Panasonic has always been near the top of the digital camera pile when it comes to travel-zoom compacts, thanks to its aptly named ‘TZ’ series (known as the 'ZS' line in the US). The SZ200 / TZ200 is the latest premium model and it has a lot going for it.

For starters, it packs a larger-than-average 1in sensor with a respectable 20.1MP. This is crammed into a chassis that's a bit too large for a jeans pocket but slips comfortably into a day bag, and is married to a handy 15x optical zoom that starts out at an ultra wide-angle 24mm equivalent setting, running up to 360mm at the telephoto end (in 35mm terms).

Perfect holiday companion

Displaying its enthusiast-enticing mettle, the ZS200 provides a useful (if small) 2.3million-dot resolution electronic viewfinder, plus a 3in rear monitor with 1.24million dots. This rear display is fixed to the body – rather than angle adjustable – although, helpfully, it's sensitive to touch. 

Being a Panasonic product, we also get the ability to capture 4K video clips, at a speed of up to 30fps, and it's also possible to extract 8MP stills from them if desired. Meanwhile, creative shooting modes include an artsy monochrome filter as well as Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual control. Raw shooting is also on hand for those wanting to process their images later on.

Any camera that trades on the scope of its zoom needs a decent anti-shake system, and here Panasonic offers the belt and braces of optical image stabilisation for stills plus five-axis stabilisation for video. Hand-held, low-light shooting is further aided by a core light sensitivity range of ISO 125 to 12,800, which is expandable to ISO 80-25,600. That said, the AF system will struggle to focus if light levels are too poor. 

Battery life is good for a respectable 350 shots if using the LCD screen, although this drops slightly to 300 if you prefer to use the EVF for composition. It's not the cheapest compact right now, even if it does sport a 1in sensor, but if you need a small, light and solidly specced performer for your travels, the ZS200 has much to recommend it.
