Panasonic Lumix FX150

Digital Photography Interface
20 July 2009
  • Conclusion: And the megapixel race continues with Panasonic making an entry into the group of 14.7 megapixel compact cameras with the Lumix FX150. The Lumix FX150 packs a lot of fancy and nifty features into its no-nonsense, compact design. The ‘typically Lumix’ FX150 keeps a very low-profile, especially in black, as it looks “like just another camera”; you wouldn’t expect such a small camera to be loaded with megapixels.
  • Pros: Good image quality; the camera even removes color fringing, Stylish design; powerful flash and clear LCD, Best battery life among super high resolution compacts, Impressive performance, Full manual mode, with exposure/color bracketing features and advanced white balance adjustment, RAW image mode; camera comes with very capable RAW processing software, HD movie mode and wide-angle lens add versatility
  • Cons: Some detail loss at ISO 400 above (use RAW mode or turn NR down), No red-eye removal or image brighten features in playback mode, Lacks a separate control dial of any kind, No aperture/shutter priority modes or manual focus, Can’t operate zoom while recording a movie

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150

28 June 2009
  • Summary: We're not that keen on some aspects of the styling, but if that's our only complaint then the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 is clearly doing something right. A more-than-capable snapper, the FX150 isn't as sexy as some of its stablemates but still wins over most other point-and-shoots
  • Pros: Decent pictures; wideangle lens; excellent build quality.
  • Cons: Some styling cues; limited aperture control.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix FX150 has really impressed me in the few weeks that I have been using it. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, as it has been a few years since I last owned a point-n-shoot camera and the few that I have used since then haven't impressed me one bit. Starting with the overall design, Panasonic did a good job with the look and feel of the camera. Although compact, it feels nice when holding and using.

  • Conclusion: High resolution Panasonic Lumix FX150 digital camera Now what is the surplus value of the high resolution on a compact camera such as the Panasonic LUMIX FX150? Not a lot, in fact, even unnecessary for 99% of the pictures that you will make with this type of camera, and the high resolution will certainly not add to the image quality.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 Review

Digital Camera Review
13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Like cars, boats, and audio/video components, cameras get much more interesting as you move toward the upper end of the product range. Point-and-shoot digital camera buyers usually want the longest zooms, the hottest features, the most megapixels, and the cheapest prices they can get.
  • Pros: Elegant, stylish, compact, feature rich, Excellent Leica zoom, Very good to excellent image quality, Manual exposure controls
  • Cons: No optical viewfinder, Noisy images, Weird compass switch

  • Summary: Not only can you capture JPEG images and movies, but the FX150 also records original photos in the RAW file format and comes bundled with the SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3.0SE software application, enabling the user to freely adjust RAW data settings such as exposure bias and white balance even after shooting for greater editing and image development.

  • Excerpt: It's no secret that Panasonic and Leica have been sharing much of their compact camera designs for a few years now, and the FX150 shares an almost identical design and button placement to the Leica C-Lux 2.

  • Summary: : Compared to the Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS - the Canon has the slight edge in image quality, with lower noise, and better detail, while the Panasonic Lumix FX150 has the edge in features and offers a more complete package at a lower price. The Panasonic has all the features of the Canon, but also offers a wide angle lens, and an excellent video mode. Which one you choose depends which you prioritise, features and a lower price or image quality and lower noise.
  • Pros: Very easy to use, Compact and stylish metal body, Very good build quality and switches, Good image quality - excellent colour, Wide angle 3.6x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, Intelligent ISO / Exposure / Intelligent AUTO mode will automatically set ISO, Shutter speed, Subject type etc, Excellent 2.7" screen - works well in bright sunlight, Impressive detail at ISO100, Very good macro mode, Quick performance - 2fps continuous shooting, Focus assist ...
  • Cons: Noise visible at ISO100, Slightly weak flash, some red-eye, Tripod mount positioned to the far left., Some purple fringing (but generally very low)
