I bought this camera because of past ownership of 4 other Lumix digital models and ratings I read. This is the best digital camera I have come across. It beats D SLR's because 1 lens zooms from 25-600 35mm equivalent = a lot in one lens. And the Zeiss lens takes great resolution pix with the 12.1 mp CMOS sensor. The image stabilization on these cameras is as good as it gets, I take hand-held shots at full zoom (30x optical=600 mm eq) with great resolution, though I do suggest a sand bag or tripod for these type shots and especailly for night light pix. I've printed 16x20 pix from this camera and the resolution is excellent, better than my old film Nikons. Battery life is very good, I've never run it out even taking over 300 full-res pix in a day. The charger will work fine in 110 or 220, so no need for a tranformer. This camera is not a pocket camera, but it's features are worth packing around a small, light-weight case. The HD video quality is very good played on an HD TV. I'd recommend this camera to all serious enthusiats who want a lot in one oight-weight package, and do not want to pack around a D SLR.
I love the Panasonic camera, this is my 4th I've had. This model has a hotshoe for external flash, the rotating lcd screen, and 24x optical zoom. You are able to screw on filters, etc to the lense. The only thing I haven't liked about these cameras is that the battery/SD card slot is on the bottom, and if you use a tripod, you must take it off the tripod to change the battery or SD card. That inconvenience was not enough to deter me from getting another Panasonic. I love the clear pictures I get, and many people comment all the time about the nice pictures it takes. The movie feature is activated by pressing the red button on the top, after you set the dial to movies. It takes great HD movies as well as ability to use zoom in the movie. I'm looking forward to taking the pictures for our church photo directory, where I can really put it to the test. I didn't want to invest in a DSLR camera, this is the next best thing for me. Get one, you won't be disappointed.
Before buying this camera I had read a lot of reviews with different minds about it. Some people says it has good zoom and high quality video, some says it's very noisy. So i was ready for most disadvantages of this camera. I would like to collect all pros and cons i've noticed so far.
1) Camera has wide angle, it is very good for shooting sceneries, but it means that 24x zoom is not so significant if you'd compare with non-wide angle camera (about 1,5 times difference)
2) 12 MP and 24x zoom is definitely maximum for 1/2.33" matrix
3)Camera has RAW, but i don't use it. May be, you'll find this option very important. Especially for noisy pictures.
4)Camera has good design, it is easy and small(i expected larger size)
5)Quality of video is really good
6) I compared this camera with canon SX40 and Fuji. Fuji has more attractive design it feels better in my hands and i don't know why i didn't buy it. Canon has more smooth picture on high ISO, but design is very bad, it feels bad in hands and it is very cheap and plasticky.
7)High ISO is the most weak point for this camera. You can use maximum zoom only on sunny days. Also you have to use tripod to get high quality picture.
So if camera has good design, good video but cannot make good pictures on high ISO, is it good camera? Yes, if you don't want to take more heavy and expensive camera. You'll get what you pay for.
The camera perfectly shooting, both a photo and video, at it many very convenient operating modes it is possible to adjust for any conditions of shooting, convenience of use above any praises, the big zoom, there is an intellectual mode convenient for novice users, in general I have not found lacks of it, all is very convenient and organic, a fine choice - anyway you will not regret the money!
First of all !!! I did not buy Panasonic Lumix DMC - FZ150 Camera.
There was just very confusing photo and description of that camera, but in fact seller was selling kit for it? which is actually way to waste money. I tried to check whether seller is going to sell camera for that funny price and had to buy the kit instead. May be I was very tired (in the middle of the night) making that crazy purchase and therefor pressed "buy" button, but I don't think that seller's confusing way to sell needless kit is respectable. The bag is too small, filters are low quality, (fluorescent filter is not needed for digital camera at all), made by unknown brand and batteries too! screen protector is also not needed for fully articulated display. The only part of the kit which I can use ( on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, which I bought at Amazon.com) is 16 GB memory card.
