Reviews and Problems with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150
Showing 11-20 of 310
Panasonic was the right choice for me
18 June 2012
Summary: I wanted a travel camera with a long zoom so trying to decide between FZ150 and Nikon P510. After trying the Nikon at a store and reading many reviews on both, I decided on the Panasonic even though the Nikon had a much longer zoom.
For quality and features, this is a surefire winner!

Summary: Pros: Zoom range and maximum zoom image quality are superb. Full manual over-ride, and lots of user-adjustable programs make this appeal to experienced photographers, while the results from fully automatic settings are high quality. Great quality movies!
Summary: My journey as a photographer has seen me use similar ultra zooms ( ) before transitioning to a SLR ( ) then another ( ) and back to this. Well sorta, as I still have my D90 and love it's image quality.
Great burst mode for sports and a long-lasting battery

Summary: I've had this camera for nearly a month. I bought it to replace a Panasonic FZ-28 because I was having difficulty following the action in sporting events using the fastest full-frame (10 megapixel) burst mode with refocusing between shots, which was about 2 frames per second.
Summary: The main competition for me was the Canon SX40-HS. But it has firmware that severely limits its functionality for my purposes (iso limits, lack of RAW support, etc.). It would otherwise be a very capable camera.
Summary: After weeks of read reviews and see videos, finally i came with the decision to buy this one. The problem was the price, after a moment of deliberation, i said to my myself, why not? then a purchased used at $390 plus prime services, from Warehouse Deals.
Summary: This review will be short. There are a couple of well-written long reviews that cover many technical details that I will not try to repeat. I am a long-time amateur photographer who has used and owns many SLR models as well as DSLRs and mirrorless compacts.
Summary: It came down to the new Nikon P510 and the Panasonic fz150, both super zooms using the same three digits in their names. The 42x zoom of the Nikon was very tempting, but ultimately I chose the Panasonic for its extra features, the great price I lucked upon, and its familiarity.
Excerpt: This FZ150 I'M particularly using for video. Within some months it was a "hard work" to find out the best settings for several needs. Because the camera offers so very many options that a concerning learning curve is the implication.
