Panasonic FZ2500 VS Panasonic FZ300

panasonic-fz2500-vs-panasoThe first big difference we see in the table is the resolution and sensor sizes. You can see that Panasonic FZ2500 features large, 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor, whereas its younger sister, FZ300 carries 12.1-megapixel resolution. Plus, the ISO range of FZ2500 is making difference. Let’s see both the two cameras’ specifications comparison in detail…

Panasonic FZ2500 VS Panasonic FZ300

Image quality– Panasonic FZ2500 implements large, 1-inch 20.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor, assuring incredible sharpness and clarity in the images with minimum noise, even while shooting at lowlight areas. On the other hand, the younger FZ300 feature 12.1-megapixel MOS sensor, plus its sensor size is bit smaller than FZ2500, so we can sure that its image quality will not be as sharp and clear than its elder sister Panasonic, FZ2500.

AF system– well… both of these two cameras feature contrast AF system, plus the AF system in both cameras feature DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology to achieve ultra-high-speed AF of approx. 0.09 sec (or shortens the time to set focus). Thus the two cameras excel in both speed and accuracy.

ISO– If you want an effortless and unobtrusive lowlight shooting, go with Panasonic FZ2500 since the camera sets the maximum sensitivity range of 25600. Moreover, the large MOS Sensor inside the core of FZ2500 boasts a high S/N ratio. As a result, clear images will be achieved with very minimum noise, even when shooting at ISO 12,800. The rich amount of light also helps to produce an impressive defocus with a shallow depth of field. Sadly, you can use the highest sensitivity of 6400 only in FZ300.

Shots– Moreover, you can get 30 extra shots while shooting with FZ300.

After all, most of the specifications of these two cameras look carbon copy to each other, but the weight of FZ300 is surprisingly lighter than FZ2500.

VerdictAs you saw above Panasonic FZ2500 carries remarkable specifications and this is the high-range compact camera with 1″ sensor that cost you around $1200. If you want better specifications, then just go it, but if you have the problem with the budget then you should go with  FZ300, which is available under $600.
