Summary: this camera, man. what a bummer. i have a lumix gf-1 and it rocks. i have a canon 12 megapixel point and shoot. it's ok. i thought this would be the p&s of dreams. it's the p.o.s of dreams. raw format. pretty rad, right? not if the raw files are noisy as the long island expressway. my canon powershot 3100 is considerably better and i found it for $7 at a thrift shop. the megapixel myth is out of control. save yo cash!
Summary: I bought this camera for the great features, e.g., 14 Mpix, manual exposure mode, and RAW file capabilities. The first one I received produced poorly focused and extremely noisy images. I quickly returned it for a replacement. The replacement was substantially better, but it still exhibited serious noise in the images. I have an SLR camera that produces much cleaner pictures at ISO 3200 than the Panasonic did at ISO 100.
Summary: This camera failed me when it counted the most. I have been using a trusted Casio EX-Z850 for years and it was time to upgrade. The FX150 looked good on paper with a nice resolution and image stabilization, etc. First day of use, I actually had a need for the camera. I am a pilot and I fly old airplanes. We were supposed to fly in formation with a rare airplane that just got restored. I took the camera in my pocket and managed to get 3-4 shots in difficult conditions.
Summary: Bonjour, j'ai fait l'acquisition d'un Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX-150 il y a moins d'un an. Celui-ci a cessé de fonctionner mentionnant qu'il y avait une "erreur système". Depuis 2 mois ! l'appareil est en réparation.
