A far-reaching zoom lens can be a powerful tool for photographers, and the Panasonic ZS200 works that feature into a compact package. The newly released camera comes stock with a Leica-designed 24-360x adjustable lens, giving it an impressive degree of zoom length despite its relatively small form factor.
By physical necessity, zoom lenses need to be long, as the increased focal length is what allows for precise and sharp images of objects at a distance. Traditionally, this has meant that pocket digital cameras have either forgone zoom lenses entirely or required a non-stock lens as an add-on. Thanks to a clever telescoping system, the Panasonic ZS200 is able to provide long distance zoom without having to get much bigger than a standard point-and-shoot camera.
