Summary: I like the FZ150, it's a nice, light camera, easy to use, zoom's great, video works nice. the pictures do get noisy very fast if you crop, but if you shoot so you don't have to crop, it'll be fine. The flash does not work in burst mode, the instruction manuel does not tell you that. It has a bit of shutter lag, low light is not awesome, but works ok. Colors are true for the most part. I replaced a DSLR with the FZ150, and it's not DSLR quality, but it works very nicely.
Summary: I know--hard to believe but this is my first digital camera. Until I chose this camera, I was using a 35mm Canon EOS Rebel. I studied camera reviews for over a month and decided on this one...why this Panasonic? The Leica lens for one, I wanted a CMOS sensor, and I wanted a camera that looked professional. Sure, this isn't a DSLR, but it has all the features needed for starting out with digital photography, and plenty of features I can learn later.
Summary: Bought this camera from Amazon and have shot over 1000 pics thus far. I did previously have the Panasonic FZ 100 which was a very good camera,however the FZ 150 has some definate improvements that won't disapoint. It has a better abilty to function in low light situations and the colors are close to accurate. The video quality is close to that of my $1000.00 Sony camcorder.
Summary: Excellent picture quality for a P&S camera, I'm so glad I did my research first before purchasing this. Almost DSLR quality pictures, this would make a very nice bridge camera, will probably use this most often than my Canon DSLR.
Overall the very high outstanding photo and full HD Video quality for the price

Summary: Hello Panasonic and Amazon for new customers: Pro: Both lens and Sensor is very low distortion for less than $500. Hey' you just got yourself $1200 camcorder plus $600 digital camera all in one. For being built-in stereo microphone is not bad at all. I had use built in flash (without sun glare lens hood) around 10 feet, indoor. Photo was so sharp. But one small problem: Is good thing, 'why?
Summary: We purchased this for a trip to Yellowstone, but my wife continues to use it as her primary, everyday camera. We've taken candid pictures of animals, grandkids, relatives, etc. as well as crafts and flowers, and are quite pleased with the results. The camera handles well , responds quickly and predictably, and the image quality is pretty good. These things we kind of expected. We were pleasantly surprised by the zoom lens.
Summary: I got this camera being a somewhat experienced photographer, and I've learned that this camera is absolutely amazing, I've even learned more from using it than anything else I've read about it, DON'T EVEN HESITATE. The multiple scene modes are great for inexperienced photographers, and the 1080p HD video is the best I've seen by far, almost even movie quality, anyone hoping to shoot amazing pictures or short-movies need to look no further.
Summary: This is a great camera and is my fourth Panasonic (previously owned an FZ18 & FZ28 and currently have TZ5; for me Panasonics are very user friendly with lots of capabilities...and I was a Nikon FM-35mm kinda girl). I bought it this past February and taking pics has not been the same for me. Never thought I'd want a flipout screen or video capability and now I don't know how I took pics without them! Now I want GPS!
