ200 delivers and more. With an equivalent reach of 25-600mm, full-res continuous shooting at 12 frames per second and Full HD 1080p video recording, the FZ200 provides a ton of photographic flexibility to casual photographers and enthusiasts alike.

Panasonic G5

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

Updating the performance and capabilities of the Lumix G3, Panasonic has improved an already strong performer. A subtle change of button position and functionality makes this compact shooter a standout in the Micro Four Thirds crowd.

Panasonic GF5

12.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

In refreshing its modestly-sized, modestly-priced touchscreen mirrorless camera, Panasonic has wisely left the sensor resolution unchanged. Instead, the Panasonic GF5 brings lower noise levels, performance improvements, and some worthwhile improvements to UI and ergonomics.

image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 digital camera

Panasonic GH3

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

The Panasonic GH3 marks a huge improvement over the much-beloved GH2, both in still photography and video capabilities, thanks to a brand new 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor and one of the deepest feature sets we've ever seen on a mirrorless, compact system camera. In particular, the GH3 is loaded with professional-level filmmaking features, including full 1080p video at 60fps, bit rates as high as 72 Mbps, and an SMPTE Time Code option, along with nearly a dozen other premium extras you won't find on DSLRs twice its price. To top it all off, the GH3 boasts a more durable, weatherized body than the GH2, and a redesigned interface with plenty of easy-to-access buttons for making changes on the fly.

Released December 2012

Panasonic GH4

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

The Panasonic GH4 takes the impressive specs and performance of the GH3 and kicks them up a notch -- a big notch-- with faster burst shooting, quicker AF and 4K video, making the GH4 at home in the hands of not only advanced and professional still photographers, but also in the hands of advanced and professional videographers.

Released April 2014

image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 digital camera

Panasonic GM1

16.0 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 2.67x Zoom

The tiny Panasonic GM1 features the same sensor and processor as its larger sibling, the GX7, but Panasonic has done some innovative engineering to pack all that power into such a small and pocketable digital camera. Check out our Panasonic GM1 review to see why this camera was voted the Best Pocket Interchangeable Lens Camera of 2013!

Panasonic GX1

16.0 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

Easy to carry, yet not too small, the Panasonic GX1 offers a lot to the photography enthusiast who's looking for a compact system camera. It offers compatibility with a growing set of high-quality lenses, and is a lot of fun to use.

image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 digital camera

Panasonic GX7

16.0 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

The Panasonic GX7 may just be the Micro Four Thirds model we've all been waiting for, offering a ton of advanced features -- including a tilting electronic viewfinder, touchscreen LCD and robust Wi-Fi capabilities -- while capturing very good still images and great video. It may not rank the best in any one specific area, but the GX7 is the rare compact system camera that doesn't sacrifice much either, delivering all-around great performance for a reasonable price. It hits a sweet spot that should surely appeal to both pros looking for a compact, everyday alternative to their bulky DSLRs as well as a smart and sophisticated step-up model for amateur shooters.

Panasonic TS4

12.1 megapixel, Compact, 4.60x Zoom

Offering an excellent set of features in a terrific body design, the Panasonic TS4 is great for snapshots in wet, wild conditions, but it falls short for other uses, thanks to diminishing image quality as you zoom from wide-angle.

Released March 2012

 

Express Review

image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 digital camera

Panasonic TS5

16.1 megapixel, Compact, 4.60x Zoom

The Panasonic TS5 waterproof camera should thrill photo geeks who love advanced features and functionality. It's the first camera in its class to deliver advanced Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities that includes remote capture when paired with a smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the TS5 boasts full 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second and 10fps full-res still burst shooting. Unfortunately, the TS5's image quality proved to be mediocre overall, and its dedicated underwater mode photos came out somewhat flat with muted colors. Still, it could be the right compact waterproof model for those who demand the latest high tech gadgetry.

Panasonic ZS20

Though it has an impressive set of features and a presumably decent 20x zoom lens, the Panasonic ZS20 again disappoints in the image quality department. It's better than its predecessor, but not by enough.
