Panasonic Lumix FX150 Digital Camera

  • 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.

  • 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...

Digital Camera Review
13 February 2009
  • Summary: 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: 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.

  • Conclusion: This is a camera for someone who takes photography seriously – a digital SLR user who’s traveling light, perhaps. Build quality is simply superb, from that beautiful Leica lens to the razor sharp 2.7-in LCD display.
  • Pros: Size still matters and if you’re after the biggest resolutions possible, the FX150 boasts enormous, smooth 14.7MP images shot through a crystal-clear Leica lens. This has a wider (3.6x) range than most compacts, including a super-wide 28mm wideangle setting that’s great for shooting big crowds an...
  • Cons: The breadth and depth of the FX150 ’s features mark it out as a camera for an enthusiast rather than a point-and-shooter. Mastering the 24 different scene modes alone (which include settings to simulate old negative film and even pin-hole cameras) could take weeks. It’s compact but thicker than o...
