New Panasonic PZ200 Super-Zoom Advanced Point & Shoot Announced

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Panasonic FZ200

Panasonic has just announced their latest super-zoom advanced Point & Shoot camera the FZ200. While Panasonic did not increase the overall focal range on this model from its predecessor the FZ150, it did up the ante with the major highlight being the fact that this new model has a static aperture of 2.8 across the entire focal range of 4.5mm to 108mm ASPH (35mm equivalent of 25mm-600mm). With the FZ150 being widely regarded as the best model in this segment of the camera market, we anxiously await the reviews to see if this new model can retain this same status.

If you want to be alerted when FZ200 pre-orders are available or when the FZ200 is in stock, then be sure to head over to our FZ200 In Stock Tracker. Sign up for our FREE alerts and as soon as we see stock available we will alert you via TXT, email, or browser alerts.

Camera Inventories Extremely Low, Stock Levels Returning When?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

If you haven’t noticed by now, the effects of the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami in Japan are finally being realized with regards to the digital camera market. Inventories are low and numerous “Out of Stock” messages are plastered all over the largest web retailer sites. From Amazon, to B&H Photo, to Adorama, the message is pretty clear that inventories are basically struggling for the majority of the top DSLR cameras out there.

After reviewing our in stock trackers here at NowInStock.net, the cameras which are showing major inventory shortages are the Canon 7D and T3i as well as the professional level Canon 1D Mark IV and 1Ds Mark III. As for Nikon, the hard-to-find models are professional level Nikon D3s and D3x as well as the pro-sumer models of D7000 Body and D700. As for Panasonic, their already super hot Panasonic GH2 has been lacking inventories right when it was starting to meet demand.

If you are having trouble finding these or any other cameras, then be sure to sign up for our FREE in stock alerts. As soon as we see stock available for purchase, we will alert you. Visit our Camera In Stock Trackers to see if stock is available.

Could this Disaster Change Inventory Strategies Going Forward?

What I wonder is will the impending disasters of the future, as there are sure to be more, change the inventory strategies of any of these major camera manufacturers to help sustain or even grow profits and user bases. Will they begin to stock pile cameras locally so that inventories can continue to ship if/when the next disaster occurs? Does it make sense to even do so or do they already do so and have exhausted those inventories?

I guess in order to get to the root of that answer, we would have ask ourselves, if Canon or Nikon had such a strategy in place, would it have made an existing camera user switch to a competitor if their competitor had inventory available? Or would a first time buyer change their mind and get a competitor model because stock was available?

Of the two above questions I feel the later is the most likely scenario to occur. And this is a costly one. Losing an aspiring photographer means losing subsequent lens and accessory sales as well.

Panasonic Cameras Split into Individual Trackers

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Revamped and updated the Panasonic Cameras section this past evening. We now have separate trackers for all current lines we are tracking for Panasonic models. These lines are inclusive of the following series: Gx, GFx, GH, x, and LXx. So, if you happen to wander to the old Panasonic Tracker link on the site and see something you are not used to seeing this will be why. The old Panasonic Cameras In Stock Tracker page is now a category page. And each of the lines have their own separate tracker pages. This will enable more flexibility with timings of each tracker and keep the entire Panasonic cameras section more organized.

If you are looking for a Panasonic GH2, I have added quite a few new items to the tracker from different retailers. Make sure you review these new items and add any you would like to your account to be notified of stock availability. To see the new pages, use the following links:

Panasonic GH2 Tracker >
Panasonic GF2 Tracker >
Panasonic G2 Tracker >
Panasonic LX5 Tracker >

Also, all older models will remain in their respective series  trackers. As new models become available, which should not be for some time, they will fall into their respective trackers.
