Help me decide....HX400 vs FZ200

Post by smiffy »

I'm looking for a bridge camera and am torn between two models.

The Sony HX400 and the Panasonic FZ200. I've owned earlier versions from both manufacturers; a Sony H5, and the Panasonic FZ28.

The Sony has Wifi, GPS, and longer zoom, but the Panasonic has a constant aperture of 2.8

I do like cameras with GPS (I have a Panasonic FT4), especially for holiday use, not sure about Wifi unless it lets you shoot remotely (i don't know if the Sony supports this).

There are only 10 types of people who understand binary.... those who do and those who don't!

as they are both 2/3 sensors the Sony has a 35mm max equiv of 1225mm and the Panny 600mm. I'd lean towards the better optics of the panny though. Faster lenses are always going to perform better.
