Kind of Camera

Photography Skillset

Point and shoot - If you're not quite the expert yet or you're just getting started in the world of photography, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 will satisfy your needs.

Video skill level

Simple clips - As a videography noob, this Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 video camera should be sufficient for your needs.

Even though recording videos is a passion, you're not necessarily looking to go pro. You're content with making tweaks to a couple of settings to suit the shot you're about to take. The Lumix DMC-ZS100 is very accessible which makes it suitable for this.

Video Scenarios

Streaming video live is a great way to share your experiences and this camera from Panasonic provides a couple of connectivity options to help you with this.

Recording every moment of the day's events is precious and this device certainly delivers. While the camera is rolling it has a handy Image stabilization feature built-in.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 is a great companion to have.

For your Video posts - This camera comes with an image stabilizer which reduces any wobbling in your recordings. In addition, the size of the image sensor (13.2 x 8.8 mm mm), helps with the actual quality of the recorded image. It also packs in Wi-Fi in this neat package.

Other Video needs

Ultra High Definition - you'll be able to capture immersive and highly detailed footage with this camera's 4K capability.

If you're looking for that silky-smooth rendering of your videos, this camera has got it as its able to handle 60 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

Breathtaking transitions such as rolling clouds or city lights can captured as a time-lapse using the Panasonic's in-built intervalometer

Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the Lumix DMC-ZS100 is an easy recommendation for this.

Its important to ensure the celebrant (or special guests) are in clear view in every photo taken. Keeping them in focus while they're moving about is one of the great features that comes with the Lumix DMC-ZS100.

Whether it's golf or tennis and everything in-between, the Tracking Focus capability in this camera allows you maintain your subject as the centre of attention even while in motion. It's Continuous Shooting Mode also helps take multiple shots in a couple of seconds allowing you assess a set of options you can pick from.

Taking photos while underwater is a lot of fun. You'll be able to bathe the subject of your photograph with the colours and hues only found when taking shots in an aquatic environment.

Sometimes while on sightseeing or on a tour, you can only observe things from a distance. Which is why the zoom capability on this camera comes in handy in that situation.

From ants to zebras, a camera for nature's mosaic needs to have a great image sensor which is why the 13.2 x 8.8 mm (mm) that comes with this model works well for this scenario. It comes with a Continuous Shooting Mode allowing you to take successive shots rapidly. Zoom capabilities are present as well which is great.

Composing photographs of landscapes is subject to the lighting conditions that you're faced with. The 13.2 x 8.8 mm(mm) Image Sensor Size on this model play a big role in this. Also, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 has a variety of scene modes which can be selected to suit the shot you're preparing to take.

Other considerations

It looks simple, capable and doesn't stand out in any particular way.
