Resolution- No changes made neither in resolution nor in Sensor size of FZ300 and FZ200 it means the same quality of images we could expect from both the twos. However it’s poor that new FZ300 also been implemented with the same sensor size even resolution also.
Low pass filter- No place for Low pass filter in FZ200 that makes the camera much capable to grab more details of the subject as a result the images formed will be more clarity but you don’t expect that details from FZ300 because low pass filter paired within the camera will fail to capture the details of the images.
Image Stabilization- If you feel problem with shaking camera then be sure that the FZ300 whose lens has been engineered with 5 Axis IS will correct you all errors of your unwanted shaking hands and promises you to deliver blur free images but FZ200 has optical IS which is of low quality as compared to FZ300.
Shutter speed- Faster shutter speed of FZ300 help s you in freeze the motion of the objects moving faster with increasing exposure time and the conclusion is your images will not be eaten by blur but these things aren’t possible with the slow shutter speeds of the FZ200.
Video- High-resolution QFHD 4K video recording can be enjoyed with FZ300 in 3840×2160 at 30p (60Hz) or 24p in MP4 while Full HD is the only limited strength of video recording with FZ200.
Display- For image composition and playback s the 3.0″ 1.04m-dot rear OLED monitor has a free angle, has been integrated in FZ300 hat can be tilted and swivel design to support viewing from a variety of angles.
Shots- Maximum numbers of shots can be taken with FZ200 that is upto 540 shot means the backup of the battery is better as compared to FZ300.
Wi-Fi – You can share your images and videos by using the built in wifi of the FZ300 by just connecting it to your friends or your relatives smartphone, tabs etc whereas FZ doesn’t have built in WiFi.
Verdicts- We think one shouldn’t be in a dilemma between the twos and don’t be hesitate to choose Panasonic FZ300, really premium camera.
