Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100

16 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is better

than the average

1.Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
11fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
2.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
3.Appreciably better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)
vs 2,160 x 60fps (best: Canon EOS 1D X Mark II)
4.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
81.2mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
6.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
7.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
8.A shade bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
9.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
10.Clearly less shutter lag
0.3svs 16.3s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
11.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
12.Sizably greater zoom range
24xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
13.Reasonably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
14.Noticeably longer maximum focal length
600mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
15.Sizably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
16.Distinctly shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
