Might Get A Panasonic ZS200 To Replace The Full-Frame ‘Canon EOS RP’ I Sold This Week.

by Anura Guruge



Close up MACROS of plants I like to photograph.


When I sold the Canon EOS RP I said I loved my ‘new’ Google Pixel 4.

But, I never said I wouldn’t be getting another camera — ever. That would have been a stretch.

I will probably still use a camera in the foreseeable future.

The Pixel 4 is fine & fun BUT it has its limitations — even for what I do.

The key among these is the lack of a viewfinder and the absence of delicate, manual focusing. I need both of that for the pictures I like to take.

I also ‘resent’ the TINY sensor in phone cameras. This at least as a 1″ sensor. I can live with 1″.

I kind of like Panasonic. I had a Panasonic FZ1000 for over 6 (whole) months, 2015 to 2016. This camera has very similar specs, but in a much more compact form factor.

Looking through my posts I see that I considered its direct precursor, the ZS100, when it was announced. That is good.

I haven’t ordered one yet. Most likely get it from my friends at ‘Cardinal Camera‘. I trust them, and they always give me decent prices.

Stay tuned.
