Nice size

Only slightly bigger than Sony's RX100 series, the ZS100 at least has a slight grip.

Ring around the lens

As is common among enthusiast compacts, the ZS100 has a ring on the lens that you can program for specific functions, such as adjusting aperture or shutter speed.

Touchscreen operation

You'll find the typical Panasonic touchscreen interface on the ZS100.

Viewfinder

It's a bit smaller than the one on the later RX100 models, but it doesn't require you to pop it up, which makes it slightly more enjoyable to use.

Connectors

You charge the battery via USB.

Post Focus

The new Post Focus capability -- choosing one out of a burst that has the focus area you want -- is a mode you shoot in that's enabled by pressing that Fn2 button.

Controls

The 4K shooting modes are accessible via the Fn1 button instead of on the mode dial, where they've been on other Panasonic compacts.

Grip!

It's not terribly deep, but given many manufacturers' aversion to putting grips on compacts these days, I'm surprised it's got one at all.

No hot shoe

The lack of a hot shoe may dissuade some buyers who might consider it instead of the LX100.

Lens

Though the lens's maximum aperture rises to f5.9 as you go through the zoom range, given that it extends out to 250mm equivalent that's not bad. What matters is how quickly you get there.

Tilt-a-flash

As mentioned previously, you can tilt the flash while shooting to bounce the light.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
