Reviews and Problems with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150
Showing 11-20 of 328
My best overall digital camera recommendation.
4 November 2012
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Excellent product and service, very pleased with my new Lumix

Summary: I am still learning all the features, but it was easy to figure out from day one. The picture quality is excellent and I love the zoom lens. Compare to other cameras I've owned, the Lumix is loaded with excellent features and has more capacity I ever expect to need. The vendor service was great too, received the cameara just a few days after bought.
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: 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.
Terrific camera to grow from beginner to professional

Summary: This review is for beginner to intermediate photographers. 2012 This is a cost-effective and versatile performance state of the art camera for the beginner photographer who expects to get better and more creative with practice. The iA (intelligent auto) feature is perfect for the newbie who just wants to start snapping a point and shoot.
Summary: I have used several of these and am always pleased with the results. For an all-in-one easy carry camera (especially for travel), it can't be beat. I do not take shots in low light at an extended zoom as they will not be comparable to a DSLR lens. You will be disappointed Take your shots at no higher than 400 ISO and realize that hand-held cameras at extended zoom are a challenge and you will not be unhappy.
Summary: You will not have the advantage of using semi-pro or pro glass with this camera. But for grab and run shots it is a very capable camera for most everyday shots, exceeding the usefulness and capability of most point and shoots.
Pros: Fast power up and response in most all modes., Video for it's class slightly exceeds it's single shot performance., Color and sharpness will be above average for most users under most conditions.
Cons: Flash performance is just 'ok'. External flash would help., Some washout of highlights., Audio tinny through the speaker but that's really a nitpick., Undecided about build quality, feels a little cheap in some aspects time will tell over the long haul.
Summary: I won't discuss all the features this camera has, because that has been covered by many other reviewers. What I will say is that the quality of the lens on this camera is one of the best and most astonishing surprises I've ever experienced. I bought it just before heading to a family reunion--we were simply too limited on luggage for me to take my DSLR, but I knew I would need zoom capability, and 24X is all I care to have in this type of camera.
